At the Butler Brothers Building, the past grounds the spirit of our vision of the future. Built in 1910, our building was anchored in commerce and industry, serving as a mercantile warehouse for Chicago-based Butler Brothers & Co. under the mantles of the Ben Franklin five-and-dime franchise and later the Dallas Merchandise Mart. Its last iteration was that of office space for city employees and local businesses. This industrious momentum was lost for nearly four decades during which time the building was abandoned. What may seem like a loss was viewed as an opportunity for a renaissance by Alterra International, the building’s developer. Alterra International proudly converted this outstanding property into a space for forward thinking and creative living, carrying the torch into the future for prosperity and positive change for the downtown Dallas community.
The residences at the Butler Brothers Building have revitalized the urban fabric of downtown Dallas living. The units themselves are an interesting dialogue of old and new elements from the original maple and concrete flooring and exposed brick to imported tiles and mosaics, cabinetry, and quartz countertops. Contemporary living spaces are punctuated by award-winning, energy efficient appliances with brushed stainless steel finishes. There are numerous floor plans designed to accommodate a variety of needs.
The integrative lifestyle becomes reality through the unrivaled amenities for the residents of the Butler Brothers Building. One may work in our business center or our quiet room, allowing for focus and productivity.
