Not to brag, but I worked with the DBJ to break this story.
I was hesitant to report my findings because I know the City, the developer and CHRISTUS Health weren't ready for this info to get out. Several NDA's had been signed and I'm sure CHRISTUS is still in negotiations with the City about the project. I didn't want to risk maybe CHRISTUS pulling out of the project. But I ultimately decided to pass along the info to the DBJ and exchanged a few emails with them. https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news ... rters.html
How did I figure out CHRISTUS was the potential tenant for the new proposed tower? Well, for starters I zoomed all over the site plan to see if I could find any clues. Yep, found one on the very top left portion of the site plan that BOKA Powell had submitted to P&Z for review. In teeny tiny print the name CHRISTUS appeared along with some other numbers and letters. That was my starting point, and really enough for me to feel confident that was the tenant! Next, I did some research on Fidelis Realty. It appears that Fidelis primarily works with healthcare companies. That gave me 2 connections! Finally, Kevin O'Neill whom is with Fidelis Realty spoke at the P&Z meeting regarding the project. I found several old articles in both the DBJ and D Magazine that discussed CHRISTUS choosing Las Colinas for it's new HQ back in 2012. Kevin O'Neill, whom was with CBRE then, actually helped negotiate the lease for CHRISTUS back in 2012 and is working on the deal today. So obviously that's his client. That gave me enough to go on and I felt 99.99% sure I had figured it out.
Now just looking forward to seeing this hopefully move forward and seeing some renderings. It's been TOO long since the Urban Center has seen a new office building.
