Harwood International director of leasing Jihane Boury says Spirit Realty moved to Dallas from Scottsdale, AZ. Harwood, spanning 18 city blocks, is facing unbelievable growth, partially thanks to a walk score of 92, with attractions like the Katy Trail, The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum, Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens, The Grove at Harwood and the Dallas Arts District all in walking distance.

Jihane says now that Harwood is over 95% leased, she will focus on new build-to-suit opportunities throughout the district. Jihane negotiated the lease with CBRE's Peery Wood, Chris Sido and Brad Anderson.
