Jackson Walker represented Live Nation Entertainment Inc. in its conversion of an empty warehouse located in the Dallas Design District into a 1,000 capacity entertainment venue named The HiFi. The building, which is owned by Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, is a 25,000-square-foot flexible design space near the American Airlines Center. The venue serves as an additional location for Live Nation to bring headline acts looking for an intimate location or local bands about to break, but can also be booked for corporate events, private concerts, weddings, private parties, and other events.
Jackson Walker attorneys William S. Dahlstrom, Jonathan G. Vinson, and Shannon Field Quine worked with Live Nation and Mark Cuban’s legal team to resolve the various issues involved in bringing The HiFi to completion, including the permitted use and use classification, dance floor calculation, parking ratios, remote and remote shared parking agreements, and a Dance Hall License with a possible Late Hours permit in process.
