The HUB at The Farm in Allen Opening
Category:

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.

The HUB at The Farm is 100% leased with 10 uniquely curated restaurant concepts, including:

  • A.P. Coffee & Bakery – an on-site coffee roaster with bakery items and house-made brioche doughnuts
  • Gallagher’s Steak and Seafood – an elevated American fare + steak and raw bar

“Our goal is to bring new and unique experiences to The Farm in Allen, and The HUB will do just that,” said Bruce Heller, president of JaRyCo. “The HUB will be a great amenity just a short walk away for everyone living and working at The Farm, as well as everyone living in the surrounding neighborhoods.”

Through The HUB’s strategic partnership with the City of Allen, the open-air venue will bring around 100 jobs to the Metroplex and will serve as a collective space for community events, meetings and celebrations at The Farm.

“The HUB will be a great entertainment destination not only for city residents, but also for companies seeking a project that offers their employees walkable options for lunch and dinner,” said Daniel Bowman, executive director of Allen Economic Development Corporation. “The HUB adds a vibrant gathering place in a first-class mixed-use center, and we are excited to begin development on The Farm in Allen.”

FarmWORK One in Allen, TX

Source: Rebusiness Online

Excerpt:

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.”
