“There’s no better place to promote the greater region than looking out our office windows, surrounded by the many communities we serve every day,” said Angela Farley, CFO and COO at the DRC. “As a non-profit entity, we have financial limitations to be good stewards for our members, and thanks to JLL, CBRE, and our landlord, HPI, they helped us secure long-term, prudent investment. We’re honored to remain a marquis tenant here.”
The Class A, 45-story high-rise building, which was renamed Ross Tower in 2013 because it overlooks Ross Avenue, provides a cityscape view of the entire region including Oak Cliff, Fair Park, Arlington, Fort Worth, DFW Airport, Plano, Irving, Grapevine, and Midlothian.
“It was critical to be in a Class A building that helps us best represent the region to both current and incoming companies,” Farley said. “We couldn’t have asked for a better economic development recruiting tool.”
