RedBird apartment community kicks off construction
https://www.dallasnews.com/business/rea ... struction/
Developers are breaking ground today on the next phase of redevelopment of Southwest Dallas’ RedBird Mall.
Apartment builder Palladium USA is building the $60 million, 300-unit rental community as part of the effort to repurpose the 44-year-old shopping mall at Interstate 20 and U.S. Highway 67.
In less than a year after opening a 50,000-square-foot call center at southern Dallas's RedBird development, Atlanta-based Chime Solutions has already hired more than 1,000 employees there, CEO Mark Wilson told the Dallas Business Journal Friday.
"We're already there. We've hired more than 1,000 people in Dallas thus far. We have most people working from home though," said Wilson.
The family-owned customer care outsourcing company originally planned to have around 500 employees working at RedBird when it first opened its call center last fall. Positions would include entry level and managerial roles with pay starting at $14 an hour. Wilson said in July of last year that the goal was to eventually hire 1,000 employees at RedBird, but no timeline was given for when this expansion would happen. To accommodate the growth, Wilson also said the company would double its footprint to 100,000 square feet at the former mall.
Atlanta-based Chime Solutions is hoping to add 450 more jobs to its existing call center at RedBird in southern Dallas.
The Dallas City Council will consider an amendment to its economic development grant agreement with the company Jan. 13. Due to the continued uncertainty of COVID-19 and its impacts on office space needs, Chime is asking the city to delete its requirement to execute a right of first refusal to lease an additional 30,000 square feet within RedBird. It also wants to get rid of a $2.2 million investment requirement to furnish the new space.
Chime Solutions CEO Mark Wilson told the Dallas Business Journal in September that in less than a year of opening, the company had already hired 1,000 employees at RedBird, with most working from home due to the pandemic. The company already occupies 50,000 square feet within the former mall and was looking to eventually double its footprint.
