Dallas-based developer Harwood International is gearing up for another high-rise project.

The company unveiled plans for Harwood No. 15, a 23-story office building located just north of downtown Dallas, the Dallas Morning News reported.

Positioned on Wolf Street near Harry Hines Boulevard, close to the Dallas North Tollway entrance within the expansive Harwood mixed-use district, the 340,000-square-foot tower is just one of several of the region’s limited number of speculative office projects announced this year.

Designed by Japan’s Kengo Kuma & Associates in collaboration with Dallas-based Corgan – the same architects behind Harwood No. 14, completed in June – the glass and metal-clad tower is expected to offer spa-like amenities, including saunas, steam rooms, and a cold plunge. 

The building will also feature a conferencing center, fitness facilities, and an expansive rooftop park spanning almost half an acre. Additionally, a ground-floor restaurant is part of the development plan.

Harwood International President Oliver Barbier-Mueller expressed confidence in the collaboration between Kengo Kuma & Associates, Corgan, and Harwood’s in-house teams, emphasizing their successful partnership on the recently completed Harwood No. 14. The latter building, standing just blocks away, is already 76 percent leased, a notable achievement amid challenges faced by many North Texas office buildings in securing tenants.

With a strategic focus on expanding available space in response to high demand (with Harwood International’s existing buildings north of downtown over 90 percent leased), the new project signals the developer’s commitment to meeting the growing needs of the market. 

Major tenants such as S2 Capital, Haynes Boone, and O’Melveny & Myers have already committed to Harwood No. 14.

The broader area north of downtown Dallas has become a hotspot for development activity. Other notable projects include KDC’s 30-story tower overlooking Klyde Warren Park, set to house Bank of America’s main Dallas office, and Hunt Realty and Hillwood’s nearly $500 million campus on Field Street, accommodating a 5,000-person office for financial firm Goldman Sachs.
