McCarthy Awarded 1920 McKinney Avenue Office

McCarthy was recently awarded the construction contract for 1920 McKinney Ave. in Uptown Dallas. The 150,000-square-foot Class A office tower will include office space, parking and 8,500 square feet of ground floor retail and restaurant space. A groundbreaking event was held on Sept. 18 to commemorate the start of the project.

KDC selected McCarthy to build the 14-story office tower located on McKinney Avenue and Harwood Street, adjacent to Klyde Warren Park. The building will have direct access to downtown and Uptown Dallas. The project will seek Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification for new construction through the United States Green Building Council.

“We are excited to begin work on our fourth project with KDC and continue our relationship with this premier developer,” said McCarthy Texas Region President Mike McWay. “This project has an aggressive schedule, but our in-depth knowledge of the challenges, site constraints and proposed solutions to execute this project make McCarthy the right builder for this job.” The project includes parking for 470 cars, six levels of office space and main lobby and retail space on the ground floor. The building will provide multi-tenant office space, anchored by Invesco Real Estate, and will feature a restaurant at the ground floor level. The project also includes a site package that involves hardscape, planting with irrigation and a water feature.

KDC and McCarthy have a successful track record of working together including the completion of the Blue Cross Blue Shield Headquarters and Nortel Networks, both located in Richardson, Texas, and the Sally Beauty Company Service Center in Denton, Texas.

The construction of 1920 McKinney is set to complete in spring 2016.
