Brick & Mortar

The original Old Parkland site was 8.3 acres, but through the acquisition of adjacent property has since expanded to 9.5 acres. The master planned business campus includes buildings that complement the original and historic landmark structures. Recent additions also include The American Experiment, a unique collection of sculpture, statues and architectural features which pay tribute to the country’s founding fathers and principles upon which our nation was established.

In 2006, Crow Holdings purchased the original Parkland Hospital built in 1894, which sat vacant for over 20 years. We took great pride in preserving the historical landmark for the community as we renovated the building for our corporate headquarters. As we have continued to build on the site, a major effort was made to preserve and replant the trees affected by construction. Old Parkland was constructed over an underground spring. 500 gallons of ground water per minute is pumped from below North Campus, used to irrigate the entire campus.

The American Experiment

In addition to the construction of three landmark buildings – Parkland Hall, Commonwealth Hall and Oak Lawn Hall – the most recent expansion of the Old Parkland campus also includes an array of architectural features, art and sculpture which collectively are referred to as “The American Experiment.” The collection, designed to depict the ideals upon which our nation was founded, includes quotations carved in stone and inset into buildings and walkways, as well as larger than life-sized bronze figures and stone sculptures
