    Dallas Business Journal: Balfour Beatty lands work on Dallas' big Park District project

    January 21, 2016


    Dallas-based Trammell Crow Co. and MetLife Inc. have selected Dallas-based Balfour Beatty Construction to build Park District, a 20-story office tower and a 34-story residential tower.
     
    The new development will be the first commercial development built fronting Klyde Warren Park and will connect downtown and Uptown Dallas.
     
    Park District will bring a total of 916,000 square feet of space to the city center, including 500,000 square feet of office space, about 253 apartments and 29,000 square feet of retail space to the 3-acre parcel at Pearl Street, Olive Street and Klyde Warren Park.
     
    PricewaterhouseCoopers recently decided to anchor the Class A tower for about 200,000 square feet on floors 12 to 19. The consulting firm will get top-of-building signage on the tower named PwC Tower at Park District.
     
    A CBRE team is also shopping the remainder of the tower to potential tenants.
     
    And Balfour Beatty will help bring Park District to fruition, said Pleas Mitchell, senior vice president of operations for the construction firm.
     
    "Park District is an exciting and strategic project for our North Texas office," Mitchell said in a statement.
     
    "We are committed to delivering a world-class structure that will be a true legacy now and for years to come for our clients and the City of Dallas," he added.
     
    Dallas-based HKS Inc. is the project architect. The Office of James Burnett is the landscape architect for the Park District's plaza.
     
    Construction on the PwC Tower at Park District is slated for completion in 2017.
