FORT WORTH -- Fort Worth law firm Shannon, Gracey, Ratliff & Miller has become the first office tenant to lease in Sundance Square's new Commerce Building under construction at Third and Commerce streets.

Shannon Gracey will move this fall from 777 Main, formerly the Carter Burgess Plaza, after 13 years.

"Shannon Gracey is honored that Sundance Square has partnered with us on its new centerpiece for downtown Fort Worth," said Rich Lowe, managing partner of Shannon Gracey. "Consistent with our other downtown offices throughout the state, the Commerce Building will be the ideal location for us to continue to provide practical legal solutions for our business and individual clients in Texas and beyond."

The firm will take up about 36,000 square feet, or the top three floors of the five-story Commerce Building at 420 Commerce Street. The offices on the fourth and fifth floors have terraces on the north and south ends of the building.

"Interest in the Commerce Building, as well as The Westbrook and The Cassidy, has been extremely strong from day one," said Johnny Campbell, Sundance Square president and CEO. "We will continue to sign leases throughout the rest of the year, which is a testament to the popularity and demand of the buildings in Sundance Square."

Del Frisco's Grille has leased 9,000 square feet in the Commerce between two floors, and Shannon Wynne's Bird Café has leased 3,883 square feet and another 2,586 square feet in the adjoining Land Title Building, built in 1889. Together, the Commerce and Land Title buildings have 83,000 square feet of space, of which 61,000 square feet is leasable.
