Address: 1505 Elm Street
Architect: George Dahl
Year Built: 1957
Year Built: Dallas: Federal Savings Building
Also known as: Dallas Federal Savings Building; Dresser Building, This 17-story building, which opened on 1 October 1957, was originally the home of Dallas Federal Savings and called the Dallas Federal Savings Building. Dallas Federal Savings started in 1919. Dahl created the building in a "modern" design with a blue-green porcelain and silver-gray enamel exterior, with a cast terrazzo grille. Robert E. McKee was the General Contractor. The interior lobby includes marble and teakwood trim and terrazzo floors
Dresser Industries bought the building in 1974 and moved its headquarters here. Dresser stayed until 1985 when it moved to the LTV Tower and sold the building to James Coker. The Dallas Chamber of Commerce purchased it in 1998 with plans to convert it to office space, but it proved to be too costly. Lazarus Property Co. purchased the building in 2001 and hired Merriman Associates Architects, Inc., to renovate it into 67 condominiums, creating the first downtown highrise converted to condominiums. During the renovation, the metal and glass façade was replaced.
Located in the northeast corner of downtown Dallas, the Dallas Arts District is the largest contiguous urban arts district in the nation, spanning 68 acres and 19 contiguous blocks. This iconic neighborhood has more buildings designed by Pritzker award-winning architects than any location in the world.
The National is positioned in the heart of Downtown Dallas at 1401 Elm Street and was the tallest building west of the Mississippi River when it delivered in 1964 as a 1.3 million square foot office tower. Vacant since 2010, Todd Interests, in partnership with Moriah Capital, is in the process of redeveloping this iconic tower into a new, modern, $450mm mixed-use building after acquiring controlling interest in the project in February 2019. The historic redevelopment will contain Thompson Hotels’ “flagship” in the State of Texas, 324 Class A multifamily units, 37,000 square feet of office space including a lease signed with Downtown Dallas, Inc., and 43,000 square feet of retail space. The Thompson Hotel will deliver in Fall 2020 in addition to the first turn of the multifamily apartment units, office, and retail space
East quarter is a neighborhood filled with turn-of-the-century brick, stone and timber jewel boxes. These historic automobile showrooms have been home to Dallas’ most innovative companies since its inception as “Auto-Row” in the 1920s. Captivated by the history and transcendent architecture, Todd Interests set out to acquire 18 historic buildings in 2018. The acquisition totaled about 200,000 square feet acquired from four owners to be converted into a combination of office and retail space. When complete, East Quarter will be an urban destination district within Dallas.
In addition to restoring the existing 18 historic buildings of East Quarter, the project also includes a new 20-story mixed use development with retail, office and residential space. Though an expansive building, the new development has been carefully designed to respect the already existing historic structures. At its core is the nearly 100-year-old Meletio building, which will serve as the centerpiece of the new development. The project features 200,000 square feet of offices, 25,000 square feet of retail space, and 336 class A residential apartments, complete with an eighth-floor amenity deck with a swimming pool and outdoor areas.
