The 17-story former Belo Building will undergo an extensive renovation as part of a rebranding that includes a Sharon Hage-created restaurant concept, sky garden atop the top floor of the building and a glass-walled lobby. The multimillion-dollar renovation at the building at 400 S. Record St. will also include significant upgrades to the entrances, a new fitness center and a new conference center. The building was sold to a new property owner last October. “We’re elevating a great downtown building by bringing modern aesthetics and amenities to an already great location,” said property owner Thomas Hartland-Mackie, CEO of City Electric Supply. As part of the redo, the building will be renamed 400 Record. Hartland-Mackie’s extensive art collection will be displayed in the two-story lobby, which will be avaliable for community events. Gensler is designing the renovation. Matt Schendle, JJ Leonard and Rena Chappell of Cushman & Wakefield of Texas Inc. are leasing the office building, which has a number of vacant floors. Construction is slated to start this summer on the renovations.
