Arlington, TX, January 30, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- When Poynter Scifres Companies chose a location for their latest multi-story value office building, they focused on the Las Colinas area and the growing State Highway 161 corridor.
“We felt like there was a need for office space that offered larger floor plans and heavier parking in this area,” said Jim Poynter, Partner for Poynter Scifres Companies. “The location we chose is at the intersection of State Highway 161 and Walnut Hill Lane, which is the highest point in the Las Colinas area. We’re just outside the boundary of Las Colinas which gives us the best of both worlds as we’re in a great place for this type of office building but our clients will be able to do things with signage that they couldn’t do if we were in Las Colinas proper.”
Poynter Scifres chose Bob Moore Construction to take the lead as general contractor and Hardy McCullah / MLM Architects to design their new building, which was completed in December 2007.
The 106,800 SF Offices @ 161/Walnut Hill building adds a dramatic element to the Highway 161 corridor skyline. It features beige, textured walls with large banks of windows to provide maximum light to the interior. Each entrance to the lobby is showcased with a two-story, 41-foot curved curtain wall of glass. The main entrance also features a three-pillar stone-clad archway.
On the interior the lobby is finely finished in a high-end modern design style, with luxurious multi-finished tile, indirect ceiling lighting and wood accent trim on the walls and along the staircase. A curved grand staircase and elevator provide access to the second floor. The second floor features an expansive common area with curved windows, indirect lighting and accented carpeting. The building’s shell spaces include four rectangular “pods” that each offer nearly 27,000 square feet or together over 106,000 SF of unfinished office space.
“The curb appeal is great,” said Poynter. “With those 41-foot spans of glass at the entrances, it really has the wow factor for brokers and potential tenants when they first approach the building. This is as good looking a two-story office as we’ve been associated with.”
“This building showcases our ability to deliver an extraordinary office building,” said Ed McGuire, Vice President of Construction for Bob Moore Construction. “Hardy McCullah came up with a superb design to meet Poynter Scifres’ needs for luxury office space and our construction team did a tremendous job of bringing those designs to life. It’s always a pleasure working with Jim Poynter. He’s an established real estate professional with almost 30 years of experience, so he understands the construction process and provides clear and reasoned leadership from the developer’s perspective.”
“This is our third significant office building with Bob Moore Construction,” said Poynter. “We’ve come to know when those guys tell us they’ll do something, we can rely on it. Phillip Bell, Ed McGuire and their team members are consummate professionals. Bob Moore Construction has built all our value office products and hopefully will continue to do so.”
