An open-air heavy equipment entertainment company, Extreme Sandbox, is set to make The Station in the Sachse its exclusive Texas home. The Hastings, Minnesota-based company has inked a 10-acre lease at the mixed-use station, developed by PMB Capital Investments, capping the project’s first phase of construction.

The new venue is scheduled to open in September.

“We are thrilled to welcome Extreme Sandbox to The Station as we conclude the district’s first stage of construction,” said Taylor Baird, partner at PMB Capital Investments.

A 2016 Shark Tank appearance led to CEO and founder Randy Stenger earning a joint investment partnership between Kevin O’Leary and Mark Cuban. The adventure company presents guests with a unique “bucket-list” opportunity to operate construction equipment, such as excavators, bulldozers, and wheel loaders, for sheer amusement.

“The city of Sachse is an incredible community and the perfect hub for new businesses to grow and thrive,” Stenger said. “We look forward to bringing this exciting outdoor activity to the district and expect to benefit from the strong corporate presence in Dallas and surrounding areas. Where else can you play with a 26-ton excavator for fun?”

At 134 acres, The Station is an active, community-driven district being developed by PMB and the City of Sachse. Anchored by Heritage Park, it will offer more than 1,000 new residences and 400,000 square feet of commercial office, restaurant, retail spaces, plus 36 acres of public parks and open space.

Davis Development is underway with The Station’s first phase of urban living units and is set to begin leasing The Linz at The Station in mid-2021. Homebuilders Ashton Woods Homes and K. Hovnanian Homes will debut their initial residential offerings at The Villas at The Station this fall.

“Designing a dynamic, family-focused mixed-use community is at the heart of our vision for The Station,” Baird says.
