Galleria Area Construction

Recommended Posts

This thread is to announce the Galleria area construction news. This is an area that is ONLY starting to see a residential transfromation. It started with Verdoma. We have a sort of "village" being built and a second residential tower being built.

NO comparisons to the Houston Galleria. These areas are vastly different respective to Houston and Dallas. This is a thread like the other two to only ANNOUNCE and comment on new projects with NO debates.

This is a project that I am actually working on right now.

Galleria to get a trendy neighbor

Apartment-retail plan may help make area pedestrian-friendly

By STEVE BROWN / The Dallas Morning News

"Developers have broken ground near the Galleria on an urban-style apartment and retail complex. Called Village on the Green, the project is on the northeast corner of Noel and Alpha roads and will contain more than 200 rental homes, restaurants and shops....The more than $50 million project is being built by a Staubach Co. affiliate and developer Robert Shaw, who was one of the builders responsible for kicking off the Uptown boom....Village on the Green is the most ambitious of several new developments on tap for the area around the big shopping mall and office tower complex."

"..."You really do have a transforming of that neighborhood into a more urban form with the Galleria as an anchor," Mr. Shaw said Wednesday...."

" Built around a small park, the five-story complex will have about 90,000 square feet of high-end retail on the lower level. The apartments will be built above.

The contemporary-style buildings were designed by architects RTKL Associates, which has worked on other mixed-use developments in the area, including Addison Circle and the Shops at Legacy in Plano....."

Whether it's Dallas or Houston it's a good idea. Maybe if it's successful in Dallas, it will spread southward.

"...DALLAS-A $100-million condominium tower will break ground in February on a 38,000-sf tract, once tagged as a hotel site for the Galleria mall.

".... European-style tower will take 18 months to complete. Ground will break on time, Vexler vows, saying his financing doesn't require any presales...."

WHAT?! This can't be true! Where will I buy my Roche Bobois?! This can't be happening. Where is the picture? Where is the website? Is this a LIE? There are no signs. I was shopping there just the other day and Roche Bobois did not say anything about closing or moving.

I wouldn't fret. The site they are talking about is an empty track at the southwest Corner of Noel and Alpha. Its the last empty track that butts up against the Macy's parking Garage. Roche is staying there.
