CityBizList Dallas: Fitzhugh Central to Become “CBS RADIO Tower”

CBS Radio Tower

Gaedeke Group to make improvements to building which houses CBS RADIO DFW’s six local stations

Gaedeke Group and CBS RADIO Dallas- Fort Worth announced today that the 12-story office tower located at 4131 N. Central Expressway in Dallas previously known as Fitzhugh Central will be renamed CBS RADIO Tower. 

The building houses CBS RADIO Dallas-Fort Worth’s six local radio stations as well as the Texas State Network across three floors.  The new name will be reflected in interior and exterior signage.

“We’re pleased to share our name with the building that’s been our home for the past 10 years,” said Brian Purdy, senior vice president and market manager for CBS RADIO Dallas-Fort Worth, “and we’re looking forward to additional changes that will make for an even more positive experience for our visitors and employees.”

In a long-term lease renewal, CBS RADIO has added more than 11,000 square feet of space, much of which will accommodate a first-floor reception area and broadcast studio. Both will be adjacent to the building lobby, which features Gaedeke's recently installed artwork, the Icons of Dallas. 

"Clearly CBS RADIO Dallas-Fort Worth recognizes the value of Fitzhugh Central," says Belinda Dabliz, vice president of leasing for Dallas-based Gaedeke. "It’s the day-to-day service provided over the years by our property management team, led by Kathy Cater, that closed this deal.”

Gaedeke has also retained Pat McGill of Magill Associates, P.A., to design an architecturally distinct "breezeway" to deflect wind and rain and enhance the walkway from the 172,945-sf CBS Radio Tower's parking garage to its main entrance. Breezeway construction will begin soon.
