Fort Worth-based Weaver is moving its Dallas office to The Union Dallas, RED Development’s mixed-use project in Uptown.
Weaver, an independent accounting firm, will take up about 58,000 square feet on two floors of the new office, residential and retail project that will total approximately 800,000 square feet and is scheduled to open in 2017.
Scott Morse and Scott Jessen with Citadel Partners represented Weaver, and John Brownlee and Sarah Hinkley with Peloton Commercial Real Estate represented the landlord, along with Paul Rowsey of RED Development in lease negotiations.
Weaver will move from their current Park Central location to the new location in 2018.
“Moving our Dallas office to this prime location will support and facilitate Weaver’s growth opportunities, increase our brand recognition and enhance our recruiting efforts,” said John Mackel, Weaver’s managing partner and CEO. “The Union is the ideal location because it’s close in proximity to many of our existing clients and referral relationships, particularly hedge and private equity funds. We also anticipate The Union to be a destination of choice for the Dallas business community, as well as a desired entertainment and residential location that can be enjoyed by our employees.”
RED Development, the project developer, announced The Union in May 2014 and is also leading the design and construction for the project. The typical floor plans for the office tower include 10-foot finished ceilings and floor-to-ceiling vision glass offering panoramic views of Uptown, Downtown, the Arts District, Klyde Warren Park and the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge.
The project’s amenities include a 60,000 square foot Tom Thumb grocery store on the ground floor to provide convenient on-site grocery shopping plus dining options wrapping around the ground level ranging from white tablecloth to fast-casual.
