Brain Performance Institute Takes New Shape
October 14, 2015





Quote:
The Brain Performance Institute is getting its own home — a new 62,000-square-foot facility that will bring together the latest research and training techniques designed to improve cognitive skills and health.

On Wednesday, UT Dallas’ Center for BrainHealth will hold a groundbreaking ceremony for the institute’s building, which is expected to open in spring 2017 in Dallas. The new facility will be built in the empty parking lot adjacent to the Center for BrainHealth near Mockingbird Lane and Harry Hines Boulevard in Dallas.

“The Brain Performance Institute will be the first facility of its kind — not an acute treatment center, but a place where healthy people as well as people who have sustained a brain injury or disease have the opportunity to help their brain become healthier, more efficient and less stressed,” said Dr. Sandra Bond Chapman, founder and chief director of the Center for BrainHealth, and Dee Wyly Distinguished University Chair in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences.
Quote:
Page Southerland Page, a leading international architecture and engineering firm based in Dallas, drew inspiration for the building’s design from the anatomy of the human brain, specifically the frontal lobes. Brain training rooms, event spaces and other clinical offerings will be in an elliptical, three-story glass structure connected to a rectangular building filled with administrative offices.

A giant sneak peek at the makeover planned for 107-year-old Dallas High School downtown
Robert Wilonsky
November 20, 2015



Quote:
Per the presentation, which you can spend plenty of time with below, Matthews Southwest will remake the high school into a “sustainability designed speculative office with a potential restaurant or retail component on Level 1.”
Quote:
The patio-covered renderings, of course, show far more than just a potential restaurant, and Matthews says “there will be a unique food component” — though at this point he’s not yet prepared to say how he’ll fill the first floor, aside from a mention of “restaurants and bars.”
Quote:
At today’s panel review, there was more talk about Phase 2 — three planned offices, a hotel and a parking structure — than what Matthews has planned for the high school. The panel hopes it becomes a true transit-oriented development, a gathering space connecting DART’s Pearl/Arts District Station, the Arts District and the coming Carpenter Park. That, says Matthews, is the plan.

How you can watch when they implode the old St. Paul University Hospital Sunday morning
Robert Wilonsky
November 20, 2015

Quote:
Once the site’s cleared, says Russell Rian, UT Southwestern’s assistant director of public relations, it will eventually become home to UT Southwestern’s west campus, which will include a new thermal energy plant and more than 5,200 new parking spaces and two 1.1 million square feet worth of New and Exciting.

“The first building, scheduled for completion in April 2018, will be a nine-story, 302,500-square-foot building with a mix of educational, clinical, and academic office space and a parking garage with connections to the neighboring Professional Office Buildings,” he says via email. “Two levels are dedicated to simulation labs for trainees, and six levels are dedicated to clinic and faculty academic offices. Clinics will include urology, cardiology, CVT surgery, vascular surgery, otolaryngology, endocrinology, rheumatology, allergy, infectious diseases, and genetics.”

Dallas real estate socialite Candy Evans has more information on Ltd. Edition 2505:

Quote:
“The lobby experience has been expanded and made more lush,” architect Siamak Hariri told me, “We are expanding the full court of the front landscaping.”
Quote:
He mentioned a beautiful, cobblestoned drive from Turtle Creek, four motorcourts beautifully tailored with lush landscaping. What he wants to achieve in the lobby is a distinct sense of arrival into a room — a huge “ah ha!” defined by a European edge, with glimpses from every view of the vast expansive gardens that will distinguish this project from just about any in Dallas. (Even the bar will have garden views.) The architecture will expand into the garden, in fact —

“The whole lobby expands right through and to the gardens,” says Siamak. “As it does in any luxurious, gorgeous estate.”
Quote:
Restraint is difficult to achieve, said Siamak. He assured me his design will not be shouting at us.
Quote:
The new pricing per square foot is an average of $799 for floors 2 through 13, floors 14 and up will be at about $1000 per square foot.

Either that West Dallas complex is one that was announced months ago or it looks like one that was announced months ago. Of course, creativity doesn't seem to be a strong suit when it comes to "wraps".

Ventana is going to be a nice project in a convenient location. I think taking some of that surface parking and putting in an outdoor space like a garden would be nice, but oh well.

Not a development, per se, but an entity which directly affects D/FW's economy, thus influencing development:

Japan Airlines resumes flights from D/FW today
Sheryl Jean
November 30, 2015



Quote:
Japan Airlines resumes flying Monday from Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to Tokyo’s Narita International Airport for the first time in more than 14 years.

The Japanese carrier initially will operate four flights a week but has said it might expand to daily service in the spring. It will fly a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner jet.
Quote:
D/FW, the nation’s fourth-busiest airport, sees more than 63 million travelers a year and offers flights to more than 200 destinations, including 57 international cities. Nearly a third of the international destinations were added in the last five years.

Quote:
Construction on the first office buildings would start in the second half of 2016, according to the development application. The first office buildings would be ready by the end of 2018.
