Park District is a mixed-use project located on North Pearl Street, downtown Dallas, Texas, US. The project covers 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 topped out in October 2017 and was opened for residents in May 2018.
Trammell Crow Company (TCC) and Met Life co-developed the mixed-use project.
Park District location
The Park District was developed on a three-acre site in North Pearl Street and is surrounded by Pearl Street, Olive Street, and the Klyde Warren Park. It also shares the neighbourhood with the Arts District and Uptown Dallas.
The project can be directly accessed through the 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.
Park District design details
The mixed-use project covers an area of 916,000ft² (85,099m²), with the PwC office tower offering 500,000ft² (46,451m²) of Class A office space and 7,000ft² (650m²) of retail space at ground level.
The design solution focused on creating private and semi-private open green spaces with views of the Klyde Warren Park.
The office building comprises an executive lounge, a fitness centre, conference facilities, and collaborative workspaces, in addition to three restaurants and a banking facility.
Most of the parking is located underground, to support the integration of the two towers into the neighbourhood.

Public spaces at Park District

Parking for vehicles of the Park District development is available at a four-storey underground parking garage.
PwC Tower has three parking spaces per 1,000ft² (92.9m²) of office space underneath the office building while one parking space per bedroom has been allotted in the apartment tower.
The garage can be reached from both Pearl Street and Olive Street.

TCC subsidiary High Street Residential developed the retail space.
The plaza interconnecting the two towers was designed by the Office of James Burnett, a landscape architecture firm.
