DALLAS—In 2000, downtown Dallas had less than 200 residents. In slightly more than 15 years, its population has grown to more than 45,000 residents within the downtown’s 15 districts (approximately 10,000 of those in the core) and a daytime workforce of 150,000 in the urban core alone.

The Drever, formerly the First National Bank of Dallas building at 1401 Elm St., is located on an entire city block at Elm Street, Pacific Avenue, Akard Street and N. Field Street in the Main Street District. Plans include multifamily, hotel, retail, restaurants, office, spa and parking. The 50-story 1.5-million-square-foot skyscraper is designed to offer a residential and boutique hotel option with public and private spaces.
