Best Adaptive Re-Use Award

Best Adaptive Re-Use of an Existing Building in the Stemmons Corridor

With steady economic re-development underway in the Stemmons Corridor, in 2006 the SCBA started recognizing the best examples of adaptive re-use of existing buildings in our Corridor, most of which were built for warehouse and office uses in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s.  Each year a task force of SCBA Board volunteers selects a winner who is recognized at the SCBA Annual Meeting.  Now, with the dramatic growth of the Southwestern Medical District and Love Field Area, as well as the transformation of the Dallas Market Center, the Design District, and the Brook Hollow Industrial District, the market place is allowing the saving and renovation of many older existing buildings in the Stemmons Corridor. Take a look at some previous winners below and the interesting history behind the buildings selected.

2017 Winner: 1407 N. Riverfront Blvd.

SCBA  has  awarded  the  2017  Best  Adaptive  Re-Use  Award  to  Dallas  Design  Group Interiors, for their re-development of 1407 N. Riverfront Blvd.  Situated in the heart of the Design  District,  the  building  was  originally  built  in  1950  to  be  used  as  an  industrial warehouse.  Dallas Design Group Interiors purchased the property in 2015 and completed the renovation in the summer of 2017. After initially engaging an outside contractor and architect, Dallas Design Group opted to renovate and design the building themselves. When DDG purchased 1407 N. Riverfront Blvd it was vacant and in poor condition. The interior and exterior of the building was outdated and in need of some major updating. DDG spent substantial time and resources remodeling the interior and exterior of the building and now it’s one of the most beautiful showrooms in the area.
