“We want to be everybody’s front yard.”
.…on boosting the amenities at her company’s Cypress Waters development, via The Dallas Morning News.
The 1,000-acre Cypress Waters development built around North Lake in far northwest Dallas is already packed with amenities, from a free lunch shuttle to on-site fitness centers to outdoor ping-pong tables. There are also free yoga and boot camp classes plus restaurants and retail at The Sound that jut right out over the lake.
But wait—there’s more, Billingsley promises. “We’re becoming a fun destination,” she told the Dallas Morning News’ Steve Brown. “We’re going to start construction this summer on four new restaurants that are in a speculative building we’re actively leasing. At The Sound, we’ll go from seven to 11 restaurants. That just brings more energy. We want people to come here for their parties and events.”
Billingsley Co. recently added a 9-hole putting green at the mixed-use development, and is adding more features even as it builds more office buildings to go with its first high-rise, a 10-story office building that overlooks the lake from Olympus Boulevard.
That news should go down well with the companies that headquarter or office at Cypress Waters, including At Home, Brinker International, CoreLogic, Mr. Cooper, Nokia, 7-Eleven, Signet Jewelers, Smoothie King, and Verily.
A hotel may soon join the party as well. “We are now talking to some hotel groups about coming into The Sound and putting a boutique hotel there,” Billingsley told the DMN. You can read the full story here.
