Dallas Morning News: Harwood No. 14


Steve Brown / October 13, 2020 / The Dallas Morning News






Developer Harwood International has pulled the wraps off the next high-rise on the way just north of downtown Dallas.

The striking Harwood 14 office tower will be built on Harry Hines Boulevard near the Dallas North Tollway.

The 27-story project will be developer Harwood’s tallest office building and one of its most dramatic designs.

The outside of the tower will be clad in a unique finned wall system that the developer says is a first for Dallas.

Tokyo-based Kengo Kuma & Associates is the design architect for the high-rise, working with Dallas-based architects Corgan and HDF.

The building will have a two-story lobby, open air “pocket gardens” and a 17,000-square-foot rooftop garden. The ground floor will have 16,000 square feet for restaurants.

“We believe that the future tenants will appreciate the strong connections to the outside, with a big parklike terrace on Level 12, the outdoor feeling in the lobby and even two viewing balconies higher in the building,” Kengo Kuma, design architect, said in a statement. “Fresh air and light are essential, and our connection to nature is more important than ever.

“We believe that the space can be elegant and enriched by simple things such as beautiful sunlight and materials,” he said. “And with its openness, we believe that the building will be inviting.”
