DALLAS | Perot Tower | 200m+ | 50 fl | Pro

Dallas businessman and developer Ross Perot Jr. has completed the purchase of a key downtown Dallas property. And he hints that the land may be used for a new landmark skyscraper.

Perot Cos. said Wednesday that it has acquired the 1.75-acre southeast corner of Woodall Rodgers Freeway and Field Street. The prime property – which has been under contract for several months -- at the northwest entry to downtown is now occupied by a Bank of America drive-through location. It’s just across the freeway from the Perot Museum of Nature and Science.

The new owner will continue to lease the hot corner to the bank. But Perot envisions grand plans for a future development.“We are excited about this property in what we see as one of the last iconic sites in Dallas,” Perot said in a statement. “We see tremendous potential in this site and envision it as a gateway to downtown and the world class neighborhoods at its doorstep. “A future building has the potential to impact the Dallas skyline for generations to come.”

Perot’s Hillwood company said the zoning on the land allows construction of a more than 1.5 million-square-foot skyscraper with no height restrictions.

Back in the 1980s, another developer proposed building a 100-story office tower on the block just across the street. Bank of America sold the property. Blake Purnell of CBRE Group brokered the sale with Phil Smith of Philip S. Smith and Co. The just purchased development site is just blocks away from the Victory Park development which Hillwood created.

It’s one of two bank properties along Woodall Rodgers that have been for sale this year. The 1.5-acre Chase drive though at Woodall Rodgers and Pearl Street -- located right at the entrance to the new Klyde Warren Park – is also on the market.

HOK is the architectural firm working on the project. So you know something good is happening. Hopefully we get a real supertall. Just to upset the snobs in Houston.

Since there is no height limit at the site, I would assume that this project is going to be BIG!

With 76 floors, supertall is posible. But it's just speculation.

Anymore info on this? I swear I search almost everyday looking for something but I know right now its all about patience.

All I know is that HOK has been chosen as the developer and Ben Crawford from Houston is leading the design.

What happens next after they get a design? It has to be approved by the city and have anchor lease clients? I'm new to this process.

Im just gonna have to go to HOK and catch Ben Crawford in the elevator and ask him wassup. Hope I dont get arrested guys. HAHA!

I think it's gonna be awhile before we see the designs of this potential supertall. It took nearly a year to see the Cesar Pelli designed McKinney and Olive project in Uptown Dallas. I guess we just have to be patient....

Perot will tap top talent for downtown Dallas skyscraper project

http://bizbeatblog.dallasnews.com/20...-project.html/

Quote:
Zoning on the corner allows construction of a more than 1.5 million-square-foot skyscraper with no height restrictions.

So Perot has decided to think big with the property.

“We are going to have a competition to design a building and bring top architects from across the world,” he said. “We need to get these great architects in the city.”

“That site is totally tied to an anchor tenant,” he said

Does this mean he already has a tenant?
