VanTrust Real Estate LLC is moving forward with a 120,000-square-foot speculative office building in the McKinney Corporate Center at Craig Ranch. Scheduled for completion in February 2014, it’s the Kansas City-based development company’s first North Texas project.
The new building will be part of the 185-acre McKinney Corporate Center within Craig Ranch, joining a corporate headquarters complex for Traxxas, which makes radio-controlled cars, trucks and boats.
Burson Holman and Shannon Brown of CBRE have been tapped to oversee marketing of the space. O’Brien & Assocaites is the architect of record, and McKinney-based Mycon General Contractors is handling construction.
VanTrust Real Estate, associated with the auto dealership company Van Tuyl Group, opened an office in Dallas earlier this year. The company also has offices in Phoenix and Columbus, Ohio.
“We are thrilled to be planting the VanTrust flag in McKinney with this project,” said Rich Muller, the company’s vice president of development, in a statement. “The City of McKinney has proven itself to be a very pro-business environment and has been extremely easy to work with. We feel this winning combination gives us a terrific opportunity to be successful.”
The developer’s site can accommodate a second 120,000-square-foot facility, which would give it a total of 240,000 square feet.
