Ebby Halliday’s Preston Center office has found a new home. After 38 years in the 4,100-square-foot office where it previously set up shop, the firm is expanding to a new chic space at 8333 Douglas Ave., across from the Park Cities Hilton and neighboring The Shelton high-rise.
Ground broke on the 10,000-square-foot project in August, and the new space opened its doors in early October, thanks to the completion of the initial phase. Architect Michael Twichell, whose work includes The Shops at Legacy in Plano and the Angelika Film Center in Dallas, is the engineer on the project. The new space will be in a more prominent location than the previous office.
“This high-visibility, contemporary office is built for the future,” said Ron Burgert, chief financial officer of the Ebby Halliday Companies, in a press release. “It offers an exceptional location and is a statement of our commitment to serving Dallas and the Park Cities for years to come.”
The expansion presented the chance to upgrade technology and create a sophisticated atmosphere for associates and clients, alike.
In addition to the 5,900 extra square feet of space, staff can look forward to commercial-grade Wi-Fi, Apple TVs in the conference rooms, a training room with new computers, private offices for top-producing agents, and a large sitting room with dining space, just to name a few of the amenities.
Designer Gary Owens created the modern feel of the office, which compliments the open concept of the office space and the natural light brought in by the windows on three sides.
Ginger Gill, sales manager of Ebby’s Preston Center office, believes that this expansion will build on its commitment to the community.
“Our vision for Ebby’s new Preston Center office was to create a modern, inviting space for our valued clients and the ideal working space for today’s high-tech real estate agents,” Gill said.
The second and final phase of the project is scheduled to open in mid-January.
