Downtown Dallas Tower Redo Attracts New Lender

As Reported by The Dallas Morning News

Developers who are redoing one of Downtown Dallas' largest skyscrapers are getting more time from the city to completed the deal.

Drever Capital Management - which is redeveloping the 52-story former First National Bank tower - also told Dallas' economic development committee that they have a new lender in the project, Dallas-based Cienda Partners.

Drever is spending $430 million to convert the 1.5 million square-foot office high-rise into a combination of apartments, hotel rooms, and retail space.

The project - which has been in the works for several years - is the largest such redevelopment ever in Downtown Dallas.

Drever bought the 53-year-old landmark tower out of bankruptcy in 2016.

Work on the project slowed for several months earlier this year while the developer finalized financing for the deal.

The developer told the economic development committee the financing is set to close before the end of the month.






'Klyde Warren 2.0': Beloved Downtown Dallas Deck Park to Get $76 Million Expansion Years in the Making

As Reported by The Dallas Morning News

Here comes "Klyde Warren 2.0."

That's what Mayor Mike Rawlings calls the deck park's long-talked about expansion. The park's new president Kit Sawers says it "completes the park." And Jody Grant, the man who helped create this place — on a highway overpass, out of thin air — sees it as "an opportunity to do more, to do something good for Dallas."

The central feature of the planned 1.2-acre, $76 million expansion is a two-story, 16,000- to 20,000-square-foot pavilion planned for the blank space between North St. Paul and North Akard streets, in front of Hunt Consolidated headquarters. But the new development will also mean some added park space and parking.

"What this means to the citizens is, we're not going to stop with Klyde Warren Park as it is," Rawlings said in an interview this week. "We will continue to make it a living place that grows with our needs."
