Knoll moving into downtown Dallas' Arts District

An international furniture and fabrics firm is relocating its Dallas showroom to downtown’s Arts District.

Knoll Inc. is moving its local operations from Oak Lawn Avenue in the Design District to the One Arts Plaza tower on Routh Street.

The Pennsylvania-based company is leasing 10,000-square-feet on the ground floor of the 24-story building for its new showroom which will open in January.

The $150 million building includes retail, office and condominium space. Major office tenants in the project include 7-Eleven Inc. and law firm Thompson & Knight.

“Knoll is the leading contract furniture design company in the world; to have them move their regional office to One Arts Plaza is a great complement to the integrity of our own design,” developer Lucy Billingsley said in a statement.

Two additional towers are planned in the Arts Plaza project, which is at the east end of Flora Street.
