Towers

 

Project Location

 

Stonelake Capital Partners and apartment builder Wood Partners have broken ground on the 324-unit rental project in the 25-acre Trinity Green development on Singleton Boulevard just west of Sylvan Avenue.



Stonelake Capital Partners and builder StreetLights Residential have already built 371 apartments in the first phase of the $400 million development. And David Weekley Homes is building 96 homes in the project. 

Stonelake also built a 1-acre central park in Trinity Green.

Texas Capital Bank is financing the new Alta Trinity Green apartments, which will open in fall 2018.

Stonelake says it plans to develop an additional 850 apartment units at Trinity Green.

Alliance Residential met with the Oak Lawn Committee regarding the orientation of a possible 22-story, 240' tower in Knox Park. Project proposed at south corner of Cole and Armstrong.

 

Project may change given OLC, CC and developer's decisions. 

 

Project Location

 

Last night, they returned with a vastly different configuration.  The same 340-unit density, but they siphoned units off the back 80 percent of the lot and placed them in a high-rise on Armstrong Avenue. This left the very northern part of the property with a 22-story, 240-foot high-rise with the remainder of the property within MF-2’s height of three stories.

The new McKinney & Olive high-rise in Dallas' booming Uptown district was honored with the ULI's annual Innovation award. The 536,000-square-foot office and retail project on McKinney Avenue was developed by Crescent Real Estate.



"Crescent's development and design team, led by architect Pelli Clarke Pelli, started McKinney & Olive with a goal of setting a new standard for workplace design in Texas. Every major decision was measured against that goal," Joseph Pitchford, Managing Director of Crescent Real Estate, said in a statement.

Downtown Dallas' redevelopment of the Statler Hotel corridor on Commerce and Harwood streets was awarded the ULI's Next Big Idea Award. Dallas' Merriman Anderson Architects designed the $230 million Statler Hotel renovation and other projects in the area.

UT Southwestern planning a $480 million expansion of Clements Hospital

 

utsw-5.jpg

Callisonrtkl

 

Project Location

 

UT Southwestern is planning a $480 million expansion that will add 292 patient beds and 19 operating rooms to its flagship William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital by 2020.



The expansion is driven by “a greater-than-expected need” for specialty care, in areas such as neurology and cancer, hospital officials said Wednesday. The goal is to consolidate resources, boost efficiency and enhance the quality of care provided to patients, said Dr. Daniel Podolsky, president of University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.

Clements Hospital will remain open as UT Southwestern builds a third tower on the north end of the current facility.

That center has become “a top priority,” with significant investments in basic research into brain injury and disease, and research to generate new approaches and treatments, he said.

A “significant part” of the third tower will focus on services for patients suffering from brain-related illnesses, and will staff neurologists, psychiatrists and other related clinicians.

Funding for the new tower will come from bond sales previously approved by the UT System Board of Regents and supplemented with philanthropic support.

I've been seeing this make the rounds. 1121ft (if it happened) would be tallest outside NYC and CHI not counting the spire on Philly's newest. I like the glass design on one of those smaller towers. Can't wait to see who Amazon picks.

Correct!

 

If 1,121' (which is a rather arbitrary number) Amazon's HQ would sit in-between Chicago's John Hancock and NYC's Three WTC.

Project Location

 

Oaxaca Interests said it plans to redevelop an old warehouse on Fort Worth Avenue into a dining and retail venue.

The developer said the old warehouse will be repurposed as a "pet-friendly, indoor-outdoor destination."

The real estate firm hopes to rent the 10,000-square-foot building to two to five tenants.



"The flexibility of the space, as well as its indoor and outdoor components, is perfectly suited for a food hall, beer garden and several smaller retailers and food artisans," Jackson said.

Architects Lake Flato and Hocker Design Group - which did Sylvan|30 are doing the project.

Eagle Ford School to be renovated for offices

 

1702150016_DannyFulgencio_EagleFordSchoo

 

Project Location

 

The 1923 West Dallas school, famous as the elementary school where outlaw Bonnie Parker attended, could be coming into a new era.



The city initiated efforts last year to make the Eagle Ford School a Dallas historic landmark because of its significance as a last remnant of Cement City and the Eagle Ford community. That

move prevented the building, which was on the market, from being torn down for about three years while its case is under review.

Moser has plans to restore the building’s facades, expose bricked-in windows, replace windows and doors and add a paved parking lot. The interior will be renovated as an office space.



“We will bring this building back to a good condition for another hundred years,” Moser told the Dallas Landmark Commission this week.

Rosewood Property brings in venture partner for 2.5M-square-foot corporate magnet in Plano

 

oneheritagecreekside300dpi-copy.jpg

 

Project Location

 

Rosewood Property and Patrinely Group unveiled plans Tuesday outlining a 12-story, 343,800-square-foot office tower, called One Heritage Creekside, within Heritage Creekside's new 72-acre mixed-use campus along the President George Bush Turnpike on the west side of Interstate 75.



In all, the mixed-use campus — which is aimed at luring a major corporate tenant — will total more than 2.5 million square feet of Class A office space, retail, luxury urban apartments, hotels and single-family homes.

One Heritage Creekside, which could deliver as early as the fourth quarter of 2019, will be the first of four office buildings in a quad, with an additional fifth tower for a large company's operations, such as Amazon's proposed HQ2.

Even though the office tower could deliver as early as the fourth quarter of 2019, a spokeswoman for the development group said they require a tenant commitment before beginning construction.

Dallas-area apartment builders trail only one metropolis in construction permits

 

1510070547-image005.jpg?auto=format&q=50

 

Dallas ranked second only to New York for total apartment building permits through the third quarter, according to a new report by Richardson-based RealPage.



Through September, developers in the Dallas area have received permits to start more than 20,000 apartments. That's down less than 1 percent from last year's building permit totals.

More than 47,000 apartments are currently under construction in North Texas.

2323 Cedar Springs Rd

 

View-04.jpg

 

Project Location

 

The client is looking for a signature building in the heart of the most important subdistrict in Dallas. Anchored by two restaurants, the proposed 600,000 square foot, 27-story building intends to dampen the “architectural noise” that is surrounding the site with many different architectural styles, and rise as an elegantly constrained object.



While striving to satisfy the client’s desire to design the building such that the top would make an architectural statement recognizable on the Dallas skyline, project goals include maximizing view corridors from the site, assist in unifying/extending the pedestrian experience in the neighborhood, establish a park space that serves the buildings and neighborhood alike, and seek to create a “legacy” building for Granite Properties.

Building form and skin manipulate light; undulating vertically to provide varying floor plates, curtain wall planes extend above the roof to provide wind protection for a common amenity space. With an emphasis on building height and slenderness, the building dissolves at key locations to offer a sense of lightness.

Knox Street's familiar Weir's Furniture block is getting a high-rise makeover

 

1510688778-weirsfront.jpg?auto=format%2C

 

Project Location 

 

The owners of Weir's Furniture and Atlanta-based developer Geyer Morris Co. plan to build a high-rise retail and office development on the site of the almost 70-year-old store.



For several months, the Weir family and the developers have worked to design the project, which preserves the Highland Park Soda Fountain buildingmore than a century old — on the corner of Knox and Travis streets.

"We are focused on saving that soda fountain building — that's been an original desire of ours," said Geyer Morris' Justin Schoellkopf. "We've let this dictate the design of the rest of the project."

The lower floors would have retail and office and step back from the street to a 12-story office high-rise.



Weir's Furniture would relocate to a two-story space on the Travis Street side of the new building.

Parking for the 50,000 square feet of retail space and offices in the tower would be in a six-level underground garage.



"It's expensive, but we wanted to do it," Schoellkopf said.

More office space on the way at booming Cypress Waters project

 

1510940383-3201olympus.jpg?auto=format%2

 

The 3201 Olympus Boulevard project will have 250,000 square feet of space in a five-story building. The office development is part of The Sound district at Cypress Waters, which also includes retail and restaurant space and apartments.

Billingsley filed a building permit with the city of Dallas for $25 million, which includes the 3201 Olympus office building and a four-story parking garage.



"We are breaking ground in the first quarter and the building should be complete by second quarter 2019," said Carey Morgan, Billingsley's director of marketing. "It is a lakeside building across the street from 20,000 square feet of retail with a dog park, splash pad for kids, lakefront amphitheater for concerts, 5-6-mile hike/bike trail, and parks with events and programming throughout the year.

If they can I think they should increase the height. 562 is cool but 620 to 700 would be better assuming it's supposed to be shorter than 720. It should be in the same air lane as 720  FP so it could be okay with FAA.

A Texas City’s Named One of the Most High-Tech Cities in the World, But it’s Not the City You Think

 

11-dallas-fort-worth-texas-1.jpg

 

If Dallasites didn’t have enough reasons to boast about their city, Business Insider just gave them another huge bragging right.



The prominent business site ranks Dallas-Fort Worth as one of the most high-tech cities in the world – and it’s the only Texas spot to make the cut. Take that, Austin!

Business Insider consulted with research firm 2thinknow to determine the 85 most technologically advanced cities in the world. Dallas-Fort Worth came in at number 11, beating out Beijing, Washington, D.C., and Tokyo among others.

You can thank the explosive tech scene for pushing North Texas into the future. The metroplex’s entrepreneurial ecosystem has experienced serious growth in the last year, and it’s not slowing down anytime soon.

Dallas is still behind a few other American cities in tech, including Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, New York, and San Francisco (which topped the list). 



However, it wouldn’t be surprising if Dallas continued to climb the rankings in coming years.

Yes, Dallas is the city of tomorrow – and it’s already leading the pack in the Lone Star State.

Downtown Dallas finally scores the grocery store it has long craved

 

Royal-Blue-Grocery_153808.jpg

 

Project Location - Trammell Crow Center

 

Project Location - Mercantile Place

 

Downtown Dallas finally nets the grocery store it has long craved, and it's a humdinger: Austin-based Royal Blue Grocery will open not one but two stores, both inside the Central Business District.



For downtown dwellers, that means a short jaunt to get house-made quinoa oatmeal topped with Texas pecans, dried cranberries, brown sugar, and cinnamon. It means sandwiches, soups, salads, and produce. It means toilet paper in a pinch. It also means coffee by acclaimed Stumptown Coffee from Portland, Oregon.

The two stores will be located at the Mercantile Place building at 1704 Main St., and at the Trammell Crow Center at 2001 Ross Ave., which is currently undergoing a multimillion-dollar makeover.

The chain hopes to do for downtown Dallas what it has done for downtown Austin: add density, vitality, street amenities, and convenience for workers and residents downtown.

In a release, Royal Blue Grocery proprietor Zac Porter says they're excited about Trammell Crow Center, which he calls "an iconic building undergoing a beautiful remodel."



"Our patio overlooking the DMA is going to be really special," he says. "As we expand into downtown Dallas, we think this location will be great for the building and our Ross Avenue, Arts District, and Klyde Warren Park neighbors."

Target to open its first small-concept store in Dallas-Fort Worth

 

1512407295-Preston-Center-1.jpg?auto=for

Project Location

 

Target is bringing its first small-format store to the Dallas area next summer. The store will open in Preston Center in Dallas near upscale shoppers in Preston Hollow and the Park Cities.  



The 54,700-square-foot store will open in July on the west side of the shopping center in the Pavilion building at Westchester Drive and Berkshire Lane.

The Preston Center store will sell beer and wine and serve as a pickup point for online purchases, said Mark Schindele, senior vice president properties at Target. Online orders are usually ready in an hour, Target said.



Merchandise will be tailored to the area, Target said. Groceries will be focused on fresh produce and grab-and-go items, snacks and meal solutions. The store will stock smaller selections of home décor, beauty, apparel and accessories, some consumer electronics, toys and sporting goods. 

Target has been remodeling stores across D-FW. The Minneapolis-based retailer said earlier this year that it will spend $220 million to remodel its local stores.

Robert A.M. Stern Architects (RAMSA) to design new science center at St. Mark's:

 

Project Location

 

A15028%20St%20Marks%20Science%20Center_0

 



Winn Science Center

 

The 79,000-square-foot Winn Science Center will organize biology, chemistry, and earth science labs around a skylit central commons. A large glazed entry porch will lead to a double-height lounge, welcoming daily student traffic and evening visitors to public exhibitions; a Maker Lab and lower-school lab will stand to either side of the lounge. The new two-story building will also provide a 250-seat lecture hall and a research greenhouse. A planetarium, visible from Preston Road, will serve as a symbol of St. Mark’s position as a leader in science education.

The new building will open to a south-facing teaching garden dedicated to the flora and fauna of Texas. The Center will complete a quadrangle with the existing Green Library and Lower School, extending the pattern of small courtyard gardens that is characteristic of the St. Mark’s campus. The adjacent McDermott-Green Hall will be renovated as part of this project to accommodate physics and general science labs.

The Winn Science Center will carry forward the palette established by architect Charles Tapley in the 1960s with St. Joe’s brick and cooper roofs. The project is targeting LEED Gold certification.

High-rise mixed-use project will replace old Sears store at Dallas' Valley View

 

1512420175-midtownoverhead.jpg?auto=form

 

Project Location

 

A New York real estate investor is teaming up with Dallas developer KDC to build up to 1 million square feet of office space as part of a mixed-use project in Far North Dallas.



The planned development by Seritage Growth Properties and KDC is part of the 430-acre Dallas Midtown district along the north side of LBJ Freeway.

The 23-acre development will include two office towers, retail, a cinema and more on the site of the closed Sears store at the old Valley View mall.

"This project will stand out as an iconic landmark while still blending into the surrounding community, creating strong connectivity and pedestrian access in a sustainable environment."



KDC is North Texas' busiest office developer, building projects including Toyota's new North American headquarters in Plano and the huge State Farm Insurance regional campus in Richardson.

The commercial property company has been working for several months on a plan for site of the old Sears store, which shut down earlier this year.

Early plans call for a complex of shops, restaurants, apartments and a hotel as part of the high-rise development.

 

1512420139-midtownstreetview.jpg?auto=fo

 

A park sits in the middle of the complex, which was designed by Omniplan and 505 Design.



"The Preston Road frontage begs for some retail," Guthrey said. "We are looking at two- to three-story urban retail, and there is multifamily planned to the west and midrise apartments or condos.

"It is a very mixed-use plan."

"Seritage's plans are going to be a transformational project that converts the Sears site into a highly productive office and first-class retail, dining and entertainment destination," James Bry, Seritage executive vice president of development and construction, said in a statement.

Developer Hillwood Urban and EF Properties LC are working on plans for office buildings and mixed-use construction on the site of the old Macy's department store at Valley View.



And Beck Ventures is planning additional development on the rest of the mall site.

Other developers are building apartments, hotels and retail space on surrounding properties east of the Galleria.

Old strip buildings in Deep Ellum will give way to high-rise with apartments and shopping

 

1513011458-crescentcantondeepellum.jpg?a

 

Project Location

Construction will start in the next few weeks on an urban style mixed-use development in Dallas' popular Deep Ellum district.

The 7-story development will bring apartments and streetfront retail to an area that's seeing widespread new development.

"I think there is an opportunity to bring some basic neighborhood services there," Blackwell said.



Designed by Baltimore architect Hord Coplan Macht, the building mimics early 20th century industrial and commercial properties. Blackwell said the project — called Novel Deep Ellum

— "borrowed from Deep Ellum's Continental Gin buildings and Henry Ford's Model T plant a block away.

"It's appropriately gritty for Deep Ellum."

The new complex will include 230 apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail space. Access to the interior of the development would be through an open area in the middle of the block, providing easy access to the rest of the shops.

Project Location

 

LST Marketing is relocating its head office from Indianapolis to a building in Dallas' Knox Street district north of downtown.



The company will open its new headquarters in the Travis Walk building at 4514 Travis Street.

"We're very excited about moving into the new office by early spring," CEO Starke Taylor said. "We have clients in Dallas and we realized we needed to have a bigger presence here

"We put together a plan to be more focused on the Texas market."

"We are growing pretty quickly in Dallas, and I think by the end of 2018 we hope to have 25 to 30 employees," Taylor said.



The 7-year-old company specializes in promoting events and representing sports, entertainment and sponsorship clients.

"LST Marketing's new corporate office underscores the level of growth we're seeing in our region," said JLL's Brad Selner. "As more companies make their way to Dallas-Fort Worth, the business opportunities for firms like LST Marketing continue to mount."

"We looked at probably 15 different spaces - everywhere from the tollway and LBJ to Central Expressway and downtown and Uptown," he said. "We are looking to be in a more urban walking environment and we wanted a space that represented what we do as an agency."

Dallas, Austin are among 20 finalists for Amazon's coveted HQ2

 

1516292315-2015_NM_27DallasSkyline1.jpg?

 

Two Texas metro areas made it on Amazon's list:  Austin, a perennial favorite and the home of Whole Foods Market, which Amazon now owns. And yes, Big D.  Houston didn't make the cut, and San Antonio didn't enter the competition.  

Both Austin and Dallas "have proven themselves to be among the most sought-after locations for companies looking to grow and thrive," Abbott said. He said the state's "low-tax and limited-regulation environment will appeal to a company's bottom line."



Abbott also noted the state's workforce, calling it "one of the best — if not the best" in the country. Abbott played no favorites and said he believed "either Austin or Dallas" is an ideal fit for Amazon.

While other cities are naming big rewards to attract HQ2, Texas is still keeping specific financial incentives secret.

Project Location

 

Developer Alliance Residential plans to build the 335-unit project on a 2-acre site at Cole and Armstrong avenues. It's just across the street from the 17-story Highland Park Place office tower. And the new Trader Joe's grocery and apartment block is on the opposite corner.



"This will definitely will be the most high-profile location we have done," said Alliance development director Nick Wilhelmson. "It's one of the best neighborhoods in Dallas."

Dallas architect GFF designed the new rental community with seven levels stepping back from the street across from the office tower on the north side. The building will be five levels at the other end near Oliver Street.



"We want to open up the sidewalks and make it feel walkable," Wilhelmson said. "We have two large courtyards off the sidewalk, too," he said. "There is no ground floor retail — it's pure residential."

Project Location

 

A developer plans to reuse a medical building in the Bishop Arts area as part of a 135-unit residential complex.

The five-story former hospital is on the east side of Madison between Ninth and Tenth. It consists of two buildings, which are connected by a skybridge, and the developer plans to construct an additional building on the north side of the hospital. A zoning variance is required for the developers to reuse the existing skybridge, zoned for medical use over the alley between Ninth and Tenth, for residential purposes.

The main building has a 5,000-square-foot basement, which they’re planning to turn into an actual theater, to be leased to a theater company for live plays.



“We want to make it look old-world as much as we can. The project is a unique opportunity,” he says. “We’re designing it to look like an old theater that was converted to apartments.”

The first apartments could be delivered in late spring or early summer 2019.
