I dunno. The tower is a gem, hands down. And we couldn´t contend that green spaces, however modest, are opposite density in the same way that parking lots are. Even the base of the building isn´t problematic, given how far from passers-by it would (will?) be. The greatest disappointment in this development will be the ¨auto court¨. That´s a proper #fail by any measure. :-/

Mercedes-Benz zooming into bigger future in far north Fort Worth



Quote:
To accommodate its expanded workforce, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services will move into a new 200,000-square-foot building to be built near its current offices at Alliance in far north Fort Worth.

The state-of-the art building will be built less than a mile north of the 164,000-square-foot building that the business now occupies off Interstate 35W near Westport Parkway. Construction will begin in early 2018, and the company hopes to move in by early 2019.
Quote:
BOKA Powell, a Dallas-based design firm, will serve as the design architect for the building and site development. JLL Fort Worth Project and Development Services of Dallas will oversee the project for Mercedes-Benz.

New Knox Street district apartment plans include affordable units



Project Location

Quote:
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."
Quote:
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."

Apartments, live theater planned for former Bishop Arts medical building



Project Location

Quote:
A developer plans to reuse a medical building in the Bishop Arts area as part of a 135-unit residential complex.
Quote:
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.
Quote:
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.”
Quote:
The first apartments could be delivered in late spring or early summer 2019.

Baylor to open a new $30 million heart hospital in McKinney in 2019



Project Location

Quote:
Construction may begin this month on a new 35,000-square-foot heart hospital slated to open in first quarter of 2019 on the Baylor Scott and White Medical Center McKinney campus.

The new Heart Hospital Baylor McKinney will serve patients in need of cardiovascular care in Collin and Grayson counties, as well as in parts of Oklahoma, according to Baylor Scott and White Health executives. The facility will sit on the northwest corner of the existing campus.
Quote:
The facility will include an outpatient nursing unit and four procedure rooms. It will have 22 ambulatory surgery beds and offer more complex heart procedures, such as electrophysiological services and catheterization, said Baylor’s chief strategy officer, LaVone Arthur, in a phone call.

It’s the latest expansion to the nearly 57-acre Baylor McKinney campus that opened in 2012 with a $195 million, 95-bed hospital on the northwest corner of U.S. 380 and Lake Forest Drive.
Quote:
The heart hospital will cost an estimated $30 million to construct, according to Baylor Scott and White Health, and add 60 staff members to the medical campus that already employs over 600.

Good to see thoughtfully-planned townhomes in Dallas.

Sylvan|Thirty Developer Adding a Third Piece in West Dallas



Project Location

Quote:
Local developer Oaxaca Interests LLC broke ground the second week of January on a 16-unit townhome development in West Dallas.

This latest project, located at 707 West Commerce Street, is only two blocks north of Oaxaca Interests’ flagship Sylvan|Thirty development.
Quote:
Oaxaca Interests President Brent Jackson worked with the architects of Far+Dang on what he describes as a “foward-thinking approach to design.”

“Known for their incredible use of space and natural light, the duo’s progressive and contemporary design aesthetic falls perfectly in line with our vision for 707,” Jackson said in a prepared statement.

The landscape architecture firm Hocker Design Group was brought on to create the landscaping and hardscaping details. This includes a generous 15-foot wide sidewalk with streetscaping along West Commerce Street.

Unit sizes range from 1,380 to 1,510 square feet and will start at $324,000.

^^^ Very nice! Downtown has really been picking up the pace on residential construction, hopefully this will actually be built, I remember seeing renderings of the garage base in the past.
