Trammell Crow Company announces that construction has commenced on a Class-A, 259,947-square-foot build-to-suit for the General Services Administration in Irving, Texas. The 1-story building, which will house the US Citizenship and Immigration Services’ Texas Service Center, meets both the government’s security and energy-efficiency requirements and be completed in early 2020. The project, as with their FAA facility in Fort Worth, is a joint effort between TCC’s Dallas Fort-Worth and MidAtlantic offices.

“We are pleased to officially be underway on this important project for the US Government,” said Tom Finan, a Managing Director with TCC’s MidAtlantic Business Unit. “This groundbreaking milestone is the result of a tremendous amount of effort over the past year by our design and development team and the GSA and USCIS teams responsible for the facility. Our team’s vast experience in working with various branches of government throughout the country has enabled us to instill a sense of stability, security and functionality within the building design and deal structure.”
The highly-secure, environmentally friendly and efficient facility, situated at the northwest intersection of N. Belt Line Road and President George Bush Turnpike, will sit on approximately 27 acres on a 40-year ground lease with the DFW Airport.

“By consolidating several locations into one, new efficient building that better promotes employee collaboration, the USCIS will be able to continue it’s important government work,” said Scott Krikorian, Senior Managing Director of TCC’s Dallas-Fort Worth Business Unit. “Our partnership with the DFW Airport, Elm Tree Funds and the City of Irving has been instrumental in the success of this deal.”

Gensler is the project architect and Manhattan Construction Company is the general contractor. Additional team members include: Halff Associates (Civil), Thompson Ehle Company (MEP), Cardno (Structural), Thornton Tomasetti (Security), mycoskie+mcinnis+associates (Landscape) and CBRE (Property Management).

Construction financing is being provided by JP Morgan Chase Bank, N.A.
