Developers are asking for approvals to move ahead with a new tower in Dallas’ Victory Park project.
Hillwood Urban has filed plans with the city for an office and retail high-rise that would be built next to DART’s Victory Park rail station.
The 15-story building would have 374,000 square feet of office space and 13,000 square feet of retail, according to plans given the city.
The new 2601 Victory Avenue tower would be built across the street from the American Airlines Center arena, and a 7-story parking garage would be built behind the new tower.
Dallas architect BOKA Powell designed the building with brick, concrete and glass – giving a nod to older buildings in the West End district.
The planned office tower is to be built on part of an 8.4-acre tract that Hillwood owns on the west side of Victory Park. It’s one of the properties that’s been pitched to digital retailer Amazon as a potential site for its second headquarters.
A 1-acre park will separate the new office from the DART station and a parking garage next door.
Victory Park has seen a development boom in the last few years, with a handful of new apartment high-rises, construction of a movie theater and redevelopment of retail space in the project on the northwest side of downtown.
