New Life for Old Downtown Dallas Highrises

Commerce office tower — vacant for 25 years — is about to begin a new life
as a hotel.
So is its 18-story neighbor at 1700 Commerce, which opened in 1923 as the
Lewisville-based NewcrestImage is redeveloping the buildings into three
downtown hotels with more than 400 rooms.
Work has already begun on the smaller building, which will become a
176-room Hampton Inn & Suites hotel, part of the Hilton brand. It is
scheduled to open in first quarter 2016.
Construction will start in about 60 days at Mercantile Commerce, once the
home of Mercantile National Bank.
