Goviea Commercial Real Estate is building the more than 25-acre development between Stonebrook Parkway and the Dallas North Tollway.

Four office buildings, a hotel and a handful of restaurant and retail buildings are planned in Stonebrook Park. The development will be just north of the $1.6 billion Wade Park project.

Quote:
The three-story, 90,000-square-foot office building is at the south end of the development site.

Three more office projects that will add up to about 480,000 square feet are planned.

A row of freestanding retail and restaurant buildings will line the tollway service road on the west side.
Quote:
“We are under contract for two different hotels,” Heady said. “We are talking to a couple of restaurants that would cater to the office tenants.

Irving's Pioneer project update:

Pioneer Natural Resources gets $6 million in economic incentives for new Irving headquarters campus
Steve Brown
May 12, 2016



Quote:
Irving’s city council voted Thursday night to provide almost $6 million in economic incentives for a new office headquarters for Pioneer Natural Resources.
Quote:
Pioneer Natural Resources – an energy firm already based in Irving – would move almost 1,100 people to the planned 750,000 square-foot office development on Hidden Ridge Drive.
Quote:
“It’s an opportunity to retain a major employer with a very highly paid workforce,” Scott Connell, director of Irving’s Economic Development department, told the council. “A critical issue for us is it secures a major anchor for the Hidden Ridge development.”
Quote:
Located on 110 acres adjacent to communication firm Verizon’s long-time Irving regional office, the Hidden Ridge development will be constructed adjacent to a new DART commuter rail station.

The ambitious mixed-use project is planned to include more than 2 million square feet of office space, apartments, retail, restaurants and a hotel.

Pioneer Natural Resources new headquarters would be in the blue buildings just west of the planned Hidden Ridge town center and DART rail station. (Gensler)

Quote:
Verizon has told Irving that the development could eventually be worth more than $1 billion and house up to 10,000 workers.

Pioneer’s planned office would sit on 38 acres in the center of the Hidden Ridge development, adjacent to residential and retail center and the new transit station.

“We are very excited about retaining a major employer in our community,” Connell said. “The company is still considering opportunities in other Metroplex cities.
Quote:
To land the Pioneer project, Irving agreed to give the company more than more than $5 million in property tax abatements over a 10-year period. The city council also voted to give Pioneer cash economic grants of more than $700,000 to be paid in installments over a period of several years.

To qualify for the initial economic incentives Pioneer will have to have its new Hidden Ridge offices open by 2020 and 1,090 people working there. The company has said it expects to grow its workforce by more than 300 people after the project is finished.
Quote:
Irving’s agreement also requires Hidden Ridge to build a large portion of its apartments in a high-rise building of at least seven floors.
Quote:
Construction on the Hidden Ridge project could begin as soon as late this year. Architect Gensler has been working on master plans for the transit-oriented development.

I heard a year or so ago that Park Place's Land Rover dealership would sit just east of the Mercedes-Benz dealership, across Texan Trail. Nonetheless, I'm excited this was finally announced.

Land Rover, Land Rover, let Park Place come over: Jaguar store exiting Plano to merge
Terry Box
May 16, 2016

Quote:
Park Place Dealerships, already one of the largest luxury-car groups in the U.S., will move its Jaguar dealership from Plano and combine it with Land Rover at a new store in Grapevine.

Construction is scheduled to begin immediately on the facility, which will be located on the south side of State Highway 114 near Texan Trail Parkway.

The two luxury brands – both owned by Tata Motors, the largest auto manufacturer in India – will occupy a two-story dealership with 30 service bays and a showroom that can accommodate up to 12 Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.

It is expected to open next spring.

Arlington, Rangers expected to unveil plans for new stadium with roof
Ted Madden and Gordon Dickson, Star-Telegram , WFAA
May 19, 2016

Quote:
Sources with the city say there will be a press conference at 1:30 p.m. Friday to make an “important economic development announcement.” Speculation is that the city and Texas Rangers have agreed on plans to build a stadium with a roof that would be funded in part by a half-cent sales tax once AT&T Stadium, home to the Dallas Cowboys, is paid off.
The ballpark would cost approximately $900 million and be split equally between the city and the Rangers.
Quote:
For many fans, the ballpark still feels new, although it is now the 11th oldest facility in Major League Baseball. Eighteen other clubs now play in newer stadiums, including six parks with retractable roofs and one with a fixed dome. Cleveland’s Progressive Field opened the same year as Globe Life Park, which was originally known as The Ballpark in Arlington.
The lack of a roof and accompanying air conditioning is considered one factor that can keep fans away from Globe Life Park, especially during the dog days of summer, when the temperature can stay in the mid-90s even during night games.

More information on TD Ameritrade's new Southlake regional office campus, a story I broke February 25.

Refer to my post no. 26.

First look at TD Ameritrade’s new Southlake business campus
Steve Brown
May 31, 2016



Quote:
The Omaha-based company is building a 355,000-square-foot complex on State Highway 114 next to the Solana business park. The two-building campus is next door to the corporate headquarters of travel services firm Sabre.
Quote:
Designed by architect Good Fulton & Farrell, the two- and three-story buildings are joined by a 2,000-car parking garage.
Quote:
Construction will begin in a few weeks; the campus is set to open late next year.


Quote:
More than 1,000 TD Ameritrade workers now in two buildings in North Fort Worth will be moved to the new Southlake campus when it’s finished. The campus will eventually be able to house as many as 2,000 workers.

TD Ameritrade’s project is one of two big corporate campuses on the way along State Highway 114.

Charles Schwab is planning a 186,000-square-foot office building on the Perot family’s Circle-T Ranch in Westlake.

Westlake planning officials say that developer Hillwood has not yet presented plans for the project that’s part of a larger mixed-use development. Schwab has already rented temporary office space in the area.

Construction kicks off on Chase’s more than $300 million Legacy West campus
Steve Brown
May 24, 2016



Quote:
Construction has quietly begun on the next huge development in Plano’s $3 billion Legacy West development, JPMorgan Chase & Co.’s 50-acre campus on the south side of State Highway 121.

Site work has started on the 1.4 million-square-foot office campus, which will house almost 6,000 workers for the banking and financial services firm when it opens next year.
Quote:
“Everything is on schedule,” said Chase spokesman Greg Hassell. “We aren’t planning a big groundbreaking event.”

The first phase of Chase’s project will include three office buildings and two parking garages, said KDC president Toby Grove.

“People will be in the first building in the fall of 2017,” Grove said. “It’s a tough scheduled but doable.”
Quote:
With the Chase work starting, Legacy West now has more office space being built in one place than anyplace in the Southwest — more than 4 million square feet.

The start of the project is a “great milestone,” said Legacy West developer Fehmi Karahan. “By the end of 2017 you will see a totally different skyline.”

Along with Chase, Liberty Mutual is building almost 1 million square feet in two towers on the west side of the tollway at Headquarters Drive.
Quote:
And developer Gaedeke Group is building an almost 327,000 square-foot office building — One Legacy West — just west of the Chase campus.

Within two years, more than 15,000 people will be working in the Legacy West project, making it one of the largest new job centers in the state.

Transit-oriented apartment project to be built in downtown Carrollton
Steve Brown
June 3, 2016



Quote:
Now Stoneleigh has tied up a building site next to downtown Carrollton’s DART commuter rail station for another apartment development.

“It’s going to be 230 apartments right at the corner of Belt Line and Interstate 35,” Stoneleigh CEO Rick Cavenaugh said. “It’s a no-brainer – you step out the front door and you walk right next door to the DART station.”

The 4-acre site is vacant and controlled by Realty Capital of Arlington. Cavenaugh said Stoneleigh has formed a partnership with the owner to build a 4-story rental community on the land.

“We are going to try and start construction by the first of the year,” he said.
Quote:
Stoneleigh’s project will be the second urban-style apartment community developed adjacent to the downtown Carrollton DART stop.
Quote:
“We are going to break ground in July on the first 380 units,” Cavenaugh said.

Toyota North America's Plano campus will house Texas' largest corporate on-site solar system
Candace Carlisle
June 6, 2016



Quote:
Toyota North America's new Plano corporate campus — which will cost upwards of $1 billion to develop and relocate its employees to North Texas— is planned to have Texas' largest corporate office on-site solar system, which, upon completion, is expected to provide about 25 percent of the power needed for the campus.
Quote:
The multi-phase solar installation project will start with two parking garages on the campus, with the installation of enough solar panels to generate roughly 2.45 megawatts per garage. The solar panels are expected to come online by August 2017.

The final installation will be located on the third parking garage, which will generate roughly 2.83 megawatts and is slated for completion in December 2017.
Quote:
In all, the Plano solar system is expected to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 7112 metric tons, or the equivalent of the electricity used in nearly 1,000 homes a year. The system is expected to position Toyota as the leader among U.S. auto companies for installed solar power.
