The Harwood District is the ideal location for growing corporations to find new office space in uptown Dallas. Built as a community of premier class AA office buildings, the District also features luxury residential properties, several highly rated restaurants and retail space. The entire District is set in a park-like campus, with gardens throughout designed by world-renowned landscape architects, with the most recent done by Sadafumi Uchiyama. With a careful hand of elegance and detail, the offices and residential properties alike feature distinctly curated art-filled lobbies, all owned and managed by Harwood International.
In 1984, Rolex opened its doors in the Harwood District. As a result of growing its workforce and presence in Dallas, it expanded into a new office, designed by Tokyo-based Kengo Kuma and Dallas-based HDF. The building recently earned recognition from Engineering News-Record (ENR) as the Best Office Project in the World.
As Dallas grows as a central southern hub for international business, the Harwood District is growing along with it. Harwood International’s latest office development ready for occupancy, No 10, features 22 floors of 220,548 RSF of office space and over 14,000 RSF for retail and restaurants. The design contains La Rue Perdue, a European-inspired space of cobblestone pathways creating a refreshing atmosphere to make one feel miles away from the office. The building also focuses on the ever-important work/life balance for C-suite and junior executives alike, providing such life necessities as a fitness centre, squash court and golf simulator.
While businesses relocate into Harwood No 10, Harwood International keeps striving to be exceptional with its recently submitted Harwood No 12, a 500,000sq ft tower of office and retail space, which will be the tallest in uptown Dallas and feature an observation deck, sky lounge, garden amenity deck and ground-floor restaurants.
In Harwood International’s commitment to building a community and to its corporate partners, the Harwood Hospitality Group (its hospitality division) has now constructed the seventh level of its 22-storey boutique hotel within the District. Additionally, the group just launched the Latin-inspired Te Deseo, the eighth and largest concept within its epicurean collection.
Tenants in the Harwood District are within walking distance of the city’s most notable attractions, including sports and entertainment arenas; the Dallas Arts District, featuring multiple museums; the Samurai Collection at The Ann & Gabriel Barbier-Mueller Museum: The Samurai Collection; restaurants such as Dolce Riviera, The Grove at Harwood, Happiest Hour, Mercat Bistro, Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens, Saint Ann Restaurant & Bar and Magnolias Sous Le Pont; first-class hotels; and public parks such as the Katy Trail.
The 19-city-block District continues to grow into a community of over $4bn in office, retail and residential development to transform the uptown skyline of Dallas, one of the most sought-after places for corporate relocations.
