Three new office buildings are coming to CityLine in Richardson after developer KDC announced Sept. 21 plans to add 1.4 million square feet to the development.

The buildings, called Five Cityline, Six Cityline and Seven Cityline, will include 18, 13 and 15 stories, respectively. They will join the 2.6 million square feet of office space and 200,000 square feet of restaurant, retail and entertainment space already present in the development, according to a KDC news release.

Current corporate tenants include State Farm and Raytheon. CityLine also includes apartments and hotel space. According to the release, more than 4,000 residents are within walking distance of the development.

“CityLine is one of the metroplex’s most successful urban, transit-oriented developments,” Walt Mountford, executive vice president of development for KDC, said in a statement. “These three new towers build upon the project’s success and will provide an exceptional opportunity for tenants seeking office space in an already established and thriving walkable community.”

Space in the buildings is already being marketed to prospective tenants, the release said. They can be customized to meet specific tenant needs and are available for prelease to large users, according to the release.


Aarica Mims, senior vice president and director of leading for KDC, said CityLine is ideal for employee retention and recruitment because the development provides “high-quality buildings with easy access to great amenities.”

“As an award-winning mixed-use development, CityLine checks all of these boxes,” she said in the release.

The buildings are being designed by Dallas-based architecture firm Corgan and Associates. They will have glass facades and will include state-of-the-art fresh-air filtration systems and touchless features, per the release. Parking will be located beneath the office space.
