AmerisourceBergen Named Finalist for Best Real Estate Deal Award
The City of Carrollton is pleased to announce the AmeriscourceBergen Specialty Group (ABSG) development project as a finalist in the Suburban Office Lease and Headquarters/Campus award categories for the Dallas Business Journal’s Best Real Estate Deals of 2016. These awards highlight the stakeholders and dealmakers that brought about 2016’s biggest transactions and projects in the DFW Metroplex.
Since the spring of 2016, the City has been assisting ABSG, number 12 on the Global Fortune 500 and the second largest distributor of pharmaceuticals in the U.S, in its search for a new regional headquarters facility. The company’s desire to consolidate operations and move into a central location led to the Austin Ranch development community in Carrollton. After the completion of the two-phase construction process, this deal is expected to provide the City a 13-year total net benefit of $4.8 million. This project will also provide sizable benefits to Denton County, Lewisville Independent School District, DART, hotel occupancy taxes, and utility revenues.
“We are honored that the Dallas Business Journal has named AmerisourceBergen’s new office campus as a finalist for the Best Real Estate Deals,” said Carrollton Economic Development Manager Andrea Roy. “We recognize that this is an extremely competitive category and are pleased that the judges have taken note of the extensive collaboration and unique design that will make this a signature project for our community.”
