Patent Office Selects Dallas For Regional Branch

From Rawlings’ Facebook page:

I’m excited by today’s announcement that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office will make Downtown Dallas the home of their new regional satellite office. This office will be a catalyst for innovation, economic growth & job creation throughout North Texas.

Downtown Dallas will immediately become a hub for entrepreneurs, inventors and small businesses.

I’d like to thank Undersecretary David Kappos and his team for their cooperation during the site selection process. We look forward to working with the U.S. Commerce Department for years to come.

Recent D Magazine subject Noah Jeppson wrote about the building – at 207 South Houston – for Unvisited Dallas earlier this year, calling it a “somewhat overlooked, [and] impressive Art Deco structure.” The Patent Office will occupy 45,000 square feet of the building.
