DALLAS | Hall Arts Center | 100m+ | 300ft+ | 30 fl | 18 fl | U/C

This is the latest iteration of a tower proposed for that site since the 1980s. Construction is contingent on the developer getting easements for signage.
Now slated to be a 3 tower development with an 18 story office tower, a 30 story residential tower and what may be a 40-60 story mixed-use tower later on.

After 25 Years, Craig Hall May Build in Arts District.
But First, He Needs Lots of Big Signs.


By Robert Wilonsky Fri., Oct. 21 2011 at 4:16 PM



​You remember Craig Hall, right? He's the developer who's been talking since forever about building something fancy in the Arts District -- like, say, that stalled-out tower where presently there sits a parking garage on Ross. Only, remember, he and the city got sideways over unpaid lease monies and TIF-for-tats, which didn't do anything to speed up construction on a tower that's been talked about since ... 1986. So, yeah. If you don't remember, that's fine too. It's been a while.

But, he's back -- before the city council, matter of fact, this coming Wednesday, when the council will vote on letting him create a new subdistrict within the Arts District Special Provision Sign District. Why the need? Because Hall wants permission to put four signs on the building he now says he's going to build across from the Meyerson -- the Hall Arts Center, which, as you'll note, is a shadow of a shadow of the original proposal. They're all so-called "tenant identity signs," one of which would be nine feet tall by 50 feet long, another of which could be as large as nine feet tall by 60 feet long.

City staff hates the idea of giving Hall dispensation, which is why it suggested the City Plan Commission deny the request: "Staff is concerned with treating a single block within the Art's District differently from the Arts District as a whole and therefore cannot support the applicant's request." But the CPC voted to OK the request, which Hall has said he needs in order to secure tenants in order to build the building. But some at City Hall are concerned that the way the application reads now, he could probably put the signs on the parking garage; there is no language in the application that says they have to go on the so-called Hall Arts Center.

KMPG Signs Onto Hall Arts Center

Quote:
The race to build the next office tower in central Dallas is about to be out of the starting gate.

Accounting firm KPMG has finally decided where it will locate its downtown office, real estate brokers who are tracking the deal say. After looking at options in Uptown, property execs familiar with the transaction say that KPMG has decided that developer Craig Hall’s new building in the Arts District is the best option.

KPMG has been scouting for new digs since its namesake tower on Harwood Street went into foreclosure last year. The accounting firm wanted to keep its operations in the downtown area and considered several new buildings in the works. KPMG was also interested in Crescent Real Estate’s office and retail tower planned on McKinney Avenue.

Brokers say that Hall Financial’s planned project on Flora Street got the edge because of its location across from the Meyerson Symphony Center and its shorter construction time. The 16-story, 454,000-square-foot office project is being built on top of an existing underground parking garage.

Hall Financial took out a building permit for the development late last year. The building would open its doors in 2015.

Groundbreaking set for next week in Dallas’ Arts District



Quote:
After years of planning and a flurry of leasing, Hall Financial is set to begin construction next week on its Arts District office tower.

The 16-story, 454,000-square-foot office project will be built between Ross Avenue and Flora Street, across from the Meyerson Symphony Center.

Accounting firm KPMG and Jackson Walker, the Dallas law firm, have already spoken for most of the space in the glass and metal high-rise.

The office building will take more than a year to construct and is the first phase of a project that includes a larger residential building

With Jackson Walker deal, Hall’s Arts District office tower is 60 percent leased



Quote:
Legacy Dallas lawfirm Jackson Walker LP will be renting just over 100,000 square feet of space in a new office tower going up in downtown Dallas.

Jackson Walker will join accounting firm KPMG and UMB Bank as lead tenants in the 18-story, 500,000-square-foot high-rise that is being built by Hall Financial Group. Hall – a Frisco-based real estate and investment firm – will also move its headquarters to the project. Work has already begun on the tower, which will be called KPMG Plaza.

“We actually started construction this past Monday,” developer Craig Hall said Wednesday at an event kicking off the development. “We expect to complete the first building by March 31 of 2015. “We will have some tenants moving in very shortly after that.”

KPMG Plaza is the first phase of the 3-building Hall Arts complex at Ross Avenue and Leonard Street. A 30-story condo tower and another large office high-rise are also planned. “Ultimately there will be around three quarters of a billion dollars of construction when we are done,” Hall said.

The next tower in Hall Financial’s development is already in the works, and will likely contain a combination of condominiums and hotel rooms. “We are talking to some hotel partners that would own and operate the building – that’s what we are after,” Hall said. “If we find the right hotel partner that’s what we are doing.”

Hall has been working on the project since 1995 when he bought the strategically located downtown development site for $10.5 million.

It may look like it but there are no renders here. Everything is real.
