Recently, the ground breaking ceremony for FarmWORK One, a class A office building took place in Allen, Texas. However, this office building is only part of the initial phase of a 135 acre mixed use project dubbed The Farm in Allen. JaRyCo, a local developer is in charge of the project
FrameWORK One will be the first office building within the upcoming master planned mixed use project in Allen. The developer is building the office at the intersection between Tollway and Alma Drive, just at the southeastern corner. Therefore, its location will be proximal to The Farm’s Central District, and The Hub, which opened last year. Additionally, the building would also expose its occupants to a walkable environment surrounded by various dining, retail and entertainment venues. The newly opened West Lake Park will be an easy one-block walk away from the office building as well. This recreational facility features natural prairie vegetation around a 1.5-acre lake.
Timeline for the FarmWORK One project
JaRyCo expects construction on FarmWORK One to reach completion by July 2024. The office complex will be a three story building occupying 102,000 square feet. According to the developer, its design is suitable for the post Covid era, and incorporates numerous features for a great working environment. Therefore, the building would help improve efficiency and teamwork of employees returning to the office work environment.
FarmWORK One will feature outdoor working areas, and amenity spaces at the ground floor level. Balconies will be built for each office floor, and all floors will be equipped with WiFi to improve outdoor work. In addition, the workspace will be equipped with various touchless functionalities. These smart building features will be included in areas such as the parking garage, elevators, restrooms and tenant suites.
The FarmWORK One development team will include Rogers O’Brien as general contractor, and Omniplan is the architect. Nathan Durham, Duane Henley and Natalie Serio of Newmark will be responsible for marketing the project. While Avision Young will handle the leasing arrangements for the building
