A boutique office building at the corner of Fairmount and Knight streets in Dallas is adding fuel to the Maple District’s revitalization efforts.

The building’s third floor is now fully occupied.
The asset has four floors of office and a fifth-floor rooftop terrace.

Coworking firm Spaces is dramatically expanding its Dallas-Fort Worth footprint with plans to add four locations totaling 173K SF by the end of this year.

The 42K SF Stemmons Center alongside Interstate 35 in Dallas traded hands and will be extensively renovated.
Dallas-based real estate investment and development firm CanTex Capital acquired the building and plans to improve the exterior of the property while also creating more showroom space in the retail area.
