Big Sky Medical Expands DFW Footprint
The property is being rebranded as a medical office building.
Big Sky Medical has acquired Richardson Medical Center I, a 118,472-square-foot medical office building in Richardson, Texas, from Pillar Commercial. Bank of America provided the acquisition loan, according to Collin County records. Newmark represented the seller.
The property previously traded in 2019 as part of a portfolio transaction that also included the 120,000-square-foot Richardson Office Center II, CommercialEdge data shows. Pillar Commercial bought the duo from Buchanan Street Partners with healthcare conversion in mind for both assets. That same year, Methodist Richardson Medical Center purchased RMC II to accommodate the expansion of the hospital’s campus.

Originally completed in 1998, the two-story RMC I underwent cosmetic renovations in 2017. The property features 60,000-square-foot floorplates, a passenger elevator, controlled access and offers 720 car parking spots at a ratio of six spaces per 1,000 square feet. Its repurposing into a medical office building began earlier this year.
Located at 3101 E. President George Bush Highway, the property is some 20 miles Northeast of downtown Dallas. Medical providers in the surrounding area include the 334-bed Methodist Richardson Medical Center, Breckenridge Medical Plaza, Nova Medical Centers and Texas Health Neighborhood Wellness Cityline.
The Newmark team representing the seller included Vice Chairmen Chris Murphy, Robert Hill and Gary Carr, Senior Managing Director John Nero and Executive Managing Director Ben Appel, alongside Senior Managing Directors Jay Miele and Michael Greeley.
