Exchange Parkway is a single-story retail and restaurant building designed to elevate the dining and coffee experience. This project is the first ground-up building birthed from a Houston developer and real estate company looking to expand into the North Texas market. Wanting to create a destination for the community instead of a transient retail location, the company chose Cornerstone Projects Group to translate their vision into the real world.
Though sizeable, the project site presented a challenge when it came to its steep elevation and dealing with an existing easement. Cornerstone had to balance the client’s desired square footage and drive-thru footprint with the City of Allen’s business parking requirements for restaurant buildings.
Cornerstone designed this structure with clean, unfussy lines, abundant storefront windows, and attractive timber accents. Current tenants include Smoothie King, Sips, and Sunnyside Café. The Sips space features drive-thru access for customers on the go while Smoothie King and Sunnyside Café offer ample parking.
