Southwest Dallas Redbird speeds up to land office and medical tenants

A commercial real estate company has made a commitment to seek tenants for Southwest Dallas’ largest real estate development project.

Transwestern Real Estate Services was hired to bring together medical and office tenants for the $ 200 million redevelopment of the former Redbird Mall at Interstate 20 and US Highway 67.

Developers Peter Brodsky and Terrance Maiden demolished much of the old 94-acre mall and replaced it with the Reimagine Redbird mixed-use project, which includes retail, residential and office space.

Healthcare providers Parkland Hospital, UT Southwestern Medical Center and Children’s Health have announced plans for medical facilities at Redbird. Other spaces are offered to users of the medical and general space.

An Atlanta-based call center operator, Chime Solutions, plans to have more than 1,000 employees in 80,000 square feet of offices in the development.

“We are excited about the opportunity to bring additional healthcare and office tenants to this project,” said Chris Lipscomb of Transwestern, who is part of the team renting the office space. “Our research shows that South Dallas is underserved with respect to certain medical specialties, such as cardiovascular, dermatology and pulmonology.

“The demand for specialized healthcare offerings, coupled with the region’s growing residential population and proximity to nearby amenities, will be attractive to office and healthcare tenants. “

Lipscomb, John Huff, Brooke Sutherland and Cohen Howard of Transwestern market the offices to tenants.

“Over the past few years, Redbird has grown from a 1970s mall to a vibrant mixed-use development that offers South Dallas residents the high-quality amenities they desire,” said Peter Brodsky, Owner and developer of Redbird. in a report. “South Dallas has an attractive audience with huge demand but little supply of daily amenities such as offices and medical services.”

Construction has just been completed on a 300 unit luxury apartment community in Redbird that was built by Dallas developer Palladium USA. The rental community is fully leased.

A 150-room Courtyard / Residence Inn by Marriott is scheduled to begin construction next year.

Built in 1975, Redbird Mall – which was later renamed Southwest Center – suffered years of decline before developer Brodsky bought the property in 2018.

The city of Dallas has provided more than $ 20 million in development incentives to support the redevelopment.
