The plan is to first add 1,300 new parking spaces on the new land north of the property before it starts construction of new stores in the interior of the center.

About 122,000 additional square feet of retail space will be built in the middle of the center next to the existing Neiman Marcus Last Call.

Allen Premium Outlets is 100 percent leased and doing very well, De Vita said without disclosing sales figures.
Quote:
With the additional news space the center will be 565,000 square feet making it big enough to rank among last year’s top 20 centers, according to an annual list published by Value Retail News.

The shopping center’s customers are not only local, said Kerri Bear, regional vice president of marketing, Simon Premium Outlets. “We have shoppers from Arkansas, Oklahoma and Louisiana as well as a large following from Mexico, Brazil and China.”

California manufacturer relocating expanding operations to DFW; eyeing HQ move
Candace Carlisle
June 14, 2016



Quote:
A California-based orthopedic goods manufacturer and distributor has decided to move its Ohio-based distribution hub to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, which will give the company a place to significantly expand operations and possibly relocate its West Coast headquarters.

The company, Santa Paula, California-based Hely & Weber, has signed a lease totaling nearly 40,000 square feet of space at 755 Regent Blvd. in Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.

The company plans to move into the new facility, which nearly triples its previous footprint, this fall.
Quote:
"Increasing the size of the Ohio facility was not the most business reasonable option because we wanted to give more of our customers three-day shipping, so we decided to put our new distribution center in Dallas, where 70 percent of our customers will have access to three-day shipping," he added.
Quote:
Along with making the new Dallas-Fort Worth the primary distribution center, Hely said the company plans to move its research and development team to North Texas.

As part of the expansion in the region, Hely & Weber is considering relocating its California headquarters to North Texas, said Hely, who recently moved to the Uptown neighborhood in Dallas to be closer to the company's new primary distribution center.

Steve Brown
June 20, 2016



Quote:
Partners T5 DataCenters and Lincoln Rackhouse — the data center subsidiary of the Dallas-based real estate developer Lincoln Property — are ready to build their second project in Plano’s booming Legacy business park.

The almost 150,000-square-foot project will be constructed on part of a 9-acre site east of the Dallas North Tollway on Pinecrest Drive that T5 and Lincoln bought from Southern Methodist University.
Quote:
“We’ve had a lot of success with our initial project there – one of the largest data centers in North Texas,” said T5 president Pete Marin.
Quote:
Marin said construction will start on the next project in Plano in August.
Quote:
“We will deliver the building in February and it will be fully commissioned in May of next year.”

T5 and Lincoln’s project will be one of several new data centers in the works in Collin County.

“Dallas is fast becoming the No. 2 data center market in the country,” Marin said.
Quote:
Martin Peck with Lincoln Rackhouse said with so much business growth in North Texas, demand for data center space shows no sign of abating.

“Dallas is so well-positioned from a business climate — companies want to do business here,” Peck said.

4-hotel complex in the works in $1 billion Frisco Station project
Steve Brown
June 28, 2016



Quote:
A new Frisco development has landed what developers are calling a "hotel campus" with four different brands and 600 rooms.

The planned hotel complex will be part of the $1 billion Frisco Station project at the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway.

The 242-acre mixed-use development wraps around the Dallas Cowboys' new Star headquarters complex.
Quote:
The hotel campus will be the first phase of a mixed-use retail, office and entertainment center Frisco Station is calling The Hub.

"It not only energizes our whole mixed-use program but it also plays very well off what is happening next door at the Star," said Hillwood Properties president Mike Berry.

"This project at Frisco Station will deliver a wide variety of new hotel rooms."
Quote:
The planned hotel complex will include a Marriott AC Hotel and Residence Inn, and a Canopy Hotel by Hilton and Hyatt Place Hotels.
Quote:
Construction will start on three hotels -- the AC, Residence and Canopy -- in January. A groundbreaking for the Hyatt Place will be later.
Quote:
"It's starting to look like a true urban zone," he said. "I haven't seen a landscape transformed like that in a long time."

Along with more than 2 million square feet of office buildings, plans for Frisco Station include more than 2,000 apartments and homes, shops, restaurants and medical buildings.

Wylie donates land for Collin College campus to be built in 2020
Nanette Light
June 30, 2016



Quote:
Once a small farming community known as the onion capital of the world, the city of Wylie soon will be a college town.

For the last decade, city leaders have worked to persuade Collin College officials to open a campus in the booming suburb east of Plano.
Quote:
The college plans to build its eighth campus on roughly 43 acres donated by the city. The Wylie City Council formally approved the donation Tuesday night. In 2015, the Collin County Appraisal District valued the property at more than $1.4 million.
Quote:
College leaders plan to break ground in three years. Scheduled to open in 2020 north of Wylie High School and across the street from the city's municipal complex on Country Club Road, the three-building, 360,000-square-foot campus will be large enough to serve 7,500 students.
Quote:
The Wylie campus is the college's fourth major location and will offer core courses, along with specialty classes yet to be determined.
Quote:
Collin County's population of roughly more than 914,000 is estimated to more than double by 2040. The growth means a larger demand for higher education, Hogue said.

"For the college, we're trying to make sure we're prepared to serve a large population," district president Neil Matkin said.

The Wylie location will relieve overcrowding at the college's Spring Creek Campus in Plano. There, about 25 percent of students live in Wylie and Sachse. Matkin estimates those students, along with others in Rockwall, will enroll at the Wylie location.

Zoning request for new apartments approved by Allen City Council
Garrett Cook
June 30, 2016



Quote:
The Allen City Council on Tuesday approved a zoning request to designate a property multi-family residential for an urban style residential development called “Luxe Allen.”

Located north of Exchange Parkway and east of Andrews Parkway near Topgolf and The Village at Allen, the property was formerly zoned light industrial. Davis Development has planned a 580,000-square-foot building that will wrap around the property and envelop a three-deck, 218,360-square-foot parking garage with 802 parking spaces on the 10.5-acre property.

The apartment complex will consist of 445 total units, 236 of which are one-bedroom, 187 to be two-bedroom, and 22 units will be three-bedroom. Apartments will be accessed internally from the parking garage via climate-controlled corridors.
Quote:
The apartments average 944 square feet in size, larger than the 500 square feet required for apartment units by multi-family zoning, Bass said.

Almost two acres of land will be dedicated to open space with decorative paving areas along the fire lane. The area will include amenities such as tree wells and outdoor furniture.
