DALLAS, TX – Trammell Crow Company announces that Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP has signed a long-term lease for approximately 56,340 square feet at PwC Tower at Park District, a 500,000 square foot Class A office tower located in the heart of Dallas’ Uptown submarket at the doorstep of Klyde Warren Park. Katten will occupy the entire tenth and eleventh floors in Q4 2019. Park District is a joint venture between Trammell Crow Company and MetLife Investment Management.
"This office is geared toward what the next generation of attorneys are asking for – a high-tech, flexible and efficient use of space," said Mark S. Solomon, managing partner of Katten’s Dallas office. “Additionally, the opportunity to relocate to Klyde Warren Park puts our attorneys and clients closer to the communities where they live and work, something that is important to them and to us.”
In February of 2018, Katten expanded its presence in Texas with a group of seven new corporate partners focused mainly on private equity work and based in Dallas, where many of the firm’s clients do business. Today, the office has an extraordinary group of nearly forty attorneys practicing not only in PE but in the areas of finance, M&A, health care, white collar, real estate, corporate and litigation. Katten also has offices in Houston and Austin.
“We are pleased to welcome this prestigious law firm to PwC Tower at Park District,” said Scott Krikorian, Senior Managing Director with Trammell Crow Company’s Dallas/Fort Worth Business Unit. “We are seeing a trend in the legal industry whereby firms are not only looking to help their clients, but to also create a quality work environment, with an eye on space efficiency and design to foster open communication and allow for a more collaborative and cooperative workspace.”
The 20-story office tower features an executive lounge, first-class fitness facility, collaborative workspaces, onsite restaurants, outdoor amenity spaces, on-site banking and valet along with 7,000 square feet of ground floor retail and four levels of below grade parking.
Katten was represented by Matt Craft with Lincoln Property Company in the transaction and Dennis Barnes, Shannon Brown, and Clay Gilbert with CBRE Dallas represented the landlord.
