New office building set to start on the tollway in Frisco

Construction will start this summer on the project located just south of Gaylord Parkway. (Heady Investments)
Developer Randy Heady – who had just completed an office project in West Plano – is moving up the Dallas North Tollway with an new building in Frisco.
Heady Investments will build the 6-story, 170,000-square-foot project near the southeast corner of the tollway and Gaylord Parkway. The building will be called Frisco Bridges Place.
The developer is buying the land for the project from the City of Frisco and will rent parking spaces next door in a city-owned garage.
Construction will start on the project this summer, Heady said Thursday.
“We’ve been working with the City of Frisco on this project to make it happen,” he said. “There is a huge demand for office space in that area.”
Architect ANPH Inc. designed the new building. Mark Lewis and Sayres Heady with Heady Investments are leasing the project.
Heady Investments’ building in Plano’s Legacy business park is about 50 percent leased. The 6-story building is located on the east side of the tollway at Headquarters Drive.
“We are showing the space we have left to tenants two or three times a day,” Heady said.
The planned Frisco building – which will be ready in October of next year – is the sixth project Heady Investments has done along the Dallas North Tollway.
Heady Investments’ new Frisco project will be the second major office development planned for that area.
Developer Hall Financial is currently finishing work on a 200,000-square-foot office building across the tollway at the southwest corner with Gaylord Parkway.
And developers are working on several new office projects further south in Plano.
