Designed by Dales Young Foster and Harwood K. Smith, 1600 Pacific Opened in 1964 as the 5th tallest building in Dallas. The building extends the full width of the block, allowing the pedestrian passage through the main lobby from Pacific Avenue to Elm Street. Notably, the building originally featured an innovative motor bank, "Teller-Vision," and was the first example of an automated teller system. The north and south curtain walls originally housed a lighting system where each window could be individually controlled to display a message or image, making it the world's largest economic sign board at the time.

Rehabilitation Project

1600 Pacific was converted from its original use as offices into a hotel and residential tower. The building's classic mid-century exterior materials were all repaired and restored, including brick, colored aluminum panels, and the aluminum and glass curtain wall system. Historic features in the lobby were repaired or restored, including storefronts, terrazzo floors, marble paneling, and planting beds and reflecting pools. Amenity spaces were added to support to both sets of building users, including two roof deck pools.
