Bishop Arts project with 246 apartments planned in Oak Cliff



Project Location

Quote:
Dallas-based Exxir Capital has been working on its multi-block development for several years at Bishop Avenue and Melba Street. The project is planned to include apartments, retail and restaurant space and commercial development on several blocks.

Exxir recently received building permits valued at more than $40 million for the first phase which includes 246 apartments.
Quote:
"We are getting closer," said Exxir's Michael Nazerian. "We are looking at construction on a 50,000-square-foot first retail piece and the apartment piece."

The new buildings would be constructed between Davis Street and Jefferson Boulevard, just south of the historic Bishop Arts retail district. Exxir's project is one of three major developments in the pipeline in that area.

Grateful the developers worked to preserve the main building.

Plans for former Dallas ISD Ross campus show new apartment community



Project Location

Quote:
Developers who are knocking down parts of the former Dallas Independent School District campus on Ross Avenue are saving the central building.
Quote:
"We're planning to incorporate the interior core of the original building into our leasing office and amenity area," Leon Capital Group managing director David Cocanougher said in a statement. "The balance of the architecture of the new construction will be set back from the existing structure to increase the prominence of the preserved component.

"It also incorporates design that blends the style of the existing structure with the ongoing transformation occurring along Ross Avenue."
Quote:
In December, Leon Capital filed plans with the city showing the preservation of the central building at the DISD complex, which dates to the 1950s and was added onto and remodeled for decades.
Quote:
The 2-story mid-century modern building is the most recognizable among the hodge-podge of structures built on the site.

Leon Capital began knocking down parts of the campus this weekend. The developer plans to start construction this summer on a 4-acre luxury rental community it's calling "The Academic."
Quote:
The developer said it worked with the Dallas Landmark Commission to "identify the most historically relevant aspects of the existing building and to incorporate them into the design.

"As a result, Leon Capital will preserve the main entrance facade and structure of the original building and make it a fully functional aspect of the development," the builder said in a statement.

New apartments will replace bit of old England in Northwest Dallas



Project Location

Quote:
A new rental community on Northwest Highway is going on up the site of a storied Dallas apartment community. The recently demolished Sherwood Forest apartments were built in the 1960s in faux historic architecture with an old England theme.

Apartment builder Trinsic Residential Group knocked down the old rental units with their turrets and half-timbered gables and is putting up a modern apartment project, to be called Aura Bluffview.

The new project will have 473 apartments and townhomes designed by Dallas architect GFF.
Quote:
"We sold off about 3 acres to Green Brick to build for-sale single family homes," said Trinsic Residential's Adam Brown.

Green Brick Partner's Centre Living Homes is one of Dallas' busiest townhome builders with projects throughout the city. Brown said Trinsic's first apartment units on Northwest Highway will be ready late this year.
Previous multifamily community:

New high-rise office and hotel project on the way in Plano's Legacy development



Project Location

Quote:
The planned development at the northeast corner of Headquarters Drive and the Dallas North Tollway will include two office towers and a luxury hotel.

Construction on the high-rise project, called Headquarters II, is scheduled to start later this year, according to developer Randy Heady.

Twin 14-story office towers will contain 425,000 square feet of space located just across the tollway from Liberty Mutual Insurance's huge office tower complex.
Quote:
"It will take 14 to 15 months to build," Heady said. "We already have 10 to 12 prospects for the first building."

The office towers will be connected with a parking garage that includes an "amenity deck" on the roof with lounge, food service and meeting space. The first phase of the more than 5-acre project will be built on the north side of Headquarters Drive with the hotel next door on the corner of the tollway.

Heady said he's in talks with several hotel firms to build and operate the project.

"They all want to be close to Toyota," whose new North American headquarters is farther west on Headquarters Drive, Heady said.
Quote:
"We focused our attention on the tollroad view of the building," said O'Brien vice president Mick Granlund. "We used different patterning with the glass to create interest in the building,"[sic]

Not a fan of this plan at all, look at the scale of parking zone 2 to the buildings around it with nothing to offer but more congestion. This would be way more appropriate on the surface lot next to the convention center with buildings of similar mass. There needs to be some kind of buffer between parking zone 2 and the neighborhood such as retail or a small park. Parking zone 1 seems poorly thought out, it blocks large portions of the station from view which is the only attractive part of this development. I hope this isn't the final product.

Big plans for a nearly untouched part of downtown:

New gateway to Deep Ellum? Downtown Dallas' sleepy east side getting major upgrades



Quote:
Shawn Todd thinks this forgotten corner of downtown can be Dallas' next reborn neighborhood. He's heading a partnership that's buying about two dozen buildings and land to create a retail and office project that will cater to business entrepreneurs and creative and tech companies.
Quote:
"We view these buildings as true gems," he said. "We want to preserve these buildings and compliment it with new development."

Todd — whose credits include renovation of downtown's historic Post Office and redevelopment of the I.M. Pei-designed One Dallas Center — plans to remodel and repurpose buildings that once housed auto dealerships, parts warehouses and the like.
Quote:
Included in his pending acquisition is the pie-shaped Magnolia Oil building at Jackson and Chavez that during the 1960s and 1970s housed radio station KLIF.

Across the street, he's buying the old Cadillac showroom that still has the automaker's emblem etched into the floor.
Quote:
In all, Todd Interests is buying some 200,000 square feet of buildings — about 40,000 square feet of which is occupied.

"We are buying 22 buildings from four different owners," Todd said.
Quote:
Both preservationists and downtown economic development groups are encouraged by Todd's plans.

"This is one of the most remarkable collections of historic buildings in downtown," said Katherine Seale, chair of Dallas' Landmark Commission.

"We are fortunate to have a developer amass this type of collection," Seale said.

"This is going to be a game changer for the eastern end of downtown."
Quote:
"You have a developer that understands the vision and the value and character of this neighborhood."
Quote:
Todd Interests is putting together a team to tackle the project. He's partnered with Dallas top chef and restaurateur Nick Badovinus to redevelop the Magnolia Oil/KLIF building with a signature restaurant.
Quote:
Award-winning Dallas architect Omniplan is working on designs for the district along with landscape architects SWA Group.
Quote:
The buildings will be remodeled for office and retail space — no residential.
Quote:
The developers hope to kick off the project immediately and bring the buildings online before the end of this year.
Quote:
"We think this is a five-year project," Todd said.

Construction begins on Davis/Vernon restaurants and shops





Project Location

Quote:
Blackwood Developments started construction late last year on a retail strip on West Davis at North Vernon Avenue.
Quote:
The new building will comprise about 11,000 square feet with space for shops and restaurants, plus about 54 parking spaces behind it.
Quote:
The project is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
Quote:
Blackwood also has plans to build eight four-story townhomes on Fouraker, which is the street behind this development, between Vernon and Tyler.

Those also are expected to be finished at the end of this year, with prices starting near $400,000.

New 309-apartment project planned for Katy Trail condo site in Uptown



Project Location

Quote:
Builder Lincoln Property wants to construct a 309-unit rental community along Carlisle Street in Uptown. The apartments would replace an aging condo complex on the site between Hall and Bowen streets.

But first Lincoln Property will have to get zoning changes for five- and six-story project.
Quote:
In return for the taller buildings, Hunt said the developers are offering to build new public connections to the Katy Trail, bury power lines and set the buildings back from the popular pedestrian trail.
Quote:
Lincoln's Katy Trail project still faces opposition, especially from neighbors worried about increases in traffic. The Friends of the Katy Trail group recently withdrew its support for the project, Hunt said. The organization previously had written a letter in support of the development, she said.

Hunt said the buildings would be a minimum of 35 feet away from the trail — farther back than other apartments recently built along the Katy Trail.

Foundations are being poured. Priced from $479,900 to the mid $500’s

Caxton Court
Residences




Project Location

Quote:
Located of [sic] North Prairie Avenue just southwest of Deere Street, Caxton Court is a truly architecturally distinct community. The Caxton Court Residences are three single-family detached homes offering distinguishing buyers a modern urban home in a natural light filled single-family detached design. These Josh Nimmo designed homes thoughtfully use glass, steel and perforated metal panels to maximize light and privacy in an urban environment. Each residence offers 2,200 air-conditioned square feet, 3 bedrooms, 3 and ½ bathrooms, a separate study, an entry studio that opens up into a gated yard, 2 private balconies and a full-sized two-car garage.

Caxton Court is a one-of-a-kind custom design by one of the premiere modern architects in Dallas. Material selections were made in concert with interior designer Roz Murphy and AIA award winning architect Josh Nimmo.

The unique and eye-catching design is not at the expense of livability. The open floor plan, bedrooms and bathrooms were designed with the first impression and comfort years later in mind. Standard features such as touch-sensitive faucets in the kitchen, Bosch appliances, hardwood floors, quartz countertops, solid-core doors, tankless waterheaters, Nest thermostats, high-end lighting fixtures, generous closets, and relaxation inspiring six-piece master baths.

Really?? Now that is surprising. Who would have thought that Novare's next Dallas-area apartment building would be going up in Frisco? Definitely not I.

I think they would do well in the Las Colinas Urban Center as well.
