KPMG LLP has signed on to lease more space at its namesake office building, the 500,000-square-foot KPMG Plaza at HALL Arts. The accounting firm will be expanding into an additional 11,430 square feet in the Dallas Arts District by the end of summer, occupying a total of 193,430 square feet.
Terms of the lease were not disclosed. “We’re excited to announce that we’re expanding our footprint at KPMG Plaza,” Manny Fernandez, managing partner of KPMG’s Dallas office, said in a statement. “Since we moved into KPMG Plaza in August of 2015, we have enjoyed the vibrancy of the Arts District, and our ‘workplace of the future’ floor plans have been a hit with our professionals and new hires. We’re thrilled to continue our collaboration with HALL Group.”
KPMG currently occupies floors 8-15 in the office tower, with 1,100 workstations, offices, and project rooms to be used by staff. Each of the seven floors also includes a dining area, quiet rooms, and telephone rooms. The lease expansion will be on the 16th floor and is earmarked for use as space for additional employees and increased conference space.
KPMG’s website shows 71 job openings in the Dallas office for “experienced hires.” “The company has experienced strong growth since moving into its namesake building and we are fortunate to have them here. We look forward to seeing them continue to thrive for many years to come,” Kim Butler, director of leasing at HALL Group, said in a statement.
Kim Butler represented KPMG Plaza at HALL Arts in the transaction, and Carl Ewert of JLL represented the tenant, KPMG. The office tower now sits at around 80 percent leased, with the top two floors (78,000 square feet) still up for grabs.
