FORT WORTH-In a resounding win for the Downtown, Sundance Square’s trophy Carnegie will be sporting a 3,756-sf Comerica bank on its first floor and a 12,000-sf commercial banking group on its sixth. The spaces go live in early December, timed to coincide with the ribbon-cutting of the 280,000-sf building.

A Comerica spokesman says the search is underway for a leader of the Tarrant County headquarters office, an adjunct to the Dallas operation which has stood as the banking giant’s HQ since since August 2007. Fort Worth’s rise in prominence on the national level, its built-in wealth for investment and its strong undercurrent of doing business with its local players have made it almost imperative for businesses, like Comerica, to open shops in both cities although they’re commonly thought of as one by the outside world.

“Comerica is plugging into the Fort Worth community, which is a key method to do well in this city,” says Johnny Campbell, president and CEO of Sundance Square, the guardian company and owner of the 20-block Downtown and the Carnegie’s developer. The Comerica lease, inked with a minimum seven-year term, pushed the 16-story building at 421 W. Third St. over the 80% preleasing mark.
