Billingsley Co. Moves Ahead on 1,000-Acre Master-Planned Development in North Dallas
- Feb 03, 2014
Construction is marching ahead as planned for Billingsley Co.’s 1,000-acre master-planned development in North Dallas. Dubbed Cypress Waters, the property is conveniently located within five minutes of the DFW International Airport and near heavily sought-after demographic areas such as Coppell, Southlake and Irving.
Centered around a serene 362-acre lake, Cypress Waters will eventually become a high-density community of as much as 4 million square feet of office space, 45,000 square feet of retail, more than 10,000 residences and three schools.
The residential component of the development was launched last year with the opening of three neighborhoods containing 676 units. The Neighborhoods of Cypress Waters offers one-, two- and three- bedroom apartments and townhomes ranging from 700 to 1,300 square feet.
Work is currently underway on three speculative office buildings that will be an integral part of the corporate campus at Cypress Waters, as reported by Citybizlist. Build-to-suit office opportunities range from 50,000 to 1 million square feet in single- and multi-story buildings and include flexible designs within the Cypress Waters architectural guidelines. Three-story tilt wall panels have already been lifted into place at 8951 Cypress Waters Blvd. for what will be a 188,440-square-foot, three-story office structure.
“This is a spectacular location with access reaching across the Metroplex to Fort Worth and Arlington via the George Bush Turnpike and Plano and and McKinney via SH 121,” said Lucy Burns, partner, in a statement for the press. “We are right on top of DFW International Airport and have toured corporations from across the country and across the Metroplex. Our speed to market will permit tenants to be in occupancy this summer. With the road coming online and parks scheduled to be complete by the end of the second quarter, you can really start to experience how the office campus will have grand outdoor spaces in addition to the retail amenities. More to come on all fronts very soon!”
Additionally, the developers said there are several infrastructure improvement projects underway, including Cypress Waters Boulevard, which will serve as the main entrance to the office park from IH 635. Book-ended by grand sculptures and lined with three parks, the four-lane thoroughfare will connect the retail, office and multifamily components of the development and will terminate at Cypress Waters’ future town center.
