New Office Development Will Bring DFW Its First Automated Valet

Yes, a robot will park your car for you.

A 30,000 square-foot Class A office development in Fort Worth will bring Cowtown its first automated valet parking garage. Yes, that means a robot will park your car for you.

The Triune Centre is the first luxury office building in the United States to get one, according to Stream Realty Partners. Stream, real estate investment firm Cornerstone Projects Group, and engineering firm Trident Structures announced the six-floor luxury office building this week.

The fully automated robotic, palleted vehicle handling system will offer a valet-style parking service, ordered via the property’s proprietary app.

The automated parking garage provides the development to accommodate more usable square feet into the office building–a conversation many developers are having.

While the automated valet system may be a first inside a Fort Worth office development, the concept itself is not new.

For example, a similar parking garage will be housed at Houston’s Railway Heights project. A Seattle-area cancer care center also incorporated a robot-run automated car parking system for its guests and patients.

Located just south of Fort Worth’s Cultural District and Dickies Arena, the office space follows a surge of similar projects in Fort Worth: 200,000 square feet of office space was added to the city’s market in 2019, and Triune Centre is among the 75,000 square feet of office space currently under construction.

“Triune Centre is set to enter the Fort Worth office market as an immediate leader during a time of substantial demand,” said Cullen Donohue, senior associate of Stream’s Fort Worth office, in a release.

The project is scheduled to break ground as early as May 2020. And construction is set to be completed by Summer 2021.

Stream Realty’s Cullen Donohue, Seth Koschak, and Vic Meyer will manage leasing for the property on behalf of Cornerstone Projects Group.

“Our team is confident this property will attract many prominent tenants throughout Fort Worth,” Donohue said in a release.
