a Deep Ellum original,


now leasing: office  |  coworking  |  retail


The Continental Gin is so much more than just a historic building in Deep Ellum–it's a true icon of Dallas and the cornerstone from which Deep Ellum's history was built. What was once the largest manufacturer of cotton gins in the world is now an experiential office, retail, and neighborhood destination. The Continental Gin Building has reopened as an icon reimagined, featuring contemporary workspace for Deep Ellum professionals of all kinds and boasting boutique amenities that elevate CGB's 19th century charm for 21st century use.


The construction of the original Continental Gin Building was a spark that ignited the earliest boom of the neighborhood. This building's truly seen it all, and so many elements that have always made Deep Ellum and the CGB special have been woven into the fabric of this restoration. Now that the building's open again, Deep Ellum locals can discover new building-wide amenities, from creative lounge spaces to shared conference rooms, outdoor patio areas, a state-of-the-art VR Lab, coworking, and retail space. Tenants of CGB get to feel the magic of what happens when the past meets the future just by coming to work each day.
