Omni Dallas Restaurant and Garage Expansion

Dallas, Texas/15,000 SF

To expand parking and dining offerings for visitors and guests at the 1,001-room Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel and adjacent Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center, BOKA Powell worked with the City of Dallas and developer Matthews Southwest to create 15,000 SF of new restaurant space atop an underground parking structure that expands capacity by 350 vehicles. Following negotiations with the City and Matthews Southwest, BOKA Powell worked with the selected restaurant owners to give each restaurant its own unique identity within the structure, selecting building materials that represent the restaurants’ brands and identities. Operable wall systems allow partial or full openness to each restaurant’s outdoor patio. The project was funded using savings realized during the construction of the hotel complex, which opened in November 2011.
