Crow Holdings Development announced plans for The Offices at Southstone Yards, a mass timber construction office building, which will serve as the anchor building in a 45-acre mixed-use development in Frisco, Texas. With over one million square feet of office slated within the development, this first office building will bring 235,000 square feet of highly amenitized and environmentally friendly office space in seven stories of the first mass timber construction in North Texas.

Compared to more commonly used building materials like steel and concrete, mass timber construction is more sustainable, provides greater design flexibility, results in a lighter environmental footprint and offers higher thermal insulation. In addition, The Offices at Southstone Yards’ raised floors provide additional flexibility for electrical infrastructure, reduced build-out costs, and easier maintenance long-term. The complex will also feature modern amenities including on-site fitness and wellness centers, conference and executive meeting areas, an air-filtration system for enhanced indoor air quality, and a biophilic design with two adjacent programmed parks totaling more than three acres.
