A former Furniture Warehouse has been acquired for a retail development along South Arlington’s Cooper Street.

A retailer has been confirmed to occupy part of the 35,417-square-foot building, with another business negotiating for the balance of the 3500 S. Cooper St. space, according to developer Vaquero Ventures of Fort Worth.

Selling the property was EKIM Partners of Fort Worth, with Bradford Commercial Real Estates Services of Dallas brokering the sale.

"During the feasibility phase, Vaquero asked me to market the balance of the space. I was surprised at the velocity of activity for the listing and the future redeveloped space," said Nick Talley of Bradford Commercial in a news release.

The 4.06-acre property, with fenced yard and storage buildings, drew at least a dozen tours and four offers, primarily sparking interest from the industrial sector. The property is located near Interstate 20 and Texas 360. The closing was held within 120 days of the property becoming available.
