Owner Grupo Haddad has tapped Newmark as exclusive leasing agent for its 110,000-square-foot office building in Uptown Dallas. The property went through an $8 million capital improvement program that was completed in July.
The current ownership picked up the asset in 2013. Newmark’s team of Executive Managing Director Nathan Durham and Associate Natalie Serio will be marketing the property for lease. The building’s previous leasing agent was CBRE and Gamecraft Studios is part of the current roster, according to CommercialEdge.
Dating back to 1982, the seven-story property is located at 2501 Cedar Springs Road. The building includes three passenger elevators, 17,000-square-foot floor plates and 350 vehicle parking spots, the same source shows.
The improvement plan resulted in a luxury lobby, a conference center, a renovated parking facility, upgraded common areas and restrooms, a ground-floor restaurant and outdoor green spaces. The building’s electrical rooms and systems, elevators and security services were also improved.
2501 Cedar Springs sits on approximately 2 acres, close to Interstate 35 and to multiple bus stops, being 4 miles from Dallas Love Field Airport, 16 miles from Dallas Fort Worth International Airport and within 33 miles of Fort Worth, Texas.
