Regions Bank is moving its Dallas-area headquarters to a new 71,000 square foot location in the 17Seventeen McKinney building at 1717 McKinney Ave. in Uptown. The bank’s new Texas headquarters will comprise two floors of regional offices, a retail bank and drive-thru lanes. Regions property management partner, CBRE represented Birmingham, Ala.-based Regions in this transaction.
“Regions’ move to be a part of Dallas’ nationally recognized skyline is a result of the tremendous growth we’ve experienced in Texas over the past five years,” said Marc Angle, Regions’ Texas president. “Not only will it be a source of pride for all of our D/FW associates, it also will include our main branch here in Dallas with all lines of business to support our continued growth in Texas.”
The new location is a lease agreement with Plano-based Granite Properties – the developers of 17Seventeen McKinney in Uptown Dallas. 17Seventeen McKinney is part of Park Seventeen, a mixed-use development owned by GPI-M Uptown, LP (a joint venture between Granite and MetLife). The office portion is located at the corner of Akard Street and McKinney Avenue. The bank plans to move its offices from Regions Tower off Mockingbird Lane to Granite Properties’ Uptown high-rise in January 2014. The bank will maintain an office and branch services at t he Mockingbird Lane location.
Jerry Cobb, Jr. and Christine Mickey from CBRE in Dallas and Scott Willenbrock from CBRE in Birmingham represented the tenant. Robert Jimenez and Jim Kirchhoff from Granite Properties in Dallas represented the landlord.
