The Crescent Announces Eight Leases, from UBS to JPMorgan Chase to an Investment Firm behind ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’

The noted mixed-use development in Uptown Dallas has announced 81,860 square feet of total leases, including four new leases and four renewed leases signed by existing tenants.

Tony Click, VP of Leasing for Crescent Real Estate, says adding "the twist of move-in-ready spec suites" has proven to be successful.

The Crescent—a 1.3 million-square-foot postmodern office, hotel, and retail complex in Uptown Dallas—has renewed four leases and completed several new ones as the city continues to navigate the future of office.

For The Crescent, that future lies both in retaining its current high-profile tenants and attracting new ones, including those behind the 81,860 square feet of total leases announced today.

“The eight leases are a juxtaposition of renewals of long-time customers and new leases with the twist of move-in-ready spec suites that have proved to be very successful,” said Tony Click, VP of Leasing for Crescent Real Estate LLC, in a statement.
