DALLAS - An overhaul of the 400 S. Record building — formerly known as the Belo Building — will bring the 1980s high-rise up to date for new office space.
“We love the design of the building and the shape,” said Thomas Hartland-Mackie, whose family business bought the 17-story granite and glass tower located near the Dallas Omni Hotel. “We want the building to be engaged more with the street.
Work crews are already gutting the insides of the 235,000-sf building, which previously housed operations for media company Belo Corp. Belo was the parent company of The Dallas Morning News until Belo was split into two companies.
Hartland-Mackie, whose grandfather founded the worldwide firm City Electric Supply, plans to occupy about half of the tower with some of his family’s businesses. The rest of the building will be rented to other tenants.
Construction should be finished by mid-2016.
