The Property

400 S. Akard Street is located on three acres in the heart of the central business district minutes from major office, hotel, restaurant and retail facilities, and is conveniently served by Dart’s light rail system.  The property is fully equiped to house environmentally sensitive communications equipment, mission critical data center operations, and business enterprises that find it advantageous to locate within a high-security, state-of-the-art venue.

The seven-story building was originally completed in 1921 to house the United States Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas. The Beaux Arts-style limestone building established Dallas as a center for economic development in the Southwest prior to World War I. The Bank significantly expanded and modernized the property in 1959.  Its distinctive architectural style and detailing led the city of Dallas to designate the building a historic landmark in 1979.

In 2000, an expert telecom development team carefully renovated the building, taking advantage of its inherent security features to create the ideal real estate solution for the technology industry. The building offers maximum connectivity, a robust, redundant power supply and approximately 300,000 rentable square feet ideally suited for telecom, enterprise data centers, disaster recovery, back-office operations and traditional office use.
