FORT WORTH – (April 20, 2022) – Velocis, a private equity real estate investment management firm, acquired almost 8.5 acres off I-20 in Fort Worth adjacent to the Texas Health Hospital in Willow Park, to build two speculative medical offices buildings (MOBs) totaling 100,000 square feet.

“This project will deliver Class A medical office space to a growing medical node in Willow Park that is serving the explosive population growth and strong demographics,” says Velocis Co-Founder and Partner Mike Lewis. 

The site is off I-20 in Willow Park in the center of the dynamic growth corridor between Weatherford and Fort Worth. The price of the land was not disclosed. 

The project includes two speculative MOBs; one will be three stories totaling 60,000 square feet and the other will be two stories totaling 40,000 square feet. Construction is slated to start this year with a 2023 targeted completion. JLL’s Ethan Garner, who leads their Healthcare and Life Science practice, will handle leasing for the buildings.

“This development is the culmination of years of planning that will enhance the quality of life for West Fort Worth for future generations.
