Global design firm Stantec has completed Atelier, a 41-story residential building in the heart of the Dallas Arts District. Atelier’s modern architecture and interior design integrate arts and urban living as a nod to the performing and visual arts venues in the neighborhood. Developed by ZOM Living, one of the nation’s largest developers of multifamily housing, the mixed-use building is located on Pearl Street and Flora Street between the famed Nasher Sculpture Center and the Meyerson Symphony Center and nearby Klyde Warren Park. Stantec served as the architect and interior designer on the project. The building’s exterior consists of a series of collections of units each spanning five stories, referred to as “galleries,” that are repeated throughout and bridge the scale of the high-rise. The lower levels of the building employ the same gallery module and materials in a more pedestrian-focused environment. The galleries are lifted above the ground level, creating a lively retail and restaurant streetscape with a transparent glass base, drawing attention to the works of art inside. The materials chosen for Atelier are compatible with the contemporary stone and steel materials found in the district. They are purposely neutral in color and composed in a simple articulation. The grand lobby serves dual functions as an art gallery and reception space. The gallery consists of large rotating walls with specialty lighting above for curated art displays. The oversized reception desk is a combination of stone and black metal, which sits in front of large-format industrial tile and concrete columns and houses another grand-scale art piece. Level one, totaling 15,000 square feet, also includes generous retail space and additional amenities, such as a pet spa and smart package lockers. Atelier’s 11th-floor amenity deck houses a landscaped oasis with 360-degree views surrounding a resort-style infinity-edge pool flanked by custom wood-slat cabanas. Other amenities include indoor and outdoor lounge areas, a membership-quality fitness center, co-working space, a resident market, and private wine lockers. The outdoor club lounge is connected to the interior amenity spaces with floor to ceiling glass walls and sheer drapery that bring both softness and vibrancy to the floor and allow full views to the downtown arts district. In the business center, white oak paneling surrounds the space while custom lighting centers on an oversized harvest table with built-in power outlets. The residential tower, rising above the 11th floor, consists of 29 stories and houses the 364 residential units ranging from one-, two- and three-bedrooms, all with floor-to-ceiling windows and uniquely angled balconies that minimize direct sun into the residences and take full advantage of downtown views. Additionally, there are 10 penthouses and 53 lofts with expansive terraces on levels two to six with 11-foot ceilings on the first four floors and two-story lofts on the fifth floor. The contemporary unit design also offers three residential finishes that vary by floor, from which residents can choose. The loft units consist of a sophisticated, urban palette with concrete-look, luxury vinyl plank flooring, and gray quartz countertops with chrome fixtures. The tower units above mimic the amenity spaces with light wood flooring throughout with an option of white or dark grey custom kitchen cabinets. The units also have high-end Bosch appliances, built-in wine coolers, quartz countertops, modern black fixtures, large tile backsplash, and exposed concrete ceilings, providing the ideal background for creative furnishings and personal art collections. A 10-story above-grade parking garage includes 553 spaces and EV charging stations for residents plus 157 accessible public parking spaces are available in the below grade structure. PARK FAST has incorporated smart technologies in this facility to increase efficiency and convenience for those looking to experience the arts venues and parks in the neighborhood. The structure will also include illuminated installations in the public areas to enhance connections with the community.
Stream Realty Partners has been engaged to represent Willow Springs Diamond Club Building, LLC, in the leasing and marketing of The Plaza at Willow Springs, a three-story, 54,000-square-foot Class-A office development at 12600 Willow Springs Road in Fort Worth, Texas. Stream office brokers Cullen Donohue and Vic Meyer are spearheading the effort on behalf of the landlord.

With abundant surface parking and immediate access to U.S. Highway 287, The Plaza at Willow Springs provides accessibility to a large educated workforce.

In a hotly pursued leasing assignment, T2V Properties has selected Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services to lease the class-A Westridge Park, a speculative boutique office project in the Irving/Las Colinas submarket of Texas. Dallas-based Bradford was up against several competitors vying for the opportunity to lease the two-phase project on a five-acre tract at 1410 N. Westridge Circle in Las Colinas, Texas. Assuming leasing duties is the Bradford team of Richmond Collinsworth, first vice president, and Erik Blais and Jared Laake, both vice presidents. Phase I is a three-story office building, totaling 34,188 square feet, that delivered in December of 2019. Permits are in hand for an 88,100-square-foot second phase. Hoefer Wysocki of Dallas designed Phase I, which was constructed by Arch-Con Corp.’s Dallas team. Modus Design Studio is the architect for Phase II. Developer T2V Properties has yet to select the general contractor for Phase II. The Bradford team believes Westridge Park is well-suited for pandemic times amid a growing trend by tenants to vacate high-rises and move into smaller buildings, whether they’re downsizing or seeking better control of their environments. Also beneficial from a leasing perspective is the present-day exodus by companies leaving California for Texas. Adding to the project’s appeal is the large IT workforce in the immediate area and close proximity to two airports, the Dallas-Area Rapid Transit system and the Big D’s CBD. The Irving/Las Colinas submarket is the second-largest employment center in North Texas. It’s a longtime preferred market for Corporate America, home to the global headquarters of eight Fortune 500 and five Fortune 1000 companies plus 150 foreign-based corporations. Westridge Park was developed with a corporate campus in mind, but is easily adaptable to multi-tenant space. The 11,396-square-foot floor plates are divisible to 2,700 square feet. The project has above-standard ceiling heights, floor-to-ceiling windows, a second-floor balcony overlooking Las Colinas and infrastructure boasting a three-phase electrical system and fiber optic connectivity. Phase II will house shared amenity space like a fitness center, conference room and café.

Texas newcomer Volt Lighting has leased the 17,500-square-foot balance of a four-building project in Dallas’ Brookhollow Industrial Park for its fourth distribution center in the U.S. Volt Lighting’s Southwest Region distribution center has been set up in Mockingbird Place Building 3, 420 W. Mockingbird Lane, backfilling a spot with just one month of down time for the leasing team. Brock Wilson, senior vice president and managing partner of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services, represented the landlord while colleague Joe Santaularia, first vice president, handled the tenant side of the talks. “Had the space been ready to go, it wouldn’t have been vacant at all,” Wilson said. “This project historically is 93 percent to 100 percent leased because of its location and well-kept condition.” Wilson’s history with the 151,200-square-foot class B project, situated close to Interstate 35E, dates back six years and two owners. Its current owner is NWP TX TT LLC, an institutional investment group. The new lease returns the asset to 100 percent occupancy. “The Brookhollow submarket has been white hot for leasing,” Wilson said, crediting the expansions of the nearby Design and Medical districts with its popularity. Proximity to both districts is a boon for Mockingbird Place’s new tenant—a factory-direct outdoor lighting supplier for commercial and residential markets. Volt Lighting has leased 50 percent of Building 3, a rear-load warehouse with six over-size dock-high doors and one drive-in ramp. Volt Lighting is headquartered in Lutz, Florida. It has distribution centers in Nevada, Pennsylvania, its homeport and now Texas.
