The stage has been set for another major company to make The Energy Corridor its headquarters, as Trammel Crow Company broke ground recently on Energy Center Three – a 20-story, high-end office development at the southwest corner of North Eldridge Parkway and Interstate 10.
The 546,000-square-foot, Class AA office tower is the first project of several planned for Trammel Crow’s prime, 19-acre Energy Corridor site. Energy Center Three has already been pre-certified as an LEED Gold building, and will cost more than $150 million to develop.
Trammel Crow is partnering with Principal Real Estate Investors on the tower. Energy Center Three is a spec building project, designed by Kirksey Architecture to become home for a major tenant when it is slated to open in late 2014. The tower’s first three floors will feature collaborative spaces and other amenities well-suited for a corporate headquarters.
Energy Corridor building activity has been robust along I-10, as Energy Center Three joins another major campus expanding about a mile away at the N. Dairy Ashford interchange. That project for Shell Oil E&P includes two 336,000 square-foot office buildings.
