New live-work-play development plans to brighten up Plano
Since the early 2000s, Plano’s Market Square Mall has stood empty at US 75 and Spring Creek Parkway.
But now the original mall site is getting a makeover with the arrival of Assembly Parka chic mixed-use development from Triten Real Estate Partners.
The live-work-play properties will also include approximately one mile of newly paved hiking and biking trails that connect to nearby residential neighborhoods and the Oak Point Nature Preserve, making the area now walkable.
Expect 180,000 square feet of repurposed and reimagined Class A creative office space designed by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, with private and shared spaces as well as conference rooms equipped with state-of-the-art technology.
Soaring exposed ceilings meet walls of windows, with an acre of parkland and green space just outside for the perfect lunchtime getaway. There’s also plenty of bike storage inside, if you’re planning on cycling to work or taking a midday stroll.
Enjoy 4,300 square feet of state-of-the-art fitness space dedicated to Assembly Park employees. The fitness center will include all modern gym equipment and amenities and will feature retractable floor-to-ceiling windows with central park views.
Of course, being right off the North Central Freeway and just above the President George Bush Turnpike means direct access to major thoroughfares, established neighborhoods and nearby public transportation.
Designed by GFF Architects, The Annabel comprises more than 300 units, including one-story apartments and multi-story townhouses with private garages, all around the daily amenities of Assembly Park.
Walk to cafes, jog to a free outdoor yoga class, or cycle from your home to nearby Oak Point Nature Reserve. Farmers markets, outdoor movies, live music and local street art are all part of Assembly Park’s future event offerings.
Children can let off steam in the playground while Fido can have fun in the dedicated dog park.
The main park plans to offer a full schedule of daytime and nighttime events for people of all ages. After all, developer Triten is well known for its successful mixed-use centers in Houston that feature an endless assortment of things to do and events to enjoy.
The southern portion of the development, off Spring Creek Parkway, is where 16,500 square feet of retail space is planned. It will house unique, chef-led concepts such as trendy cafes, local breweries and cool restaurants, all designed by Michael Hsu Office of Architecture.
