Quote

A top engineering and design firm with more than 230 office around the globe plans to move its headquarters to Dallas.

 

California-based Jacobs Engineering Group already has more than 300 people working in the Harwood Center office tower in downtown Dallas. 

 

The 69-year-old company could bring almost 100 top officers and support staff to Dallas if it goes ahead with the head office move, real estate brokers who are tracking the deal say.

Quote

“We hope to make an official announcement later this summer.”

Quote

The company would be one of the top 10 public firms based in Dallas.

Quote

Real estate brokers say that landing a firm like Jacobs is a big plus for downtown which is seeing hundreds of millions of dollars in investment and development.

 

“Absolutely it is extremely positive for the Dallas central business district,” said Phil Puckett, executive vice president with commercial real estate firm CBRE.

 

Such major moves downtown validate efforts made to revive Dallas’ core, said Joel Pustmueller, partner with Peloton Commercial Real Estate.

Quote

Another high-rise apartment tower is in the works in Dallas’ booming Uptown district.

 

North Carolina-based Crescent Communities plans to build the 21-story tower on the site of a 1-story office building at McKinnon and Randall streets.

Quote

 

The apartments would be built on top of 6-story parking garage located within the building.

 

WDG Architecture is designing the tower, which will have about 200 rental units.

 

Crescent Communities’ planned apartment project is one of more than a dozen high-rise rental projects in the works in Dallas.

 

More than 6,600 apartments are now under construction in central Dallas – more than in any area of North Texas.

 

Quote

The developer also has an apartment building site on Zang Boulevard in Oak Cliff.

Mark Cuban buys Design District site for Dallas Mavericks practice center
Steve Brown
June 2, 2016

 

Quote

 

Cuban on Thursday bought about 13 acres at Stemmons Freeway and Inspiration Drive, directly across the freeway from Victory Park.

 

Cuban said he plans to quickly relocate to the just purchased  property in a temporary building space.

 

“We have a lot of long-term plans,” he said in an email.

 

Quote

The Mavericks will repurpose one of the buildings into temporary practice facilities and eventually redevelop the site into a mixed-use complex.

Quote

The Mavericks development could eventually include a wide variety of features, including a team store, public café, a museum and theater and outdoor plazas with water features, according to early design schemes for the project.

 

Cuban had said he wanted to keep the development in the downtown area.

Quote

“The Design District could wind up looking more like Uptown in another decade,” said developer Jim Lake, a long-time owner in the area.

Developer plans 40-story apartment tower on high-profile downtown Dallas site
Steve Brown
June 3, 2016

 

fountain.jpg


 

Quote

The ultra high-rise residential building would sit next door to Dallas’ landmark Fountain Place tower at Field Street and Munger Avenue.

 

Chicago-based apartment developer Amli Residential is eyeing the project, which would be built on land now used for surface parking.

Quote

 

“We don’t have anything to share at this time; we are very early in the process,” said Amli’s Taylor Bowen.

 

If the development gets off the ground, it would be Dallas’ tallest apartment tower and loftiest residential high-rise since the 42-story Museum Tower condo building opened three years ago.

 

“I just think this is another indication of what’s going on in downtown Dallas,” said John Crawford of the economic development group Downtown Dallas Inc. 

 

“There is a lot of interest in new residential in the downtown area.”

 

Quote

 

More than a dozen high-rise apartment projects are in the works in downtown and Uptown.

 

And more than 6,600 rental units are under construction in central Dallas.

 

Quote

 

The land was originally planned for a twin tower to the green glass, rocket-shaped skyscraper that was built in the 1980s.

 

Ross Perot Jr.’s Hillwood Urban owns the former Bank of America motor bank property just north of the property Amli is considering.

 

Hillwood Urban has designed an almost 50-story office tower for that block.

Could be waiting a while, my friend.  This is not much more than a rumor at this point.  To summarize the reality: Rumor has it that AMLI spoke to the owner of the property and IF AMLI buys that property, they might build an apartment building that could be as tall as 40 stories.

Good news for the Crescent.

 

Last week, Brunello Cucinelli and Canadian Governor General, David Johnston, were both at the Crescent.

 

A few weeks before, Escada's Creative Director, Daniel Wingate, and Joseph Altuzarra were at the Crescent.

 

I wonder to whom Rosewood will sell the property.

A landmark Dallas hotel is about to change hands. Look for big changes by the new owners.

Quote

 

Designed by famed architect Philip Johnson, the Crescent Court Hotel includes meeting space, a luxury spa, swimming pool and several restaurants.

 

Crescent Real Estate officials declined to discuss the pending hotel sale but said a formal announcement would be made after the transaction is completed.

 

Crescent Real Estate developed and owns the Ritz-Carlton Hotel across the street from the Crescent complex. And Crescent is developing the new McKinney & Olive office and retail project that opens in Uptown this summer.

Quote

 

A year after announcing more than $40 million in renovations, downtown Dallas landmark The Adolphus Hotel is entering its final phase of improvements.

 

Real estate private equity firm Rockbridge Capital, which owns The Adolphus, said Tuesday the final stage of the hotel’s facelift will include improvements to the lobby and new public spaces, restaurants and retail concepts.

 

Quote

Among the changes is a “complete reimagining” of the hotel’s restaurant The French Room, Rockbridge said. The eatery will have an updated menu, a new bar and a salon featuring art by Texas artists.

 

Quote

 

Other renovations planned for the final stage include:

  • The re-introduction of the lobby bar and Tea at the Adolphus, a street-side coffee shop
  • A Meditterranean bistro
  • A 5,000-square-foot luxury spa and salon with treatment rooms, relaxation lounges and a fitness facility
  • Renovations to the hotel’s 19th-floor ballroom, bringing the hotel’s total meeting space to 27,000 square feet
  • “Unique retail offerings” from local artisans

 

Quote

Most of the work is slated to be complete in early 2017, with the spa and salon opening this summer. 

Quote

“The Adolphus has been an essential part of the Dallas community for over 100 years and we are excited to reenergize the property while celebrating its history, architecture, and European roots,” Rockbridge CEO Jim Merkel said in a prepared statement.

Quote

 

Constructed in 1912, the property has accommodated celebrities including Queen Elizabeth II, Oscar de la Renta, Babe Ruth and several U.S. presidents.

These are all exquisite projects in DAL. I love the look of the Commune + Illume building and One Uptown the most. The Ross Perot placeholder design is extravagant too. Hope the Big D gets a supertall or two one day.

That would be nice. 

 

However, imagine if a 1000' supertall were divided into three separate buildings, thus adding vibrancy and density to the respective neighborhood. 

 

In the near future, Uptown, Victory Park, LoMac, Harwood, West Village and Turtle Creek will run out of lots to develop, thus driving developers to increase the height of proposed buildings to offset higher land prices. 

 

I predict Dallas will get a new tallest building within the next fifteen years.

New apartment tower east of downtown Dallas will include Tom Thumb grocery store
Steve Brown
June 15, 2016

 

citylightsperspective.jpg

 

Quote

 

A new grocery store and apartment tower planned on downtown Dallas’ near east side will bring Uptown-style development to the neighborhood.

 

North Carolina-based Greystar Real Estate Partners will build the 10-story high-rise at Live Oak and Texas streets, a block from DART’s commuter rail line.

 

A full-service Tom Thumb supermarket will be on the ground floor of the new building, which is part of Greystar’s City Lights development.

 

Quote

“We think that the grocery store could serve as an anchor tenant to bring other retail to the area,” Sparks said. “It will serve the east side of downtown, Deep Ellum and the Baylor hospital district.”

Quote

 

The Tom Thumb – which will have its entrance at the corner of Live Oak and Texas – will be served by an underground parking garage.

 

There will be 365 apartments above the grocer, with a separate garage.

 

Two large terraces for the apartment residents will overlook Live Oak and have views of downtown.

 

Quote

Sparks said Greystar plans to break ground on the project later this year and will deliver the building in 2018.

How $36M of TIF funds will shape Beck's $4B Dallas Midtown vision
Candace Carlisle
June 15, 2016

 

45i7jWKsbZL0UYnlr8l_ptLf08bgjslpvHbwgSC8

 

Quote

Next week could be big for the Beck family, as the city's economic development committee and the Dallas city council vote on $36 million of tax increment financing funds for the initial phase of the family's $4 billion Dallas Midtown mixed-use development.

Quote

 

This is precisely what the economic development committee and city council members have put in place, which is we will front the money to build public infrastructure and get a rebate on taxes back to pay for that infrastructure," Scott Beck, who is overseeing the development on behalf of Beck Ventures, told the Dallas Business Journal.

 

"I would be shocked if it didn't pass," he added.

 

Quote

 

Beck has been working alongside Hillwood Urban on that group's plans to build a multi-tenant office building and couldn't be more pleased with the developer's plans.

 

"We are waiting with bated breath for next week to get over this hurdle and take us to the next step," Beck said. "We've got to get these pieces done before the fun stuff can begin bringing in retailers, office users and all those things."

It's not a popular opinion among Dallasites and Houstonians but I view the world as "Houston AND Dallas" rather than "Houston vs. Dallas". 

 

DAL, SEA, and MIA are 3 cities that need to get a supertall at some point. All 3 have current proposals for supertalls. 

 

Obviously i I feel demand should dictate when they get one but all 3 cities ARE deserving of a supertall.

Perot’s high-rise project will be the first office tower along Dallas’ Turtle Creek since the 1980s
Steve Brown
June 16, 2016

 

turtle.jpg

 

Quote

Ross Perot Jr.’s Hillwood Urban real estate firm is looking for tenants for a high-rise office to be built on the last vacant site along Dallas’ posh Turtle Creek corridor.

Quote

Hillwood hired award-winning architect Pickard Chilton of New Haven, Conn., to design the high-rise project at 3001 Turtle Creek Blvd.

Quote

Plans for the 350,000-square-foot building include a landscaped park area facing the boulevard and a restaurant with outdoor dining.

Quote

 

“We are doing work across the country, but this Turtle Creek property in Dallas is probably one of the richest urban sites I’ve ever been able to work on,” said founding partner Jon Pickard. “The building will rise up the hill, and you will look over Turtle Creek and have vistas of downtown Dallas.”

 

The glass, metal and concrete building will be constructed in two wings, with one section overhanging the outdoor dining area.

 

“Instead of building one big monolithic block, we wanted something more dynamic, and we wanted to maximize the view,” Pickard said. “There is going to be an amazing restaurant with a terrace.

 

“We’ve created a spectacular park with the building set way back,” he said. “It’s going to be an experience you don’t typically get in an urban context.”

Pickard Chilton is working with Klyde Warren Park landscape designer James Burnett on the park and garden areas of the Turtle Creek project.

 

“We preserved the natural topography and preserved the trees,” Pickard said.

 

Quote

“They could have built a bigger building, but they want to make sure it contributes to the character of Dallas,” Pickard said.

Canadian-based C.A.T. Global Inc. has decided to open up a high-tech Dallas office in the city's West End in hopes of drawing young professionals with logistics and software support to its latest U.S. office.

 

This is the third U.S. office for the company, which also has offices in Memphis, Tennessee and Columbus, Ohio.

 

"Dallas was a strategic market for us as we improve our presence in the U.S. business," Jayson Martineau, a vice president and general manager for C.A.T. Global in Toronto, told the Dallas Business Journal in an exclusive interview.

 

"This office will house our technical portion and will create software to optimize our customer's supply chain and increase the efficiency of our trucks," Martineau told me.

 

Quote

 

"We operate very similar to a tech company and we want to attract Millennials looking for a balance between work and life," he added.

 

The company has leased 2,500 square feet of space within the building. Bob Ingram of Dallas-based Mohr Partners represented C.A.T. Global in its real estate search.

 

Quote

At the time of the deal, the building was more than 90 percent leased.

With so many companies trying to attract Millienials....isn't that age discrimination?

Im 3 years removed from being a millienial and the thought of being passed up for a position ,even if I have more experience, for some Vine,snapchat,instacrap obsessed youngster (no offense to you all)just doesnt seem right at all.

 

It isnt. And keep in mind millienials: The same will happen to you.
