Developers are buying a landmark East Dallas industrial building and plan to convert it into residential units.
Built in 1928, the two-story, 44,000-square-foot building is at Bryan Street and Carroll Avenue. The building, which was used as a bakery for decades, was designed by noted Dallas architect George Dahl.
Mrs Baird’s occupied the building until the early 1950s, when the company built a larger bakery on nearby North Central Expressway.
The building was later occupied by a fabric manufacturer.
Dallas apartment firm Perry Guest Cos. is teaming up with investor Ray Washburne to buy and redevelop the property, according to CEO Grant Guest.
“We don’t know yet how many units we can fit in the building,” Guest said. “That’s still a work in progress.
“We are closing before year end. We are going to bring it back to life. Really cool building.”
