DALLAS – The developers who spent $25 million revamping Oak Lawn's Centrum tower have put the two-building project on the market.
Quadrant Investment Properties LLC purchased the high-rise Centrum building at Oak Lawn Ave. and Cedar Springs Rd. in 2015.
Since then the investor has given the 1980s office and retail project a total redo with changes to the exterior and inside updates.
In addition, the investors bought the 13-story Park Creek Place office building next door to add to the project.
The buildings are 80 percent leased and together have more than a half million sf of space.

Its new home is on a five-acre lot with access to a parking garage with more than 800 spaces.

The existing terminal is to small for the projected growth and too small for agencies like Customs and Border Protection or Transportation security administration.
