Empty medical building on Gaston Avenue in East Dallas will become Westin hotel project
A long vacant East Dallas building is being eyed for a boutique hotel development.
Carrolton-based Atlantic Hotels Ltd. has purchased the vacant Dallas Health & Rehabilitation Center building on Gaston Avenue near Baylor Medical Center.
The 7-story medical building has been empty for years. The 100,000-square-foot former medical building was built in 1964 and is just a block from Baylor’s campus.
Atlantic Hotels has filed permits with the City of Dallas to convert the building into an Element by Westin Hotel. The project will cost about $25 million. Veritex Bank funded the development.
If the project goes as planned, the building is scheduled to reopen in early 2017 with 151 hotel rooms.
