Fort Worth, Texas/164,000 SF
The new home of Mercedes-Benz Financial and Daimler Truck Financial is a 164,000 square foot, three-story, Class A office space, located in Fort Worth, Texas. Built to suit at 13650 Heritage Parkway, in the AllianceTexas community, Michigan-based Daimler and Mercedes-Benz are the only occupying tenants of the new facility. Previously based in suburban Chicago, Daimler Truck Financial services is moving to the building, which includes space for the 550 current employees, and room for up to 800 total employees.
Determined to shake up the buttoned-down image of traditional corporate offices, Daimler Financial gave BOKA Powell the design direction to create an environment that’s creative – a space to conduct business that’s fresh and cutting-edge. Through a partnership between the Financial companies and the art departments at Texas Christian University and Southern Methodist University, the design is striking in color and style, presenting visitors with a veritable art gallery. The space currently features 80 works of art from more than 40 artists, in an exhibition entitled “Experiencing Perspectives.”
BOKA Powell’s interior design stays with the contemporary, clean design that defines Mercedes-Benz automobiles and engineering. The end result is a space that complements the students’ work and produces a working environment that invokes imagination, creativity and collaboration.
