The development of a 1.5-acre park at NorthEnd — the mixed-use community where Goldman Sachs is building its Dallas campus — is expected to begin next year, according to a state filing.

A project of Hunt Realty Investments, NorthEnd will include an 800,000-square-foot building with two wings on North Field Street and an urban park at full build-out. A company spokesperson declined to comment on the park project.

“One of the largest developments proposed in Dallas, the 11-acre North End project stitches together nearby neighborhoods of Victory, a primarily residential area and home to the American Airlines Arena; Uptown, a business district; and Downtown Dallas, by mixing together a variety of uses, including residential, hospitality, office, retail, and [food and beverage]. The Ross Perot Museum of Natural History is located directly adjacent to the site, adding a cultural hub to the mixed-use development,” reads the website describing the NorthEnd development.

The park is designed “as the conceptual heart of the project — forming an urban arboretum that links the nearby Katy Trail and Klyde Warren Park.” The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation filing lists an estimated construction cost of $21.5 million and a completion date of October 2026

Meanwhile, a 75-foot-deep hole is being dug at the site, and more than 440,000 cubic yards of dirt are being removed as workers build an underground parking garage to accommodate 2,000 vehicles, The Dallas Express previously reported.

“We have been operating in Dallas for more than 50 years,” John Waldron, president and COO of Goldman Sachs, said in a news release. “This state-of-the-art new campus further demonstrates our commitment to Dallas and is a testament to the incredible talent and strong client base in the region. We look forward to Goldman Sachs’ vibrant future in Dallas and are excited to continue partnering with the local community for many years to come.”

The office building is designed by New York-based Henning Larsen Architects “to support the health and wellness” of Goldman Sachs’ employees. It will include a fitness center, cafe, child-care center, conference spaces, and access to outdoor terraces and gardens.

“Luring the biggest names in business is becoming business as usual in Dallas, but this is a major moment for our city,” Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson said in the release. “Goldman Sachs is the premier name in finance and investment banking. The expansion of this global brand in our city center is a remarkable sign of how far Dallas has come in recent years as we have focused on attracting talent and businesses by prioritizing public safety, improving quality of life, and reducing our tax rate.”

Expected to be complete in late 2027, the new Goldman Sachs building will accommodate more than 5,000 people.

Based in New York, Goldman Sachs employs about 4,000 in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Its Dallas office is the company’s second largest in the U.S.
