Munsch Hardt will move from floors 36, 38 and 39 to floors 40, 41 and 42 with architecture and design firm Gensler taking the reins on plans that will allow for the law firm’s continued growth and Pacific Builders tapped as the general contractor.
The firm has 50% more employees since it first made the move to Ross Tower, cataloging 176 employees along with record profit last year, and expects to move to the 77,009 square feet of new space in the fall of 2023.
Representing Munsch Hardt in the lease negotiations were Stream Managing Directors Craig Wilson and Dan Harris, Vice Chairman Randy Cooper, and Executive Vice President and Partner Tim Terrell.
“Starting this process in summer 2020 in the height of the pandemic required a lot of patience and creativity on all sides to ultimately develop what will be a very big win/win for both Munsch Hardt and Ross Tower,” said Wilson in a prepared statement.
HPI Real Estate Services & Investments’ Dallas Partner Hunter Lee, Vice President Ben Cuzen and Leasing Agent Luke Aviles represented the landlord, HPI, in the transaction.
HPI has recently scored other law firm victories for the 45-story tower located at 500 N. Akard St. The granite and glass building announced nearly 60,000 square feet in fresh leases between Steptoe & Johnson, Kessler Collins, Godwin & Bowman, and McGinnis Lochridge in May.
