MetroTex serves North Texas’ residential realtor community. The 104-year-old not-for-profit professional organization owned its headquarters in Dallas for more than 30 years. Looking ahead to its next generation, MetroTex engaged BOKA Powell to design a state-of-the-art headquarters that caters to the needs of its members and staff. Situated along 635 LBJ Freeway in Irving, the new two-story building encompasses roughly 40,000 square feet. A dramatic spiral staircase in the lobby connects the first and second levels. It was important to take advantage of the site’s location along a natural greenbelt. Ground floor and second floor terraces overlook lush landscaping surrounding the building. Other special features include a banquet room for chapter events, awards ceremonies, and receptions, three large training rooms and a ground floor conference center, a Realtor lounge, video studio, and simulcast room. The upper level includes a large board room and a variety of open and private offices for executives and staff.
