DALLAS—In an effort to preserve the character of the former Dallas Independent School District headquarters site at 3700 Ross Ave., investment firm Leon Capital Group has been working with the landmark commission during the last several months to identify the most historically relevant aspects of the existing building in order to incorporate them into the new design. As a result of those efforts, Leon Capital will preserve the main entrance facade and structure of the original building, and make it a fully functional aspect of the development.
