In May 2013, HKS, Inc.
moved into its new headquarters at One Dallas Center, adjacent to St. Paul Station. The Dallas-based architectural firm leased space in a largely vacant, dilapidated building desperately in need of revitalization, and converted a large portion of the property into its new home.
HKS occupies 140,000 square feet of workspace at One Dallas Center, a skyscraper originally designed by I.M. Pei & and Partners in 1979. The building now is owned by St. Paul Holdings LP, a joint redevelopment of Todd Interests and Moriah Real Estate Co. HKS occupies the basement and floors one through seven.
HKS touts its location at the heart of the DART Rail System and access to alternative transportation, including walking, biking, busing and light rail, among the office's many sustainable elements. More than 30 percent of the firm's employees ride DART.
