Development plans move ahead for vacant North Dallas office campus

The Forest Lane office center that was EDS’ longtime headquarters will be used for medical offices, new residential.

By Steve Brown — August 11, 2021

A vacant North Dallas office campus will be redeveloped to add housing and medical office space.

Centurion American Development Group has contracted to purchase the 20-acre former CompuCom Systems headquarters on Forest Lane west of U.S. Highway 75.

The old business campus, which is surrounded on three sides by housing, has been empty for more than five years.

Centurion American Development had planned to convert the empty eight-story tower at the heart of the property into residential condominiums.

But after meeting with homeowners in the area, the developer will use the building for medical office space instead — something allowed with current zoning. The office building is just west of the huge Medical City hospital complex.

“We’re going to go ahead and close the sale and develop with the zoning we have,” said Mehrdad Moayedi, Centurion American CEO. “I’m building 250 units of age-restricted senior housing next to the office building and about 65 or 70 single-family home lots.”

Centurion American plans to complete its purchase by the end of the year and is already designing the new neighborhood and offices

The Forest Lane office building was the longtime headquarters of Electronic Data Systems.

Many of the houses that surround the former EDS campus were built on land that was once part of the data processing firm’s Dallas headquarters, which was built on the site of an old golf course.
