HOK to Redesign Dallas’s Iconic Trammell Crow Center
The redevelopment of the 1.2-million-sq.-ft. office tower will be its first major renovation and include significant enhancements to the building’s interior lobby, lower exterior and plaza.
Property owner J.P. Morgan Asset Management and commercial real estate firm Stream Realty Partners have selected HOK to redesign one of downtown Dallas’s largest office buildings. The renovation of the Trammel Crow Center will begin this month with completion scheduled for fall of 2018.
Key to HOK’s redesign of the 32-year-old tower is a new 50-by-80-foot glass and metal façade below the third floor that will extend out to Ross Avenue and pour light into the expansive lobby. The Flora Street entry will also be converted into a glass entry, and the ground floor of the Olive and Harwood Street corners will extend toward Ross Avenue to create additional restaurant space.
“It has been a fantastic opportunity to re-imagine one of the most significant office towers in Dallas,” said Ben Crawford, design principal for HOK’s Dallas practice. “Our goal has been to create a bold, urban façade that establishes connections between our new interiors and the vitality of downtown. The integration of site activation, retail uses, lobby reorganization and upgraded amenities will make the property a benchmark for the next phase of growth within our central business district.”
The HOK redesign will increase the building’s on-site amenities to include a new 3,000-square-foot tenant lounge, an expanded 9,000-square-foot athletic club and a 9,000-square-foot conference center located on the second floor to create an inspiring, energetic work environment.
“With this historic investment, Trammell Crow Center will remain a vibrant and modern icon that inspires generations to come,” added Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings.
Stream and J.P. Morgan are simultaneously creating a 2.66-acre mixed-use development directly to the south of Trammell Crow Center. Together, the two projects—the tower redesign and new mixed-use development—will bring $135 million in new investment to downtown Dallas.
“The design of both projects is the result of nearly two years of planning, and I could not be more excited about what the redevelopment will mean for Trammell Crow Center’s future,” said Jerry Mays, senior vice president of development and construction at Stream.
