The cornerstone of Deep Ellum


Built in 1888, The Continental Gin is so much more than just a historic landmark 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 a first-class, mixed-use building that includes unmatched flex work/office space, signature restaurants, a coffee shop, open green space and abundant surface parking. A true neighborhood destination. Welcome to CGB!

What was the Gin ?

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.
