One Victory Park
Haynes and Boone's new digs: the 20-story One Victory Park in the $3 billion Victory development.

Hear Rick's take at Bisnow's Dallas-Fort Worth State of the Market  this Thursday. He'll be joined by Duke Realty EVP Jeff Turner, Granite Properties prez Michael Dardick, Behringer Harvard prez Robert Aisner, and more. Sign up today!
