(DALLAS) – Hines, the international real estate firm, announced today plans for a new 23-story office tower in Victory Park. The iconic tower will be located at 2371 Victory Avenue just north of Hines’ One Victory Park development.
The Class A office building will offer future tenants an unbeatable location with superior access to major highways, immediate proximity to the DART Light Rail at Victory Station, the popular Katy Trail, and great entertainment and housing options within the resurging Victory Park. The 470,000-square-foot building will have prominent visibility along Interstate-35 and include 15 levels of office space with panoramic views of Uptown, Downtown, American Airlines Center, Design District, Trinity River, and the impressive Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. Tenants can expect a strong amenity base featuring a 7,000-square-foot fitness center, a 6,000-square-foot conference center, on-site restaurant and café, and rooftop function terrace.
Construction on the building is expected to begin in 4Q2014 with a projected delivery date of 1Q2017. Cushman & Wakefield has been hired to direct leasing and marketing for the property.
Designed by Duda/Paine Architects, the stunning sloped crystalline structure will feature 29,000 square-foot, rectangular floor plates, 10-foot floor-to-ceiling glass and ample parking. The top of the building will slope up toward Victory Avenue and incorporate architectural lighting features. The lobby of the building will be featured through a glass wall along Victory Avenue with a setback entry facing south toward a plaza and garden space, as well as a generous drive for vehicular drop off.
Hines Southwest Regional CEO Mark Cover stated, “This project will be a true ‘next-generation’ office building, utilizing best practices we’ve learned from our previous developments in Houston, Dallas and around the world.”
Hines Managing Director, Heath Johnson, added, “We are excited about delivering the next landmark office tower in Victory Park and being part of the exciting retail transformation occurring there. The amenities offered by the district and within the building are unmatched.”
