​​​DALLAS - With abatement and remediation near completion, Dallas developer Jack Matthews plans to get underway on the construction of the historic Dallas High School, which will transform the longtime vacant building into an office and retail building.

Matthews said construction on the four-story, 109,000-sf building, which has been undergoing abatement and remediation work to prepare it for the construction phase. 

Matthews expects to begin construction work on the site by the end of the month.

In all, the redevelopment of the 109-year-old building at 2218 Bryan St. will include 66,000 sf of office space and 26,000 sf of retail space.

Chicago-based Perkins+Will has already signed a lease for 35,000 sf of office space. The architecture firm will take the full third floor of the building and part of the second floor.

Earlier this year, Matthews Holdings Southwest Inc. and an affiliated limited partnership received $6.2 million of eligible tax increment financing revenues through the Deep Ellum TIF District for the project.​​
