ViaWest to develop new Telecom Corridor data center as part of growth strategy

Candace Carlisle
December 18, 2015

Denver-based ViaWest has begun construction on a new Plano data center — its seventh data center in Dallas-Fort Worth — as part of the company's larger growth strategy.
"Dallas continues to be one of the hottest markets in the United States as it relates to data center demand," Myers told me.
The increased demand for data centers in Dallas-Fort Worth is tied to the growing corporate base in the region with data center companies seeking to locate near their clients. And ViaWest could build additional facilities in North Texas in the future, Myers said.

Within two years more than 13,000 people will be working in the Legacy West project – making it one of the largest new job centers in the state.

950-home community planned for fabled Clements Ranch east of Dallas

Steve Brown
January 6, 2016
 

Developers have filed plans with the City of Dallas to build a 950-home residential community on almost 260 acres that for decades was owned by the family of the late Texas Governor William Clements.

 

The property located north of U.S. Highway 80 is on the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard.

“The grand opening we will time to be in February or March of 2017,” he said. 

 

The planned residential neighborhoods would be built with a series of parks and public areas.

Wow! If only they were looking at Downtown Dallas and not Plano. Still really cool projects. We share the same heartbreak with the Exxon Campus...

What happened to Dallas?  Everything is being built in Plano.  The 10 tallest skyscrapers in Texas under construction are in Houston and Austin.  Dallas has one.

I dunno. I don't control the money. All I know is that there's a crap load of short towers going up.. If I controlled the money I would have taken the money for 5 of those shorties and built something big. There are still proposals though. One may surprise us someday. Even without a skyscraper the uptown skyline IS changing and that's exciting.

 

The core is starting to take a Boston or Seattle type look to it and I like it.

The Dallas core is doing better than ever though. I think Houstonians need to stop thinking that taller always means better. Uptown Dallas is slowly creeping far far north and the development is spilling over into east and west Dallas.

I'm young but in my short life time I noticed how Dallas is so different than what it was when I was growing up in east Dallas. There used to be shootouts and bums all over old east Dallas but now you have developments attracting the similar type of people that uptown does. And they usually don't make it into these forums so it's been a quiet transformation.

This type of transformation is happening all over the country, hardly a Dallas or Houston thing. Definitely not a Detroit thing... But you catch my drift.

A first look at JP Morgan Chase's new regional campus at Plano's Legacy West

Candace Carlisle
January 8, 2016
 
 

With Toyota North America's $350 million, 2.1 million-square-foot corporate campus underway and Liberty Mutual Insurance readying its $325 million, 1 million-square-foot regional hub for vertical construction, it would appear J.P. Morgan Chase & Co.'s new regional hub could pencil out to more than $200 million of real and business personal property.

The 800,000 square feet of office space is expected to be spread out throughout a number of buildings. In an early rendering of the campus, J.P. Morgan Chase appears to have four mid-rise office buildings (attached).

Construction on the campus is slated to begin this year. The first J.P. Morgan Chase employees could move into the new campus starting in the second half of 2017.

I never said they promised anything. Only that people (on City-Data, among other forums) were holding out hopes that JP Morgan would build some massive downtown complex. Sadly they took the Exxon route..

Also something is happening next to the 18 story Craig Hall arts center. I do believe they have begun the staging for the 45story. I noticed it a few weeks ago.

I personally dont believe all of the "big boys" listed here are going to go up.....but just imagine seeing all those cranes up at the same time if they did. 1984 all over again. It wouldn't look like the same city.

Man you people are ruthless. :lol:

Anyways, I just copied and pasted that list from wherever and didn't focus on the details. I, actually never heard of JP Morgan doing anything so it wasn't a topic I'd discussed.

Besides that list I never saw it mentioned on SSC.

The JP Morgan development in Downtown Dallas across from the Trammel Crow Center is a totally different project than the JP Morgan Chase campus going in Plano  :

 

http://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/blog/morning_call/2015/08/jp-morgans-mixed-use-development-adjacent-to.html

 

The Downtown Dallas JPMorgan development announcement contained so many apartments, condos, and parking that when initially announced it was speculated at the time the tower could reach 40 or more stories tall.  The 40-60 story estimate was made by me based on the information available at the time of the announcement which includes more than 350 apartments, a 227 room hotel, more than 30,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space, and more than 2,000 parking spaces. 

 

If all of that were included in one building it would easily be more than 50 stories tall.

 

Since the initial project announcement on 08-12-15, more details for the development along with renderings were released on 10-28-15.  The Downtown Dallas JPMorgan development will be twin 26 story towers instead of one very tall tower:

 

http://bizbeatblog.dallasnews.com/2015/10/first-look-at-new-downtown-dallas-tower-project.html/

 

The Downtown Dallas JPMorgan development is a totally different project than the Plano campus development.  The first portions in the Downtown Dallas development are scheduled to open the second half of 2017.

 

I updated my list of new towers in Downtown Dallas to reflect the twin 26 story towers: http://forum.skyscraperpage.com/showpost.php?p=7143152&postcount=42

Well that's not a total disappointment then.. Though all the planned skyscrapers are dwindling away into high rises.. :/

Still very confusing. No idea why that project is referred to as "JP Morgan Chase" when their offices are being built in Plano..

Still very confusing. No idea why that project is referred to as "JP Morgan Chase" when their offices are being built in Plano..

 

There was no dwindling of the Downtown Dallas Chase project.  The 40-60 story placeholder was an estimate by me based on the very substantial number of apartments, hotel rooms, retail space, and parking that makes up the project.  The initial project announcement was in August 2015 with released renderings in October 2015 where the actual construction plan for twin towers was announced.  My early guess based on the substantial scale and scope with the August announcement, if contained in one tower, was just that.

 

Concerning why Chase is building two very substantial projects simultaneously in Downtown Dallas and its suburb of Plano is because Chase has around 12,000 employees in Dallas and its immediate suburbs.  6,000 of those, primarily from offices scattered in various suburban locations, are planned to be relocated to the new one million square foot Chase campus to be built in Plano.  

 

The Chase project for Downtown Dallas is not an office project but instead mixed use with hotel, apartments, retail, restaurant, and parking.  

 

Chase will continue to occupy its space in the JPMorgan Chase Tower in Downtown Dallas and The Crescent.  Chase's Downtown Dallas presence is not a part of the Plano move or will only be negligibly affected.  

 

A quote from Chase:

 

"Chase officials say its several hundred workers in the downtown Chase Tower won’t be significantly impacted by the office moves to Plano from several suburban locations."

 

Hope that helps clear up any confusion.

Green Brick Partners Inc. said Monday that it has purchased almost 100 acres for the project along Eldorado Parkway between the Dallas North Tollway and Preston Road.

 

The development called Frisco Springs will include both townhouse and single-family homes.

The homes in Frisco Springs will be built around 20 acres of open space and trails. There will also be a community center with a pool, work out room and entertaining areas.
