The first office building in a new phase of development at Billingsley’s International Business Park in Plano is complete, according to an Oct. 19 press release.

The four-story building, constructed by Adolfson & Peterson Construction and developed by Billingsley Company, is part of a 300-acre mixed-use development near the Dallas North Tollway and President George Bush Turnpike. In addition to housing businesses, the business park has apartments and retail units.

Located at 6201 Plano Parkway, the office building includes indoor-outdoor space and a coffee bar in the lobby, according to the release.

Adjacent to the offices is a campus amenity center that was also recently completed, according to the release. It includes a fitness center, locker rooms, a grab-and-go food service and a large conference room as well as more than 600 parking spaces.

“The design for this new campus is rooted in what matters to employees right now,” said Lucy Burns, Partner at Billingsley Company.

Retail stores were supposed to line the development’s main street, according to the original plan approved in 2014. However, due to uncertainties around the future of retail post-pandemic, the developer asked the city of Plano in June to greenlight a reduction in the amount of store space on the property. The city granted the request.

“This is an interior street and spinal road without visibility,” Billingsley wrote in a letter to the city. “We do not believe retail can be leased or succeed in this location in today’s world.”

In place of some of these retail concepts, the developers plan to incorporate nine live-work units, which provide space for small businesses to operate near multifamily housing units.

The business park currently has over 100 businesses and more than 4,000 employees on its campus, according to Billingsley Company.
