The Shamrock Blog

Welcome to the Neighborhood!

HDR recently announced they plan to move their global headquarters to The Capitol District!  The engineering and architectural firm will be building on what is now a parking lot located between 11th and 12th Streets, Dodge and Capitol Avenue, bringing approximately 900 day time employees downtown.  The proposed headquarters will be between 18 and 20 stories and approximately 280,000 square feet.

Shamrock Development is very excited as we feel we can tailor some of our plans to complement HDR’s use and development of The Capitol District as a whole.
