California investment firm opens Dallas office north of downtown

A Los Angeles-based investment firm is opening an office in Dallas’ Uptown area.

Canyon Partners LLC, an alternative investments firm, is taking office space in the Harwood No. 2 building on McKinnon Street north of downtown Dallas.

The 30-year-old investment adviser also has offices in Hong Kong, London, New York, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo.

“Canyon Partners’ decision to open a Dallas office is a big win for the region, offering positive impacts within both the business community and the broader community,” Andy Leatherman, managing director of commercial property firm JLL, said in a statement. “The D-FW region has steadily grown over the last 10 years, consistently leading the nation in both job and population growth, and we are enthusiastic about Canyon’s continued success here.”

Leatherman and JLL’s Brad Selner negotiated the lease with Hannah Waidmann and Kelly Whaley of building owner Harwood International.

Harwood No. 2 is a 10-story office building just north of the Crescent.

Canyon Partners is taking more than 13,000 square feet of space in the property, according to planning documents filed with the state.

Developer Harwood International recently started work on a 27-story office tower on Harry Hines Boulevard near the entrance to the Dallas North Tollway. Dallas law firm Haynes and Boone is leasing 125,000 square feet in the tower with plans to move in in late 2023.

Harwood International has built eight office buildings in the 19-block Harwood District, which includes offices, retail and residential space. A new hotel is also under construction in the project.
