Add Coca-Cola to the big corporate brands picking Plano. Along with Toyota, JPMorgan Chase, and Liberty Mutual, all of which have new campuses underway in Legacy West, Coca-Cola has just signed on for space in the booming city.
The soft drink giant has leased nearly 27,000 square feet in Grante Park One, part of Granite Properties’ mixed-use development at the southeast corner of State Highway 121 and the Dallas North Tollway. It will use the space as a regional operations for Coca-Cola North America; about 100 employees will move to the ninth floor of the building in December.
The tenant was represented by Greg Biggs, Conor McCarthy, Torrey Littlejohn, and Brooke Armstrong of JLL in Dallas, and by Robert W. Farrar of Robert W. Farrar & Associates Ltd. in Atlanta. Granite was represented in-house by Aarica Mims and Robert Jimenez.
To date, Granite Park consists of five Class-A office towers, a 300-room Hilton hotel, about about 80,000 square feet of retail space, including The Boardwalk. The 10-story, 256,000-square-foot Granite Park One was built in 1999. It’s currently getting a lobby expansion and remodel, including a new entrance for better connectivity to the rest of the park. Renovations are scheduled for completion this fall.
