Two-story office building planned in Oak Lawn

A busy Oak Lawn corner will soon be getting a new retail and office building.

American National Bank of Texas is building the two-story, 17,000-square-foot building at Oak Lawn Avenue and Brown Street. The property just west of the Melrose Hotel is now used for a parking lot.

Houston-based McCleary German Architects designed the brick building, which will be finished in early 2010.

"They are going to have about 8,000 to 9,000 square feet of space for lease in the building" along with American National Bank's facilities, said broker David Glasscock of Colliers International. "They wanted some extra space for when the bank grows that they could also lease to other businesses."
