New Life for a Texas Office Building

550 Bailey Building
Fort Worth, Texas, USA

This project repositioned the 25-year-old former Bombay Co. Headquarters Building in Fort Worth’s Cultural District.

HOK’s client sought to reposition a seven-story, 122,000 square-foot building and to upgrade it from Class B to Class A in order to attract new tenants.

HOK’s design renewed the building’s site, lobby and public spaces.

The existing single-level, dark, north-facing entry lobby had poor visibility and lacked a sense of arrival. The design solution demolished a portion of the second floor to provide a double-height lobby space and to capture existing exterior space into the new lobby. This change enabled the lobby to extend beyond the existing building face with a new three-story glass facade and metal canopy, improving visibility from the street.
