That's pretty impressive. Dallas and Atlanta are on a roll that seems to far exceed the other US metros.

New Dallas condo development in Cedars gets nearly $10M to kick off project

 

cedarscondodallas-copy.jpg

 

The 62-unit project, called Destination Residences, will span a multi-story condominium project in the up-and-coming urban neighborhood just south of downtown Dallas.


The development team plans to use an existing parking garage on the site that will help them "move quickly," on building the multi-story condo building, Laub said.



"This isn't a proven market," he said. "There are not a lot of condo products down there and this is an untapped market for this type of product — particularly at the price point they plan to deliver them at."

Developer Bill Cawley hits it into high gear with his next Tollway office building

 

balcony-shot_orig.jpg

 

Dallas developer Bill Cawley has begun his next office building along the Dallas North Tollway, between Belt Line Road and Spring Valley Road, which will bring the new home for Occidental Petroleum Corp. (NYSE: OXY) to fruition.



Oxy's chemical division signed a lease for roughly half the building — or 120,000 square feet of office space — in a long-term deal. The remainder of the building will be put on the market.


The six-story, 240,000-square-foot building, known as Fourteen 555, sits at 14555 Dallas Parkway in Addison.


"Like Tollway Center and Knoll Trail Plaza, Fourteen 555 features a state-of-the-art fitness center, conference center and our signature rooftop terrace," said Cawley, CEO of Dallas-based Cawley Partners, in a statement.



"However, all of the amenities for Fourteen 555 will be located in a separate amenity building called The Hub, which will also feature a large courtyard," he added. "Tenants and their employees look for walkability in the new office space."


Construction is slated for completion in September 2018.

Modern-style condo mid-rise on the books for Dallas' White Rock Lake neighborhood

 

the-drake-at-white-rock-rendering-2.png

 

A Dallas-based development group, NBKW Partners LLC, plans to build a new seven-story condominium residence that will bring up to 100 new single-family homes to Dallas' White Rock Lake neighborhood.


The condominium, called The Drake at White Rock, could appeal to first-time buyers, empty nesters and residents attracted to the natural beauty of White Rock Lake, said Al Coker, owner of Al Coker & Associates, who is marketing the development.


The condo homes will be priced from $290,000 to $750,000 based on the size of the home and its finishes. The project will include one-, two- and three-bedroom options with expansive balconies and a number of community amenities.

That's not what the article said.  And Dallas city limits maps appear to show Dallas proper stops at the tollway.  West of the tollway is Addison.

^I can't wait till this one hits over 30 stories.:P It'll make an impact.

 

1900 Pearl is also a very interesting bldg. Basically some office space over a tall parking garage. Good way to get height.  More bldgs should do this.(362ft for 25 stories)

I believe the Residences at PD will reach 385', roughly ten feet taller than Azure.

New rendering for AMLI Fountain Place and glass parking garage in CBRE flyer:

 

Fountain-Place-hero-1.jpg
CBRE

 

It seems there is  a good deal of uncertainty about this apartment building rendering.  The link to the flyer was removed (The flyer was for Fountain Place, not for the AMLI apartment building. It's possible CBRE got some pushback from AMLI). Whether the AMLI building will look anything like this rendering seems to be an open question.

5816140

 

CommercialSearch

The owners of LBJ Financial Center -- a California-based real estate investment partnership -- are asking the City of Dallas for approval to construct additional buildings on the site for apartments and a hotel.


Two large surface parking lots are located on the east and west side of the office buildings.


City planners are recommending that the proposal to convert the office campus into a mixed-use project be approved.

Hope they don't change it too much. I like that render.

Not much research on that article. The ExxonMobil refinery in Baytown paid  $18.3 million in school taxes alone for 2016. I would bet the ExxonMobil campus paid at least that much as well.

I probably should have worded that as not having the inclination to look up the amounts for the campus at the time. The full picture is hard to get, because the industrial district the campus is in doesn't make the bills available on their website. The rate for the ID is 1.33, so that's going to generate $13 million in taxes without even looking at the school and county amounts.

"It was of the utmost importance we do something unique and different being next to I.M. Pei's Fountain Place," said Amli executive vice president Taylor Bowen. 

 


"We want to have one of the premier timeless buildings downtown."

 

 

Quote

"We wanted a very clean, geometric object and the two towers will dance with each other across the garden," Speck said. 

 


"It really will be distinctive on the skyline — the kind of signature just another box would never be."

"The glass needed to be the primary connection between the two buildings," Speck said. "We looked at tons and tons of alternatives and did testing.

I went to see Morrissey in Dallas. I'm completely jealous that the Majestic Theatre still stands and has been turned into a great smaller concert venue. Yeah, we've got whatever it's called now in Bayou Place and the HOB but this is different. I stayed at The Joule and walked to and from the venue. Passing by the old Neiman Marcus also made me jelly. Downtown looked great (well, the 6 blocks I explored before heading out to Deep Ellum to visit my friend's new brick and mortar Easy Slider joint. She's killing it after years in the food truck biz. 

 

I chose going to the Dallas show for this type of experience after Morrissey's concert in Houston was moved from White Oak to freaking Sugar Land. 

 

Dallas has a lot of great things going on. So does Houston. Grow up or get off of this thread, native onion.

I particularly like the design of AMLI's building.  I think maybe part of that is because it draws a bit of attention away from Pei's design next door, which always struck me as being somewhat "wrong" in the massing of shapes.   I generally like his work a lot -- not so much the brutalist stuff, but the things he did after that.

My understanding is that Henry Cobb designed Allied Bank Tower to play off of its older brother Allied Bank Plaza in Houston.  It's a nice link.  Both buildings also make more sense in plan view.  Where Allied Bank Plaza (1000 Louisiana, Wells Fargo Plaza) is like two quarter-circles offset diagonally, so too Allied Bank Tower at Fountain Place is a square with a parallelogram inscribed diagonally across it.  The tower's peak ingeniously splits the parallelogram in half.  The angles of the resulting secondary triangles are a little off visually when viewed in section, but who's counting?  The bluish glass has become so imitated in Texas buildings since that it unfortunately no longer obviously links the two sibling towers.

Park Plaza, site of the world's first drive-through bank, Hillcrest State Bank (1938)

 

  • Mixed-Use
  • Office
  • Retail
  • 347,000 SF

The ground-floor retail serves as an amenity for the office workers and activates the street level. 



The streetscape and pedestrian crossing areas are carefully planned to ensure visitor safety. Since the development will be built on the site of an old office building and two surface parking lots, the project required extensive rezoning through the City of University Park. The design was successfully approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission and is anticipated to start construction soon.

Plans for a new downtown Dallas grocery store are making the rounds

 

1499448432-Mercantile-Building-aerial-bl

 

Project Location

 

Another block of downtown Dallas — the street level of the Mercantile Building — is being prepared for new retail tenants, including a long-sought-after grocery store.



The Urban Design Peer Review, a group that works with the City of Dallas Plan Commission, has been shown plans that include a Royal Blue Grocery on Ervay Street.

The grocery is shown on plans in the Mercantile Building storefronts on the corner of Ervay and Main streets. The Peer Review plans from Droese Raney Architecture mention the possibility for some outdoor seating.

Royal Blue partnered with Dallas investors Zac Porter, Emily Ray-Porter and Cullen Potts in 2015 for its first Dallas store in Highland Park Village.

D-FW leads the country in office building leasing

 

Dallas-Fort Worth topped the country in office leasing for the second quarter, thanks to a growing economy that fueled demand for new office space.



Net office leasing in the D-FW area totaled 1.4 million square feet in the just-completed quarter, according to a new report from Cushman & Wakefield Inc.


The D-FW area led the country in employment growth in May, with almost 116,000 more jobs than in the same month in 2016.
