Coming to The Farm in Allen

As Allen develops its last major commercial corridor, residents can look forward to several incoming entertainment and dining experiences.

The Farm is an economic development project within the city, and it represents the first major project on Allen’s 121 corridor to kick off and create a base of amenities for area residents and incoming businesses to enjoy.

Areas like West Lake Park, a future boardwalk featuring upscale restaurants; gaming center High Five; Chicken and Pickle and the expanding HUB development aim to provide a myriad of fun activities for families and residents.

“With all that happening, we've also kicked off the first office building there, which is called Farm Work 1, where we hope to bring in some corporate tenants with about 100,000 square-foot, three-story building near all the amenities,” said Dan Bowman, Allen Economic Development Corporation’s CEO. “That's what the office users are looking for — a place to dine, have entertainment, and all of that. We think that will be very successful as we fill that building with new tenants.”

High Five and Chicken and Pickle are supposed to be breaking ground this year and are slated to open in 2024.

“Going into the summer or early fall, you'll see shovels in the ground,” Bowman said.

The HUB at The Farm in Allen Opening

An open-air food hall in Allen with three restaurants, several bars and an ice cream shop opened Nov. 3, 2022.

The Hub is a Texas-sized spinoff of a beachy hangout on Scenic Highway 30A in Florida, near Seaside. The venue in Allen is three times the size of the Florida original, with a deeper focus on food and less on retail.

Its long green turf with squishy chairs in front of a stage seems just right for families with kids and dogs. To cater to teenagers eating with their parents, the company created an app so that adults can front-load money onto it and kids can order their own food by reciting their parents’ phone number.

The Hub was also designed with adults in mind, and bars with frozen drinks, canned beverages and local beers are only a few dozen feet away from any seat in the 35,000-square-foot venue.

FarmWORK One in Allen, TX

The northeastern Dallas suburb of Allen has been something of a hotspot for corporate office development and job growth over the past several years. One of the city’s newest office projects is FarmWORK One, a 102,000-square-foot building that is being constructed within The Farm at Allen, a 135-acre mixed-use destination by locally based firm JaRyCo Development.

The developer’s decision to include this building in Phase I, construction of which will begin this year, is a testament to the firm’s confidence in the leasing potential of boutique office product that is surrounded by ambulatory retail, restaurant and residential uses.

“The pandemic forced us to examine how we go about developing office buildings, what we put into the design and what needs to change,” says Bruce Heller, president of JaRyCo. “With The Farm, we sought to create a mixed-use development that was eco-friendly and sustainable and had a lot of open space — about 25 percent of our acreage is for open space and parks. That was pre-COVID, but even without the pandemic, it’s just a better way to deliver office product.”
