Brierley Moves Global Headquarters to Frisco Station
Brierley, internationally recognized as the industry leader for creating lifetime loyalty for their customers’ brands, is moving its global headquarters to The Offices One at Frisco Station. Brierley will occupy a total of 56,703 square feet on the sixth and seventh floors of the Class A building located within Frisco Station, the 242-acre mixed-use project located at the northwest quadrant of the Dallas North Tollway and Warren Parkway.
The new Brierley global headquarters will provide ample space to support current and future growth, as well as facilitate collaboration with clients and between Brierley’s global offices in Los Angeles, Tokyo and London. The office will be designed with employee and client needs as the primary focus. Providing employees with natural light and outstanding views, as well as doubling the amount and variety of meeting spaces, employees will have access to building amenities, including a tenant lounge, fitness center, structured parking and a large conference center.
“We looked at and toured many properties around the Plano and Frisco area, but none matched the Frisco Station property. The location is incredible and situates our team at the center of a vibrant and growing area,” said Kats Murakami, President and CEO of Brierley+Partners. “With the proximity to The Star, restaurants, hotels, housing, entertainment and a park, Frisco Station was a no brainer. Our new location and this particular office will strengthen our recruitment efforts as the labor market is becoming increasingly competitive.”
As an organization centered around engagement and collaboration, Brierley+Partners gave employees the opportunity to provide feedback through company-wide surveys on preferred amenities, location and building features. On Friday, September 21, Brierley hosted a reception for employees to preview the new office space, learn about the high-quality, on-site amenities available and enjoy the unobstructed views of downtown Dallas, Las Colinas, Lake Lewisville and Denton on the horizon.
“The Offices One at Frisco Station continues to be a highly desirable destination for corporations who want to be located in one of the most innovative corridors in the nation,” said Geoff Meyer, executive vice president of development for VanTrust Real Estate, developer of The Offices at Frisco Station. “The on-site emerging, automated transportation network coupled with recently announced 5G Evolution wireless technology will benefit Brierley+Partners by connecting them physically and digitally to the amenity-rich environment we are creating.”
Brierley and its employees will benefit from the AT&T 5G Evolution wireless technology that is being integrated across Frisco Station’s parks, residential options, hospitality units and corporate spaces. Featuring some of the latest integrated connectivity from AT&T, Frisco Station is one of the first developments in the nation being built from the ground up with wireless stealth micro cells, ultra-fast internet powered by AT&T FiberSM and robust Wi-Fi throughout all common areas. Through this technology, building residents will have access to the ultimate wireless experience throughout The Offices One at Frisco Station, across the 32 acres of trails and park spaces, residential and hospitality units.
Adjacent to the Dallas Cowboys’ world headquarters, The Offices One at Frisco Station is within walking distance to more than 50 retail, restaurant and entertainment options between The Hub at Frisco Station, the development’s planned entertainment district, and The Star. More than 2,400 urban living units will also be available for residents who want to be in close proximity to Frisco Station’s employment opportunities and regional employers, along with dining, entertainment and wellness amenities.
“Brierley is a venerable North Texas company that was seeking a vibrant, mixed-use environment to support its future growth, and Frisco Station provides this environment very well for them,” said Craig Wilson, executive managing director of Cushman & Wakefield.
Randy Cooper, Craig Wilson, Kate Sudol and Wills Bauer of Cushman & Wakefield represented Brierley, and Johnny Johnson, Chris Taylor and Clint Madison of Cushman & Wakefield represented VanTrust in the transaction.
