Harwood Center is a skyscraper at 1999 Bryan Street in Dallas, Texas. The building rises 483 feet (147 m). It contains 36 floors, and was completed in 1982. Harwood Center currently stands as the 21st-tallest building in the city. The architectural firm who designed the building was WZMH Architects, the firm who designed the CN Tower in Toronto.HistoryOriginally named the Olympia & York Tower after its Toronto-based developer Olympia & York Developments Ltd., the 780000sqft skyscraper is fronted with gray-white granite and single-pane black windows. Two of the corners are serrated to provide more corner offices. The building design features what looks like two separate connected towers. One is 34 stories and the other 36, with a vertical indention separating them, and a parking garage is built into the lower levels.Notably, the building was built over Federal Street which runs through a tunnel on the lower floors. The tower was built adjacent to the historic Dallas Cotton Exchange Building, which was demolished in 1994.ForeclosureIn 1993 the Olympia & York Tower joined two other prominent downtown skyscrapers in foreclosure, the 50-story First City Center on Elm Street and the 50-story Trammell Crow Center on Ross Avenue, following the savings and loan crisis of the late '80s and early '90s. Longtime real estate brokers said it was the first time that so many prominent downtown office towers had been posted for foreclosure. According to the foreclosure posting documents, the developers had defaulted on an $86.6 million loan held by Swiss Bank Corp. It was appraised on the Dallas County tax rolls at $66.4 million.
