American Airlines Old Headquarters at DFW Airport is Up for Grabs

July 19, 2019

With construction winding down on its new office digs, Fort Worth-based American Airlines is peddling its old headquarters near DFW International Airport.

Commercial real estate firm Transwestern has been hired to sell the 3-building, almost 1.4 million square-foot office campus on Amon Carter Boulevard south of Airport Freeway.

"This offering presents an outstanding opportunity for a user or investor to acquire an ideally located office campus with excellent recruiting access to both Dallas and Fort Worth," Transwestern managing director Mike Hardage said in a statement. "The property has been extremely well maintained and features a unique underground pedestrian tunnel that connects all three buildings.

"Furthermore, the Trinity Railway Express commuter train and station are only a 14-minute walk and offer 30-minute rides to both Dallas and Fort Worth."

 The American Airlines property includes more than six acres for additional construction.

Most of the buildings on the 40-acre campus date to the 1980s and 1990s.

"The campus is a wonderful opportunity for a visionary investor or user to create something truly special and unique in this region," said Hardage.

The global carrier has already started move into its new headquarters complex on the west side of State Highway 360.

The new campus has four 7-story buildings that cost more than $350 million.

American Airlines recently started development of a  $250 million hospitality center complete with a 600-room hotel and a conference and training center on the new site.

"The campus is a wonderful opportunity for a visionary investor or user to create something truly special and unique in this region," said Hardage. "I look forward to watching the evolution of this iconic DFW asset."
