CITYPLACE DALLAS, TX REAL ESTATE FOR SALE
Cityplace Real Estate For Sale in Dallas, TX
Cityplace is an area of Dallas that resides inside Uptown Dallas. One of the most recognizable structures in the entire area is the Tower at Cityplace. This tower can be seen for miles around as it it's the tallest structure outside of the downtown area of Dallas. The Tower at Cityplace is 560 feet tall and has over 1,400,000 square feet of office space, making it one of the busiest business buildings in the entire Dallas Metro area. Construction of this magnificent tower began in 1984 and finished in 1988 with a delay of a year and was originally to be the new corporate headquarters for Southland Corporation, which is now 7-Eleven.
Interesting parts of this building history involve the buyout of Southland Corporation which resulted in the lower nineteen floors being empty when it opened and for several years. Add to this challenge, the plan was to originally build a twin to the Tower at Cityplace with a bridge between the two built over the highway. The second tower never made it to construction and the Tower at Cityplace which was originally named Cityplace East gained its current name. The Brazilian red granite ordered for the second tower has been selling for years to construct homes and other office buildings.
The area that was cleared for the second Cityplace tower is now home to the West Village development and offers a home for many who enjoy the Uptown area of Dallas. The Tower at Cityplace is visible for miles around and was the last of the high-rises to be built in the 1980's in the Dallas area. This area gives those who work in the tower a great place to live with easy access to many of the Dallas city areas that offer great entertainment and shopping within easy walking distance all around.
