Taylor and Shirlee Gandy have sold another downtown Fort Worth property, this one at the northeast corner of Houston and Ninth streets across from the Fort Worth Convention Center.

The 10,931-square-foot former savings and loan building was sold to 915 Houston Llc., an entity of real estate investor and developer Clay Mazur, principal of Mazur Capital in Fort Worth, records show.

In 2012, Mazur’s 1401 Foch L.P. bought the former Goldthwaite’s building and property at the south end of Foch Street near the entrance to Trinity Park. Several years ago, Mazur was also involved in developing the Capital Bar and the Magnolia Motor Lounge at Norwood and Morton streets, near West Seventh.

Scott Lowe with Vision Commercial, who represented the Gandy’s Ron Investments, said the buyer plans to repurpose the building, built in 1959, as a restaurant.

Mazur did not return phone calls seeking comment. Jordan Piper with Piper Commercial represented the buyer.

The Gandys also recently sold the former Rodeo Steakhouse building at 1309 Calhoun St. to Tony Formby, chief executive of 2x4 Brewing & Imports. The one-time investor in Fort Worth’s Rahr & Sons Brewing plans a distillery there.

Leon Capital buys Centreport land

The land is part of the former Greater Southwest International Airport. Fort Worth started selling the airport land more than 30 years ago.

Fernando De Leon is the founder and CEO of Leon Capital Group, a real estate investment and development firm with approximately $2 billion in assets under management, according to its website.

Leon Capital Group also recently bought five acres at the southwest corner of Interstate 35W and Texas 114 near the Texas Motor Speedway for a shopping center. Edward Bogel and David Davidson Jr. with Venture Commercial negotiated the sale.
