Here the most important thing is liberating the floor plan to permeate the whole public realm underneath the building, and then the execution of the building has a high-quality presence towards the city.

HKS was tasked with building a parking garage for the Trammell Crow Center on an undeveloped block across the street. The postmodern, 50-story office tower was at risk of losing tenants due to a lack of nearby amenities and insufficient parking. To remedy this, the architects presented an urban design solution offering street-level programming to activate the neighborhood and accommodate future growth in the central business district. The parking garage features an innovative facade — “lively yet vigorous” according to the jury — inspired by the neighboring Dallas Arts District. Future phases include the addition of a hotel and a residential/office building.
