Former Richards Group Building to Be Renovated, Rebranded as One West Village

Just north of downtown Dallas, one of the city’s most stand-out buildings is getting a new name along with some new internal looks.

The former headquarters of The Richards Group at 2801 North Central Expressway is being rebranded as One West Village and will begin undergoing renovations soon, according to multiple reports.

Dallas-based CRE company OliveMill Holdings is doing the renovation after acquiring the building last year in a partnership with Dallas’ Hunt Realty Investments and New York’s Angelo Gordon.

The 18-story, 240,000-square foot building was designed by Perkins&Will and built in 2015 to house The Richards Group’s HQ and its then-600+ employees. It features a signature peekaboo 3-story staircase atrium high up in the tower that catches the eye of countless drivers down below. (The Richards Group has itself rebranded as TRG and moved to Deep Ellum.)

“This is an iconic building on a major Dallas thoroughfare, and this redevelopment will update the building to provide companies the amenities needed to meet today’s office environment,” OliveMill founding partner Ryan McManigal said in a statement.

Gensler is designing the building’s refresh, which is slated to feature an updated lobby and first floor along with a new coffee shop, fitness center, tenant lounge, conference areas, a sprawling outdoor patio, and more.
