- Dallas Innovates

Dallas-based developer KDC says the 30-story Parkside Uptown will be “an exceedingly modern workplace” that “embraces creativity and provides inspiration to enterprising ventures.”


The downtown Dallas skyline and Klyde Warren Park offer striking views. And a new 30-story high-rise planned by Dallas-based developer KDC is set to take stunning advantage of them.

KDC’s $200 million Parkside Uptown is slated for a mid-year groundbreaking, according to state filings cited by the Dallas Morning News. To be located at the corner of N. Harwood Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway across from the park, the podium-style building will offer nearly 500,000 square feet of Class A office space and over 8,000 square feet of ground-floor retail and restaurants. The site’s owner, Miyama USA Texas, is partnering with KDC on the project, the DMN’s Steve Brown reports.

Designed to be ‘an exceedingly modern workplace’

Parkside Uptown is designed by New York-based global architecture firm Kohn Pedersen Fox, working in tandem with Dallas-based Corgan. Setbacks and outdoor terraces will offer opportunities for the building’s occupants to get fresh-air views of the park activity below. Meanwhile, parkgoers will see Klyde Warren’s greenspace seem to leap up vertically onto the building’s facade.

KDC says the building will be “an exceedingly modern workplace,” one that “embraces creativity and provides inspiration to enterprising ventures.” A Sky Lobby and shared tenant spaces, along with the terraces, will offer workers “ample space to collaborate or relax.” The building will also offer a fully equipped, tenant-only fitness facility. On the ground level, a corner plaza will be shaded by a “heroically cantilevered structure.”

Completion is scheduled for 2026.

Phase two building planned next door would offer a hotel

As seen in the rendering above, company could be coming in the future for the 30-story Parkside Uptown building. A planned phase two building would mirror the first one, with a similar “green” facade and strikingly modern architecture. According to the DMN, the phase two building would include a hotel.
