Real Deals: Renovated Arboretum Village nabs TEXO award

🕐 5 min read

The Fort Worth Business Press obtains some of its Real Deals content through a partnership with Xceligent Inc., a commercial real estate research firm.

Arboretum Village has won industry accolades from TEXO, the commercial contractors association, which chose the Arlington retail center for its Merit Award.

The 80,000-square-foot retail center was honored in a category for properties valued at between $5 million and $10 million.

The property, built in the late 1960s, underwent recent renovation and reconstruction. Bob Moore Construction Inc. was general contractor for the center, owned by Lincoln Property Co.

Work included demolishing the building’s front 80 feet, stripping the interior, restoring and refinishing the remaining walls and rebuilding and finishing the front wall. The parking lot was removed and replaced with 250,000 square feet of new parking space and drive lanes around the building.

The new plaza includes three anchor stores: The Fresh Market, PetSmart and Ace Hardware, along with other retail outlets.

“We are very proud that Arboretum Village was recognized with this award,” said Kyle Whitesell, executive vice president of Bob Moore Construction, commenting in a news release.

The trophy for the TEXO Merit Award will be presented in December at TEXO’s winter banquet.

TEXO is a Dallas-based commercial contractors association affiliated with the Associated Builders and Contractors and the Associated General Contractors of America.

Gaedeke Group unveils plans

for One Legacy West in Plano

Gaedeke Group LLC has unveiled renderings for One Legacy West, the first of two office buildings planned for its 11-acre site at the southeast corner of Sam Rayburn Tollway and Legacy Drive in west Plano.

The Dallas-based investment firm’s 14-story project will be the first multitenant office space to open in Legacy West, a 240-acre mixed-use urban development spearheaded by Karahan Companies, KDC and Columbus Realty Partners.

Gaedeke Group plans to break ground on the tower this summer and complete the project in the fourth quarter of 2016.

“The diversity of the Legacy area gives us a unique opportunity to design and develop a concept that will compete on national and international platforms,” said CEO Sabine Gaedeke Stener, commenting in a news release.

One Legacy West will offer 327,856 square feet with a six-level parking structure. Tenant amenities will include an outdoor terrace with see-through fireplaces and seating areas, conference center, fitness center and electric car charging stations.

One Legacy West was designed by Morrison Dilworth + Walls of Dallas. Austin Commercial was general contractor, Andres Construction was construction manager and Belle Firma was landscape architect.

Gaedeke acquired the land this year in an off-market transaction arranged by its president, Glenn Lickstein. The acreage is directly across the street from Toyota Corp.’s $350 million North American headquarters.

The greater Legacy area, encompassing 2,665 acres, boasts 14 Fortune 1000 corporations, each with more than 1,000 employees, as well as retail and dining destinations and residential communities.
