Historic Building in Heart of Innovation District Hits Market

The Oilwell Supply Building, constructed in 1923, should be attractive to investors or developers looking for creative and tech-oriented tenants.


A West End landmark building that was built in the 1920s and that has housed 21st-century tech and creative firms is back on the market.

Sitting in the heart of the West End — home to Dallas’ Smart Cities initiative — the five-story, 70,000-square-foot Oilwell Supply Building should be attractive to investors and developers who are looking for properties in the sought-after district of downtown Dallas.

Real estate firm JLL is marketing the building on Lamar Street at Munger Avenue in the 68-acre West End historic district. It is owned by a Dallas business partnership. The building was renovated in 1999 by a previous owner.

Tenants include Mesa Design Group, professional presentation items retailer gdfw, polo equipment maker Texas Polo, and D2 Architecture.


The Oilwell Supply Building sits across the street from the historic seven-story, 237,000-square-foot West End Marketplace building that Granite Properties is transforming into a restaurant and office complex called Factory Six03. It was built in 1903 as a bakery and warehouse complex.

Factory Six03 is the site where Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas is leasing 25,000 square feet of space for an innovation center. Blue Cross has detailed its plans for the $2.5 million renovation that will sit on the sixth and seventh floors of the building.

The West End is home to the Dallas Innovation District, announced last summer by the Dallas Innovation Alliance. It serves as a living lab to showcase what an area would be like once smart elements are incorporated into it.

DIA is a public-private partnership dedicated to the design and execution of the smarts cities plan in Dallas.
