Uptown Dallas Office Tower on Mckinney Avenue Getting an Upgrade


Owners of a 1980s Uptown office tower are about to start a revamp of the high-rise.
Invesco Real Estate has owned the 13-story 3131 McKinney Ave. building for two years. Built in 1984, the 150,000-square-foot property is 90 percent leased.
Invesco, like other Dallas office owners, next month will start a redo of the building to "elevate the building's image within the market and significantly enhance the tenant experience," said Invesco's Chris Cleghorn. "We will be investing $2.25 million into the project commencing this December with completion targeted for March 2017."
Planned upgrades include a new entry, outside landscaping and lighting on McKinney Avenue.
"The parking garage will get completely remodeled elevator lobbies," Cleghorn said. "We will also be upgrading our tenant common areas to a higher quality building standard, including a remodeled elevator lobby, tenant corridor and restrooms."
Dallas design firm Staffelbach is handling the interior redos.
