Grandscape Named “Best Mixed-Use Project” By D CEO Magazine
By: Julia Bunch , D CEO
An interesting thing happened when the editors of D CEO were judging the nominations for our 2018 Commercial Real Estate Awards. Once we whittled down the nominations into finalists (no small task, considering we received hundreds of well-qualified entries), we found that our honorees fit the bill for several categories.
Our stellar redevelopments and public-private partnerships also had a significant community impact. Many office developments and leases are part of an innovative mixed-use project. And, of course, our individual honorees, such as Broker and Developer of the Year, also have their fingerprints all over the honored projects and deals.
To me, there is no clearer indication that the North Texas commercial real estate industry is working with a shared understanding in mind: what benefits the region benefits the industry. And what benefits the industry certainly made determining the winners of our 2018 Commercial Real Estate Awards a welcome challenge.
Grandscape Best Mixed-Use Project
Bringing the largest retail store in the U.S. to The Colony in 2012 wasn’t enough for Grandscape developer Nebraska Furniture Mart, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway. The 433-acre mixed-use development has racked up several accolades, such as securing leases with first-to-market tenants like sporting goods store Scheels and Andretti Indoor Karting & Games. Though the project will take years to deliver, the developer spent much of 2017 building out infrastructure and committing tenants. The first phases of new development (besides the existing furniture mart) will come online later this year. The more-than-$1 billion development will boast music venues, a movie theater, a Hampton Inn & Suites hotel, several restaurants, and, of course, a stellar lineup of retailers.
Finalists: The Campus at Legacy West; Trammell Crow Center Redevelopment
