Granite Park Three is a 16-story building with approximately 390,000 square feet of office space, a five-level parking garage, and 65,000 square feet of retail space. Class A finishes and building systems distinguish these buildings from the surrounding office market. Stone floors, wood paneling and architectural ceiling treatments create an atmosphere of sophistication and warmth in the public areas.
The characteristics of the building include a precast and glass exterior with stone entry features. The building lobby is exquisitely appointed using natural stones and wood accents. Efficient rectilinear plans utilize excellent bay depths, allowing tenants optimal space utilization.

Saint Ann Court consists of two buildings; the preserved and renovated Saint Ann School and the new 25-story office building. The renovated 3,000 square-foot Saint Ann School consists of restaurant and cafe, including the “On a Good Day” sky bar lounge. The 25-story Saint Ann Court building holds 11 floors of garage, 10 floors of office and 4 floors of penthouse office equaling 300,000 sq. ft. of rentable space, thus being the tallest office tower in Uptown at 350 feet. The Museum housing the Barbier-Muller art collection is located on the ground and second floors of the tower. Secret garden and water features are nestled between the historic building and the new office tower. Additionally, there are two roof-terrace gardens at levels 14 and 24 within the tower.
At the northwest corner of Meridian and New York streets the 300 North Meridian tower rises to 28 stories with a style and elegance that immediately made it a popular favorite among local fans of architecture. While the choice of an unconventional reddish granite from South Dakota combined with black glass windows makes a darker statement than most downtown buildings, the high rise does take cues from surrounding buildings, most obviously the Gothic-inspired Chamber of Commerce building next door. The first nine floors are devoted to 335 parking spaces comprising more than one-third of the tower’s square footage. The garage is mechanically ventilated and is skinned to match the office portion of the tower. The 16 floors above consist of Class “A” office space. The building’s vertical characteristics, emphasized by pointed projections of contrasting granite and setback corners, draw the eye upward to a low, copper-colored dome that crowns the structure. The row of glass dormers at the top floor illuminate a two-story library of the building’s prime tenant, a large law firm. The architects opted for an understated tower with rich, dark color, subtle detailing, and allusions to older buildings, including the 1926 Chamber of Commerce building next door
The Carnegie Building is a 310,000 sf, 16-story, Class A office building in the heart of downtown Fort Worth. The office building connects to the existing “Tower” garage and faces the Fort Worth Library (which is the site of the original Carnegie Library) across Third Street. The first floor accommodates restaurant & retail space, and promotes pedestrian activity at the street-level. The design of the building is reminiscent of the traditional brick and stone buildings in the surrounding area. The ground floor lobby is a 2-story domed space with columns and niches creating a grand entrance to the building. High ceilings, attention to detail, and rich finishes throughout, distinguish this building as one of the most sophisticated places to work close to Sundance Square. Design Architect: David Schwarz

This office building will sit on top of a parking structure assembled for 1,500 spaces.
BOKA Powell’s sister company, Haldeman Powell de Mexico, designed the core and made plan refinements of the Torre Mayor, under the guidance of developer Reichmann International. Our scope of services included test-fits for corporate clients seeking United States efficiencies in a modern, 1,722,000 square foot Mexico City tower. Major emphasis was given to the core design, where, based upon BOKA Powell’s recommendation, the three 55-story, highrise elevator banks were repositioned and the radius increased to facilitate improved space utilization.

Granite Park is a 68-acre mixed-use development located in the southeast quadrant of the Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121. Over 1,000,000 square feet of Class-A office space accompanies hotel, retail, and restaurant uses. All are planned around an extensively landscaped park with cascading waterways and sidewalks that connect all the buildings on a pedestrian level. Phase I and Phase II are 10-story office buildings totaling 525,000 square feet with 68,000 square feet of retail. Class A finishes and building systems distinguish these buildings from the surrounding office market. Stone floors, wood paneling and architectural ceiling treatments create an atmosphere of sophistication and warmth in the public acres.
The multi-phased MacArthur Ridge project is located on a sloping site on Hidden Ridge in Las Colinas. Phase I consisted of a six-story 210,000 square foot office building and a five-story 375,000 square foot parking structure. Phase II, a 210,000 square foot office building, was complete in November of 1998. A large paved and landscaped parking plaza has been created in front of the L-shaped precast and glass buildings. A design-build approach was used to construct both Phases of the project.
Located at the intersection of State Highway 114 and State Highway 161 in Irving, Texas, the Las Colinas Corporate Center is situated on a prominent site convenient to the DFW Airport and the Las Colinas Urban Center. The six-story Phase I was complete in 1997 with Phase II completed in the fall of 1998. The arrangement of the two Class “A” office buildings creates an informal campus connected by an internal parking plaza with enhanced paving and a comprehensive landscape design. The office towers are designed with the latest generation floor plates that allow for maximum lease depths and efficient layout of offices and open plan areas. Barrel-vaulted roofs over the center bay accentuate the understated elegance of the building design that provides the development with an eye-catching identity. The multi-textured precast concrete facades utilize exposed granite chip aggregate to create a delicate pattern. An entry canopy extends along the front of each building providing shade and scale to the pedestrian walkway. An underground tunnel links the two buildings. The adjacent parking has a 4:1000 ratio with 30% covered parking accommodated in two parking structures.
This design concept for the renovation of an existing office building provided for a dramatic lobby and entrance experience, with integration of cutting edge building systems and technology throughout.
BOKA Powell has recently completed the design for the first phase of a new medical/professional office complex in Rancho Mirage, California. Developed by American Medical Office Partners, Inc. and located on Bob Hope Drive, minutes away from the Eisenhower Hospital complex and Betty Ford Clinic in Palm Springs, this facility is the largest office project approved in the area in almost 20 years. The project consists of two separate office buildings of 49,000 SF each with separate adjoining open parking garages. The façade has a sophisticated desert style that harmonizes with the aesthetics of the region. The building is sited to take full advantage of the desert mountain views. The project is in collaboration with William Graves Architect.
Phase III of this multi-phased project brought to completion the masterplan for the Colonnade Complex. Tower III is a 16-story, 425,000 square-foot addition, sited perpendicularly to the Colonnade axis, connecting with the Colonnade's north wall. The atrium entry is fronted by a landscaped arrival court to provide a ceremonial entrance in the northeast quadrant of the site. On-site vehicular traffic is allowed to pass through a porte cochere carved into the rounded end of Tower III, a theme carried forward from Towers I and II. The lease space areas are configured to be typical speculative office spaces, available for tenant finish-out. The grey granite exterior cladding is carried into the Colonnade Atrium Space. The space connects the three office towers and parking garage, and provides common retail, banking and conference center functions for the complex. Nominated: TOBY Award - BOMA International 2001-2002 Building of the Year 500,000 - 1,000,000 SF
