Simply put, we are building what we could never find in the industrial market.

We know firsthand the conflict and disruption of having to adapt a business to a space rather than adapt a space to your business.

We have a 40-year track record in development of over 85 properties totaling more than 1,100,000 square feet, covering more than 230 acres in Dallas/Fort Worth and a variety of major markets in the Southern United States. Currently, we are focused in the Dallas/Fort Worth market with 200,000 square feet of industrial space in the planning process.

Our top-quality, above code industrial and flex property development is now occupied by strong and desirable global, national and local credit tenants.

Who We Support

Giving back to the local community





Sandra McGlothlin is known for her 40 year track-record as an entrepreneur of excellence. Beginning in 1982 with the founding of Empire Roofing, Sandra has since founded Empire Disposal and led both multi-million dollar companies from beginning to successful disposition.

Throughout her career, Sandra became frustrated with what she found in the way of commercial space in the market. So, she set out on a mission to change the way commercial industrial spaces are built. Today, Sandra is CEO of Empire Holdings, a commercial real estate development company dedicated to the kind of user-focused design that she could never find in her 40 years as a business owner.

Empire Holdings, LLC has in-depth real estate development experience:

38-year track record
85+ properties
1,100,000+ square feet
230+ acres in Dallas/Fort
Worth and various major markets in the Southern United States, including Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Atlanta, Miami, Memphis, and Tulsa.

After recent property dispositions, the firm has concentrated development efforts in the Dallas/Fort Worth market, providing customized, top quality, above-code industrial and industrial flex property for local, regional and national credit tenants.



With more than fifteen years in commercial construction and real estate development, Bowie Holland has been instrumental in building the Empire Holdings portfolio. 

Since joining Empire Holdings Real Estate in 2011, he has focused on industrial development, leading the team with a customer-centric, common-sense approach.  He focuses on acquisitions, dispositions, and overall management of current projects.  He has recently facilitated dispositions of two large blocks of properties with values exceeding $60MM, as well as the acquisition of multiple industrial land sites for future development and build-to-suit opportunities.  Bowie has worked directly with some of the most demanding national tenant partners in the country including REI, Starbucks, Walmart, Honeywell, Dish Network and Sunbelt Rentals.   

Bowie is responsible for the day-to-day management and development of the $100+ million portfolio with an additional $25+ million of development in-progress. He oversees collaborations with a wide range of consultants, brokers and works directly with city staff on incentives and complex entitlements including zoning changes, platting and phased development.  

Bowie holds a BS in Industrial Distribution and a Business Minor from the College of Engineering at Texas A&M University.  He has deepened his industry knowledge by successfully completing the rigorous requirements of the Certified Commercial Investment Manager (CCIM) designation. He is committed to excellence and actively contributes to the commercial real estate community through his work with the Real Estate Council’s Governmental Affairs and Executive Committees as well as the Mayor’s Development Advisory Committee. He was recognized by the Fort Worth Business Press as a 40 Under 40 Honoree.
