One of downtown Fort Worth’s biggest office campuses is for sale.

The two-tower City Place complex has more than 550,000 square feet of office space on downtown’s northwest side.

The four-block commercial building complex was built in 1976 as the Tandy Center, an office and retail mixed-use project that housed the headquarters for Radio Shack’s parent firm.

The property is owned by Dallas-based Spire Realty Group, which has spent more than $20 million on upgrades to the buildings.

City Place also has five restaurants, two fitness centers and a conference center. The buildings are 78% leased. Commercial property firm Newmark is marketing City Place for sale.

“City Place is a rare and well-timed opportunity for investors to acquire a critical mass of institutional-quality product within one of the nation’s most vibrant and walkable urban centers,” Newmark’s John Alvarado said in a statement.

Newmark’s Alvarado, Gary Carr, Robert Hill and Chris Murphy are handling the sale.

City Place is hitting the market just as another Fort Worth high-rise changes hands.

A New York investor, Opal Holdings, just bought the 40-story Burnett Plaza, downtown Fort Worth’s tallest skyscraper.
