A Dallas limited liability company, #40 Real Estate Partnership, paid $862,000 last month for the Consolidated Pipe & Supply Co. storage warehouse in the Rose City area of North Little Rock.
The building at 4000 Phillips Road has 37,700 square feet and was built in 1980. It was appraised at $1.1 million this year. The transaction was a sale-leaseback of Consolidated Pipe's building, said John Ramey, the branch manager.
"We're moving to a new building in southwest Little Rock and we're doing the same arrangement there," Ramey said.
Consolidated Pipe bought the Frito-Lay building in southwest Little Rock and Frito-Lay is moving to the port area, Ramey said. But Frito-Lay's building will not be ready until the end of this month. So Frito-Lay is leasing the building from Consolidated Pipe until Frito-Lay's new building is ready, Ramey said.
Consolidated Pipe is based in Birmingham, Ala., and has about 50 offices primarily in the Southeast. It recently opened an office in Springdale.
The real estate partnership borrowed $733,000 from Frost Bank in San Antonio to help finance the transaction. The mortgage matures in 2029.
Randal Ensch, manager of #40 Real Estate Partnership, signed the mortgage.
The seller was Consolidated Pipe & Supply Co. Barry Howton, secretary and treasurer of Consolidated Pipe, signed the deed.
