McCASLIN ASSOCIATES serving as the Architect of Record helped turn this idea into reality. South Side on Lamar is now a new city center with over 400 loft apartments, shops, restaurants, and a nightclub. The enormously successful Adaptive Reuse of this building was showcased in the magazine Texas Architect and at the 1999 American Institute of Architects (AIA) National Convention.

South Side on Lamar

Adaptive Reuse

This grand historic building was built in 1909 for Sears and Roebuck as their catalog divisionís distribution and warehouse center. It is strategically located at the edge of downtown Dallas.

In the mid-1990s a developer acquired this 1,100,000 square foot property from Sears with the idea of turning the building into loft apartments.
