The Dallas Business Journal celebrated 25 years of recognizing commercial and residential excellence at its annual Best Real Estate Deals event, April 20 at The Ritz-Carlton. Cushman & Wakefield was proud to be among those honored, for its work on The Offices at Frisco Station and Irving Music Factory.
The Offices at Frisco Station was named the region’s Best New Suburban Office development. Frisco Station, a 242-acre, mixed-use campus off the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway, is being developed by a formidable trio: Van Trust Real Estate, the Rudman Partnership, and Hillwood Properties. Work is underway on the office component’s first phase, a seven-story, 228,000-square-foot facility. Ultimately, a total of 5 million square feet of office space is planned for Frisco Station, which sits adjacent to The Star in Frisco. Cushman & Wakefield’s Chris Taylor, Johnny Johnson, Clint Madison, and Lauren Napper are overseeing office leasing at Frisco Station. The first building, designed by HKS Inc., will be ready for occupancy this fall.
Irving Music Factory was named winner in the Community Impact category. The project gives the Las Colinas Urban Center its first true mixed-use development and provides unmatched amenities—an 8,000-seat Live Nation indoor/outdoor concert hall, 4,000-seat indoor concert hall, and 207,000 square feet of retail space, nearly all of which has already been leased to tenants like Alamo Drafthouse cinema and more than 20 restaurants. The 100,000-square-foot office component—the first to be developed in the Urban Center in 30 years—has been fully leased to Ethos Group. Cushman & Wakefield’s Matt Schendle and John Fancher represented Irving Music Factory’s developer, The Ark Group, and Andy Leatherman and Brad Selner of JLL represented Ethos Group.
