The Avenue will include an outdoor plaza, which will serve as a central gathering space with a food hall, water features and a container park, according to a press release from Thakkar Developers, The Avenue's developer.
Once complete, The Avenue will feature 1 million square feet of office space and 275,00 square feet of retail, restaurant and entertainment development. In addition, the community will include 65 single-family homes, about 1,600 urban residential units and three hotels.
It will be a unique community to live, work and play, according to Thakkar Developers CEO Poorvesh Thakkar.
“Through extensive collaboration with the city of Allen and our neighbors, we designed a project that will bring value to the entire Allen community,” Thakkar said in the release.
Zoning for the project was approved unanimously by Allen City Council during a Feb. 11 meeting.
Thakkar Developers plans to break ground on The Avenue before the end of 2020.
