Downtown Dallas tycoon creates two new restaurants in Design District


(The Joule, Facebook)

Quote:
Because colonizing downtown Dallas with hotels, shops, and restaurants is not enough, developer Tim Headington has two new restaurants in the works, this time in the Design District.

Headington Companies will open two new eateries inside a 10,000-square-foot complex designed by Seattle-based Olson Kundig:

- Wheelhouse, a modern gastropub
- Sassetta, an Italian restaurant

The company describes Wheelhouse as being inspired by the modern American gastropub, with an urban atmosphere. The plans are for it to be open for lunch and dinner, with a menu that pays homage to bar culture, with distinctive takes on contemporary pub fare.

Design will be a mix of stylized industrial elements that include guillotine-style floor-to-ceiling windows which are mechanically operated.

Sassetta is both a picturesque village in Tuscany as well as the name of a 15th-century painter. In Dallas, it will be a multidimensional Italian restaurant that draws on a range of Cal-Italian flavors. The menu will reinterpret Italian dishes, including a pizza program, which they already feel certain will be "amongst the best in town."

The dining room will be relaxed yet elegant, with a mix of contemporary design with nostalgic, whimsical finishes. The goal: to function like an all-day cafe for those looking to linger.

StreetLights and the property owner have filed plans with the Dallas Plan Commission showing a complex of 3-story to six-story buildings that house rental units and a grocery-anchored retail center.

The 253-unit project is just off Live Oak Avenue at Swiss Avenue and Peak Street.

Encore has been working on the project for several months. The developer had to wait for the bank that occupied the site to build a new facility next door.

The development will include a landscaped pool courtyard with fountains, spa, fitness facility and 24-hour package concierge.

300 apartments planned for Ross at Annex

Quote:
Austin-based Cypress Real Estate Advisors Inc. asked for a zoning change that would bring the entire 1.7-acre property into the same zone.

The property includes the Credit Union of Texas at 4600 Ross and a couple of old apartment buildings.
Quote:
Zoning along that part of Ross is permissive for the type of dense residential development we’re seeing: It generally allows multiple stories and narrow setbacks of 0-15 feet.

62 townhomes planned for Fort Worth Avenue


(rendering from previous development)

Quote:
City Councilman Scott Griggs broke down the rezoning proposal point-by-point, which you can find below. The proposal is asking to allow “single-family structures to be detached,” which would allow separate homes with a shared driveway.
Quote:
The company doesn’t yet have solid plans for the property, Brickman says. But the firm has several other townhome projects in Dallas, and they “put design first,” he says.

^ I'm not sure why Steve Brown published that article.

He's already covered the project, which has been under construction for months.

Exclusive: Trump Hotels' newest concept to plant stake near Dallas City Hall



Quote:
President Donald Trump's hotel management company, New York City-based Trump Hotels, plans to put a stake in the ground in downtown Dallas with a new hotel — which could be the first concept of its kind realized in the United States.

The Dallas Business Journal has learned the hotelier plans to place its new 4-star concept, called Scion, within walking distance to Dallas' city hall.
Quote:
Trump Hotels' new Scion Dallas hotel — a six-story, 220-room hotel with ground-floor retail space — will sit within a new $50 million mixed-use development near city hall, said Turkish developer Mike Sarimsakci.
Quote:
Unlike the ultra-luxury brand of the Trump Hotels namesake, the Scion brand won't bear the Trump name and will be relatively affordable with hotel rooms ranging from $200 to $300 a night versus a nightly rate of $700 and up.
Quote:
Alterra International, which is based in Dallas and Istanbul, plans to develop the new Scion Dallas hotel as part of a mixed-use development fronting St. Paul Street between Wood and Young streets in downtown Dallas.

The two parcels of land, which total nearly one-acre, are under contract by the development firm. An affiliate of Dallas-based Hamilton Properties Corp. — Hamilton St Paul Grp LLC — has a contract to sell the land to Sarimsakci in a deal expected to close by this summer.
Quote:
Dallas-based 5G Studio Collaborative has begun working on architectural renderings for the Scion Dallas hotel.
Quote:
"The Dallas hotel will be the inspiration for the Detroit hotel because Dallas will probably be the first Scion hotel in the United States."

The Scion Dallas hotel will feature much of the city throughout the building with modern, clean lines and lots of warmth, said Nile Tuzun, creative director of design and branding for Alterra International.

"People staying there will know they are in Dallas, each room will have its own environment and references to Dallas," said Tuzun, who added the new brand will attract "young professional" travelers.

The ground-floor retail space, which will total about 20,000 square feet, will help bring in a Turkish furniture retailer, a steakhouse, a seafood restaurant, a Mediterranean restaurant and a Turkish coffee shop with pastries.
Quote:
One thing the project won't rely on: City money.
Quote:
"We want Dallas to be London, we want Dallas to be Singapore and having these venues that we are creating will bring and keep the young people in Dallas," he said.

Unfortunately, according to that same article, "We wanted to put an affordable housing project on the site to permanently support that housing need, but we didn't score high enough for tax credits and we had some neighborhood opposition," said Hamilton, who is the founder and CEO of Hamilton Properties Corp." Dallas is in desperate need of affordable housing in order to keep a vibrant downtown. Urban planners and city mayors across the US have voiced extreme concern that the creative and working class are being priced out of these neighborhoods, which ultimately spells doom for the cultural vibrancy of the community.

Furthermore, the article spells out that FDI is the primary source of funds, specifically from Turkey and Afghanistan. While I welcome investment and immigration from Muslim nations, I do wonder about the rate at which the real estate in Dallas is being bought up by foreign investors. Are we going to be experiencing the same issues that Cancun's Zona Hotelera is? Where the money made gets sucked out of the region? I wish more people would think about these things before getting giddy about development for the sake of development.
