Software firm to move regional headquarters to downtown Dallas


A Houston-based software firm has decided to move its North Texas regional office to downtown Dallas within a 34-story office tower, which has received major upgrades in the last few years.

Quorum Business Solutions Inc., which develops administrative software for the energy industry, plans to move into about 17,000 square feet at 717 Harwood in downtown Dallas.
The company plans to move from its current office at 1420 W. Mockingbird Lane near Dallas Love Field to its new city center office by the end of August.

This is one of the latest deals to land at the 34-story, 844,325-square-foot building, called 717 Harwood, after Austin-based World Class Capital Groupacquired the property in 2014, with plans to spend millions updating the former KPMG Centre building.

World Class Capital wanted to construct a robust workspace in an urban environment that would help attract and retain tenant's high-caliber talent, said Sheena Paul, COO of World Class Capital Group.

Last year, architecture firm HOK decided to move its Dallas office to the Harwood Street building. Other companies that have moved to the building since World Class Capital purchased the property include, Omnitracs, Active Networks, Kibo and Lanyon Solutions.
