VanTrust Real Estate broke ground Wednesday on The Offices Two at Frisco Station, a 210,000-square-foot, Class A office building along the Dallas North Tollway.

The new building is the second of five planned office buildings in the office district at the 242-acre mixed-used Frisco Station development, which will total 5 million square feet of office space when complete.

“There has been substantial corporate interest throughout Frisco, and we have witnessed firsthand the growing demand for high-quality office space in the North Platinum Corridor,” said Geoff Meyer, executive vice president of development for VanTrust Real Estate.

The six-story, mid-rise office tower is slated to finish construction in September 2019. Amenities to the building will include structured parking, a fitness center, conference center and tenant lounge. The building has been designed to support current and future technology.

According to VanTrust, the building will have robust communications and power infrastructure that includes dual-power feeds and multiple fiber optic providers. Tenants will be able to benefit from the AT&T 5G Evolution wireless technology that is being integrated across Frisco Station’s parks, offices, hotels and residential properties.

The technology integration is one of the reasons why Brierley+Partners will be moving its global headquarters to The Offices One at Frisco Station.

The firm, which specializes in customer loyalty programs and marketing solutions, is currently located in Plano and plans to move to Frisco Station by the end of May 2019, CEO Kats Murakami said.

“We looked at and toured many properties around the Plano and Frisco area, but none matched the Frisco Station property. The location is incredible and situates our team at the center of a vibrant and growing area,” Murakami said.

Mike Berry, president of Hillwood, Frisco Station’s master developer, said Frisco Station is setting a new standard for urban developments.

“Frisco Station is truly a unique destination that is bringing together all of the elements needed to create an innovative, engaging and collaborative environment,” Berry said.

The design team of The Offices Two at Frisco Station includes project architects HKS Inc., design-build contractor Manhattan Construction and Kimley Horn and Associates as the civil engineer on record. Cushman & Wakefield is handling marketing and leasing for the property.
