Rosewood Property brings in venture partner for 2.5M-square-foot corporate magnet in Plano

 

oneheritagecreekside300dpi-copy.jpg

 

Project Location

 

Rosewood Property and Patrinely Group unveiled plans Tuesday outlining a 12-story, 343,800-square-foot office tower, called One Heritage Creekside, within Heritage Creekside's new 72-acre mixed-use campus along the President George Bush Turnpike on the west side of Interstate 75.



In all, the mixed-use campus — which is aimed at luring a major corporate tenant — will total more than 2.5 million square feet of Class A office space, retail, luxury urban apartments, hotels and single-family homes.

One Heritage Creekside, which could deliver as early as the fourth quarter of 2019, will be the first of four office buildings in a quad, with an additional fifth tower for a large company's operations, such as Amazon's proposed HQ2.

Even though the office tower could deliver as early as the fourth quarter of 2019, a spokeswoman for the development group said they require a tenant commitment before beginning construction.

Project Location

 

The planned project would include more than 700 rental units in two phases plus ground-floor retail space. The Jefferson East Branch development is in Farmers Branch northwest of the Galleria Dallas shopping mall.

"The site is already zoned for multifamily; we are just modifying the site plan," Brendel said in an email.



Architect JHP designed the 6-story buildings.

JPI is also working on a separate, more than 400-unit apartment project just south of the tollway tract at Inwood and Alpha Road. The rental units would be part of a 13-acre mixed-use development that includes retail, office and a hotel on the former site of a big box store.

DFW Airport to close busiest runway for $160M rebuild project

 

DFW-International-Airport-3.jpg
Business Destinations

 

DFW Airport has received two grants for airfield improvements from the Federal Aviation Administration.



Most of the Airport Improvement Program grants, about $49.5 million, will be used to refurbish Runway 17-Center/35-Center and make associated taxiway improvements. Another $2.6 million will help upgrade lighting for the terminal ramp areas.

The rehabilitation project is scheduled to take place in mid-2018. The runway will be closed for about four months, but DFW’s six additional runways will allow a full schedule of flight operations, airport officials said. Customers should not see significant air traffic delays due to the closure, officials said

The rehabilitation project for Runway 17C/35C includes installation of an updated pavement sensor system for measuring weather impacts.

U.S. Rep. Kenny Marchant, R-Coppell, said the improvements will maintain DFW Airport’s position as “the nation's premier transportation hub.”



"I am honored to represent DFW Airport in Congress and look forward to the seeing the impacts these improvements will have on air-travel, trade and job creation in North Texas,” Marchant said.

The rehabilitation consists of replacement of the center third of the runway, which is about 6,000 feet long, 50 feet wide and reaches a depth of more than three feet. The runway is comprised of 12 inches of lime-treated sub-base, 8 inches of cement-treated base and 18 inches of Portland Cement concrete.

Afterward, the entire runway will be resurfaced with a composite section of Portland Cement concrete and polymer-modified high-performance asphalt, designed for strength, flexibility and weather resistance.

DFW Airport serves more than 65 million customers per year, making it one of the most frequently visited super-hub airports in the world.

Frisco P&Z approves zoning request for housing development with grass rooftops

 

TE-Homes-e1497943397820-1078x465.jpg

 

Project Location

 

Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission approved a request from the owners of the property to rezone 57 acres on the northeast corner of Independence Parkway and Rolater Road from agriculture to single family.

The homes in the proposed development would have a modern, sleek interior while the outside would have customized gardens, including grassy rooftops. According to the developer, these types of homes are popular in other countries, such as India and Dubai.

The developer has also enhanced open space amenities, upgraded the bridge design, reworked the open space and provided a connection of a trail to the cul-de-sacs within the proposed development.

During Tuesday’s meeting, there were several residents present who spoke in favor of the development.



One resident spoke against the project, arguing the proposed developed was too different and was not likely to be successful in Frisco. Some residents said it was that uniqueness that would “place Frisco on the map.”

Updated plans reveal office quad at Heritage Creekside

 

PLN-2017-11-01-04-800x516.jpg

 

Project Location

 

The plans also clear the way for developers to begin construction on the first office tower.



The developers’ vision for the western portion show an active business park anchored by a quadrangle of office buildings that surround an open square of food trucks, restaurants and green space, reminiscent of Dallas’s Klyde Warren Park.

Construction crews are actively building the mix of residential housing, stores and restaurants that will make up the eastern side of the property.

“There’s a significant improvement to the employment center,” Day said to council members in October, comparing the new layout to the developer’s initial plans. “Before, the employment center was very much closed off and not accessible, and it was intended to be a campus-type environment. This really brings people into the employment center, which I think is a major improvement.”



A day after the city approved the new plans, the developers announced construction on the western employment center will soon begin in earnest as crews begin to erect a 12-story office tower at Heritage Creekside. The building, scheduled for completion by the end of 2019, will include 343,800 square feet of Class A office space, according to a statement from the developers.

Developers have increased the number of planned single-family lots to 252, up from 173 in an earlier plan.

“We made a commitment to the adjacent homeowners that we would have single-family adjacent to the neighborhood immediately to the north,” Flaherty said.

The amount of open space in the plan rose to 10.1 acres, up from 7.6 acres in its previous iteration.

Alamo Drafthouse movie theater lands notable, new Texas address: Denton

 

Screen-Shot-2017-12-14-at-10.11.51-AM.pn

DMag

 

Project Location

 

Denton has been on the minds of Alamo Drafthouse execs for years. But the first stop for this dinner-and-a-flick movie house in North Texas was Richardson. Then the Cedars in Dallas. Las Colinas and Lake Highlands are next. Finally, Denton gets its moment: Alamo No. 5 is expected to open in June 2018 in little d, the city where some Alamo high-ups went to college.



The coming-soon Alamo Drafthouse in Denton will be located in Rayzor Ranch, near the intersection of 380 and Interstate 35E.

"Denton has been a market we wanted Alamo Drafthouse to locate for a very long time," says DFW COO Bill DiGaetano in a statement.



The movie theater will be home to a bar and restaurant called Vetted Well.

You may recognize that as the same-named bar with "killer cocktails and Dallas skyline views," our beer editor Tiney Ricciardi reported, at the Alamo Drafthouse in the Cedars. At Vetted Well in Denton, it'll pour something like 30 local beers, according to a statement.

Lakeside Professional Office, a Class-A office building in Flower Mound, breaks ground in December

 

Lakeside-Office-Bldg-2a.jpg

 

Project Location

 

A Class-A office building, the Lakeside Professional Office, will break ground in Lakeside DFW this month at the southeast corner of FM 2499 and Lakeside Parkway in Flower Mound.



The two-story, 21,750-square foot building is expected to be complete in the summer, according to Jimmy Archie, managing partner of Realty Capital Management, developer of the project.

Archie said the office building’s proximity to DFW Airport and major thoroughfares, such as FM 2499, state highways 121 and 114, and Interstate 635 will help draw people in.



“The location will give Flower Mound executives a way to cut their commutes while offering their employees a centralized DFW location,” Archie said.

Plans advance for 4-story hotel near downtown Plano

 

IMG_6851-1078x516.jpg

 

Project Location

 

The plot is across the President George Bush Turnpike from the city of Richardson’s massive CityLine development, which is home to State Farm and Raytheon corporate offices.



The approved amendment allows an increase of the maximum allowable height of the hotel from two stories to four stories.

Plans for DART’s future Cotton Belt Line, which will link downtown Plano to the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport when completed, could have the potential to revitalize downtown Plano, Day said in a previous interview with Community Impact Newspaper.



“[The Cotton Belt] is basically a really unique opportunity to expand our downtown core to the south and … continue what we hope is a synergy between downtown Plano and CityLine station—revitalizing that southern K Avenue corridor in Plano,” Day said.

The Cotton Belt Line is projected to begin operation in 2022.

The approved site plans for the hotel will remain pending until Plano City Council decides whether to accept the zoning amendments approved by the planning and zoning commission.

Flower Mound Town Council approves mixed-use development The Point

 

Screen-Shot-2017-12-18-at-2.30.54-PM-107

Project Location

 

With a 3-2 vote, Flower Mound Town Council approved the rezoning of 35 acres of land located at FM 2499 and Silveron Parkway within the Lakeside Business District Area giving the green light for The Point, a mixed-use development.

The development will feature multifamily units by developer Trammell Crow Residential. The apartments will be built in two phases. The first phase will contain 301 multifamily units and 32 carriage homes, which were also referred to as townhomes. The multifamily units will range in price from $1,200/$1,400 to $2,000 a month.



Phase 1 will also include a Hilton branded hotel, Tru. Developers are also required to have a minimum of 57,500 square feet of commercial space under construction in Phase 1.

Phase 2 will include the rest of the development’s residential units but only once the commercial space is finished in Phase 1.

The applicant, Direct Development, said two Class A office buildings will likely be built in Phase 2.

The developer said the reason why Flower Mound has not been able to attract Class A office buildings is because there is no where for the workers to live. Therefore, the multifamily must be built first.

Boeing doubles its new Plano operation, makes room for 200 more workers

 

Boeing_Legacy_West_Plano_Magazine.jpg

PlanoMagazine

 

Less than a year after announcing the move, Boeing is doubling the size of its office in Plano's Legacy West development.



The Chicago-based aerospace firm has rented another large block of offices at the northwest corner of Legacy Drive and the Dallas North Tollway.

In April 2017, Boeing announced it was moving the headquarters for its new global services division to the $3 billion Legacy West project, joining Toyota, Liberty Mutual Insurance, JPMorgan Chase and FedEx Office.

"Yes, Boeing is expanding its footprint in Legacy West," said spokeswoman Lisa Maull. "We will add another 35,000 square feet to accommodate global services as well as growth in some other capability areas within Boeing.



"This added capacity will allow for more than 200 employees at this location."

Boeing's Plano office is located above the shopping and retail buildings along Windrose Avenue.

Boeing said it chose to locate its new division here because of the geographic location and access to a large, talented labor pool.

Sources: Frisco to develop park bigger than Dallas' Fair Park

 

Screen%20Shot%202018-01-10%20at%208.01.4
WFAA

 

Project Location

 

The city of Frisco has roughly 300 acres of prime developable land alongside Panther Creek on Brinkmann Ranch under contract, with plans to build a city park with sports fields that, if developed, would be bigger than Dallas' Fair Park.



Officials with the city are expected to close on a tract at the northwest corner of Eldorado Parkway and Preston Road on Feb. 5, multiple sources say.

By luring the Dallas Cowboys' world headquarters and practice facility and recently landing a Major League Lacrosse team, sources say Frisco is branding itself a premier city in North Texas to raise a young athlete.

Mayor Jeff Cheney declined to comment on the would-be deal, but said parks are an important part of Frisco's future.



"I've always said I want Frisco to have the best park system in the entire country," Cheney told the Dallas Business Journal.

The Brinkmann Ranch tract is owned by North Texas businessman Baxter Brinkmann.

As North Texas continues to add rooftops and residents to its ranks, parks have become an important part of communities' development strategies. In Dallas, city leaders are working to develop and program four parks within the central business district for residents.

Habitat for Humanity to convert shipping containers into homes for affordable housing in McKinney

 

1515619594-cottongrove1.png?auto=format%

 

Project Location

 

For now, it's just a sliver of land and an old abandoned house at the corner of Bumpas and Fitzhugh streets on McKinney's east side. 



But if all goes according to plan, town homes built from shipping containers will begin rising up within a year on the site.

Named The Cotton Groves, the community is a new stock of affordable housing planned for the northern Collin County suburb. 

North Collin County Habitat for Humanity purchased the nearly three-acre plot on the city's east side in November.  Last month, McKinney City Council members unanimously approved plans for the 35-unit neighborhood development.

 

1515619879-CottonGrovesMap.jpg?auto=form

 

Each home will be made of four shipping containers to make-up a 1,280-square-foot home. The homes will feature three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a second-floor balcony and covered carport. 



Habitat plans to sell the homes to people at 30 percent of their gross monthly income

Qualified applicants must have lived or worked in north Collin County for one year, currently be living in substandard housing and willing to contribute sweat equity to help build their home and others. 

"The ultimate goal was to serve more families," said Celeste H. Cox, CEO of the North Collin County Habitat for Humanity.

Cabot bought about 10 acres in the Park 25 development from the Frisco Economic Development Corp. and plans to have the building ready by midyear.

In 2016, Frisco started the $300 million, 2.2 million-square-foot business park south of U.S. Highway 380 on Preston Road to accommodate about a dozen office, showroom and industrial buildings of various sizes.



Information technology firm Skinny IT has announced it will build a 130,000-square-foot facility on 9 acres in Park 25. Skinny IT will house about 150 employees there starting in 2019.

New high-rise office and hotel project on the way in Plano's Legacy development

 

1517249418-headquartersII.jpg?auto=forma

 

Project Location

 

The planned development at the northeast corner of Headquarters Drive and the Dallas North Tollway will include two office towers and a luxury hotel.



Construction on the high-rise project, called Headquarters II, is scheduled to start later this year, according to developer Randy Heady.

Twin 14-story office towers will contain 425,000 square feet of space located just across the tollway from Liberty Mutual Insurance's huge office tower complex.

"It will take 14 to 15 months to build," Heady said. "We already have 10 to 12 prospects for the first building."



The office towers will be connected with a parking garage that includes an "amenity deck" on the roof with lounge, food service and meeting space. The first phase of the more than 5-acre project will be built on the north side of Headquarters Drive with the hotel next door on the corner of the tollway.

Heady said he's in talks with several hotel firms to build and operate the project.

"They all want to be close to Toyota," whose new North American headquarters is farther west on Headquarters Drive, Heady said.

"We focused our attention on the tollroad view of the building," said O'Brien vice president Mick Granlund. "We used different patterning with the glass to create interest in the building,"[sic]

Plans filed with Irving's zoning commission say the development will include a hotel, retail space and apartments on the vacant corner.

Lincoln will build 288 apartments in the Las Colinas development on Meridian Drive east of Highway 161, according to the plans.

The hotel and retail site is to the north along High Point Drive. A community park is planned at the center of the development. Dallas architect GFF did the site design.

"There is not a timetable on when we will start construction," Hickman said. "We have a lot of interested people and are trying to finish up the site plan with the city."

1,000-home community valued at $300 million coming to Forney

 

1517953783-overland.jpg?auto=format&q=50

 

Project Location

 

Long-time Dallas developer Wynne/Jackson plans to build the new Oakland Grove community in Forney on 336 acres on FM 548 between Interstate 20 and U.S. Highway 80.



The $300 million project will have homes priced between $275,000 and $400,000.

"Our objective is to deliver a very high quality, highly amenitized master planned community like you would find in the northern submarkets, but with excellent proximity to the largest employment base in D-FW and with quality homes that are much more affordable than what you would find in the northern communities," said Wynne/Jackson principal Michael Jackson.

Along with home sites, the development will have open space, miles of pedestrian trails, a site for an elementary school, a community garden area and a resort-style amenity center.

The first building sites will be ready in March of 2019.



Builders Taylor Morrison and CalAtlantic Homes have contracted to purchase all of the first-phase 327 home sites.
