DART acquired the land during construction of their light-rail line for the purpose of constructing and operating a future plaza that would connect Victory Station to American Airlines Center and the Victory Development.

Anland owns approximately three acres of property located north of and adjacent to the DART property and intends to develop it with a 350,000 square foot class “A” office building and 13,000 square feet of retail space.

Anland’s new development is estimated to employ 1,200 employees, and the impact to DART’s ridership is expected to be 180 new riders per day.
