Billingsley Co. plans to start construction on the first phase of its 500-acre mixed-use development that sits in both Fairview and Allen, Texas. The developer is finalizing plans for Sloan Corners, with the first phase set to include office space and apartments.

Billingsley Co. is working with both Fairview and Allen to develop the massive project that combines a 240-acre site in Fairview and a 260-acre site across the highway in Allen. When fully completed, Sloan Corners is expected to be valued at $3 billion, with 10.6 million square feet of office space, 220,000 square feet of retail space and 6,000 apartments. The mixed-use development is split as 4.4 million square feet of office, 100,000 square feet of retail and 2,000 multifamily units in Fairview, and nearly 6.2 million square feet of office, 120,000 square feet of retail and 4,000 multifamily units in Allen.
