The ever-expanding Harwood District juxtaposed between downtown and Uptown Dallas has another high-rise building in the works.
Called Harwood No. 14, it's the newest office tower from Harwood International, and will be located at Hunt Street and Harry Hines Boulevard.
At 27 stories tall, it'll also be the tallest, and it already has a tenant: Haynes and Boone, Dallas' largest law firm, has signed a lease and will relocate into the building in 2023. Haynes and Boone will be the seventh Am Law 100 firm in the Harwood District.
According to D, the firm has leased 125,000 square feet. The building will break ground in winter 2020.
"With the District currently at 98 percent leased, we are pleased to keep up with demand for office space in Harwood," says a statement from Harwood International.
Alexis Barbier-Mueller, Harwood International managing director told D that Harwood No. 14 was in response to the demand for office space. Harwood No. 10, completed in 2019, is nearly full at 90 percent leased. And there are plans for a 42-story tower at Caroline and Field streets.
Similar to other Harwood buildings, Harwood No. 14 will feature landscaped plateaux, outdoor pocket gardens, and rooftop sky garden, as well as a two-story lobby and nine levels of parking.
The design and architecture teams behind Harwood No. 14 are Dallas-based HDF; Dallas-based Corgan; and Tokyo-based architect Kengo Kuma and Associates, who built the Rolex Building in 2018.
The office tower will present "several avant-garde amenities for tenants" including a fitness center with locker rooms and showers, and a multi-purpose center for conferences and catered events.
There'll be 12,000 square feet for restaurants, joining the ever-growing portfolio of eateries from Harwood Hospitality Group, such established names as Mercat Bistro, Dolce Riviera, The Grove at Harwood, Happiest Hour, Magnolias: Sous Le Pont, Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens, Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar, and Te Deseo, along with new concepts still TK including La Rue Perdue, the street-level "village" that will be home to Harwood Arms Pub.
