Landmark Dallas office tower campus is up for grabs
Steve Brown, Real Estate Editor

A landmark Dallas office development is up for grabs.

The four-building Stemmons Towers campus northwest of downtown Dallas was one of the city's first suburban high-rise office projects.

Built starting in the early 1960s, the 12-story buildings contain almost 300,000 square feet of spece stretching along Stemmons Freeway near the Medical District and Love Field.

Nobody tell Trammell Crow or Sam's Club, please.

That 1963 image is amazing with the skyline in the distance. Wonder if a developer would consider residential?

I've always liked this group of buildings and have always thought the area around them should be developed. I'm glad to see the Stemmons Corridor getting some attention. It seems to have been mostly ignored by a few of Dallas' boom cycles.

The Stemmon's corridor needs a huge cleanup. The roads are terrible including I-35, the buildings are neglected and filled with random businesses, litter everywhere, just seedy. It's sad because most people passing through Dallas on I-35 get this area as their impression of Dallas.

A lot of the land owners in this area have long been big supporters of the Trinity Toll-road and been very influential in pushing that project along. They wanted the added traffic from a Trinity Toll-road access to improve the value of the Stemmons corridor. I would love to see a new visionary developer come in and take a property like this one mentioned above and do more than just updating signage and landscaping. This site certainly has lots of potential for redevelopment in between the existing buildings. Like park lane a few parking garages could open up land for residential and retail development.

My ideal in this age of mega mixed use would be for someone to collaborate with TRE and with the Pollock family who own the 1960s buildings to the south. Between the DART property, this property, and the Pollock property, that's about 25 acres for TOD. Even cooler would be to coordinate that "station area" with the Parkland Hospital structure purchase and repurposing a block away. Add in the prominence from the freeway and such a project would really be the face of the medical district for a long time to come.

Great idea. The neighborhood looks terrible but the location, access and transit are awesome

I like all the ideas being thrown around, personally hope they keep the towers and find a way to erase the parking with lots of mixed use, maybe even add a couple large residential towers to help provide much needed housing and a fresh look along Stemmons.

These have always caught my eye when riding TRE. Always thought they looked pretty nice. There's so much potential too, with all the surface parking, to make a nice area.

I was driving home Friday and took a good look at this development. And I don't how I just noticed that J Pepe's had a location here in one of the towers. I used to love J Pepe's. I thought they were all long gone. Can't wait to get some of that wonderfully greasy TexMex!!

I believe that location has been there for a long time, and a quick search shows there is still one at Plaza of the Americas.
