President and Owner
With high-profile projects such as Triune, Edwards Ranch, and Viridian on his resume, Nolan Bradshaw’s experience is equal parts familiar and distinguished. Nolan and his North Texas–based team have worked on a host of projects across the nation ranging from stand-alone restaurants to office parks spanning thousands of acres. The capability to work in this range speaks to the depth of Nolan’s knowledge when it comes to developing commercial architecture space and reveals why he is a successful and award-winning architect.
Whether it is a 10,000-acre mixed-used development or a 65,000-square-foot office park, masterminding massive projects takes having a grand vision plus an eye for the small details—and Nolan has both. He specializes in the master planning, design, construction and real-estate finance of community, mixed-use, office, multi-family, institutional, retail, and industrial projects.
Nolan’s dedication to his clients and crafting attractive, practical solutions results in projects causing a neighborhood’s value to flourish. He is committed to improving the built environment through urban development and loves breathing life back into ghost-town historical districts, creating spaces where communities can thrive once again.
Nolan’s commitment to making the world a better, more harmonious place doesn’t end at the office. The Fort Worth City Manager appointed him to the Development Advisory Board, where he aids City staff on municipal development challenges. Nolan also serves his city as Chairman of the Governmental Affairs Committee with AIA Fort Worth as well as participating in the Real Estate Council of Greater Fort Worth’s Committee for Public Affairs. In addition, he joined the Texas Society of Architects’ Government Affairs Steering Committee (GAScom), a group that sets the Society’s state legislative agenda. He shares his time with the All Saints Alumni Association and the Texas Tech Alumni Association and finds extra joy through volunteering for various programs with his faith community, Christ Chapel Bible Church of Forth Worth.
“Leave preconceived notions in the past and approach each project with a fresh perspective—we are a change in paradigms. Cornerstone does not just construct mixed-use developments, we build lifestyle centers.”
Director of Architecture
With clients declaring that their dreams had been turned into reality, it’s no wonder that people trust Jessica Pipkin with their landmark projects. She is known for her striking modern design savvy, excellent project management, and keen commercial investment budgeting proficiency. Her design skills are matched only by her dedication to the client experience, with project owners repeatedly turning to Jessica because she values people and communication above all. The result of this blended expertise is a bevy of beautiful commercial buildings—and clients who remained frustration-free during the development process.

She embraces the variety of projects she is entrusted with and appreciates each challenge. Design conundrums are her specialty, and she always jumps at the opportunity to learn something new.
In 2017, Jessica’s commitment and influence were highlighted when she was honored as one of Fort Worth Business Press’ Forty Under Forty. Dedicated to her ongoing education, Jessica is a member of the Texas Society of Architects as well as the American Institute of Architects, where she is an active part of the Fort Worth Chapter. She gives back to the community through the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo’s Ladies on the Lamb, Aledo AdvoCats, and Brock Aledo United Methodist Church.
