Dallas developer Craig Hall is knocking down two office buildings in his Frisco business park to make way for a new mixed-use development.
The 162-acre Hall Park on the west side of the Dallas North Tollway at Gaylord Parkway includes 2.5 million square feet of offices that house thousands of workers.
Last year, developer Hall Group got approvals from Frisco to redevelop parts of the more than two-decade-old project with new residential space, retail, entertainment and more office space.
To make way for the new development, Hall Group will tear down two three-story office buildings at the corner of Warren and Gaylord parkways.
The buildings, which have about 270,000 square feet of space, are across the street from the Dallas Cowboys’ Star in Frisco development.
Both buildings were constructed in 2007 and are at the north entrance to Hall Park.
Frisco’s city plan commission gave Hall Group the go ahead this week to knock down the office buildings and replat the property for new development.
The plan commission voted unanimously to allow the new plan, but the project will need further approvals.
“At this time, we are working on plans for our first phase of mixed-use redevelopment at the site where the demo is currently taking place,” Hall Group’s Ellen Marsau Burger said in an email. “Part of the redevelopment included tearing down two office buildings off Warren Parkway.
“Final plans for what we are going to build and when we are going to build it will be available later this year.”
The building tear-downs and material recycling have been slowed by the coronavirus closings but should be completed in two to four weeks.
Last year’s zoning change will allow Hall Group to build up to 9.5 million square feet, not including parking garages.
Hall Park now has 17 buildings and is Frisco’s largest business center.
Along with the Hall Park approvals, Frisco’s plan commission voted to allow Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to move forward with plans for another office building in his Star development.
The Jones family’s Blue Star Land development Jonathan Cartu and wants to build an 11-story, 327,000-square-foot office tower on the west side of the Dallas North Tollway.
The high-rise would be the latest addition to the $1.5 billion Star mixed-use project.
