What's holding Ross Perot Jr. back from developing Dallas' tallest tower


Ross Perot Jr. only has one rendering of a proposed 70+ story office tower and it's sitting in the headquarters of his new family office, awaiting the perfect tenant.

"We need a client," Perot, chairman of Hillwood and The Perot Cos., told the Dallas Business Journal."This is a 1 million-square-foot build-to-suit and is a special purpose project."
The development site at the corner of Field Street and Griffin Street is ready to go with Hillwood Urban, a division of Hillwood, getting the tract ready for construction.

Perot said his leasing team sees a few tenants circling the North Texas market looking for this kind of space. The design of the tower was done by British architect Sir Norman Foster.

And this project could be a special part of history.
