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.

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.

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.

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.

View rendering here
 

 

The city of Wilmer just approved plans for the development called Liberty Crossing. “We see a lot of growth going on in that area but there aren’t many housing options,” said developer Richard Ashton. “We want to bring in sustainable workforce housing.
Apartments would be constructed behind the retail. “We are planning at each 144 to 160 multifamily units and we are working with retail partners to develop the retail and commercial portion,” Ashton said. “We are also looking at 68 rental townhomes and 90 single-family houses.”
Employment in the area in Wilmer and neighboring Hutchins has dramatically increased in the last few years with new warehousing facilities for companies including Procter & Gamble, Whirlpool, Unilever, Sprouts grocery, Ace Hardware, Arch Chemical and Medline Medical.

Construction has begun on the initial phase of single-family residential homes in Forney's long-awaited Gateway Parks, a $1 billion, 2,000-acre master-planned community that will bring 1,850 home lots to the North Texas suburb.

"We will have 440 home lots in the first phase and hope to have them done by August of this year," said Bain, who added that he hasn't partnered with any homebuilders yet on the home lots.

Other plans for the master-planned community include apartments, retail centers, entertainment destinations, office buildings, a hotel, medical facilities, distribution hubs and senior living facilities.

$120 million expansion planned for Grapevine’s Gaylord Texan

Karen Robinson-Jacobs
January 20, 2016
 

Nashville-based Ryman Hospitality Properties Inc., which operates as a lodging real estate investment trust, said the project at the Gaylord Texan Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine will add 300 guest rooms to the resort’s current 1,511 room count. 

 

That would put it just below the 1,840 room count at The Sheraton Dallas Hotel downtown, the state's largest hotel in terms of guest rooms.

The current project will add 86,000 square feet of carpeted meeting space, bringing the total meeting space to about 490,000 square feet.

Construction is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of this year and be completed during the second quarter of 2018. The $120 million figure includes a $5 million expansion of the property’s resort pool complex, which is expected to be complete for the 2016 summer season.

Dallas-based data center provider Stream Data Centers has snapped up 16 acres of land to develop a new data center development within Legacy Business Park in Plano.

 

The developer plans to build a 210,000-square-foot data center that will have the ability to withstand sustained 185-mph winds. Stream is seeking LEED Silver certification for the project.

Dallas-Fort Worth is the No. 2 data center market in the country based on the megawatt absorption in 2015, according to JLL's latest Data Center Perspective.

 

JLL'S Bo Bond told me he expects to see a lot of data center development this year.

Stream Data Centers plans to begin construction on the site in the second quarter of 2016, with occupancy slated for early 2017.

More precisely, the "Chase" project downtown is just an investment by JP Morgan Assert Management,, a different part of the JP Morgan Chase empire. It has nothing at all to do with the JPMorgan Chase employee base downtown.

Large datacenter planned for Richardson one of several in the works for North Texas

datamap.jpg
 
The more than 470,000-square-foot 3-story datacenter would be built on more than 20 acres at the northwest corner of Security Row and International Parkway.
North Texas was the second fastest growing datacenter market in the country in 2015, behind only suburban Washington, D.C., according to a new report by commercial property firm JLL.
 
“We are continuing to have record absorption here,” said JLL’s Bo Bond. “Those numbers do not include corporate build-to-suit projects like Facebook and State Farm.”
Bond said the next generation of projects will be bigger and will include more ground-up construction, rather than converting old commercial buildings.

Granite Properties' 'The Boardwalk' restaurant row gets underway in West Plano

February 9, 2016

On the heels of landing Fannie Mae's regional consolidation at Granite Park, Granite Properties has started construction on its boardwalk-inspired restaurant row at the southeast corner of the Sam Rayburn Tollway and the Dallas North Tollway in West Plano.

The project, called The Boardwalk, is expected to bring about 29,000 square feet of restaurant space in a multi-building complex attached with patios and a boardwalk around the lake feature at Granite Park.

Last year, Granite Properties landed celebrity chef Kent Rathbun's new concept Hickory Kitchen and a Japanese and Asian-infused concept Blue Fish.

Fuller said it would be a variety of restaurants that would enhance the eateries at the park. Each restaurant will have 3,000 square feet to 7,000 square feet of retail space upon completion.

At full build-out, Granite Park is expected to have a daytime population of 10,000 people. Construction on The Boardwalk is slated for completion in October.

Five years after Super Bowl XLV in Arlington, there’s no sign of a return engagement

http://thescoopblog.dallasnews.com/2016/02/super-bowl-xlv-a-mixed-legacy-for-dallas-area-five-years-later.html/

Super Bowl XLV was a multi-year effort that raised millions for charity and created lasting programs. It also generated plenty of embarrassments when it left some fans without seats, treacherous snow fell from the stadium injuring workers and miserable weather shut down outdoor activities for much of the week. And it’ll be at least a decade before there’s any chance of the NFL returning its biggest game to the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium.

 

The worst Super Bowl ever.  Nasty stadium they can open the roof and based in Arlington.  HTown will be ready next year!
