Westdale and KDC Begin Work on The Epic in Deep Ellum
DALLAS, TX Westdale and KDC have started construction on The Epic, a mixed-use, transit-oriented development in Dallas, Texas,' most unique and authentic neighborhood - Deep Ellum.
"The Epic will complement Deep Ellum and provide state-of-the-art office space, residential and hospitality to the neighborhood, further contributing to Deep Ellum's resurgence and sustainability as Dallas' most unique urban neighborhood," said Joe Beard, CEO, Westdale.
The Epic will be developed on an eight-acre site which is currently occupied by the historic Union Bankers Building. The project, which will feature an office building, residential tower, and boutique hotel, will transform the western end of Deep Ellum on land Westdale has owned for more than 20 years.
"This is one of the most unique projects KDC has ever undertaken, and we are thrilled to be working with Westdale on this special and exciting project," said Steve Van Amburgh, CEO of KDC. "The Epic will attract millennials and tenants looking for the authenticity that comes with adaptive re-use projects, but also the modern efficiencies and amenities of new construction. Plus, the views of Deep Ellum and Downtown Dallas are absolutely phenomenal."
KDC is developing the ten-story, 250,000-square-foot office tower, which will have unobstructed views of Downtown Dallas and Deep Ellum. Amenities include a modern lobby, rooftop cafÃ© and amenity deck and fitness center. Retail space will line the ground level of the office building, along with the first floor of the future multifamily tower in a pedestrian-oriented internal streetscape.
The new 164-room Pittman Hotel will be built within the existing Union Bankers Building, a century-old registered landmark. The Epic will also include a 300-unit residential tower developed by StreetLights Residential. The office tower, Pythias Hotel, and the residential tower are slated for completion in late 2019.
