Irving, Texas/400,000 square feet
BOKA Powell was engaged by Houston-based Fidelis Realty Partners and construction manager Guidon Real Estate Project Solutions to design a 456,000 SF build-to-suit headquarters for a North Texas-based national not-for-profit healthcare system. The striking 15-story curtainwall office building will occupy a high-profile site at the corner of West Las Colinas Boulevard and North O’Connor Boulevard at the heart of the Las Colinas Urban Center. A ten-level parking structure will sit adjacent to the building, forming a landscaped courtyard between the office building and garage and also abutting the Las Colinas canal waterway. BOKA Powell is providing full interior design services as well as core/shell architecture. A true build-to-suit, the project will include unique elements for this corporate user, including a chapel, museum, clinic, amenitized lobby with coffee bar and outdoor café, an indoor fitness center and an outdoor fitness lawn, a full-floor, elevated conference center, food hall with multiple large outdoor terraces overlooking Lake Carolyn, the Music Factory, and surrounding development within Las Colinas. A “superfloor” on level two, encompassing 46,500 SF, allows for critical functions to be located adjacent to one another, supported by perimeter conference and collaboration zones. Each level of the tower above (levels 4 through 15) has a step-out balcony to provide easy access to fresh air, a critical element of post-COVID design strategy. The top level of the building houses company leadership as well as a 1,500 SF terrace. Should the user require additional office space, a second phase of the development has been designed to architecturally and programmatically complement the first phase.
