Two more towers on the way from developer Granite Properties

One of the Dallas area’s top developers is pushing ahead with plans for two new towers — one in Uptown Dallas and the other in Plano.

Granite Properties has been working on the high-rises for some time. But the company recently filed planning documents showing details of the developments.

The Granite Park Six tower is an 18-story building to be constructed just east of the Dallas North Tollway in Plano. The 420,000-square-foot project is the latest phase of Granite Properties’ more than 20-year-old mixed-use development at the southeast corner of the tollway and State Highway 121

Designed by architect BOKA Powell, Granite Park Six would be the tallest building yet in the development. Granite Properties recently began utilities and landscaping work for “future Granite Park Six Office Tower,” according to planning documents filed with the state. And the developer is already pitching the project to prospective tenants.

In Uptown Dallas, Granite Properties has been working on plans for its 23 Springs high-rise at Cedar Springs Road and Maple Avenue since 2018. The new office and retail tower would replace small office buildings on the corner.

The developer said it plans to break ground on the $169 million mixed-use project next year with a 26-story speculative office building, a one-story restaurant and six levels of below grade parking, according to state planning documents.

Dallas architect GFF designed the Uptown development, which would take more than two years to build. It’s one of the largest new towers proposed in the Uptown neighborhood just north of downtown Dallas.
