Global law firm gains foothold in Uptown with Park District deal

 

video-poster.gif
Winston

 

Global giant Winston & Strawn LLP will open its new Dallas office in Uptown's Park District office tower adjacent to Klyde Warren Park, putting the law firm in a high-profile building with building signage rights.



The law firm decided to lease two floors at PwC Tower at Park District totaling about 56,000 square feet of office space and building signage rights.

Winston & Strawn, which was founded in Chicago, has been looking for a permanent home in Dallas since February, when the firm announced it had lured nearly two dozen prominent North Texas partners from eight different area firms to open the new office.


A former federal prosecutor who is recognized as one of the leading trial lawyers in the nation, Melsheimer said this office could be one of the most successful law firms in Dallas.


"There's a trend of law firms going to Uptown or on the north side of downtown Dallas as Uptown remains tight," said Puckett, an executive vice president in CBRE's Dallas office.



The high-quality office buildings are attracting prestigious law firms wanting to build their brand and identity in Dallas, he added.


"Dallas is such a major focus in the United States right now, with law firms wanting to brand their firms on the buildings in a tasteful manner; and we've never seen this in the past," he said

This RH project has been talked about for years.  Is it finally going to happen?  It's quite surprising that Dallas doesn't yet have an RH Gallery.

1499980739-NB_26P4DEALDAYB_39454123.JPG?

 

Project Location

 

Called Mid Elm Lofts, the buildings at 1512, 1514 and 1516 Elm are being converted into a combination of retail and loft apartments.



Metropolitan Capital Advisors said Thursday that it has arranged a $14.6 million construction loan for Westdale Real Estate Investment and Management for the project.

"Mid Elm Lofts will feature 29 high-end, boutique apartments in a turn-of-the- century loft setting, with ground floor retail, basement retail and a trendy rooftop retail area," the Dallas-based financial firm said.

Texas on tap for new U.S. Cricket stadium with help of JLL

 

USCricketLeaguePrototypicalComplex_15003

 

Dallas-Fort Worth could get another major sports team added to its roster as part of a $2.4 billion venture to launch another U.S. sports league, which would be the biggest pitch since Major League Soccer.



Global Sports Ventures LLC, which announced it planned on establishing a professional cricket league in the United States, hired JLL's sports and entertainment group to find attractive development sites in eight U.S. cities, including Dallas-Fort Worth.


If the sites are found, these cities could be home to a cricket-specific stadium and a mixed-use development as early as 2020.



Dallas-Fort Worth will be a big contender for the planned Texas charter location. 

Other charter cities or regions include: New York, New Jersey, Florida, Washington, D.C., Georgia, Illinois and California.

Upon its launch in 2020, the U.S. Cricket League plans to expand in four to six additional markets.

The first eight stadiums and their surrounding developments are expected to cost Global Sports Ventures $2.4 billion and create 17,000 jobs. Each development could have a cricket stadium, club house, restaurants, hotels, retail, residential and office space.

JLL's International Director David Demarest said the brokerage firm has already begun its site selection and is reviewing multiple sites within the targeted cities.

The stadiums are expected to cost $70 million to $125 million, with ancillary costs of $80 million to $100 million for the mixed-use developments accompanying the cricket stadiums.

Planned mixed-use project of nearly 275 acres would be one of the first along I-20

 

1500477982-universityhills.jpg?auto=form

 

Project Location

 

Centurion American Development Group is getting approvals for the almost 275-acre project at I-20 and Lancaster Road. The development would include sites for construction of townhouses, apartments, retail, office and hotels.


A preliminary site plan shows that the retail and commercial construction would be concentrated at the south end of the property near I-20.



Townhouses and apartments would be built at the north end of the heavily wooded tract near the DART light rail Blue Line.

Centurion American's planned development is just southeast of the University of North Texas' southern Dallas campus and is adjacent to a DART commuter rail station.

Homes in the project would be within walking distance of the transit line, according to city planners.

Reminds me of the way areas along I-66 have been built out in Fairfax County, Virginia.  Lots of commuter townhomes.  But what is walking distance when summer trips home occur at 95+ degrees?  Do they mean the homes will have subterranean ped-tunnels like downtown? 

If a Real Walking City like San Francisco or London were to have a week of 95+ degree temperatures, even their people in white collars would only walk up to about 250 feet between air-conditioned enclosures  (Summer afternoons there are often about 70 degrees).

Looks like studies have been done on walking in heat versus no heat

https://books.google.com/books?id=eTBLC2dY894C&pg=PA301&lpg=PA301&dq=study+walking+distance+temperature&source=bl&ots=N_JnjxLXOz&sig=AGyRaPMmlSR2ANi_x8j6ex0JWmI&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwiJqca7_ZrVAhVE9IMKHf_XBG8Q6AEIKDAA#v=onepage&q=study walking distance temperature&f=false

Quote

In an unpublished study of observed walking tips at noon in the CBD of Montreal, it was seen that walking distance to destination or a long stop was unrelated to actual walking distance through a temperature range of -21°C to +31°C [-6°F to 88°F].

 

This could mean that as long as it is walk-able during the spring, people will still walk it in the summer

While it could mean that, I think there's ample reason the study went down seventy degrees below room temp, but a fraction of that above it.  People don't like having to wash their clothes for the day after ten or fifteen minutes outside -- and for all of the Texas Triangle cities, there's a bit more than a third of each calendar year that the average daily high temperature is above 88 degrees...

DFW places second, only behind NYC, in apartment delivery for 2017.

 

Via Rent Cafe:

 

Dallas-Fort Worth, the job-centric Texas mega-hub that has seen the largest population increases in the entire country, adding approx. 143K new residents from 2015 to 2016, is second when it comes to new apartment supply.



No less than 25,000 new units are planned for completion this year, making Dallas even more desirable for renters who seek affordability and variety in their housing choices. The local rental market is relatively stable with rent growth at a moderate 3.5% y-o-y. Average rents in the Metroplex hover around $1,094, significantly lower than the national average and half of what New Yorkers shell out on rent on a monthly basis. 

Moreover, with a diverse economic sector and steady job growth, the employment picture is rock-solid in D-FW, so it’s no wonder young professionals are arriving in droves.

Project Location

 

The landmark Ambassador Hotel just south of downtown is Dallas' oldest surviving hotel building.



Built in 1905, the 6-story building on Ervay Street is owned by a partnership headed by developer Jim Lake Jr.


"We are officially underway."


"The outside will not change," Lake said. "The public areas will not changewe will restore all those. It gets all new infrastructure."



A ground-level swimming pool, retail space on the first floor and tenant amenities including a lounge are part of the plans for the building.

EY investing $10M in downtown Dallas cybersecurity center, to employ 300

 

ernst-and-young-jld7325.jpg

 

Ernst & Young said Thursday that it’s investing $10 million to expand its Dallas footprint by 14,000 square feet, as the company goes after the crowded cybersecurity market.



The new cybersecurity center will house 300 employees, with about three-fourths of them coming via new hires, said Ben Trowbridge, EY cybersecurity managed services leader and executive director. The center will get up and running in September, and execs have a goal to complete hiring within the first 12 months.


The facility will also include a

24/7 operations center, a cyber innovation center, an executive briefing center, and a “cyber range,” where clients can replicate real-world conditions during trials.

New York-based shared office concept to put Texas hub in Arts District

 

HAexteriorprime8.15.jpg
Hall Arts

 

A New York-based shared office concept is bringing its first upscale coworking concept to the Dallas Arts District with the help of Dallas developer Craig Hall, who recently invested an undisclosed sum in the company.



Along with being an investor, Hall will be the landlord for Serendipity Labs Coworking, which plans to open its 29,000-square-foot Texas hub on the 17th floor and ground floor of KPMG Plaza at Hall Arts.


The hub-like office in the Dallas Arts District will serve as a launching pad for other Serendipity Labs Coworking offices in North Texas. Last year, the company announced plans to open nine locations in the region.



"We think there is enough pent-up demand in Dallas-Fort Worth to justify eight really good locations," said Doug Denman, president of Worth Coworking. "We have begun looking at the markets we will want to be in."


The 17th floor at KPMG Plaza will give Serendipity's initial North Texas location views throughout Dallas' skyline and will help solidify the coworking concept's upscale brand in the region, he added.


Construction is slated to begin by the end of next month. Serendipity has yet to select a general contractor.



Officials say they expect to be up and running for members by this November.

Via DMN - DFW places second in North America data center absorption:

 

Still, Bond said D-FW had Chicago beat by a metric that’s even more important than raw supply: absorption.



That’s how much of that storage capacity is actually booked up by data tenants, or the companies that don’t want to house giant servers for all the information they need to run their businesses.

And Bond said that as more and more data center ecosystems hit their stride, it’s a better indicator of how well-balanced regional markets are.


D-FW’s absorption in the first half of 2017 was a 50 percent increase over the same time in 2016.



“The story on Dallas is we have a great demand pipeline and the ease to build,” Bond said.


Bond said that part of the reason D-FW is, in a way, playing catch-up to other markets is that its fast-growing business base is more diverse than Chicago’s, Northern Virginia’s or Northern California’s.

Exclusive: Sam Ware to give new life to former Parkland campus

 

dreien-parkland-jd59957.jpg

 

The longtime Dallas developer and business partner Jeff Blakeley of Dallas-based Dreien Opportunity Partners LLC are under contract to buy the 1.4 million-square-foot property, with plans to give it a second life as an amenity-rich destination called The District.



"You could not replicate this today for under $500 million," said Ware, who calls this a "once in a lifetime," opportunity.


Some of the proposed plans include:



 
  • Convert the emergency room tower into a hotel to cater to the Medical District. A hotel flag has yet to be selected and a hotel study is being conducted to determine demand for rooms.
  • Build small condos that can be sold at a price point ranging from the $200,000s to the $750,000s.
  • Develop micro-unit apartments by combining two patient rooms into a 500-square-foot apartment that can be rented at a discount compared with Uptown rents.
  • Retrofit rooms to offer a wide range of senior living capabilities from assisted living to memory care.
  • Bring in a variety of amenities ranging from valet services, a high-end workout facility, eateries such as a 24-hour diner called Scrubs, a grocery store, high-end 7-Eleven store and other amenities doctors, nurses, patients and residents might need to stay in The District.
  • Convert a two-story underground MRI facility into a parking facility to add up to 900 parking spaces to the campus.

Oak Cliff's Wynnewood Village owner Brixmor plans upgrades for the 1940s shopping center

 

1501691271-Wynnewood_Village_concept_3.j

 

Project Location 

 

Wynnewood was built in 1949, decades before enclosed malls were built. It was laid out like a village with one-story buildings and parking around the streets.


A plan is taking shape to spend about $30 million to make the shopping center “more relevant to the community,” said Matthew Berger, president of the West division of Brixmor.


"Their team has flown in three times in the last two months and we've had other conversations," Griggs said. "We welcome their vision and redesign. The addition of new tenants will benefit all of Oak Cliff and southern Dallas."


He said it will take at least another 60 days before leases are signed, but said the prospective tenants are services that aren’t in the center now.



Architectural renderings provided by Brixmor show a theater and a fitness center.


“This is a project we’re ready to start tackling now,” Berger said.


The core shopping center will get new landscaping, façade and parking areas, Berger said, and a section near an existing roundabout will be a new focal point of the shopping center.



Brixmor is still working on plans, he said, but a second phase will include the large vacant field in the middle of the center where a Montgomery Ward store once stood.

While Dallas manufacturing thrives, Austin and Houston rank as nation's worst

Tony Romo Tribute by Joseph Haubert

 

Texas Job Creation/Loss by County

 

  • Dallas + 3,200
  • Travis - (3,000)
  • Harris - (19,000)

 

North Texas Job Creation/Loss by County

 

  1. Dallas  + 3,200
  2. Denton  + 396
  3. Kaufman  + 249
  4. Rockwall  + 249
  5. Collin  + 225
  6. Ellis  + 77
  7. Tarrant  - (2,095)

 

Dallas County created 3,191 manufacturing jobs in 2016, according to Headlight Data. That ranked No. 3 in the U.S. for most jobs created.


Dallas' success stands in stark contrast to Travis County, Austin's home, which lost 3,000 manufacturing jobs. Travis lost the second most manufacturing jobs nationwide.



And the county that lost the most? Harris County, home of Houston, which lost 19,000 manufacturing jobs. Dallas' neighbor to the west, Tarrant County, didn't fare well either, losing more than 2,000 manufacturing jobs last year.

"Oil and gas is very tied to metal manufacturing, and of course in Houston that's going to fall," Engle said, citing the downturn in the oil market.

Wondering about all that construction at the arboretum? Here’s what’s up.

 

Later this fall, visitors will be able to experience A Tasteful Place, a working garden, or “portager” as the French say. The 2-acre space will be populated with fruit, vegetables, herbs and flowers, and will include orchards, a picnic lawn, patios and trails that overlook the lake and downtown.



 

You cannot miss the 3,600-square-foot Garden Pavilion, which includes a dining room and commercial kitchen for cooking classes, educational programs and chef-prepared meals. The healthful meals will be sourced from the garden’s produce, which will be grown sustainably. Throughout the year, there will be daily tastings, cooking classes and demos about planting and harvesting fruits and vegetables.

Marriott Uptown update, via Dallas Towers:

 

Oak Lawn Committee President Brenda Marks informed Towers that the OLC was able to get Alamo Manhattan to move the parking underground.



There will be on-site pedestrian amenities that will include wider sidewalks, tables, benches, planters, trees, “and outdoor meeting space to encourage street engagement within this urban environment.”

Alamo Manhattan has estimated the project will begin in 2018 and take two years to complete.

"West is the direction we want to go," Ventresca said. And Dallas "checks all the boxes from the league's perspective."


Gross said several groups are interested in owning a team in Dallas, but Jerry Jones' camp is not one of them.



"The Cowboys will not be an owner," Gross said. "They’ve made it clear their focus is on the Cowboys, but they’re very supportive of what we’re trying to do."

New Dallas office tower on the way at Park Lane development on North Central Expressway

 

The owners want to build an office tower with up to 11 floors and as much as 340,000 square feet of space.

"The motivation behind this new building is we've seen serious upward movement in the rents in our existing offices," Spurgin said. "We think we'll garner significant interest with this building."



Northwood hired architect Gensler to design the tower.

The office tower would be one of the largest such developments along U.S. 75 in years.
