For the first time since 1983, Sundance Square will be managed by a company outside the Bass family.

Fine Line Group, owned by Ed and Sasha Bass, announced late Friday afternoon that it was handing over property management to Henry S. Miller Company. This includes the core blocks of Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth.

The City Center Towers complex, owned by the Bass family, will continue to be managed by City Center Management Company, led by CEO Johnny Campbell. The complex includes the Wells Fargo Tower, the Bank of America Tower and their attached parking garages.

The change goes into effect Jan. 1.

“We are ready to advance Sundance Square to the next level, bringing new vibrancy to our retail, restaurant, multi-family residential, office and entertainment offerings,” Ed Bass said in a statement. “I am delighted that one of the country’s great real estate firms — Henry S. Miller Company — will be our partner. And I am proud that we have selected a Texas firm that has developed, managed and leased other iconic properties.”

When the Bass family developed Sundance Square in the 1970s, Henry S. Miller was the first property management and leasing firm for the massive downtown space until 1983..

According to the announcement, Bill Boecker, a longtime business partner of Ed Bass, will be working with Henry S. Miller to help with the transition over the next two months.
