Solana was originally conceived in 1985 as a secluded office campus on almost 1,000 acres of land in North Dallas for IBM. After a competition, IBM eventually teamed with Maguire Thomas Partners as the master developer, with Anderson as the Project Leader. A world-class design team was assembled including Aldo Giurgola of Mitchell Giurgola, Ricardo Legorreta, Peter Walker and Barton Meyers. The plan evolved into a mixed-use campus including multiple office buildings eventually totaling 4.5 million sq. ft., a village center housing retail, shops and support retail, fitness center, a 198 room Marriott Hotel and residential home sites.

The unique relationship of buildings to open space, such as the creation of the "Impluvium" courtyard and the creation of secluded courts contrasting with fountains and running trails, have earned this project multiple awards since its inception. In fact, this was a project the helped propel Ricardo Legorreta to earn the coveted Pritzker Prize for architectural excellence.

To date, over 2.5 million square feet of office space has been constructed, including the highly acclaimed headquarters for Sabre Holdings.
