Caruth TOD: Richardson Mixed-Use

Recommended Posts

Another huge mixed-use development is on the drawing boards in Richardson

Zoning was just approved by the Richardson Plan Commission for 1.35 million square feet of office space, a 150-room hotel and 60,000 square feet of shopping.


There will be 1,250 urban style apartments, to be developed by Trammell Crow Residential.

The latest zoning allows for high-rise office construction at the northeast corner of Renner Road and U.S. 75 and “freeway hi-rise” buildings of up to 300 feet tall at the southeast corner of Bush and 75.


Mid-rise mixed-use buildings would be constructed along the DART line.


Designs for the project include a greenbelt along Spring Creek.


"A corridor has been left to construct the proposed Cotton Belt rail line," Johnson said.


This project is going to be huge," Altemore said. "It's going to be a bookend for the CityLine development."

From GFF:

Strategically located at the intersection of President George Bush Turnpike and U.S. 75, this 85 acre tract sits next to the existing DART Bush Turnpike Station.  In an effort to ensure the zoning entitlements and land uses for both sides of the rail station, a joint application was submitted by three property owners—all seeking to support the development of a pedestrian oriented, mixed-use urban environment, with convenient access to rail transit, shopping, employment, housing, the Spring Creek trail system and regional retail services.


As part of this City approved submission was a regulating plan, street sections and planned development guidelines in the form of a form based code. This code enabled the flexibility as required by future developers, but also the predictability sought by the City of Richardson City Council. Together these cumulative tracts' zoning will foster a major regional employment center with significant regional retail and residential uses within a convenient walking distance from the existing station and potential transfer station to the Cotton Belt rail line.

More about the development, including construction dates here.
Additionally, The Spring Creek nature area has recently been doubled in size. Read about it here.

The parking garage for the 351-unit Alexan Cityline has been completed. 


First units are planned to be ready by May.
