Mayflower Building

Dallas , TX
Cost: $47 Million | Previous Use: Commercial Office Building | Current Use: Apartments

Project Details

The Mayflower Building, constructed in 1965, was designed by the locally prominent Dallas architecture firm Thomas E. Stanley Architects and Engineers.  Built by the Mayflower Investment Company, a subsidiary of the Fidelity Union Life Insurance Company of Dallas, the building was designed as speculative office space to be utilized by the financial, insurance and data processing companies that were reshaping the mid-century economy.  The building is a typical mid-century modern office building constructed of concrete with an aluminum-framed glass curtain wall.  After 50 years as an office building, the Mayflower Building was purchased by HRI Properties and rehabilitated for use as apartments with ground floor retail and interior parking.  Heritage guided the project through the state and federal Historic Tax Credit processes.
