Let me run a little arithmetic by you. Do you know how much Class A office space can be produced for $70 million? You can build it for about $300/ square foot. Therefore, $70 million would produce about 233,333 square feet of Class A office space. That is 5.357 acres of office space in the building. (All on 58 acres, not 1,000 acres.)
Now, tell me quick how much proof you have seen that there is demand for even 5,000 feet of Class A office space in Rowlett.......let along 5 acres of office space floor space.........and we still have another 1,000 acres of land area, or so, just waiting to be developed......or that's what staff and P&Z tells us.
Remember, this is just one project.
Oh......want to see something beautiful? Read the packet for tomorrow night's City Council meeting......say item 8A forward. It is the most beautiful example of gobblygook I have ever seen. Who said we don't have talent?
