Dallas city leaders, along with Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R), confirmed Tuesday that transportation company Uber Technologies has acquired office space in a new Deep Ellum development for as many as 3,000 new high-tech jobs with a $400 million annual payroll. Uber will move into The Epic, a new development by Westdale Real Estate and Investment on Pacific Avenue in Deep Ellum.
An attorney involved in the deal said future Uber plans also involve at least two other large parcels of land around The Epic for additional office buildings in the coming years, NBC 5's Ken Kalthoff first reported last week. According to attorney Jim DePetris, one of the parcels is the current location of the Lizard Lounge.
