Townhome builders are reshaping Old East Dallas with new housing
Steve Brown
September 23, 2016



Quote:
Builder Larkspur Capital Partners plans to turn the empty lots at Live Oak Avenue and Bennett Street into a complex of 54 townhouses and more than 30 apartments.
Quote:
"This will probably be the biggest townhouse project in East Dallas," said Carl Anderson, who founded Larkspur with his brother Chris in 2013.
Quote:
The townhouses start at more than $350,000 with the smallest units near 1,450 square feet.

"Each one of them is a little different," Anderson said.
Quote:
Larkspur's new project on Live Oak Street will be built on sites that previously held old apartment buildings.
Quote:
"These will range from 2,000 to 2,400 square feet — pretty good size for a townhouse," Anderson said. "Construction will start in the first quarter, and we hope to deliver the first townhouses in early 2018.

Bright idea: Tower redo on Dallas tollway will include a light show
Steve Brown
October 4, 2016



Quote:
New owners of the 24-story Occidental Tower at LBJ Freeway and the Dallas North Tollway are spending up to $9 million on the first major overhaul of the high-rise since it opened in 1985.
Quote:
Now the 570,000-square-foot building is getting a makeover and a new name - Pinnacle Tower.

Leasing agents with Stream Realty Partners are betting that interior upgrades and an eye-popping outside lightshow will bring the tower attention from businesses looking for office space.
Quote:
The dark stone and glass tower is getting a bright modern lobby and other cosmetic improvements.
Quote:
That's why the renovations will include addition of a large fitness center, a new tenant lounge area and upgraded restaurant facilities on the ground floor.

"We are creating a really big outdoor lounge as well," Terry said.
Quote:
Construction on the remodeling project started this week and the first phase of the work will be finished in March.
Quote:
To bring attention to the exterior of the tower lighting will be added including an LED strip along the 24-story tall knife-edge on the front of the high-rise.

"We are having starburst lighting installed on the side towards the tollway to make it pop out," Terry said.

This is just a few blocks from me. Crazy how many townhomes and apartments are going up. Even on the other end of this block there is a townhome development going up as well as a couple across Live Oak from it along with some extensive renovations. There's even one on Gaston. Look forward to it spreading all up and down Gaston.

DART seeks development partner for Mockingbird Station adjacent real estate
Candace Carlisle
October 6, 2016



Quote:
Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART) is marketing its real estate to a potential development partner with the help of Cushman & Wakefield's Dallas office, the brokerage firm recently announced, for an 11-acre tract of contiguous land along the rail line at Mockingbird Station.
Quote:
DART's executives have begun an initiative to build up the transit-oriented development on rail stations in North Texas, such as Irving's $1.5 billion proposed Hidden Ridge mixed-use development and Richardson's $1.5 billion CityLine development anchored by State Farm Insurance.

The Mockingbird Station tract is especially attractive to real estate developers. Last year, a CBRE Global Investors fund acquired Mockingbird Station at the northeast corner of Mockingbird Lane and North Central Expressway in Dallas.
Quote:
DART is looking for developers to propose an agreement that enhances the quality of life for pedestrians and residents, increase transit ridership and enhance the value of the DART-owned property.
Quote:
"An aggressive marketing effort to seek developers for the designated areas at Mockingbird Station should provide us with creative solutions benefiting the community and the city, a public-private partnership collaboration and long term economic benefits for the agency," he added.
Quote:
"Dallas is a strong real estate market, and we expect a lot of interest in this property because of its location, walkability and outstanding demographics," said Cooper, a senior managing director at Cushman & Wakefield.

"To participate in the development of such a prominent high-barrier-to-entry site is a rare and exciting opportunity," she said.

Expected in Deep Ellum in 2017: a hostel
Jeremy Hallock
November 4, 2016



Quote:
Two entrepreneurs from Austin plan to open Deep Ellum Hostel in summer 2017 next-door to Serious Pizza at Elm and Crowdus streets. The owners already converted a 19th-century firehouse in Austin into a hostel three years ago.

"We really want to reflect the culture of Deep Ellum and highlight the unique history," co-owner Collin Ballard says. "It's always been a melting pot."

The building itself is part of Deep Ellum's history. Built sometime between 1901 and 1911, 2801 Elm is on the National Register of Historical Places. According to a record of tenants, it was home to a saloon back in 1911 and a syrup manufacturer in 1922. By 1938, the building was an auto repair shop called the Long Machine Tool Company.
Quote:
The original old-world charms inside, which include wooden ceilings and exposed brick, will be highlighted. The exterior will be changed as little as possible, Ballard says.
Quote:
Deep Ellum Hostel will also include a restaurant and lounge, the owners say.

Lower Greenville Development includes 450 apartments and 50 townhomes



Quote:
Columbia intends to construct a new rental community on this 8 acre site. The property will have a central tower with 450 smaller units in a 5 story building with a parking garage. Surrounding this will be a ring of 50 townhome style individual units with garages. The entire property will be marketed to upscale renters. The project is expected to be online sometime around late 2017 or early 2018.

The developer at this site has been very friendly to the neighborhood. They reached out to the associations in the Lower Greenville area and met several times to review their plans before they committed to the project. They have also provided a website with a weekly updated summary of the progress on the project and any impacts to the surrounding area.
Quote:
The developer has not settled on a name for the new development and has indicated that they are open to suggestions. The first home on the property was called “Bosque Bonita” which means “Beautiful Woods”.

Deep faith: Deep Ellum update brings more restaurants, bars, hope



Quote:
Following an impromptu tour of a new restaurant-filled project in Deep Ellum, developer Chuck Hixson dropped subtle hints that he's ready to move beyond the neighborhood's spotty history.
Quote:
The project, Westdale's 2800 Deep Ellum, represents a mixture of city funds, developer determination, and neighborhood resilience as the community east of downtown Dallas labors toward its latest rebirth.

"We are surrounded by success," said Hixson, noting the burst of development in downtown and East Dallas. "And there will be success in this location as well. We think it's going to be successful in the future because of the new things that are happening and the [nearby] mass employment base.
Quote:
The development, which is still in its formative stage, carved nine new spaces from five existing buildings, some of them 80 years old. All are in the 2800 block of either Elm or Main streets near the corner of Malcolm X Boulevard. The total project measures 30,000 square feet.

Seven spaces already have been leased to barkeeps and restaurateurs including Cindy and Jim Hughes, owners of the popular Bread Winners chain.
Opening soon:
  • Hide Bar (2816 Elm Street)
  • Harlowe MXM (2823 Main Street)
  • Baker and Company (2820 Elm Street)
  • Idlerye (2826 Elm Street)

Quote:
Hixson estimates the total cost of the project at more than $8 million, not counting funds each restaurant operator will spend to get their locations ready for showtime.

Bike lanes, trail extension planned in Stevens Park area



Quote:
A big developer recently announced plans to redevelop a 12-acre site on Fort Worth Avenue at Plymouth, and the city wants to spiffy up the streets, sidewalks and bike lanes in that area.

Recommended enhancements include extending the bike lanes on Fort Worth Avenue, which now end at Edgefield, across Hampton all the way to Bahama Drive. The bike lanes would be physically separated from traffic, although the means of separation haven’t been determined, according to City Councilman Scott Griggs.

Bike lanes also would be installed on Bahama Drive, from Fort Worth Avenue to Plymouth. That stretch of Bahama also would get wide sidewalks.

The Coombs Creek Trail, which extends through Kessler Park to Plymouth and Hampton, would be extended to Bahama, and that would include bridge work.

Finally, there are plans to improve the intersections, including crosswalks, ramp and curb reconstruction, pedestrian crossing signals and short bike lane extensions into neighborhoods.

Henderson Avenue project would remake popular East Dallas strip



Quote:
Dallas' Open Realty Advisors, which owns the Henderson real estate in partnership with Los Angeles-based CIM Group, is asking the city for zoning to construct a combination of retail, office space and a community garden and park at Glencoe Street and Henderson.

The 4.5-acre project would bring the most significant new construction to the street in decades. And most important, it would add much-needed parking with an underground garage.
Quote:
"We want to create a real sense of place here.
Quote:
The buildings that would line Henderson Avenue would be a maximum of three levels with two levels of underground parking.
Quote:
He said that although the land is zoned to allow commercial and apartment construction, homeowners in the adjoining neighborhood didn't want more rental housing.

"The other thing was they said, 'Please limit the amount of bars in the community,'" Masinter said. "So we've said no more new bars.

"We will have 12,000 square feet of restaurants but no bars," he said.
Quote:
Where the project joins the next-door neighborhood, the developers plan to construct two parks and small residential-type buildings on Glencoe Street.
Quote:
The planned buildings will be pushed back 40 to 60 feet from the adjoining neighborhood and screened with trees.

The developers are working with the city on traffic solutions for Henderson, Masinter said, including new paving and center turn lanes.
Quote:
Developers hope to get planning approval for the project early next year and start construction sometime during the year.
