Argyle Council approves office building

A former church building in Argyle will soon become an office building.

The Argyle Town Council approved a proposed office building taking over what used to be a church in Argyle.

TTN Fleet Solutions wants to move into 202 Cook Street, which used to be the Alliance Christian Assembly of God and is directly across from the south side of Argyle High School’s campus. TTN is a U.S. and Canada 24/7 emergency roadside service and fleet maintenance for the motor carrier and insurance industry. It connects the person needing service to the company who can perform the right service.

TTN requested in May to add “Offices (Professional)” to the Community Facilities District permitted use chart in the Town Development Standards. Town Council considered during its May 23 meeting, and it approved an ordinance amending the Town of Argyle Town Development Standards regarding changes to the permitted use chart, to allow “Offices (Professional)” as a Specific Use Permit in the Community Facilities District.

At the Planning & Zoning Commission meeting on Aug. 1, a representative of the applicant said the total number of employees working at the location would be about 60, but it’s expected that much fewer than that would be working at the same time. The representative said the church was not able to divide the land to sell, and TTN plans to spruce up the building but it doesn’t plan to develop the land. The property is nearly 7 acres, most of which is heavily wooded.

The P&Z recommended approval, and during the Aug. 22 meeting, the Town Council voted to approve the specific use permit.
