A group of property owners joined efforts more than 20 years ago to improve an area that suffered from crime and badly decaying infrastructure, now known as Uptown Dallas. The property owners in this community agreed to pay 2 percent more in taxes over time so that improvements could be made to the area.

Today Uptown Dallas is bursting with new development and is now one of the most exciting upscale areas for young professionals to live, work, shop and play. City Bank was notified in the summer of 2014 of a premier vacant first-floor lease space at 2525 McKinnon Street, located directly across the street from the famous Crescent Hotel where celebrities have been known to stay.

Parkhill recently helped the bank open its newest and most upscale branch that features a deluxe style reflective of the premier services the bank offers. The suite includes a boardroom, teller line, private offices, open desk space, restrooms, a workroom and breakroom, and luxurious lounge seating groupings. Finish upgrades to the suite included modern paint selections, rich wood floors, and opulent carpet tiles.

City Bank commissioned artist, Rebekah D. Campbell, to paint nine works including a set of pieces specifically created to represent the building at 2525 McKinnon Street.  The teller line displays an eye-catching art feature created from a handcrafted antiqued mirror, detailed with an abstracted windmill blade design characterizing the iconic City Bank logo.

The bank is fully accessorized with dazzling embellishments purposefully placed to add luster and depth to the space.  The furniture showcases custom applied upholsteries including rich velvets, natural leather, and lustrous black pony hides.  A light feature, comprised of 11 luminous crystal pendants, separates a lounge area from an open desk space and can be seen at night from the bustling streets of Uptown Dallas.
