Downtown Dallas' 113-year-old Purse Building getting modern office makeover with rooftop deck



Project Location

"We are excited to finally get started," Ragan said. "The demolition will take four to five months, and from there we move straight into construction."

The project should take 15 to 18 months to wrap up.
Quote:
Renovation plans for the 70,000-square-foot brick and timber building include a rooftop deck.

Nice. We need a lot more infill in this area as well to connect the West End to the heart of downtown better.

The 39-story skyscraper will be constructed across the street from American Airlines Center arena and next door to the W Dallas Victory Hotel & Residences.

According to Hines' building permit information filed with the city, the project at 3099 Olive Street will cost more than $138 million. The residential tower will include 334 apartments and 9,500 square feet of retail space.
Quote:
Hines representatives so far aren't talking about the project. But word of the huge building surfaced last month in city planning documents.

The apartment tower is to be built on a site that in 2007 was to be used for the 43-story Mandarin Oriental Hotel & Residences. But the recession hit before work on the tower began and the project never got off the ground.

Victory Park's current tallest high-rise — the 31-story W Hotel — opened next door to the building site in 2006.

New office and retail high-rise gets green light on Dallas' Knox Street



Project Location

Quote:
Developers have gotten the green light to proceed with the largest new building project in Dallas' popular Knox Street district.

Longtime Knox Street merchant Weir's Furniture and real estate firm Four Rivers Capital plan to build a new retail and office tower on the furniture store's Knox Street site.

Dallas' City Council and plan commission have given full approval for the redevelopment.
Quote:
The 297,000-square-foot high-rise at Knox and Travis streets will include 250,000 square feet of offices, a new store for Weir's and additional retail.

Weir's will relocate temporarily when construction starts — probably in early 2019.
Quote:
The building — just a block from the Katy Trail — will take 18 to 24 months to complete.

The developers hope to have the work coincide with construction the city plans to improve the street and sidewalks along Knox.
Quote:
As part of the new development, the historic Soda Fountain building — for decades the Highland Park Pharmacy — will be preserved on the corner.

Hong Kong’s Lesso Group plans large shopping development along US 380




Quote:
The Lesso project plans to include hotels.

A Chinese conglomerate has plans to build a large shopping development on 77 acres in North Frisco.

The Frisco Planning and Zoning Commission on Tuesday approved 4-1 a rezoning request that could allow a multi-level shopping center with additional retail, office, hotel and urban living residential on 77 acres south of US 380 and 3,500 feet west of Dallas Parkway.

Lesso America, a subsidiary of building material manufacturer China Lesso Group Holdings Ltd., has owned the land for two years, and the company plans on moving its American headquarters to the development. The development would be done in three phases with three different districts: a frontage district with a mixture of retail, hotel and office; a lifestyle district that would contain most of the retail with one urban living tower; and a southern district that would contain mostly urban living units, as well as some office, hotel and retail space.

According to city documents, Lesso’s plans is in compliance with the city’s future land use plan, which calls for 70 percent commercial and 30 percent residential for an urban center. The project’s plans include 1,200 urban living units, which is below the 1,270 units recommended by the city.

Parking lot lights have been removed, and equipment is on site.

Construction set to start on 41-story high-rise in Dallas’ Arts District


LaReunion

Project Location

Quote:
After years of waiting, developers are set to break ground today on Atelier, which in its most recent incarnation is a 41-story luxury high‐rise in the Dallas Arts District.

The mixed‐use development, which is marketing itself as the tallest rental tower in the Dallas area, will be comprised of 364 residential tower units with sweeping views of Uptown and downtown Dallas.

The project between the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center will have over 26,000 square feet of amenity space and 15,000 square feet of onsite retail.

Atelier is also planned to be home to Flora Lofts, 52 affordable artist lofts developed by DFW architect Graham Greene.
Quote:
Atelier has a slender tower angled to take advantage of downtown views while minimizing solar reflection on the Nasher Sculpture Garden, Burnett said.

The materials chosen for Atelier are compatible with the contemporary stone and steel materials found in the district, he added.

Frisco's plan commission gives approval for massive shopping mall and mixed-use project



Project Location

Quote:
Frisco's planning commission has given Chinese developers the go ahead to build a huge shopping and mixed-use development on the north side of the city.

The 77-acre Lesso America development on U.S. Highway 380 will include a half million-square-foot shopping mall, a wholesale trade mart and high-rise office, hotel and some 1,200 apartments just west of the Dallas North Tollway.

"The mall itself we are anticipating will be two levels. There might be a cinema on top or offices," said Joseph Pobiner with architect Gensler. "This is going to be a destination. There are only two others being built by Lesso in the U.S."
Quote:
Buildings as tall as 25 floors could be built in the project.
Quote:
"Because the mall sits up on top of the garage, it will be a promontory that is unique to the area," Pobiner said. "You won't walk through a sea of parking to get there."
Quote:
A street through the heart of the project will be lined with retail and restaurants.
Quote:
"This being on the city's northern edge, we thought a different type of architecture would help define Frisco's north side," said city planner Anthony Satarino. "The developers stated they wanted a more modern type of architecture."

About 1,200 apartments or condominiums are planned mostly on the south side of the project in buildings ranging in height from seven to 18 stories. The developers would have to build the first-phase shopping mall before starting any residential.
Quote:
The project still must get final approval from Frisco's city council.
Quote:
Architects for the project said Lesso America is also planning a headquarters office on U.S. 380 as part of the development.

"That building might be 10 stories," Pobiner said. "It might be taller."

Huge Monarch City development in Allen is ready to take flight on U.S. 75



Project Location

Quote:
The 240-plus-acre project at the southwest corner of Rayburn Turnpike and U.S. 75 in Allen is being planned for everything from high-rise office buildings to hotels, retail and apartments.

Called Monarch City, the ambitious development is a project of Dallas-based Howard Hughes Corp, which has owned the land for almost a decade.

"We are creating a community and an amenity-rich environment organized around a great park," said Howard Hughes' senior vice president Mark Bulmash. "People will be excited about this.

"It's not going to be a typical office park."

The developer has been working on the project with Dallas architect Omniplan for more than a year.
Quote:
Bulmash said that the Monarch City property can accommodate more than 8 million square feet of construction.
Quote:
"We want to have a walkable urban project."




Quote:
"We wanted a big bold vision that companies coming to the Dallas area could embrace," he said.
Quote:
"We show more than 4 million square feet of office on the land," Bulmash said.

"We are planning to have a very dynamic main street where retail and restaurants will be situated.
Quote:
The project name Monarch City comes from the butterflies.

"The area was known for butterflies when the settlers first came here" in the 1800s, Bowman said.

I'd love to see DART rail extended up into Allen as it continues to fill up with these larger developments. McKinney would be even better. A station in the historic downtown in McKinney would be awesome.
