As the SMU campus has expanded, the Real Estate Department of Management and Leasing has continued to flourish. Starting with the purchase of single family homes, the department has grown to include residential, retail, and office properties.
Our residential properties include over 40 single family homes and duplexes. Reserved for SMU faculty and staff, these properties are conveniently located within walking distance to campus, shopping, and entertainment. The majority of these homes adjoin the east side of campus on Fondren and McFarlin. Residents enjoy the safety of University Park along with access to the highly regarded Highland Park Independent School District. Residential homes are available in a variety of sizes, from 1,000 to 4,800 square feet.
Our retail properties include some of the most popular shops and eateries on Mockingbird Lane. Historic Park Cities Plaza is home to community favorites such as La Madeleine, Pokey-O's, and CVS Pharmacy along with many specialty stores for one-stop-shopping.
Our primary office property is Expressway Tower located in east campus, at SMU Blvd and Central Expressway (I-75). With fifteen stories and over 190,000 square feet of office space, Expressway Tower enjoys the historical significance of once being home to the Dallas Cowboys. We also lease a limited amount of small office space north of Expressway Tower.
The Real Estate Department of Management and Leasing is located in suite 160 of Expressway Tower.
