DALLAS - A large Dallas office tenant is shutting down the operation, which will result in a big chunk of empty space in a downtown skyscraper.

Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co. leases almost 125,000 sf of office space in Ross Tower on Akard St.

The 152-year-old California-based insurance firm moved into Ross Tower almost a decade ago and at one time had about 400 people working in the downtown high-rise.

With recent restructuring of Fireman’s Fund by its owner, Allianz, the Ross Tower office is being eliminated.

The company is expected to maintain some presence in the Dallas market, just not with the Ross Tower office. Fireman’s Fund is one of the largest remaining insurance company offices downtown.

The 45-story Ross Tower has been for sale since earlier this year. The 1.1 million-sf skyscraper — built in the 1980s — was about 60 percent leased before Fireman’s Fund decided to close its office.
