Hillwood Commons I

Fort Worth, Texas

Hillwood Development Company selected BOKA Powell to design the new 157,000 square-foot Class A office building in Alliance Town Center, just north of Heritage Trace Parkway. The speculative building features a dramatic modern porch entrance and three-story atrium. The lobby welcomes visitors with an inviting wood wall visible through floor-to-ceiling windows. The modern design has a regional style, with locally sourced stone and steel materials and a color palette that reflects the indigenous landscape. Large canopies bracket the lobby entries, creating an engaging grand porch that will glow at night. Planned for a variety of tenants, the structure includes two three-story wings of 75,000 square feet, with the lobby tucked in the center. The design is flexible and can accommodate a variety of tenant types, whether they require traditional offices or an open floor plan. Outside, a pedestrian corridor provides easy access to nearby amenities at Alliance Town Center. An adjacent green belt provides access to a jogging trail and recreational areas. The building also include a number of green design elements, including the use of locally-sourced materials, low-emissivity “low-e” coated glass, taller window heights that bring in natural light, exterior passive sun shading devices, a solar orientation to limit solar loads, trees throughout the parking lot, and high-albedo roofing and paving that reflect sunlight.
