Construction has started on the next tower in the 90-acre Granite Park development in West Plano.

Developer Granite Properties is building the 10-story, 330,000-square-foot building on the south side of State Highway 121.

The high-rise will be the seventh office building in the 17-year-old mixed-use project which is located at the southeast corner of Dallas North Tollway and State Highway 121.

“We started Granite Park VII yesterday,” said Granite Properties’ president Greg Fuller.

The office tower designed by BOKA Powell is fully leased to mortgage giant Fannie Mae.

The government-backed mortgage company plans to move about 1,000 people into the building when it opens late next year.

Granite Park now has 1.5 million square feet of office space housing about 150 companies.
