November 29, 2023

Capitalizing on recent success, Harwood International is ready for the next phase of the Harwood District.

Global real estate firm Harwood International has announced a new Class AA development, Harwood No. 15, in the 19-city block luxury lifestyle neighborhood, Harwood District. Harwood No. 15 will stand 23 floors tall with 340,000+ rentable square feet paired with unmatched modern amenities. The tower will be located just steps from the Katy Trail and Harwood’s La Rue Perdue.

Harwood No. 15 will deliver a striking amenity-rich Class AA office building featuring spa-like amenities, including saunas, steam rooms, and cold plunge, as well as a technology-forward conferencing center, fitness center with deluxe locker rooms, an expansive 20,000 SF rooftop park, and a dynamic restaurant to expand upon Harwood Hospitality Group’s growing portfolio of popular dining destinations.

Harwood International will retain the talented development ensemble as its latest successful endeavor, Harwood No. 14 – world-renowned architects Kengo Kuma & Associates, Corgan, and in-house Harwood design and construction management teams.

“Kengo Kuma & Associates, Corgan, and Harwood’s in-house teams have worked incredibly well together to bring our latest development Harwood No. 14 to life,” said Harwood International president, Oliver Barbier-Mueller. “We are keeping the band together to bring the same success to our next project, Harwood No. 15.”

Harwood International has built a reputation for collaborating with globally acclaimed architects to infuse Dallas with authentic international design. The upcoming Harwood No. 15 will mark Kengo Kuma & Associate’s fourth project within the Harwood District.

“Our friendship with Harwood International has yielded a range of taller buildings that have steered us toward unexpected directions,” said Kuma. “Each project is an effort to explore the typology using consistent horizontal or vertical motifs, looking for newness in the details, and a meaningful relationship to the surrounding city.”

The design of the new No. 15 tower is carefully crafted to harmonize with the existing architecture of its surroundings, aligning with the aesthetic vision of the entire Harwood District. Emphasizing the commitment to enhancing the street-level experience, the tower incorporates ground-level beautification with wide sidewalks and pocket parks, furthering the approach taken by the neighboring buildings within the District.

“The integration of hospitality-driven amenities is key for collaboration, talent attraction, and talent retention,” said Kelly Whaley, director of leasing, Harwood International. “Harwood has designed Harwood No. 15 to deliver an efficient office building with a hospitality twist. We’re taking the design elements and operational efficiencies from our recently delivered Hôtel Swexan and incorporating those features into an office building.”

Harwood No. 14 was delivered in June 2023 and is currently 76 percent leased. Several tenants, including S2 Capital and Haynes Boone, have begun moving in over the summer. O’Melveny & Myers will move into the building in December.

The unique collaboration of hospitality, office, art, amenities, and the firm’s focus on green space, has manifested into the lively Harwood District that stands today. The neighborhood boasts a 94 Walk Score, among the highest in Dallas.

Embodying a relentless pursuit of excellence, the dynamic neighborhood, Harwood District, is unlike any other. By collaborating with internationally acclaimed architects and using timeless materials, developing outstanding buildings is the standard for Harwood International. The global developer sets its projects apart with an aptitude for hospitality.

Harwood International’s hospitality division has flourished over the years, growing to a portfolio consisting of 16 unique restaurants in the Harwood District and the recently opened luxury hotel, Hôtel Swexan. This expertise in the hospitality industry, combined with 40+ years in development mastery, positions Harwood International to deliver an unparalleled office experience. The attention to detail and customer service knowledge gained from its hotel, restaurant, and bars, transfers seamlessly over to the concierge team, impeccable amenities, and tenant services.

The Harwood District is 93 percent leased and achieves among the highest rates in the market. Harwood signed over 300,000 RSF of leases in 2022 with staggered new developments coming online over the next couple of years, we continue to see demand outpace supply.
