THE CARNEGIE BRINGS CLASS A OFFICE SPACE
TO FORT WORTH
16-Story Office Building is First Building to Open in Sundance Square Since 2002
FORT WORTH, Texas (December 8, 2008) — The Carnegie, Sundance Square’s premier Class A office building, will open today with more than 75 percent of the 280,000 square feet of space leased. Located on West Third Street, between Taylor and Lamar, The Carnegie is the first new building to be constructed in Sundance Square since 2002.
Ed Bass, the project’s developer, Fort Worth Mayor Mike Moncrief, Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square, and architect David Schwarz will join other city officials, local dignitaries, and guests to officially open The Carnegie.
“The Carnegie has already exceeded our expectations for leasing,” said Ed Bass. “We are pleased to have EOG Resources and Comerica Bank as our lead tenants. This building is a new landmark in Sundance Square and reflects our commitment to bring Class A office space to the market.”
The building features first–class amenities including 13-foot floor-to-deck ceiling heights, high-speed elevators, energy-saving technologies, a grand two-story domed lobby, a high level of finishes throughout the building and ground floor retail coupled with Sundance Square’s elite operations and security teams.
The Carnegie’s tenants will have direct access to the existing parking structure that adjoins the building immediately to the south and to the existing Sundance Square garage to the East. Sundance Square’s restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, as well as additional structured parking, are all within easy walking distance.
EOG Resources , Inc. (EOG), one of the largest independent (non-integrated) oil and natural gas companies in the United States , has leased 196,500 square feet in the building.
“We have such a great product, and the addition of The Carnegie only builds upon the existing Sundance Square development,” remarked Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square. “The City of Fort Worth continues to be a great partner and the business community appreciates the quality of the building that we strive to bring to the market.”
The building was designed by David M Schwarz/Architectural Services, Inc. which has numerous prestigious projects in its portfolio including the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall in downtown Fort Worth, the American Airlines Center in Dallas, and Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Texas.
The Projects Group of Fort Worth, led by Vicki Dickerson, oversaw construction of The Carnegie. The Projects Group has also completed such notable projects as the Bass Performance Hall, Chase Bank Building, and Sundance West Apartments.
