AmerisourceBergen Locates to Carrollton
Global healthcare company to build new corporate campus at the Offices of Austin Ranch
AmerisourceBergen Specialty Group today announced it has completed negotiations for a 300,000 square foot office lease in Carrollton. The corporate campus will be the largest built-to-suit office campus at the Offices of Austin Ranch and one of the largest employers in the City of Carrollton.
The property will serve as the international health care company's new regional headquarters.
“AmerisourceBergen is the essential partner for pharmaceutical manufacturers and providers; we continue to rapidly grow our capabilities to help our partners to improve patients’ lives,” said James Frary, EVP, President of AmerisourceBergen Specialty Group. “As our business grows so do the needs of our associate population. To that end, we are excited to continue our role as an active member of the greater Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex in a new Carrollton office that is custom built to support our talented and expanding workforce.”
The City of Carrollton serves as a dedicated partner to the corporate community, striving to achieve benefits for both the companies and the public. It offers local support for the advanced initiatives of corporations such as AmerisourceBergen that work to provide services and products to a global audience.
“We are excited to welcome a strong and innovative company like AmerisourceBergen to Carrollton,” said Mayor Matthew Marchant. “Our strong housing market, schools and amenities make our city an excellent choice for businesses to grow.”
Commercial real estate firm JLL represented AmerisourceBergen in the search for the new headquarters.
JLL South Central Region President Jeff Staubach, Managing Director Greg Biggs, Senior Vice President Torrey Littlejohn and Chase Monroe, Market Director for the Carolinas, negotiated the lease on behalf of AmerisourceBergen. Austin Ranch developer Billingsley Co. represented the landlord.
“JLL is thrilled in playing a role in bringing AmerisourceBergen Specialty Group to Carrollton,” said Staubach. “Austin Ranch provides them the opportunity to grow and strengthen their presence in North Texas, while enhancing the corporate culture and increasing the quality of their client services internationally. This is a tremendous opportunity for everyone involved.”
AmerisourceBergen joins Freddie Mac, Quest, Sanyo, Orthofix, Edward Don and many others officing at the 1,700-acre master-planned development.
“Every company’s future is driven by the quality of employees they can recruit and the environment they create to inspire breakthrough ideas and service,” said Billingsley Co. Senior Vice President Marijke Lantz. “At Billingsley Company, we are delivering all the ingredients to ensure our corporate clients succeed and grow. Austin Ranch is rich with these amenities. Location, hills, trails, lakes, indoor and outdoor restaurants all make this a casual, fun and inspiring environment.”
In Q2 2017, Billingsley Company will open a new eight-acre retail development near Amerisource’s new campus. The restaurant and entertainment site will further enrich the area and give office tenants and nearby residents great options for food and fun. The location is also adjacent to Nebraska Furniture Mart and Legacy West giving a vast array of dining options to their office tenants.
The popularity of Far North Dallas continues to make it one of the most attractive and active markets in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. According to JLL Research, the submarket has 7.3 million square feet of office space currently under construction and 1.7 million completed year to date.
