A recently formed Dallas real estate brokerage firm has landed a contract for one of downtown Dallas' biggest office skyscrapers.

Fults Commercial LLC has been hired to lease the 60-story Comerica Bank Tower by building owner Metropolitan Real Estate Investors LLC.

 The 1.5 million-square-foot office high-rise at 1717 Main St. was built in 1987.

 The building - headquarters of Comerica Bank - is more than 80 percent leased with other tenants, including Andrews Kurth, K&L Gates, TM Advertising and ORIX.

 Steve Korn of building owner Metropolitan Real Estate Investors said Fults Commercial was chosen because founder "Tracy Fults has an extensive background in office leasing in the southwestern United States, and he is very familiar with the leasing opportunities in Dallas' Central Business District."

 Fults launched his independent brokerage company in September after working for six years in the Dallas office of Cushman & Wakefield.

 As part of the new Comerica Bank Tower leasing deal, downtown office leasing veteran Don Dowell joined Fults Commercial to handle leasing of the building.
