envisioning a place

where life and work intertwine.

Alpha West sits on a 14-acre site in Farmers Branch, Texas. This property was once occupied by several home furnishing retailers. Before becoming known as a retail stop, it was a homestead with most of the surrounding areas developed as low-rise offices and industrial buildings.

Alpha West

Farmers Branch, TX

Client: BridgeView Real Estate

Size: 14 Acres

Together with our team at O’Brien, Bridgeview Real Estate is transforming the site into an area where life and work intertwine. The environment is designed to foster a community of social living in the middle of a thriving working area, creating a space for both work and play. Where home furnishing retailers used to sit, new residential spaces, office spots, hotels, and restaurants will soon surround a plaza, which is to become the heart and soul of the Alpha West development.

As the central point of Alpha West, the plaza is designed to encourage everyone to gather together, whether enjoying one of the many restaurants, grabbing a coffee or shopping. Ample green space, sidewalks and office courtyards will encourage time outdoors with residents, guests, and employees.

Office spaces will have glass-paned buildings that will allow sunlight to shine in and invite teams to take a break to engage in the busy goings-on of the community and even the horizon beyond.
