Same here, I can't imagine what the Dallas skyline is going to look like in 5yrs. with all these proposed towers on the drawing boards.

Man, I didn't realize there was so much on the drawing board for uptown. It will be fun to watch it all unfold. I'm really glad they are going to finish Stoneleigh, that has been bugging me for years.

Your first look at Forest City's plans for 20-story residential tower on old Hank Haney Golf Center site in West Village
By

Last summer our Steve Brown noted that Forest City, the folks behind the downtown Mercantile and Continental redos, was making a play for the land once known as Hank Haney's driving range on McKinney and Blackburn across from the West Village. (The move particularly traumatized one young comer on the amateur circuit.) At the time Steve wrote his piece no real deal was in place, but Cityplace Co. Neal Sleeper said it was close, after which Cleveland-based Forest City would build 20 stories of residential and retail, which Good Fulton & Farrell would design.

Above, that's what it'll look like -- more or less. Those renderings are courtesy the briefing you'll find below, part of a Cityplace TIF chitchat the Dallas City Council's Economic Development Committee will have tomorrow morning first thing. The reason it's coming to council: Forest City Residential Group, Inc. says it needs $2.851 million in TIF reimbursements to make the 20-story, 391-apartment unit project "financially feasible."

Very interesting, and good that they are going with the pedestal side on McKinney, meaning the northern most interior street of the West Village will line up with this project's courtyard. This orientation will also have the more street friendly sides facing CityPlace Blvd and Blackburn, creating a rare, cohesive new urbanist experience. Probably the most cohesive new urbanist area in Dallas.

Here are a few renderings of the 22 story Stoneleigh Residential Tower as it will look completed in Uptown/Downtown Dallas. As mentioned above, construction recently resumed on the tower with its 75 residences and it is now back under active development to be completed on the Dallas cityscape.

This particular section of Uptown/Downtown is going to become very active with the Stoneleigh back under construction along with the two announced Harwood International towers (the 27 story "The Square" and the 31 story "Ciel") that will begin construction two or three blocks away from the Stoneleigh Tower with both just on the other side of the 31 story Azure Condo tower which is located right next to the Stoneleigh.

17 story apartment tower now under construction at 3030 Carlisle in Uptown Dallas

The company is constructing a 17 story apartment building in Uptown


Excerpts:

By Steve Brown, DMN
05 April 2012

Doug Chesnut and Tom Bakewell have done some big apartment projects.

The two Dallas developers turned Downtown’s 36-story Republic National Bank building into rental homes, and they built the 26-story Park 17 high-rise in Uptown.

But their biggest deal was starting their own company last summer.

“Our industry has its best demographics in 30 years,” said Chesnut, whose new StreetLights Residential is already working on three projects. “If you were ever going to start a company, this was the time to do it.”
.....

Chesnut and Bakewell formed StreetLights Residential after working for years for nationwide apartment developer and investor Gables Residential.
.....

StreetLights formed an equity investment partnership with Dallas’ Hill family and tied up a prime Uptown building site on Carlisle Street for its first deal.

“We put that Carlisle property under contract before we even had our equity venture complete,” Bakewell said.

The nascent developer has begun knocking down the old low-rise office buildings on the property to make way for their 17 story apartment tower.
.....

With about 12,400 apartments under construction in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, developers from across the country are looking at North Texas for expansion. D-FW is one of the top apartment building markets in the nation.

Love the Romanesque design! Hope the materials used let it live up to the beauty it conveys in the rendering.

Massive 10,000 unit residential project underway at North Lake in Dallas





This is a significant project for the City of Dallas. From the article, Billingsley is going to be very aggressive in developing this project and the masterplan above shows the extent of the project's size.

Phase 1's 673 apartments are shown on the masterplan in red. Preparation ground work is shown in the second image above.

Billingsley said:

“Our hope and dream is we build a master-planned rental living community.”

“It is a site close to tremendous employment, freeways and great neighborhoods.

“In the first phase, we are building three different neighborhoods,” she said.

Designed by WDG Architecture, the buildings will range from high-end townhouse-style units to contemporary Texas-themed designs.

Each project will have a different feel and will tie in with walking trails and other features, including resort-style swimming pools, project manager Tom Holland said.

“It’s all about creating neighborhoods and not self-contained complexes,” he said.

The developer has land set aside for retail, restaurants and the like.

“We have 82 acres on LBJ Freeway that we have saved at the project’s primary entry point so that we can have retail to service the development,” Billingsley said. “We will also have restaurants on the lake.”

North Lake, which is filled with water acquired from local water districts, will be reduced to about 300 acres. The old power plant at the north end of the reservoir is being removed.

Along the north end of the project land is available for future development; this could by a TOD which would be a natural for what Billingsley is doing here.

As mentioned in the article, the lake is being reduced slightly in size but will be upgraded significantly and will play a major role in the development.

This project alone will easily add 15,000 to 20,000 people to Dallas' population in the upcoming decade.

This is fantastic news for the City of Dallas!

That Cypress Waters development is ENORMOUS. Hard to believe that 673 apartments occupies that small a piece of the whole pie. I couldn't help but be put off by the amount of parking lots, especially around the commercial section, though I understand it's necessary. However, I was comparing its location to the current reaches of the DART light rail system, and it seems it would be relatively easy to construct a branch off the upcoming Orange Line extension into this development. They could even eventually connect it to the Green Line near Carrollton, allowing for further connections to DFW Airport, downtown Dallas and elsewhere.

That would connect to the oft discussed and debated Cotton Belt Line. They even have a station on the rendered map.

Beck Ventures has big plans for Dallas’ Valley View Center mall

On Monday morning, Jeff Beck and sons Scott and Jarrod stood on the sixth floor of the office tower at Preston Road and LBJ Freeway looking down at their new purchase: the 39-year-old Valley View Center, surrounded by a sea of empty parking spaces. One day in the not-too-distant future,
http://www.dallasnews.com/business/r...#ssStory549165

The mall as it appeared in 1982...


Rendering of the proposed redevelopment...


The article is behind a paywall but the plan is to transform Valley View from a typical mall to a mix-used development. Sounds like a bigger version of the Shops at Park Lane. They plan on keeping the JC Penny but rebuilding it with a more impressive exterior. The renderings show the AMC theater staying. They plan on condos and hotel rooms and maybe a grocery store anchor (similar to the Whole Foods at Park Lane).

The developers say nothing will happen right now and the redevelopment will be more gradual but not too far off.

Good to see that they are finally trying to do something with Valley View. That mall has been really empty lately

There is construction fencing on both sides of Carlisle by Bowen. Will be cool to see these two buildings go up across from each other at the same time.
