New Dallas Developments

Recommended Posts

GFF is working on an infill development just north of Galleria Dallas. 

 
The project, called The Muse, will replace the surface parking lot in-between Galleria North II and Z Gallerie. 
 
View map here.
 

The Muse is a creatively conceived infill development on the parking lot. Existing surface parking will be replaced with an 8-story mixed use building composed of 272 residential units above a 4-story parking garage. 

 

A vibrant new street is created between the old and the new buildings, lined with restaurants and focused on a dynamic central plaza space with water, art, movies and significant pedestrian choreography. New restaurant leases will convert the rear of existing stores into "fronts" activating the mews. The roof of the parking structure forms the pool terrace for the apartments.

Oak Cliff's proposed I-35E deck park is now one step closer to reality:

The council of governments’ Regional Transportation Council approved the funding plan last week. It had been reported previously that the deck park would cost $50 million, but Texas Department of Transportation DFW spokesman Tony Hartzel confirmed it will cost $30 million.

 

$20 million will come from the council, and $10 million will come from the City of Dallas or private funding. The overall Southern Gateway project will cost about $656 million.

I bought and am currently buying property around there; don't know much about anything but hope it turns out to be a good investment. Do you guys think that this park would be plus for my investment?

 

There are several factors to consider:

  • Your purchase date
  • Your intended use for the property
  • Your intended timeframe for owning the property
  • When/if construction begins on the deck park

Of course the list is non-exhaustive. 

 

If the park is approved, nearby land value should skyrocket, although not as much as with KWP.

Not a new development, per se, but a welcomed addition to one of Dallas' business centers.

The concept’s 13th location is under construction in Dallas at Preston Center. The bakery, at 8319 Preston Road, is slated to open in March.

“Dallas was top on the list."

The concept is also looking at building in Santa Monica, California; Chicago; Boston; and São Paulo, Brazil.

This whole thread does seem to broadly feature proposals with pretty renderings about as much as real projects actively underway

Perhaps the 'Dallas development' topic should be split into 'Ideas', some of which may come true, and 'underway' for those projects actually in process

With all due respect, this thread is titled "New Dallas Development," not "Dallas Developments Under Construction."

Good point - that title opens it up

Meanwhile, I think it's nice to see both - one place to see what may be coming (including those pretty renderings mentioned above), and another to see what is in actually process to be completed soon (perhaps already in an existing thread)

Vickery Meadows will soon be home to a new development.

 
New retail, a farmers market and a White Rock Creek Trail connector are planned for The Hill.
 
View the PDF here.
 

West of the site is the first phase of Preston Hollow Village development, with Presbyterian Hospital located to the east. Also notable within the adjacent complex are a series of multifamily developments currently underway between Walnut Hill and Royal Ln. 

 

The current proposal, referred to as The Hill, has been proposed as a first phase of development for the overall project site,” it begins. “Phase I will focus on retrofitting an existing, auto oriented shopping center in an effort to transform the existing and proposed buildings into a more walkable series of shops and restaurants arranged around a landscaped and amenitized central common space.

 

TIF reimbursement is currently being considered to augment costs related specifically to public realm improvements around and throughout the site, improvements to the alley ROW located along the northern edge of the project, and potential trail connection opportunities to link up various existing trail systems located in proximity to the development site.

Construction begins on multimillion-dollar redo of former Belo Building

Candace Carlisle

Hartland-Mackie is hosting a ceremonial groundbreaking Tuesday to mark the occasion.

"We are seeing downtown Dallas become more walkable and we wanted to take the divider away from outside to inside," Hartland-Mackie told me.

The redevelopment includes adding glass walls to the lobby of the tower, a French-style restaurant being created by former Mansion on Turtle Creek chef Bruno Davaillon, a sky garden on the top floor of the tower, 200-person conference facility and a fitness center.
 
The restaurant is in the early concept phase.

The tower is slated for completion in the first quarter of 2017.

Carrolton-based Atlantic Hotels Ltd. has purchased the vacant Dallas Health & Rehabilitation Center building on Gaston Avenue near Baylor Medical Center.

The 7-story medical building has been empty for years. The 70,000-square-foot former medical building was built in 1964 and is just a block from Baylor’s campus.

 

Atlantic Hotels has filed permits within the City of Dallas to convert the building into an Element by Westin Hotel.

He said East Dallas needs the hotel rooms. “There is a dire need of the hotel near the hospital,” Molubhoy said.

A major win for The Cedars neighborhood and historic preservationists:

In a city where history lasts as long as it takes to crank up the bulldozer, this truly is big and breaking news: One of the oldest houses in The Cedars has been granted a stay of execution.

 
Time Warner Cable, which only weeks ago was preparing to raze the circa-1885 Victorian home overlooking R.L. Thornton Freeway, now says it will pay to move the structure to a nearby location.
 
“Time Warner Cable has committed to working with preservation leaders to relocate the home,” says a statement company spokesperson Melissa Sorola sent to The Dallas Morning News Thursday. “This plan serves everyone’s interests: The home will be preserved in a new location, and Time Warner Cable can move forward with construction on a new hub that will add capacity and reliability for our downtown customers.”

Said Emery, the house serves as “a reminder of what began as one of Dallas’s first ‘Streetcar Suburbs,’ and continued as one of the city’s first neighborhoods that middle- and upper-class Jewish families called home. The house holds a visually prominent perch over I-30 and has captured the attention and wonder of not only neighbors, but daily commuters.

“They have a very quick time line but have given us some breathing room. And they’re happy to have played a major role in seeing this house saved. That’s really good news.”

More about this feud later. Stay tuned.

 

Meadows Building’s new owners finally confirm plan to raze historic wing along Greenville Ave.

Robert Wilonsky
January 28, 2016

 

In the press release, GlenStar insists the Meadows — especially the two-story building along Greenville — is but a “shadow” of its former self and in desperate need of a makeover. Present tenants, many of whom are architects and designers who’ve sunk tens of thousands of dollars into recent renovations, have argued otherwise as they’re being told to move.

 

Architect Max Levy, who’s been in the Meadows for more than 30 years and witnessed first-hand the 1985 demolition of the wing along N. Central Expressway, said in December that to “destroy the other one, it’s like amputating two arms.”
 
GlenStar disagrees.

“By implementing a program of thoughtful restoration and preservation, coupled with appropriate urban and landscape planning, the redevelopment plans will celebrate the well-known, nine-story Meadows Building and give it the prominence it has been lacking in recent years. 

 

To make way for this vision, the plan entails removal of the annex building in favor of creating a dynamic pedestrian friendly mixed-use site that will highlight the Meadows Building and provide for a significant investment and revitalization of the Greenville Avenue corridor that will benefit the Meadows Building and bring vitality to this property and the surrounding neighborhood.”

5GStudio has designed a 320-unit apartment building for North Dallas. 

 
The development is to be built on two empty lots, just east of City View.
 
Both the Muse and Modera Galleria are within two blocks walking distance. 

Alpha Road Apartments is a 320 unit multi-family residential project located in Dallas, TX. This community is 352,778sf consisting of two expansive pool decks with generous outdoor space, a fitness room, and party room which opens to the pool deck through a wall of glass bi-folding doors. The layout and locations of the outdoor amenity spaces are at the heart of the complex with apartments rising around them. 
 
The materiality of the design respects the context through the use of brick and stucco and bringing interest to the design through the composition of these materials. To define the project an aluminum louver system stands at the entry of the development providing a memorable icon and gateway into the complex. Alpha Road Apartments is a master planned community providing a home for its residents within an urban environment.

‘It’s showtime’: The Cedars is about to debut the Alamo Drafthouse it’s been awaiting for years

Robert Wilonsky
January 30, 2016
 
AlamoExterior.jpg

The Alamo Drafthouse, a seven-screen multiplex, bar and restaurant, is nearly finished on South Lamar Street in the shadow of downtown Dallas.
 
Crews are finishing out the 700-seat, seven-auditorium theater for its Feb. 12 “soft” opening, attaching small tables to leather seats, building outdoor patio structures, installing the elevator, polishing the 3,000-square-foot kitchen, decorating karaoke rooms that look like space ships and the insides of a pinball machine.
“The reason Jack approached the Alamo was he wanted a theater as a neighborhood anchor,” DiGaetano said. “He wanted a place where people could gather.”
 
AlamoPatio.jpg
 
The Alamo, which will have a restaurant and bar (the Vetted Well) on the second floor and some 400 parking spots next to and behind the theater, is intended to change that. This is all-hours traffic coming directly to The Cedars’ front door.

What a cute little building. But has it shrunk? I thought it was supposed to be 20 stories. This looks like it's only 19 stories.

Size isn't everything, Houston19514.

The street-level interaction and seven-floors of underground parking make One Uptown a stellar development, uncommon for any Texas city outside of Austin.

While not a physical development, Dallas' film industry continues to grow:

Reese Witherspoon-produced pilot will be filmed in Dallas, highlighting the city's urban vibrancy.

Read about it here.

 

Beat me to it. :D

I hope the new show goes very well. I want a show based in Dallas NOT called Dallas.

Houston only has one building over 500 feet going up (609 Main).

 

Dallas has some high quality projects rising. Just went up there for market and color me impressed with Uptown. I wish our Midtown had developed similarly rather than the big midrise block busters that we got.

Wow this looks like a tiny twin of 2929 Weslayan! I like it haha

Similar, but One Uptown is more reminiscent of South Beach.

Overall, One Uptown is a higher-quality project than 2929 Weslayan because of the underground parking, all-glass exterior and location.

One Uptown is nice but I wouldn't trade 2727 Westlayan for it at all. 

 

Just like height isn't everything, walkability isn't everything, either. 2727 Westlayan can be seen from 10 miles away in every direction. You won't be able to see One Uptown unless you're driving down McKinney because its so short, it only works up close - and even that hasn't been confirmed because it isn't done yet. There are several new towers in downtown and uptown Houston that have plenty of street presence and walkability. 

 

"Quality" is a matter of opinion, but I think towers that work up close as well as at a distance have an advantage. 2727 Westlayan does both in my opinion. Who says architecture can't be enjoyed for the 99.9% of the population who don't live in the immediate neighborhood? It's nice to be able to appreciate nice architecture and tall buildings at a distance too. 2727 Westlayan looks spectacular up close and from several distant freeways.

With all due respect, the point of urban living is to live in immediate proximity to neighborhood amenities.

Building a tower largely surrounded by parking lots and drive-through banks isn't my idea of great urban design.

Consequently, a shorter building located along a major thoroughfare including bars, restaurants, grocery and mass transit is a better urban design.

Consider the following Google Streetview photos taken of McKinney Avenue and Weslayan, respectively.

Both photos were taken at the base of each residential tower.
