Over 30 years ago in 1984, Rolex constructed its landmark building in Dallas. This building is Rolex’s dedicated servicing facility in the US and is very iconic and located uptown as Uptown’s first office building.
Slated to open Winter of 2016, Rolex recently broke ground and will move their original servicing facility to a seven story mid-rise building which occupies 138,857 square feet on a city block adjacent to its original landmark building constructed in 1984. The new building will then be dedicated as the, “Rolex Building” and the original building will be renamed, “One Harwood”.
The new Rolex Building was designed in conjunction with global real estate firm Harwood International and Tokyo-based Kengo Kuma & Associates.
According to Hardwood International founder and CEO Gabriel Barbier-Mueller, “Dallas is known for its award-winning architecture but there are no buildings to date in the city designed by a Japanese architect”.
Master landscape architect Sadafumi Uchiyama designed the building’s Japanese-inspired tiered garden that features rampart stone walls at the base of the building, reflecting pools and cascading waterfalls spilling over the sides.
Just from the rendering of what the NEW Rolex building in Dallas will look like, it has a very peaceful and calm feel for such a massive corporate building. Such a departure and incredible evolution from the original Rolex building in Dallas. This new building provides modern day cutting edge architect blended with innovative and peaceful greenery to highlight its progression.
