Our Nation’s Best Sports, a Fort Worth-based firm that buys and distributes sporting goods to more than 300 retailers, has completed its deal to buy a nearly 14-acre site off of Fossil Creek Boulevard, where it will begin building a 60,000-square-foot office and distribution center.

Company President Jim Chandley said two offices will be consolidated at the new location, which is near Stratum Drive. The company has 43 employees.

“This is a good chance to bring everyone back together,” he said.

The site is being replatted and once that is done, they’ll be able to file for building permits, Chandley said. He said he expects construction to start in August and be completed in about six months.

The Fort Worth City Council in May approved a 10-year, 50 percent tax abatement on the project, which potentially provides a rebate of $126,925.

The land was sold by the Nancy Ann and Ray L. Hunt Foundation in Dallas.

Grapevine distribution center sold

Northfield Distribution Center in Grapevine has been bought by EastGroup Properties, a Jackson, Miss.-based real estate investment trust for $70.7 million.

The purchase increases EastGroup’s ownership to 2.9 million square feet in the Dallas area, said David Hoster II, EastGroup’s president and CEO. Its portfolio has 33 million square feet. EastGroup focuses on development and acquisitions in Florida, Texas, Arizona, California and North Carolina.
