AmeriscourceBergen Finalist for Two Real Estate Awards
The City of Carrollton is pleased to announce the AmeriscourceBergen Specialty Group (ABSG) development project as a finalist for both the Suburban Office Lease award category for the Dallas Business Journal’s Best Real Estate Deals of 2016 and the Best Office Lease for D CEO's 2017 Commerical Real Estate Awards. These awards highlight the stakeholders and dealmakers that brought about 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 AmerisourceBergen’s new office campus has been named a finalist for both of these prestigious Real Estate Awards,” said Carrollton Economic Development Manager Andrea Roy. “We recognize that these are extremely competitive categories 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.”
