Park District is a mixed-use project being developed in North Pearl Street of downtown Dallas, Texas, US. The project includes two towers including a 20-storey office building owned by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) and a 34-storey residential tower.
Construction of the Park District officially began in January 2016. The apartment tower is expected to move to the occupancy stage by the end of March 2018.
Trammell Crow Company (TCC) and Met Life are co-developing the mixed-use project.
The Park District is being developed on a three-acre site in in North Pearl Street and will be surrounded by Pearl Street, Olive Street and the Klyde Warren Park. It will also share the neighbourhood with the Arts District and Uptown Dallas.
The project can be directly accessed through I-35, I-45, US-75, Dallas North Tollway, and I-30 highways. It also lies in close proximity to the McKinney Avenue Trolley and DART rail.
The mixed-use project will cover an area of 916,000ft², with the PwC office tower offering 500,000ft² of Class A office space and 7,000ft² of retail space at the ground level. PwC will be the main tenant of the building and occupy approximately 200,000ft² on eight floors (12 to 19).
Legal firm Winston & Strawn entered a long-term agreement for leasing the eighth and ninth floors (56,000ft² approximately) of the office building. The firm will start occupying the tower in the second quarter of 2018.
The office building will comprise an executive lounge, a fitness centre, and collaborative workspaces, in addition to three restaurants and a banking facility.
The residential tower of the mixed-use development will feature 228 luxury apartments and offer 24-hour concierge services to residents. The residences include one, two and three-bedroom luxury units ranging from 782ft² to 3,234ft² in size.
The apartments will feature 10ft to 13ft-high ceilings and high-end finishes such as European custom cabinetry with soft-close doors and drawers and quartz countertops. All the rooms will have engineered wood floors, while bedrooms will feature luxury carpets. Other features will include walk-in closet space, bigger private balconies, Bosch and Thermador appliances, as well as full-size washers and dryers.
The residential tower will also include a green roof, a business centre, a spa and a 7,000ft² fitness centre with locker rooms, yoga rooms and showers. An amenity deck is also part of the tower and will feature a resort-style pool, lounge area with seating and grilling stations, and cabanas.
The tower will also include 13,396ft² of retail space featuring 20in floor-to-floor glass on two levels, which will offer views of the Klyde Warren Park from the second level.
The project will create a connection to the Klyde Warren Park through wide sidewalks, park-like landscaping features, and a walkable plaza as the main entrance.
The office and residential towers will be inter-connected by the plaza located at the ground level. Adequate space will be provided for seating, dining courts and water features.
Parking for vehicles of the Park District development will be available at a four-storey underground parking garage.
PwC Tower will have three parking spaces per 1,000ft² of office space underneath the office building, while one parking space per bedroom will be allotted in the apartment tower.
The garage can be reached from both Pearl Street and Olive Street.
HKS is the project architect, while Balfour Beatty was awarded the general construction contract and is responsible for providing construction services.
TCC subsidiary High Street Residential is developing the retail space.
The plaza interconnecting the two towers will be designed by the Office of James Burnett, a landscape architecture firm.
