By DBJ Staff, Dallas Business Journal, August 10, 2022

Fort Worth-based M2G Ventures announced this week its plans to renovate The Archetype, a six-building industrial park located between Dallas’ Design District and Love Field Airport.

According to a news release, The Archetype’s project renovations plan to modernize the space, housing various site improvements to attract diverse tenants with lease availability from 2,500 to 25,000 square feet.

“There’s immense opportunity for this project, so we wanted the project identity and name to capture our innovative redevelopment approach. The Archetype’s rebranding reflects its unique personality and instills a sense of connection between tenants while creating differentiation in the market. Energizing and enhancing The Archetype’s design creates an atmosphere for discerning brands to thrive in this highly sought after urban industrial location.”

Formally Commonwealth Center, the redevelopment will include major capital improvements, storefront upgrades, environmental graphics, enhanced landscaping and hardscaping, lighting upgrades and public art installations.

Tenants and the surrounding community will see art throughout the property with murals installed by Dallas artist Josh Dodson and curation by M2G Ventures’ chief creative, Katie Murray

“We want to create the ideal space for thriving tenants. We feel we are doing that with the art infusions, new landscaping, added wayfinding and signage, along with the improved storefront and exterior lighting upgrades. Add in its ideal location and easy access to DFW’s most affluent and densely populated areas, and we believe we are truly creating a place users want to be.”

M2G Ventures continues to grow its portfolio with projects like North Quarter 35 in north Fort Worth and PROTO Park in Dallas under its belt. In 2021, the real estate investment and development company swung it out of the ballpark with over $1 billion in development in planning phases throughout North Texas.
