Exciting new renovations coming to the Trammell Crow Center have created a lot of buzz and interest from businesses considering moving to the downtown space. For brokers looking to help their clients make the best-informed decision in their office space needs, here are the top 10 things to know about the Trammell Crow Center and the changes to come.
1. The addition of 2000 Ross will improve parking.
Trammell Crow Center already has convenient parking options, as well as valet service, but the addition of the 9-story garage going in at 2000 Ross will make parking at Trammell Crow Center 3:1,000.
2. There is an expanded focus on fitness.
The Trammell Crow Center’s renovations include an expanded 9000 sq ft athletic club on the second floor, including a centralized group fitness room for classes like yoga. This will be an improvement on the existing fitness center in the building.

3. Highway access is simple.
It’s a common misconception that downtown locations are difficult to get in and out of due to traffic and ingress/egress flow problems. In reality, Trammell Crow Center’s location in the Arts District is just a few blocks away from Woodall Rodgers as well as major access points to I-45, I-75, and I-35E.
4. Green Space is growing.
Klyde Warren park added some much needed green space to the Arts District. The Trammell Crow Center additions will help build on that. This is great for companies and employees alike as green space has been proven to improve productivity and employee happiness.
5. There will be more common areas and group workspaces.
Additions to the building amenities of Trammell Crow Center include a 9000 sq ft conference center and a 3095 sq ft “social workspace” for a co-working feel.

6. Employee conveniences will be steps away.
In addition to offering on-site dry cleaning and a car wash for tenants, the arrival of Royal Blue Grocery will offer convenience and reprieve for those with busy lifestyles. Opposite of Royal Blue Grocery, a new restaurant, created by Tim McEney, will be introduced to the Trammell Crow Center. It will be similar in concept to Front Room Tavern, his other restaurant located in the Lumen Hotel Downtown.

7. Tenants get the ultimate customer experience.
Trammell Crow Center’s conceierge delivers the ultimate customer service to tenants. From valet and notary services, to ticket discounts and massage events, the concierge aims to improve your day-to-day.
8. The area has a high walk score.
The downtown area as a whole has a walk score of 89, much higher than the 45 of Dallas as a whole. The renovations of Trammell Crow Center and the addition of 2000 Ross’ new development are both expected to promote walkability even further.
9. New retail will further build the Arts District.
As it stands now, the Arts District is very much a destination for people rather than a common hangout. New retail at Trammell Crow Center and 2000 Ross is expected to change this perception of the area to a “Night and Day” location where people can do it all.
10. Hotel and residences create a mixed-use space.
The popularity of areas like Uptown revolves around the desire for mixed-use facilities where employees and residents never have to stray far. The addition of apartments and hotel development at 2000 Ross help contribute to this atmosphere in the Arts District, adding desired living options.
