If pushed to the limit, Crystal Creek Village build-out wouldbring as much as 700,000 sf of office-retail. But, that's still upin the air, Sam Kartalis, Henry S. Miller Commercial's presidentand COO, tells GlobeSt.com. What is certain is the $2-millioninitial phase will bring 15,000 sf of neighborhood retail as officetakes a back seat in the present economy. Three leases are in handand more prospects are talking about securing a piece of the actionon 15 acres at the northeast corner of Headquarters and Ohio.Another 10 acres "plus or minus" of office-retail development arebeing plotted for the northeast corner of Hedgecoxe and Ohio. Oneacre already houses a convenience store and the balance is beingdivvied into office and retail pad sites.

The acreage comes with a built-in incentive not commonly foundin the North Dallas-Plano Corridor. Most intersections boast fourcorners of commercial competition. Not so in Crystal Creek's case,emphasizes Kartalis.

The sole corner leveraging at Headquarters and Ohio is asure-fire benefactor when the Texas 121 link is completed. "It willbe a major secondary artery," Kartalis predicts. The joint venturehas been waiting for the past year for the "right time" to breakout the shovels. Now that Headquarters connects Preston Road andOhio, the time has come. It will only get better, he says, in thenext five years when the road runs all the way to Texas 121.
