Home to some of the most popular office complexes in all of Dallas, space along the North Central Expressway corridor fits a wide variety of industries and companies and, therefore, offers a wide range of sizes and rents around the $25 SF range. The majority of the space is traditional Class B and, due to the booming DFW economy, availability has slimmed in recent years. A few buildings also feature Class A space as well.
While Central Expressway certainly sees its fair share of rush hour traffic, commuters in the area have access to DART’s Mockingbird Station which is ideally located for most of the businesses along Central Expressway. It’s extremely convenient for workers to park and ride their way to the office, skipping the traffic altogether by way of light rail. With a variety of dining and entertainment options surrounding Mockingbird Station, working near North Central Expressway combines convenience and amenities that make it so useful in attracting talent.
