The new building will have enough space to eventually house 450 workers, but Computer-Rx plans to lease out the ground floor of the building while it continues to grow, Nolen said.
Computer-RX hopes to break ground on the building in the first part of 2014 — the timing depends on the relocation of a drainage pond on part of the property.
Developer Jason Fritt wants to bring an urban feel to Moore with his vision for The Pipeline, with mixed-use buildings and loft-style apartments.
The pond and Computer-Rx building will be a focal point of the development, he said.
Preliminary plans for The Pipeline include on-street parking — the first of its kind in suburban Moore. The plans also call for two- and three-story office buildings and 14 units of housing that could accommodate small retailers on the ground floor.
Fritts believes Moore is ready for a new kind of urban-style development — on a small scale.
“We're confident that the location is good for this,” Fritts said. “While it might not be millions of square feet of development or even hundreds of thousands of square feet, we think we can do it in a small footprint and make the economics work.”
