Downtown Dallas Gets A Big-Time Relo

The DowntownDallas organization just invited me (and other media people, I assume) to a press conference to announce “a major corporate relocation to Downtown.” The release promises: “Announcement of a 165,000 square foot tenant moving to a signature Downtown Dallas property,” but it’s held at Fountain Place, which sorta takes the mystery of that part. Press conference, including a newly coiffed Mayor Leppert and DowntownDallas CEO John Crawford, is at 1 p.m. Notice I’m not saying who I think it is, in case some people want to enjoy the anticipation and surprise.

Update: DMN‘s Steve Brown = killjoy.

    My guess is the Cesar Chavez Task Force seeing how Fountain Place is located off of Ross. Viva La Mexico!

  2. J Paul says:

    It would be cool if the Relo folks refuse to move unless they keep Ross Avenue. Ross to Chavez no bueno.

    Oh come on, I can’t wait until 1:00… Just give us a hint!

  4. Nate says:

    Maybe it will be someone who wants Ross to become Cesar Chavez…like Pollo Campero. They could use more office space besides their building area off Tollway and LBJ.

  5. Pete says:

    Just curious. Any chance this story and the one above it are related?

  6. Patrick says:

    The DMN is reporting it’s Tenet Healthcare…

  7. JSP says:

    It’s Tenet Healthcare, and they’re moving from the Galleria area to downtown. So, technically, this is simply a win for downtown but a wash–it would seem–for Dallas since they were already IN Dallas.

    Can anyone explain why this street renaming issue is happening? Is it a diversion so we won’t notice something else going on in the city? Our street are already named, let it rest? And why Chavez?
