(Dallas, Texas) June 26, 2014 – Encore Office, LLC, a subsidiary of Dallas-based Encore Enterprises, Inc., in partnership with Wolverine Interests, acquired land to develop an office building featuring Gearbox Software as lead tenant of a midrise, 166,051 square foot office building in Frisco, Texas.
Located across from Toyota Stadium, home of FC Dallas, on Main Street and near the Dallas North Tollway, the property will be the newest addition to Frisco Square, an urban, mixed-use master-planned development consisting of approximately 147 acres. The plans also include the development of a five-story parking structure and retail, restaurant and fitness amenities.
“We are extremely excited about the development for Gearbox at Frisco Square and look forward to adding it to our office portfolio. With the quality of the design, favorable access and mixed-use amenities, the building will appeal to tenants seeking larger space and ample parking,” said Mark Cypert, President of Encore Office.
When complete, the entire Frisco Square master-planned development will ultimately encompass as much as 4.4 million square feet of multi-family, office, retail and government office space in a pedestrian-friendly, urban environment.
“Frisco Square continues to benefit from strong economic and political dedication from the City of Frisco, and we believe our Gearbox Software project will also follow suit,” said Bharat Sangani M.D., Chairman of Encore Enterprises.
Gearbox Software will relocate its headquarters from Plano to Frisco Square in 2015. “I am very excited to be moving to Frisco,” said Randy Pitchford, President of Gearbox Software. “We’re convinced that Frisco Square is the perfect environment for Gearbox Software’s new headquarters and we are eager to break ground, build out and move in so that we may join the community and bring everything we can to the city as a Frisco business and as Frisco citizens.”
