Frisco Station developers ready to start construction on second major office building





Project Location


Missouri-based VanTrust Real Estate is set to begin construction this month on a second major office building at Frisco Station, the 242-acre mixed-use project at the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway.

Called Offices Two at Frisco Station, the 210,000-square-foot building is a speculative venture -- being launched without a major tenant attached -- and is planned for the southwest corner of Cowboys Way and Gridiron Road.

It will be the second of five buildings planned for the office district at the $1.8 billion Frisco Station. Construction costs for the new office building were not released.

Frisco Station is set to have 5 million square feet of office space upon completion and a daytime employment of nearly 15,000 people

Meyer said his firm, which has a regional office in Frisco, anticipates strong demand for both buildings.

"We're pretty confident about ... several deals that we're working on," he said. "And the activity that we've got on building one exceeds the vacancy that we've got."

Construction on the six-story office tower is slated for completion in September 2019.

Frisco Station is one of the first developments in the nation using the technology, and the combination of wireless stealth microcells, ultra-fast internet powered by AT&T Fiber and robust Wi-Fi throughout all common areas, will provide "the ultimate wireless user experience," the company's announcement said.

Offices Two at Frisco Station is adjacent to the Dallas Cowboys' world headquarters at The Star and will be within walking distance of more than 50 retail, restaurant and entertainment options at The Star and The Hub at Frisco Station, the development's planned entertainment district.

Frisco Station also is where one of the world's first Skyports to support Uber Air's flying taxis is planned.

TEXRail overpass bridge nears completion




Project Location


The TEXRail bridge over SH 114/121 is nearing completion after more than a year of construction. The new bridge connects the TEXpress lane rails as they head south from Grapevine into DFW International Airport.

The bridge is 1,580 feet long and held in place by more than 40 columns. It will have one track running across it when it opens, although it has the capacity to carry two.

In the coming months, the roadway beneath the bridge will be restored to its pre-construction status as the lane closures come to an end. 

This fall the bridge will begin to see trains traverse between the airport and Grapevine as the service prepares to begin at the end of the year.

Frisco condo tower in the works on $5 billion mile




Project Location


The developers of the $700 million Gate development on the Dallas North Tollway plan to build a 10-story residential building. The condo tower, on John Hickman Parkway just west of the tollway, will have more than 100 residential units, according to plans filed with the city.

"The Gate will be for-sale condos," said Michael Cox with architect Humphreys & Partners, which is designing the project. The more than 3-acre development site is part of the 40-acre mixed-use Gate project, which was part of Frisco's original $5 billion mile.

The Gate property is owned and has been planned by Dubai-based Invest Group Overseas. The project is planned to include almost 20 buildings ranging in height from about three stories to more than 10 floors.

The development is designed for more than 650,000 square feet of office space, almost 1 million square feet of residential buildings, and more than 130,000 square feet of retail space, plus a luxury hotel.

Two high-rise rental residential buildings are also under construction next door to The Gate in the Frisco Station and the Dallas Cowboys' Star developments.

Atlanta developer Novare Group is building a 25-story residential rental building along the west side of the tollway in Frisco Station.

And a 17-story apartment tower is being built by Columbus Realty Partners and Dallas Cowboys owners the Jones family in the Star development.

Chinese development group to bring mall project to US 380 corridor




Project Location


Frisco City Council approved to rezone 77 acres on Tuesday along US 380 for a multilevel shopping center project with additional retail, office, hotel and urban-living residential units.

The rezoning request was approved with the condition that the developer would begin construction on 100,000 square feet of office space plus the first phase of the mall and retail aspects before receiving a building permit for any residential building.

Lesso America, a subsidiary of building material manufacturer China Lesso Group Holdings Ltd., has owned the land for two years and plans to move its American headquarters to the development.

The development is planned to have three different districts

a frontage district with a mixture of retail, hotel and office;
a lifestyle district that would contain most of the retail with one urban-living tower;
and a southern district that would contain mostly urban-living units as well as some office, hotel and retail space.

Ron Patterson, president of Frisco Economic Development Corp., said the project is valued at about $2 billion, which would bring in a lot of tax revenue.
