This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
ExteNet Systems is moving its headquarters from Illinois to Frisco.
The 5G and fiber infrastructure provider leased 37K SF at The Offices Three at Frisco Station, located at the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway. This is the second lease in the 210K SF, Class-A speculative building, which opened last spring.
“By tapping into Frisco Station’s unique connectivity to major thoroughfares and expansive walkability to retail and restaurants, ExteNet Systems will be able to capitalize on the North Platinum Corridor that is exploding with new infrastructure investment,” Chris McCluskey, vice president of development at Frisco Station developer VanTrust Real Estate, said in a statement.
ExteNet chose Frisco due to its proximity to major clients and industry partners, according to a news release. The HQ will house about 150 employees focused on deploying and managing 5G and fiber infrastructure for sports, entertainment and hospitality venues as well as large enterprises, colleges, healthcare facilities and municipal governments, per the release.
“ExteNet is a great addition to Frisco's booming tech and innovation economy,” Mayor Jeff Cheney said in a statement. “Our residents will benefit from this growth with the creation of 110 new jobs in Frisco."
Clint Madison, John Fancher and Cynthia Cowen of Cushman & Wakefield represented the landlord, VanTrust Real Estate. ExteNet was represented by Todd Schaefer, Robert Blount and Scott Hage of JLL.
The move is expected to be complete by the first quarter of next year.
