Grand Oaks Business Park Expands
Dmac Construction & Development has fully leased all the buildings in Grand Oaks Business Park, so it’s kicking off another.
President Lance McIntyre tells us the new development is a 30k SF tilt-wall. The firm completed Phase 2 of the park last year and took this site photo recently with its drone. It’s now full, and tenant demand is still strong, so Lance says it’s breaking ground this week on the next building. The team is trying something a little different; Lance tells us office demand has been high, so Dmac's creating small suites on the street side of the building dedicated to tenants that want under 2k SF and no warehouse space. Three more buildings are on the site plan in Grand Oaks, which would bring it to 150k SF.
Dmac has a number of other developments working—it’s close to delivering a 30k SF sports facility in Katy. (Rain's being a pest, Lance says, but it should finish by month's end.) That building sits next to the mall on Kingsland Boulevard and will house Elite Volleyball Club. Dmac and Three Square Design—which is handling all of Dmac's latest projects—got creative with the tilt-wall panels with vertical and horizontal windows. (The team's been calling them "crazy windows" and went through 100 versions before selecting these.)
Dmac also just completed a 108k SF office/warehouse build-to-suit for Ellen Lighting off the Beltway and Stafford. It's an all-in-one building with a showroom, retail, office and warehouse. (Lance says the flexibility in design and texture in tilt-wall made it ideal to blend the functions together.) The facility is concrete tilt-wall with a glass curtain wall, wood pattern panels and a two-story portal entry. The lobby includes the owner's high-end light fixtures, a coffee bar and a floating staircase.
