The Dallas Center for Architecture will be a new space for exhibits, displays, and lectures, and will be located on the first floor of the southeast corner of the building (by Pacific/St. Paul). The Center is partnering with the local office of the American Institute of Architects and has named several architecture and design firms which will help put the space together. The collaboration is stopping short of calling the space a 'museum' but it is doing almost everything a museum would do--have an intriguing, inviting space; have regular exhibits; and have regular speakers on various topics regarding architecture.

I’m glad they’re doing something with that space. I’ve hoped it would eventually be a restaurant, since the future Pacific Plaza park is going right across the street.

Currently, they have this in the building next to Klyde Warren. I imagine that buildings owner is ready to lease that space out to a restaurant with direct access to the park so the Dallas Center for Architecture is moving to a new location. The space in Republic Tower they are moving to is tricky cause right in the middle of it is a hole for the basement atrium. It previously housed a furniture showroom. I imagine a restaurant wouldn't have worked there without major modifications to how the ground floor space is divided up. On both sides of this corner is a building lobby so its limited in how it could be reorganized. This space seems perfect because they will be able to watch the park get built. Then once the park is done and opened they could move again when the building will have a lot more interest in leasing the odd space.

Downtown Dallas' landmark Republic Center lands new tenants

https://www.dallasnews.com/business/rea ... ew-tenants

The high-rise - built in 1964 for Republic National Bank - is located across the street from where construction has started on downtown's next major park, Pacific Plaza.

Maybe that has something to do with a half dozen new business leases in the silver metal clad building.

For a more accurate rendering of the story: https://www.bisnow.com/dallas-ft-worth/news/office/downtown-office-building-signs-slew-of-leases-88558 (at least half of the square footage of "new tenants" reported by Steve are renewals.

Great news!

The author of this one had a doozy of a TL;DR link in the story. For reference, Kylde Warren is 5 acres.

Pacific Plaza Park is being built across the street, adding an amenity for Republic Center tenants, Permenter said. That $15M, 3.4-acre project (link) is adding a park three times larger than Klyde Warren, which has been pivotal in the revitalization of Downtown.

LOL At least they accurately reported on the main topic of the article. ;-)

This park will certainly be a boon for Republic Tower. The main entrance faces the park and instead of looking at an ugly parking lot it will be trees and a grassy lawn. I just hope eventually they could add an eatery on this side of the building. The ground floor of this building is beautifully set up for retail but it has mostly been passive office space until now. The Dallas Architecture center will take up the only empty site facing the park. The space near the DART station facing this park could be regeared at a later date if desired. In general, the Park will help change the energy of this property.

The Dallas Center for Architecture has a name change coming. It will be "AD EX", or the Architecture and Design Exchange.

Looks like it will make for a much more attractive ground floor visual for the park side of the Republic Tower.
