One McKinney Plaza

BOKA Powell

A Gaedeke Group renovation and addition to One Mckinney Plaza in Dallas, Texas. The Hamburg, Germany-based company determined that the existing 15-story tower office building, designed in the early 1980s, represented a style of architecture prevalent at that time using dark glass in the tower and travertine stone as accent elements around the street level lobby.  To create an elegant new ‘front door’ for the property which is closer to the street edge, providing visitors and tenants with a new sense of welcome. The space is energized with light by opening up the lobby to two levels of height and a large wall of glass utilizing an apparently seamless system to allow an unobstructed view to the inside. In addition, the opportunity existed to create an exciting new retail frontage on Mckinney Avenue. The new retail frontage extends to the street curb, creating a unified, pedestrian friendly environment. Landscaping, street furniture and lighting were selected to create a high quality experience and encourage patrons to interact and linger, both inside and outside the retail spaces. Del Frisco’s restaurant has become the anchor restaurant in the newly revitalized development.

Created designs for multiple theater locations.










Dr Pepper Star Center at Craig Ranch

BOKA Powell

The facility, complete with two NHL size ice rinks, will provide space for recreational league ice hockey and figure skating, as well as locker rooms for multiple teams and individuals. Unlike other centers, this facility will have party rooms at rink level to allow for events capable of both viewing and participating in the skate activities. The facility has rental and administrative space, as well as a Dallas Stars Pro-Shop to supply memorabilia and equipment for league play. There will also be a sports bar for all-around festivities after the game and/or club viewing Dallas Stars games on national television.





 Discovery Center

BOKA Powell

Responsible for the refurbishment of part of a 150,000 square foot warehouse space formerly occupied by Beal Aerospace for development of rockets, a retrofitted 25,000 square foot to create a new home for Sci-Tech Discovery Center, a hands-on science and math learning center for kids, a 100 seat Black Box Theater for the local Frisco Arts Group and the Frisco Art Gallery which occupies the main lobby space common to both tenants. To develop a true ‘community space,’ unique and different from the existing tenant that occupied the remainder of the building, the team created a front entry utilizing the ‘Frisco Red’ color and utilization of large format billboard type graphics that showcased the Public part of this building. The Theater is more sophisticated while the Sci-Tech space is very much about fun and color.

Charlotte Gateway

BOKA Powell

Large scale urban planning requires flexibility and vision, allowing for the evolution of functional market drivers. This urban plan includes two parcels of land reclaimed by city improvements in highway infrastructure.

Parcel One consists of two office towers that total one million square feet and a 300-key convention hotel. Parcel One is adjacent to the Charlotte Convention Center, which contains over 280,000 square foot of contiguous exhibit space. The location of this parcel is vital to the cities development, as it is the termination point and the gateway into downtown Charlotte. Parcel Two (adjacent to Parcel One) consists of two phased Office Towers that total one million square feet. This parcel is adjacent to the newly planned NASCAR Museum and office tower.

John Peter Smith Health Network Facilities Utilization Assessment and Plan

BOKA Powell

The plan evaluates and proposes a strategic vision for two major components of the JPS network; the main JPS hospital campus and its community health services located throughout Tarrant County.

The plan provides a foundation from which JPS can assess its main campus in terms of maximizing efficiency, utilization, and impact on the surrounding neighborhoods in a fiscally responsible manner. It addresses immediate needs and looks into JPS future to recommend a comprehensive strategy for utilizing facilities, maximizing operational capacities and organizing services across the network.

The strategic facilities utilization plan provides benchmarks that allow JPS to continually monitor its progress and reevaluate its priorities as appropriate. It provides a flexible pathway for growth, including identification of short term and long term priorities, and phased implementation.

Methodist Charlton Medical Center

BOKA Powell

A Strategic Facility Master Planning (FMP) Process for Methodist Dallas Medical Center and the result has been a vision-driven “Centennial Plan” for 2027. The Charlton Campus plan includes planning for the appropriate use and organization of increasingly disparate space within the existing facility, bed capacity expansion, improvement of campus circulation, way-finding, and future consolidation of outpatient services. The FMP targeted expansion of the Emergency Department and Support Services as key next steps. The plan includes proposed campus zoning for inpatient services, outpatient services and support components. The inpatient zoning plan includes reserving a location for a future bed tower; the outpatient zoning plan includes planning for the growth of new outpatient MOBs on land currently owned by Methodist Charlton. The project’s strategic process included operational benchmarking, department utilization modeling, analysis of space and facilities utilization and departmental adjacency needs, identification of key planning units, collaborative projections development, priorities and phasing recommendations

Red Urban

BOKA Powell

“Cities are a hallmark of human civilization.” How a city forms is a direct correlation to the unique culture of the region. Red Urban’s primary desire in design intent was to celebrate the fusion of their global company’s culture combined with that of Urban Dallas. Natural earth tones combined with Red Urban’s signature red, the color that represents love and affection, formed the color palette. Stained concrete, tiles with a rusted metal look, ebonized walnut and a draped creative area were the primary means for accomplishing the materiality of Dallas Loft. Red Urban was highly involved in the concept’s finalization, a distinctive graphic vinyl wall-covering from a photo taken by a local photographer of Downtown Dallas’s Lower South Side.

Forest Park Medical Center San Antonio

BOKA Powell

Inspired by five-star resorts, Forest Park Medical Center San Antonio is a physician-owned medical center and medical office building developed by the Neal Richards Group in San Antonio, Texas. The facilities have a hospitality-oriented focus to patient care and amenity offerings.  Rich woods, metals, stone and glass throughout patient rooms and public areas create an immersive luxury experience. The facility includes 54 beds — including 16 VIP patient suites — 12 operating rooms, two procedure rooms, state-of-the-art diagnostic imaging suites, and in-house pharmacy services. The four-story, 150,000-square-foot hospital reflects the South Texas vernacular, where the building is broken down into scalable pieces and has a more simplified structure as it rises to the sky. Interesting, locally-sourced materials bring the rugged, natural Hill Country palette into the site, rooting the building into the landscape while emphasizing a refined, sophisticated style. The upscale ambiance throughout extends to the large dining facility offering chef-prepared foods, a coffee bar, and outdoor spaces, including self-sustaining green roof systems. Patient rooms are designed with comfort, safety and privacy in mind. Plush banquettes adjacent to patient beds convert to queen-size beds for guests. Bathrooms are located directly behind the patient’s bed to reduce the risk of injury due to falls. Medical support technology, including patient monitoring devices and intravenous connection systems, are integrated into an attractive upholstered headboard and hidden when not in use. For additional privacy, VIP suites feature a separate room for family and guests equipped with a kitchenette, entertainment options and a sleeping area
