Mosaic Dallas, formerly Fidelity Union Life Insurance Building, is a residential development in the City Center District of downtown Dallas, Texas (USA), adjacent to Thanks-giving Square. The complex is located across the street from DART's Akard Station, which serves its Blue, Red and Green light rail lines.

History

The buildings were originally home to the Fidelity Union Life Insurance Company. The first tower was built in 1952, and is 21 stories tall. The 31 story second tower (also known as the Mayflower Building because it was built by Mayflower Investment Co.) was added in 1960. The building is connected to the Bullington Truck Terminal.

Fidelity Union vacated the building in 1985 and Texas Power & Light (TXU), the other major tenant, moved out in 1992. The complex remained vacant until Hamilton Properties Corporation bought it in 2004, rechristening it as The Mosaic, in honor of the thousands of green tiles that line the buildings' facade. The renovation included construction of 440 apartments with interiors designed by three note architects: Ike Isenhour, Stanley Ray, and MAA. The residences were opened to occupancy on 6 December 2007 and the ground floor features a restaurant and fitness center.

The structure was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2009.
