Shifting office preferences and employment demographics are reshaping suburban office trends. If you live, work or visit the areas along Frantz Road, Metro Place, Emerald Parkway and/or Blazer Parkway we invite you to provide input at a public meeting.
You are invited to review and comment on the recommendations developed following the first public meeting held on Aug. 31st, including market-based development scenarios and land use/zoning recommendations. If you didn’t have a chance to attend the first meeting, learn more here.
According to national studies, today’s employees expect to be able to walk to lunch, fitness centers and other services from their workplaces. The challenge for older office parks is to find the space for such uses, as well as the facilities that support walking, biking and transit connectivity. Parking ratios have also shifted as today’s businesses utilize a much higher employee per square foot ratio than in the past.
The Dublin Corporate Area Plan is intended to study Dublin’s legacy office parks – including Metro Place and the businesses along Frantz Road – to determine ways to improve these areas for businesses, employees and residents.
