A new gymnastics/sports training facility is headed to Allen.
Alliance Cheer will be the newest tenant at Tech Center One, located along Greenville Avenue between Bethany Drive and Prestige Circle. Because the existing building was zoned for light industrial uses, the tenant needed a specific-use permit in order to operate.
Planning staff assessed parking needs before recommending approval of the project. Because most of Alliance Cheer’s activities will take place in the evenings and weekends, existing parking was deemed adequate.
The owners of Tech Center One hired an engineer to perform a private parking study; it found existing tenants would experience no negative impact on parking due to the presence of Alliance Cheer.
“There’s no tenant important enough to bring in and cause problems on a project,” said Bruce Heller, president of JayRyCo Development. “Our leases give us significant control over changing tenant operations if it’s disruptive to our other tenants [or] if it brings the property values of our projects down.”
Council members voted unanimously to approve the zoning change.
