Building to Be Renamed Bank of America Tower
FORT WORTH (February 13, 2017) – Sundance Square announced Bank of America will lease three full floors of commercial office space in Sundance Square Tower 2 with additional plans to open a financial center on the ground level of the building, which will be renamed the Bank of America Tower in Sundance Square.
Specific to the North Texas market, the Sundance Square location supports Bank of America’s overall growth strategy and improves office utilization. Approximately 180 employees will relocate from other locations in this new 68,000 square foot space.
Additionally, Bank of America has plans for a 4,000 square-foot financial center, which will be constructed on the first level of the building sometime in 2018, creating a new destination for clients to access the financial advice they need to achieve their financial goals. This new addition to the front of the tower will extend to the sidewalk and adds square footage to the building.
“We are excited to welcome Bank of America to Sundance Square. One of the most visible pieces of this addition will be the change in the building perspective, adding a retail bank to the ground level that will extend to the sidewalk will enhance the entire block,” stated Johnny Campbell. “As a world-class company, we are proud Bank of America has chosen Sundance Square as a hub to conduct business and serve downtown Fort Worth.”
The name of the building and the addition of the Bank of America name on the Commerce Street side should occur mid-year. Located at 301 Commerce Street between Second and Third Streets, the 38-story building opened in 1984. The building is home to some of Fort Worth’s leading companies. In addition, Merrill Lynch, currently occupying space in Sundance Square Tower 1, will move to the Bank of America Tower.
“Fort Worth is an important growth market for Bank of America,” said Mike Pavell Fort Worth Market President, Bank of America. “We are pleased to be the anchor tenant at the tower, giving us the opportunity to co-locate our Merrill Lynch, U.S. Trust, Business Banking, Global Banking & Markets and Retail teams so they can have stronger collaboration in better serving our clients while ensuring responsible growth to our company.”
