Scott + Reid was hired by building management to complete the capital improvements for Towers at Park Central, a Class-A property in Dallas, Texas. Starting with a dark and dated aesthetic, the project team was tasked with remodeling the look, feel, and flow of the three-tower complex in 24-weeks.
Cutting-edge LED lighting, back-lit living walls, perforated wood panels and unique light fixtures created the desired bright, fresh appearance to each atrium and elevator lobby. Refinishing the existing shiny stone floors, millwork and glass panels creatively weaved the new design into the existing structure.
Another key component to the project was encouraging tenant interaction by providing relaxing, yet functional common areas. Ample interior and exterior seating areas, multiple media centers, and conference rooms help achieve this goal. The creation of a large tenant lounge, complete with gaming tables, collaboration areas and a bar provide an inviting environment for tenants to conduct meetings or escape a demanding day.
Additional work performed includes renovation to the management office, fitness center, deli, and restrooms. A newly constructed digitally-integrated conference center provides a state-of-the art presentation room. It includes a complete kitchen and servery designed to comfortably accommodate a sizeable meeting.
Working in occupied towers necessitates extensive coordination and planning to complete renovations with minimal disturbance to tenants. The project team organized its skilled trades to accommodate the owner’s needs, ensuring the seamless transition from old to new, while business of the tenants continued uninterrupted. Relocation of the building sundry shop into their new expanded space demonstrates thoughtful preparation and execution. This tenant was moved over a weekend, never experiencing down-time and has realized a drastic increase in business since the move.
Scott + Reid successfully implemented the architect’s unique vision, combining the best elements of design and function to create an unparalleled and functional office environment. The finished project revitalized the property and created an appealing business home for current and prospective tenants.
