Independent Financial HQ { 15 images } Created 7 Jun 2021

SmithGroup designed the new corporate headquarters for Independent Financial in the northern Dallas suburb of McKinney, Texas. The six-story, 165,000-sf, Class A office building can host more than 400 employees previously dispersed across the region.

The ground floor’s lobby and reception area incorporates Australian sandstone into a soaring feature wall. Open bench-style workstations are located along the floor-to-ceiling glass-enclosed perimeter, with collaboration zones, lounge areas, and terraces occupying the uniquely angular spaces at the terminus of the upper floors. Occupants on the third, fourth and fifth stories have balconies to enjoy a break and reconnect with nature.

The LEED certificated facility was delivered in partnership with KDC, a national real estate development and investment company; and Avison Young, a full-service commercial real estate firm. Rogers-O’Brien Construction served as general contractor.
