DALLAS — While COVID-19 has delayed the start of a number of planned office projects in Dallas's urban core, most of them that had already broken ground before March are continuing on, including The Link at Uptown.

The nearly 300,000-square-foot office tower at 2601 Olive Street has already reached its 14th floor on the way to 25 floors, and is getting taller by the week. Being developed by Dallas-based Kaizen Development Partners, the project is still on track to deliver by the end of 2021. 

The company has also been busy elsewhere. 

In Allen, Kaizen recently delivered the 200,000-square-foot One Bethany West office building. In August, the company announced its first office development in neighboring McKinney, which would bring 200,000 square feet of speculative space to the market.

While questions are still abound about how much space office users will need when they eventually return to the office, one thing in particular is keeping Derrick Evers, managing partner and CEO of Kaizen Development Partners, optimistic for the future.

During a recent interview with the Business Journal, Evers spoke about office development in the northern suburbs of Dallas, shared how his business has changed since March and gave an update on the company's largest planned project, the $1 billion Field Street District in downtown Dallas.
