According to this, the KPMG Centre has caught the eye of the San Diego-based Omnitracs, a tech company that sounds from its name like it sells products you don’t need anymore on a shelf they rarely restock at a Radio Shack you never visit. ANYWAY, I’m clearly wrong because they would bring with them to Dallas something like 1,000 jobs. Which helps Dallas, and the struggling KPMG Centre, which went into foreclosure in 2012 and has since been owned by lenders. (It’s in the process of being sold.)  Why did the KPMG Centre fall on hard times? If I had to guess, I’d say they couldn’t stand the heat. Watch yourself, Omnitracs.
