City officials and Craig Hall, founder and chairman of Hall Group, broke ground on the new building Monday at 3201 Dallas Parkway. The Class AA building will be 12 stories and will contain 300,000 square feet. The building is expected to be complete between late 2017 and early 2018.

“This is not what Craig Hall saw nearly 20 years ago,” Frisco Mayor Maher Maso said, gesturing out to the Frisco skyline during the groundbreaking ceremony. “He just saw farmland … and we are so fortunate that he had the vision to get this [office park] started. We have a lot going on here with the $5 Billion Mile, but it took people like Craig Hall, visionaries, to invest in the first buildings that came here.”

Hall opened the first speculative building at Hall Park in 1998 and now the office park is 96 percent leased with 16 completed buildings.

“When we started this, the goal was to build something different so that tenants could retain and recruit employees better than in a normal office building in a normal office park,” Hall said. “So we thought incorporating art work and green space would be a big step in that direction.”

The office park features water features, native landscaping and walking trails as well as artwork by Texas artists.

“I think Frisco’s people have created a place that is great to raise a family and the people here have consistently supported the community and … we’ve been blessed and fortunate to be a part of that,” Hall said.

Hall Park began a park-wide enhancement in May 2016 that includes new signage, lighting and modern amenities that include an expanded fitness center, wine lounge, conferencing center, retail and restaurant plaza.
