at Plaza of the Americas


Dallas – Nov. 9, 2020 – CBRE announces that Thompson Coe, a nationally recognized law firm, has renewed their 69,130 square foot office lease at Plaza of the Americas at 700 N. Pearl Street in downtown Dallas. Thompson Coe has occupied floors 23-25 since 2002.


Thompson Coe made the decision to sign the multi-year lease extension because of the central location, the ability to modernize their space and the high concentration of amenities within the building.  


“We wanted to identify the best location for our business to thrive” said Shawn Phelan, Chair of the Firm’s Management Committee, “after reviewing our options, it was clear that staying in the Plaza of the Americas would allow us to both meet the needs of our clients and help us create a space that would attract and retain top talent.”


Thompson Coe is recognized for its civil litigation capabilities, expertise in insurance law and diverse group of attorneys. Founded in Dallas in 1951, the firm has expanded to five offices across Texas, Louisiana, and Minnesota. Their Dallas office serves as their largest location nationally.


Steps away from the DART Pearl Street Station in the Dallas Arts District, Plaza of the Americas is a premier mixed-use development containing two 25-story office towers. The recently refurbished Marriott City Centre, numerous retail and restaurant options, and an indoor urban garden are all connected by a 13-story glass atrium, bringing every amenity today’s occupants desire within footsteps.


M-M Properties, in partnership with Invesco Real Estate, a global real estate investment manager, owns the buildings.


“We know there are a lot of options in the market and are happy that after evaluating the options, Thompson Coe recognized the value in remaining at Plaza of the Americas. We greatly appreciate Thompson Coe’s continued interest and confidence in this location,” said Joel McCarty, Principal with M-M Properties.
