The Mansfield City Council approved a grant for a new office building and began considering a couple of bond proposals for May’s election.

The two bonds will look familiar to Mansfield voters since they were on the ballot in May 2022, but were defeated. During Monday’s work session, council members discussed the possibility of asking voters to approve a veterans’ memorial and a Miracle League ball field for baseball players with special needs. City staff told the council that they believed both projects could be built without raising property taxes.

The council also approved an Mansfield Economic Development Corp. infrastructure grant for a five-story office building on 17 acres at the northeast corner of the US 287 and Heritage Parkway intersection. The grant, which is not to exceed $7.5 million, will go to developer Admiral Legacy Investments, LLC, for the facility, which will include approximately 220,000 square feet of office space, 20,000 square feet of retail, restaurant or professional office space, and a minimum of 280 corporate residences with parks, green area, education, innovation, and corporate headquarters uses.
