Commercial real estate firm NAI Robert Lynn has secured an 8,986-square-foot, long-term office lease for investment banking firm Estrada Hinojosa. The company’s move to Tower Plaza of the Americas, an amenity-rich property in the heart of downtown Dallas, will be the first relocation in its 29-year history. NAI Robert Lynn Executive Vice President Jayson Montoya represented Estrada Hinojosa in the deal. Kim Brooks, Laney Underwood, and Justin Miller of Transwestern represented the landlord, M-M Properties.
Tower Plaza of the Americas, located at 600 N. Pearl Street, will serve as Estrada Hinojosa’s corporate headquarters. The firm provides creative financial solutions to clients across the country, specializing as municipal advisors and bond underwriters. Noé Hinojosa, an investment banker, and Robert Estrada, a bond attorney, opened the firm in 1992 at Comerica Bank Tower, less than a mile from its new, larger location.
“We started the company in downtown Dallas, and we’re committed to staying here,” said Hinojosa, the firm’s chairman, president and CEO. “At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies were moving their offices out of downtown, but the location is crucial to our business. As our company continues to grow, this was an ideal time to expand our footprint. We’re thrilled this long-term commitment allows us to remain in Dallas, offering a larger space for our more than 20 employees in this location.”
Tower Plaza of the Americas, which boasts over one million square feet of office space, includes an updated atrium with an urban garden, water features, on-site fitness center, and over 132,000 square feet of retail including 21 dining options.
“We are happy to see clients like Estrada Hinojosa stay committed to downtown Dallas,” Montoya said. “After a year of uncertainty, it seems like many people can see ‘the light at the end of the tunnel’ and it is encouraging to see companies making long-term real estate decisions during this time. Companies are returning to the office and evaluating their space requirements, and it seems that many clients are making adjustments to meet their needs now and in the future.”
