ERNST & YOUNG LLP LEASES ENTIRE 6TH
FLOOR OF WESTBROOK BUILDING IN
FORT WORTH, Texas – Ernst & Young LLP has leased the entire sixth floor of The Westbrook building located on the west end of Sundance Square’s new plaza. With more than 8,600 square feet of usable office space, Ernst & Young will also have access to the beautiful balconies, with more than 1,900 square feet, overlooking the plaza.
“The Westbrook has received a lot of attention and as a result, is over sixty percent leased,” said Johnny Campbell, President and CEO of Sundance Square. “This is a great space with fantastic views of the new plaza so we know Ernst & Young will be very happy in this prime location.”
Robert Gamblin, senior leasing representative, and Bill Booker, Director of Leasing with Sundance Square negotiated the deal with Glenn Dyke, Phil Puckett, and Blake Lloyd of CBRE.
“EY is happy to start the new year off with the exciting news that we will be relocating atop The Westbrook building in Sundance Square, Fort Worth’s premier, downtown retail and entertainment development,” said Craig Stone, Fort Worth Office Managing Partner. “Our new office will be a convenient location featuring the latest technology for providing world-class service to our clients. This energetic work environment will also be an attractive incentive for the talented professionals we are seeking to hire this year.”
The Westbrook is named after the historic seven-story Westbrook Hotel built in the early 1900s, which closed in 1969 and was demolished in 1978. It stands six stories tall and encompasses more than 81,000 square feet including 12,393 square feet of retail space. The ground floor of the building includes an office lobby on Houston Street and retail space fronting Houston, 3rd and 4th Streets, as well as the plaza space to the east. Starbuck’s relocated to The Westbrook in November and Taco Diner will open this spring. The façade includes a handsome mix of granite, limestone, brick, and decorative aluminum taking inspiration from several historic downtown buildings including the Blackstone Hotel and the Western Union Building.
Sundance Square is a vibrant, award-winning entertainment district spanning 35 blocks in downtown Fort Worth. The multi-use development attracts more than 10 million visitors each year and in November 2013 opened a one-acre outdoor plaza. Two new buildings flank several restaurants, retail shops, water features, entertainment areas, four 32-foot umbrellas, and covered seating in the new Sundance Square Plaza.
