Adolfson & Peterson Construction broke ground on a $47M build-to-suit project for the world’s largest manufacturer of law enforcement video systems, WatchGuard Video. WatchGuard will relocate about three miles north of its current offices to new corporate headquarters on Exchange Parkway and Andrews Parkway in Allen. The first of the two project phases will deliver Q1 2018.
A two-story, 140k SF building costing $37M comprises Phase 1. An additional 60k SF will be completed in 2022 for the $10M Phase 2.
