Woodbine assembled a strong design team to renovate a former downtown department store into a state-of-the-art office building for Dallas’ public transportation agency. The project tapped Woodbine’s skills as an owner’s representative and project manager. The headquarters encompassed the build-out of approximately 438,000 square feet, which Woodbine accomplished in budget and two months ahead of schedule.

Lesson Learned - Politics can be as time-consuming as the development process. Working on behalf of a controversial public agency means you’ll need a thick skin to get the job done.
