Developer Granite Properties has announced several leases totaling more than 70,000 square feet at its office tower at Park Seventeen in Uptown Dallas, including 26,874 square feet leased by Colliers International on the ninth floor.

Located at 1717 McKinney, the tower is part of one of the area’s largest mixed-use projects. In January 2009, it became the first office building in Dallas to be pre-certified by the U.S. Green Building Council at an LEED Gold level. Colliers is pursuing the Gold level for its ninth-floor quarters.

“Colliers’ decision to move downtown is yet another example of the continuing momentum we are experiencing this year,” Downtown Dallas, Inc. president and CEO John Crawford said when announcing the news.

Colliers was represented by brokers Hunter Blanks and Charlie Morris. Jim Kirchhoff and Robert Jimenez represented Granite.

“We are proud of our continued commitment to the Dallas community,” managing director of Colliers’ Dallas office Mark Noble said in a statement.

On a worldwide basis, Colliers manages more than 1 billion square feet and has revenue of $1.6 billion.
