PLANO, Texas – (Dec. 14, 2021) – Adolfson & Peterson Construction, a national construction management firm, general contractor and Engineering News-Record Top 100 Contractor, and Billingsley Company, a leading developer, have broken ground on an office building in an additional phase of Billingsley’s International Business Park.
The new five-story, 250,000-square-foot building will be located within the business park, northwest of President George Bush Turnpike (SH 190) and one block from the Dallas North Tollway in Plano, Texas. AP will manage construction on the tilt-wall core/shell office building; a three-level, 180,000-square-foot parking garage with 584 spaces; and various site improvements including landscaping and site paving.
“While Dallas’ office market has been slow to recover, absorption and demand ticked upward for the third quarter. We believe this trend positions Billingsley’s award-winning business park – as well as this new office building – well in the coming years,” said Will Pender, president of AP Gulf States. “We’re excited to get to work on our fourth major office project with Billingsley and help them take another step forward in completing this state-of-the-art development.”
The office building site will be adjacent to another four-story, 187,100-square-foot office building and 9,000-square-foot amenity center with a large fitness center, conference center, and tenant lounge with a curated mini-market, that was completed by AP in June 2020. GFF Architects is the planning architect for the project, and Trevor Franke and Gini Rounsaville with JLL are coordinating the building leasing for Billingsley.
“The way offices are being used is evolving and we constantly strive to meet the ever-changing needs of our customers,” said Lucy Burns, partner at Billingsley Company. “There will be a first-floor coffee lounge with café-style seating, soaring windows, and large art installations indoors and out. We’ve added patios to the first floor and balconies on several floors – all of which will overlook a large park with meeting areas and wi-fi – giving employees the option to work outdoors.”
International Business Park is a 300-acre, master-planned campus with 11 buildings and 1.4 million square feet of developed office space in Dallas’ Platinum Corridor, America’s fastest-growing suburban office district. The park is currently home to more than 100 businesses and more than 4,000 employees.
Notable AP Gulf States projects include PGA of America’s new headquarters in Frisco; VariSpace Coppell and Vari’s headquarters in Coppell; the Arlington ISD Arts and Athletics Complex in Arlington; several education facilities for the University of Texas and Fort Worth ISD; and Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas. In addition, AP’s Midland-based West Texas office is currently working on Texas Tech’s Health Science Center project and Potter County’s District Courts Building in Amarillo, while the Central Texas office is working with Northside ISD on several projects.
