Granite Properties, the developer of a 160,000 square-foot office building near Town Square, has been given permission from the adjacent Southlake Hilton to mount a time-lapse camera on the hotel to capture the progress of the construction project.
The web link (http://oxblue.com/open/ridgemont/graniteplace) provides up-to-date video images of construction at the site and will remain active until the building is complete. Ridgemont Commercial Construction is working with the OxBlue Corporation to manage the camera.
The construction site is just south of SH 114 (which is seen to the top right of the photo) and to the east of the Southlake DPS Headquarters. Southlake resident David Cunningham, who is also Director of Development and Construction of Granite Properties, said that the time lapse video will be an interesting way to track a year’s worth of hustle and bustle.
“A great deal of work will be taking place at the site,” Cunningham said. “This will be a fun way for residents to click the link to observe how a building is constructed over a whole year’s time.” Cunningham also said that individual photos of each day would be viewable by clicking on a specific calendar date.
Southlake Mayor Laura Hill said, “The Granite building is a tremendous project for the City. It really is beginning the transformation of the SH 114 corridor into an upscale office environment. The employees in this building will greatly support our Town Square retailers and restaurants on a daily basis.”
According to Southlake Economic Development and Tourism Director Shannon Hamons, the completed building is expected to bring several companies and more than 400 jobs to the community. He also stated that the traffic impact will be minimal since entry and exit from the garage will be from the adjacent service road and not through the Town Square area.
Granite’s Class-A office building and parking deck are expected to be completed in December 2016.
