NEW TOWN HALL, BOY SCOUT HQ COMING TO VILLAGE AT FAIRVIEW
FAIRVIEW, TEXAS — Construction is set to begin for the new Fairview Town Hall for the city of Fairview. The project, consisting of a 24,000-square-foot facility, will be located on 5 acres within The Village at Fairview, one component of Dallas-based MGHerring Group’s mixed-use project located at U.S. Highway 75 and Stacy Road. The new town hall will house Fairview’s operations department, as well as the new police station. The current town hall, located at 500 S. Highway 5, will remain in use as a fire station and public works department. Construction will begin in May, with completion scheduled for spring 2010. The project is being designed by Garland, Texas-based Ron Hobbs Architects.
In addition, MGHerring Group has donated a 1.4-acre land parcel within The Village Fairview for the construction of the new Collin County headquarters of the Circle Ten Council of the Boy Scouts of America. The two-story, 13,240-square-foot building will include a Scout Shop retail store, meeting rooms and office space. Completion of the project is scheduled for early 2010 and will coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Boy Scouts of America.
The Village at Fairview is being developed concurrently with The Village at Allen by MGHerring Group. Upon completion, the two projects will total 3 million square feet of mixed-use space. The 1 million-square-foot retail component of The Village at Fairview opened in October 2008.
