This Week's Dallas-Fort Worth Deal Sheet
Cawley Partners is bringing luxury office with a focus on health and well-being into the heart of Dallas.
The firm announced plans to build a 150K SF, four-story office building near Love Field Airport and the Dallas Medical District.
The development at 2221 West Mockingbird Lane is designed to include modern air filtration systems and a series of natural settings, including a central courtyard that's accessible from inside the building.
The 5.5-acre development comes with enough space to build structured parking for future tenants. The location is accessible from Interstate 35-E and the Dallas North Tollway.
“I believe this area has so much potential for companies looking to grow in Dallas. You are right next to Love Field, and UT Southwestern and Parkland have almost $2.25B worth of projects going up in this area right now. I think we’re going to see this become a more desirable corporate location with new companies looking to move in,” Cawley Partners Chairman and CEO Bill Cawley said.
Dallas-based retail brokerage DuWest Realty announced the hiring of Giancarlo “GC” Carriero as vice president of retail brokerage.
Carriero will oversee leasing activity and look for new landlord and tenant clients. He previously was vice president of leasing within JLL's third-party national mall and open-air division.
