“Gone are the days of cubicles, hung ceilings and fluorescent lighting. East Quarter harkens back to a time when craftsmanship and creativity reigned supreme. Leave the communal conference rooms, generic fitness basements and free keurig coffee cups to the shiny glass towers. ”
East quarter is a neighborhood filled with turn-of-the-century brick, stone and timber jewel boxes. These historic automobile showrooms have been home to Dallas’ most innovative companies since its inception as “Auto-Row” in the 1920s. Captivated by the history and transcendent architecture, Todd Interests set out to acquire 18 historic buildings in 2018. The acquisition totaled about 200,000 square feet acquired from four owners to be converted into a combination of office and retail space. When complete, East Quarter be one of the finest corporate campuses and once again the chief location for innovation in Dallas.
In addition to restoring the existing 18 historic buildings of East Quarter, the project also includes a new 17-story mixed use development with retail, office and residential space. Though an expansive building, the new development has been carefully designed to respect the already existing historic structures. At its core is the 74-year-old Meletio building, which will serve as the centerpiece of the new development. The project features 180,000 square feet of offices, 25,000 square feet of retail space, and 336 class A residential apartments, complete with an eighth-floor amenity deck with a swimming pool and outdoor areas.
