New deal takes new building north of downtown to 85% leased.

Harwood International’s latest Uptown-area tower is filling up.

Developer Harwood International has landed another tenant for its latest Uptown-area office tower. The deal takes the just-completed Harwood No. 10 building on McKinnon Street to 85% leased.

Real estate firm Lurin is the latest company to take 13,000 square feet in the 22-story high-rise. Lurin is moving from the nearby Rosewood Court building.

“We are excited to make Harwood 10 our new corporate headquarters and to partner with Harwood International as they help us build our new state of the art headquarters,” Jon P. Venetos, Lurin’s founder and chief executive officer, said in a statement. “As Lurin continues to push further into the modern digital workplace, we needed a space that encourages collaboration while providing cutting-edge facilities and employee-oriented amenities.”

The real estate firm’s new office will be on the 17th floor of the Harwood No. 10 tower.

Robbie Baty and Travis Boothe of Cushman & Wakefield negotiated the lease with Kelly Whaley and Hannah Waidmann of Harwood International.

“Lurin’s 17th-floor sky terraces, with interactive green space, will provide the ultimate workplace competitive advantage,” Whaley said in a statement.

The Harwood No. 10 building has cantilevered upper floors with garden and terrace areas.

The new building includes 220,548 square feet of office space and more than 14,000 square feet of retail and restaurants.

Other businesses in the building include data center firm Cyrus One and law firm Reed Smith.

Harwood International is already working on its next office tower for the area just north of downtown Dallas.

The developer is working on plans for a 42-story office skyscraper at Caroline and Field streets next to Victory Park.
