AT&T Discovery District, the transformation of AT&T’s global headquarters into an immersive, mixed-use destination, has completed after five years in the making in downtown Dallas. The project is a redevelopment of a corporate campus that allows for new growth in the city’s core.
The project includes restaurants, retail, office space, and free public WiFi. With the goal of highlighting AT&T’s values, a unique architectural experience was created that blurs the boundaries between the physical and digital realms. A matrix of fully connected digital platforms is integrated into the buildings and landscape to allow for immersive take-over moments of lighting, audio, and creative media content.
Among AT&T Discovery District’s immersive technological experiences are The Globe, a 30-foot-tall mirrored dome covered with 300,000 LEDs that invites visitors to walk inside for an interactive light and sound experience; the Media Wall, a 104-foot-tall, 9,300-sf display that wraps the building at the corner of Akard and Jackson Streets that brings digital art and media to life in 6K resolution; and the AT&T Experience Store, located just below the media wall, which allows people to discover new ways to watch and access a range of immersive experiences. The project also includes 16 restaurant attractions and two high-volume bars.
The Plaza provides green space in the form of The Grove, a treelined outdoor seating area, and the lawn. 5G+ and WiFi are available throughout The Plaza.
At&T Discovery District is powered 100% by wind energy. Other sustainability features includes the use of a smart irrigation and rain water harvesting system, widened sidewalks to promote walking, and onsite recycling and composting.
