The property, located at 1150, 1201, 1250, 1251 and 1415 State Street and 3661 N. Plano Road, in the City of Richardson, at the intersection of US-75 and President George Bush Turnpike, was thoughtfully developed to embody a live-work-play environment. The four office buildings, constructed in 2016, are the focal point of the master-planned, 186-acre suburban development located at the connection of two major Dart Rail Lines. Consisting of eight luxury apartment complexes, 30 restaurants and bars, a 148-key Aloft hotel and 21 acres of green space and walking trails, the project is the pinnacle of contemporary walkability and desirable amenities.
Dallas-Fort Worth office-using employment continues to remain near historical high at the end of August 2023. The metroplex reported 1.28 million office workers, an increase of 67.6% compared to 2010, and an increase of 21.5% compared to 2019 employment levels, according to Newmark Research. The continued strength and growth in the market’s office employment reflect an enduring appetite for office assets. The Dallas-Fort Worth office market’s long-term outlook remains positive and competitive given the market’s strong economic fundamentals, such as a diversified labor pool and continued office-using jobs growth.
