Office space in downtown Fort Worth, historic Sundance Square is one in high demand real estate markets in the country. It created a need for new building. Occupancy in Sundance Square, including Wells Fargo Tower and the DR Horton Tower, exceeded 95 percent just three years ago. Sundance Square oversees more than two million square feet of commercial office space. Sundance Square has come to be known as the prestige location for the high quality office space in downtown Fort Worth.
The Carnegie is the first new building to be constructed in Sundance Square since 2002. The Carnegie has continued the tradition with terrific proximity to all of Sundance Square’s amenities, including 13 foot floor to deck ceiling heights and a grand two story GRG dome with columns at the interior first floor lobby. Located across from the Fort Worth Central Library on West Third, The Carnegie’s exterior had an unusual design, which had very tight tolerances due to the cast stone facade. The exterior framing also had many bump outs to give it that historical Fort Worth charm.
The Carnegie’s tight tolerances and the detailed framing at the exterior made the coordination between the glazing subcontractors, mason and Marek Brothers Systems very important and was very much a challenge. Work on The Carnegie Building began for Marek Brothers, May of 2007 and finished in December 2008. This building is a new landmark in the Sundance Square and reflects Marek Brothers Systems' commitment to bring excellent quality office and retail space.
