Balfour Beatty Construction has started work on the first phase of an upscale office park in Allen, Texas.
The first phase of the One Bethany at Watters Creek, designed by BOKA Powell, will include a 11,610 sq m Class A office building with a 570-space parking garage. The office building will feature a conference centre, a training room, a tenant’s lounge and a fitness centre.
The overall project, to be located at the northwest corner of Bethany Drive and Watters Creek Boulevard, is being developed by Kaizen Development Partners. It will include a mix of multi-tenant and single-tenant build-to-suit Class A office buildings.
The second phase of the project will add up to 23,230 sq m of office space, allowing the developer to accommodate larger tenants.
Derrick Evers, Kaizen Development Partners CEO, said: "We recognize the growing demands by users of space trending north, so we are excited to respond with something fresh and new to the City of Allen."
The first phase of the project is slated for completion in the first quarter of 2018.
“Tenants have been demanding a Class A office building with proximity to a walkable, mixed-use project like Watters Creek. One Bethany at Watters Creek will deliver on all these aspects,” said Dan Bowman, Allen Economic Development executive director.
The Allen Economic Development Corporation (AEDC) facilitates company relocations and assists with the expansion of existing businesses.
