DALLAS, Aug. 4, 2016 – Corgan is pleased to announce the expansion and renovation of its downtown Dallas headquarters to consolidate operations and accommodate its continued growth. The international, Dallas-based architecture and interior design firm plans to expand its current West End location at 401 North Houston Street with the addition of more office space and a multi-level parking structure.
“We have been extremely fortunate to have earned the trust of our many valued clients, and it is their continued faith in us that has fueled the growth we are now responding to,” said Bob Morris, Corgan President and CEO.
The Dallas location houses studios from all of the firm’s market sectors as well as the services that support firm-wide operations.
“We studied alternative locations and decided that staying in downtown Dallas, in the West End in a building we designed, was the best cultural and operational fit for our firm. It is also wonderful to see the exciting new office, housing, amenity and technology developments underway in the West End today. Corgan was a pioneer when we first moved into the West End over 30 years ago. We are really proud to be continuing to contribute to its vitality and its future,” he said.
“The primary focus of this expansion is to consolidate Corgan’s Dallas staff under one roof and renovate the existing building to meet the firm’s evolving needs and better serve our clients”, Morris said.
Corgan has been renting space at nearby 1701 Market Street for the last two years as it had outgrown its existing building on Houston Street. As part of the expansion, Corgan plans to update its existing space to respond to the changing needs of its various workgroups. The renovation will focus on enhancing both the employee and client experience. Construction will begin in fall of this year with an expected completion date of 2Q 2018.
“We aim to create places where our clients thrive, that enhance and enable their organizations’ cultures,” Morris said. “This is an opportunity for us to do the same with this exciting renewal of our headquarters.”
Greg Biggs and his team at Jones Lang LaSalle worked with Corgan to identify options, evaluate potential solutions and facilitate Corgan’s decision to stay in the West End.
