The State’s Largest Historic Renovation in Downtown Dallas Lights Up

Ten years ago, the vertical white lights on the former First National Bank tower were turned off after the building closed. Now the 55-year-old Elm Street landmark is being transformed as part of a $450 million redevelopment project. Award-winning real estate firm Todd Interests is developing office spaces for tenants like Downtown Dallas Inc., as well as luxury apartments, restaurants, retail, and a 219-room Thompson Hotel. Renamed The National, the 52-story high-rise is scheduled to open by the end of this year. The lights have already been turned back on.

This is one of the state’s largest adaptive reuse projects, and DDI will stake its claim on a bottom floor space that will be visible from the street. This has for years been downtown’s largest vacant block, a monstrous building covered in fencing whose developers just couldn’t get the financing to make what they called the Drever a reality. But then came Todd Interests, who picked up the baton and took the project forward. It was acquired in 2016 by Drever Capital Management, which remained as an advisory role once Shawn and Philip Todd came to the table in May of last year. They had to work quickly: work has to wrap by the end of the year in order for it to qualify for $100 million in tax credits.

Philip Todd once told D CEO that this project was “the most complicated and challenging adaptive reuse” project that he’d ever worked on. That would help explain why—in the public’s eye, at least—it has sat virtually untouched for years, a giant gash in the middle of a downtown that was thriving pre-pandemic. The 318 luxury apartments will include the 48th floor, making them the highest address in downtown.

What we see now is the largest historic renovation in Texas. That

An EF-3 Tornado Destroyed It In 2019, Today A Dallas Home Depot Store Reopens

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – The Home Depot store on Forest Lane in Dallas will reopen October 8, nearly a year after being ripped apart by a powerful tornado.

It was on October 20, 2019 when an EF-3 tornado swept through North Dallas, causing part of the store to collapse. On that one day there were 10 tornadoes — in Dallas, Garland and Richardson — that caused some $2 billion in damage to homes and businesses.

Today customers at the North Dallas location were happy to have their neighborhood home improvement store back open for business.

Customer Frank Jeffreys said, “It’s good to see them back smiling again, because it was such a hard time for them. I know it was, because it was pretty devastating when it [tornado] came through.”

“Nice to be back home,” assistant store manager Jordan Jasper told CBS 11 News, be he admitted it took vision to get everything done. “We had a store that needed to be put back together and my mindset was ‘let’s figure out what we need to pick up and what we need to move out of the way so we can open up tomorrow at 6 a.m.’”

On Wednesday the store hosted a ‘board cutting’ — as opposed to the traditional ribbon cutting — to celebrate today’s reopening.

The store will have between 200 and 250 employees and associates, and if you’re looking for a job they’re still hiring.
