Strategically located on Lemmon Avenue, the former Braniff Operations and Maintenance Base was completed in October, 1958. Designed by famed architects William Pereira and Charles Luckman, the unique structure is a testimony to mid-century modernism. Having not invested any maintenance into the building since the last tenants hastily departed, the City of Dallas Department of Aviation is attempting to tear down a viable piece of aviation history. Eliminating this last piece of Braniff history is an affront to the hard working people that made aviation a fundamental industry at Dallas Love Field and the region. Please sign the petition to demand the City of Dallas cease demolition activity and allow existing bids to restore the building.
Too beautiful a structure to be destroyed. Let's preserve something from Braniff's colorful past.
Glad to see an economically viable adaptive reuse for this great example of Modernism is planned!
