From Candy's Dirt:



Quote:
This stretch of Fitzhugh between Central and Ross is where Carl and Chris Anderson of Larkspur Capital Partners are seeking city approval to re-zone for a first of it’s kind condo flats project they believe will fit the bill perfectly for young buyers.

The project is at 5209 Capitol Avenue, directly behind the Capitol Pub on Henderson. The name: Capitol Flats.
Quote:
To that end, Carl and his brother, Chris, who founded Larkspur Capital in 2013, are hoping to deliver a $400,000 to $500,000 product, the first of it’s kind in this neck of East Dallas: low to mid-rise contemporary condos constructed of expensive materials (marble, quartzite, white oak floors), lots of glass store front windows, and recessed balconies.
Quote:
“It is designed to be a transitional property from the brick and cantilevered retail — as you go south on Capitol, the materials become softer with synthetic cladding and wood-looking exteriors, says Carl. “We designed something we think is a perfectly beautiful fit for the location.”

Most importantly, the Anderson brothers, whom I have christened The Property Brothers, want this corridor to be completely pedestrian friendly and walkable. Their vision is to have Capitol Flats meld in with the huge new JLB Partners retail coming to the area.
Quote:
“We need to get the zoning that allows one more story,” says Carl. “We are building 38 units with an average floor plan of 1500 square feet, what the market dictates. Under current zoning, which was written in 1988 before Central expanded, we could still build 38 units but they would be only 800 square foot condos. We’re putting the same number of humans in each unit, just double the size for the market.”

To get their square footage, Larkspur is asking to go higher and closer to the sidewalk: four stories instead of three, and to take side setbacks from 10 to 5 feet on the sidewalks. In exchange, they are creating underground parking and pedestrian amenities on the front such as seating and a public art court: Capitol Flats will square off 300 square feet as a public sculpture garden with rotating art as a crow pleaser.

Throw one back: Vintage Dr Pepper ad planned for side of landmark Dallas building
Steve Brown
May 31, 2016



Quote:
Developers who are restoring a more than century-old downtown Dallas building want to give the project a historic super graphic.

Owners of the Purse Building at 601 Elm St. want to cover part of the brick wall on the east side of the 6-story building with a reproduction historic advertisement.

Developer Tanya Ragan is seeking city approval for installation of the colorful Dr Pepper soft drink mural.
Quote:
Ragan said the installation has been in the works for more than six months.

“Last we year did an art project on that side of the building,” she said. “We put the art up there and people started taking pictures and were calling us to say it looked great.
Quote:
The Purse Building will be converted into a mixed-use development.

“Our plans are to do office and first-floor retail and to start by the end of this year,” she said.

The Purse Building owners plan to develop a one-story restaurant and parking lot on the vacant half-block on the building’s east side.

Mark Cuban buys Design District site for Dallas Mavericks practice center
Steve Brown
June 2, 2016

Quote:
Cuban on Thursday bought about 13 acres at Stemmons Freeway and Inspiration Drive, directly across the freeway from Victory Park.

Cuban said he plans to quickly relocate to the just purchased property in a temporary building space.

“We have a lot of long-term plans,” he said in an email.
Quote:
The Mavericks will repurpose one of the buildings into temporary practice facilities and eventually redevelop the site into a mixed-use complex.
Quote:
The Mavericks development could eventually include a wide variety of features, including a team store, public café, a museum and theater and outdoor plazas with water features, according to early design schemes for the project.

Cuban had said he wanted to keep the development in the downtown area.
Quote:
“The Design District could wind up looking more like Uptown in another decade,” said developer Jim Lake, a long-time owner in the area. “It’s a smart move for Cuban.

New apartment tower east of downtown Dallas will include Tom Thumb grocery store
Steve Brown
June 15, 2016



Quote:
A new grocery store and apartment tower planned on downtown Dallas’ near east side will bring Uptown-style development to the neighborhood.

North Carolina-based Greystar Real Estate Partners will build the 10-story high-rise at Live Oak and Texas streets, a block from DART’s commuter rail line.

A full-service Tom Thumb supermarket will be on the ground floor of the new building, which is part of Greystar’s City Lights development.
Quote:
“We think that the grocery store could serve as an anchor tenant to bring other retail to the area,” Sparks said. “It will serve the east side of downtown, Deep Ellum and the Baylor hospital district.”
Quote:
The Tom Thumb – which will have its entrance at the corner of Live Oak and Texas – will be served by an underground parking garage.

There will be 365 apartments above the grocer, with a separate garage.

Two large terraces for the apartment residents will overlook Live Oak and have views of downtown.
Quote:
Sparks said Greystar plans to break ground on the project later this year and will deliver the building in 2018.

Exclusive: Canadian logistics firm to open high-tech office in Dallas' West End
Candace Carlisle
June 17, 2016



Quote:
Canadian-based C.A.T. Global Inc. has decided to open up a high-tech Dallas office in the city's West End in hopes of drawing young professionals with logistics and software support to its latest U.S. office.

This is the third U.S. office for the company, which also has offices in Memphis, Tennessee and Columbus, Ohio.

"Dallas was a strategic market for us as we improve our presence in the U.S. business," Jayson Martineau, a vice president and general manager for C.A.T. Global in Toronto, told the Dallas Business Journal in an exclusive interview.

"This office will house our technical portion and will create software to optimize our customer's supply chain and increase the efficiency of our trucks," Martineau told me.
Quote:
"We operate very similar to a tech company and we want to attract Millennials looking for a balance between work and life," he added.

The company has leased 2,500 square feet of space within the building. Bob Ingram of Dallas-based Mohr Partners represented C.A.T. Global in its real estate search.
Quote:
At the time of the deal, the building was more than 90 percent leased.

Exclusive: Goff, Crescent Real Estate buy luxury Uptown hotel; $30M in upgrades planned
Candace Carlisle
July 5, 2016



Quote:
Billionaire John Goff and Fort Worth-based Crescent Real Estate LLC has closed on one of Dallas' ultra-luxurious hotels in Uptown, with plans to spend $30 million in upgrades.
Quote:
The real estate magnate and Crescent acquired the Rosewood Crescent hotel through a recently established invitation-only real estate fund, called GP Invitation Fund I, with an investment capacity of $4 billion.

"Hotel Crescent Court is a timeless and iconic asset in the best location in Dallas," said Goff in a written statement. "I believe this is a very unique opportunity — one of which I have a personal passion."

This is a return home for Goff, a longtime Uptown developer that was previously an owner of the hotel in the early 1990s. As part of the ownership group's return, the new ownership group plans to return the hotel to its historic name, Hotel Crescent Court.

Hotel Crescent Court anchors The Crescent, an 11-acre mixed-use development in Uptown that is in the midst of its own $33 million transformation.
Quote:
The development includes the 220-room hotel (29 of which are suites), Nobu restaurant and a 22,000-square-foot space. Hotel Crescent Court also include The Crescent Club.

The $30 million in upgrades is planned to include renovations to guest rooms, meeting and banquet spaces, the spa and to improve the hotel's customer service. Dallas-based waldrop+nichols studio is the project's interior designer.

Upon completion, Goff said the Hotel Crescent Court will offer the amenities of a newly built hotel with the classic design associated with the Texas landmark.

Mixed feelings on this:

Smart streetlights, public Wi-Fi coming soon to Dallas' West End
Melissa Repko
June 29, 2016



Quote:
One of Dallas’ oldest neighborhoods -- the West End -- will be home to some of the city's newest technology, including free public Wi-Fi, streetlights that measure air pollution and detect noise and an app that makes it easy to find an open parking spot.
Quote:
In the West End, the projects will include:
  • Intelligent streetlights powered by LED lights that can measure air quality and sensors that can detect crowds or noise.
  • Interactive digital kiosks with features such as cellphone charging stations, touchscreen maps and public transit schedules.
  • Network connectivity, such as fiber and cellular coverage.
  • Public Wi-Fi.
  • Smart parking infrastructure that allows people to easily locate available parking and reserve a parking spot ahead of time.
  • A mobility app that allows people to search for transportation options, including public transit, ride-sharing, bike sharing, walking and smart parking.
  • Solar-powered waste management with sensors that detect when trash cans need to be emptied.
  • Open source software platform that aggregates data and provides opportunities for citizens, entrepreneurs and organizations to build smart city applications on top of the platform.

Jennifer Sanders, executive director of the Dallas Innovation Alliance, said she hopes to have some of the projects underway by the end of the year. She said intelligent streetlights, kiosks, public Wi-Fi and waste management have been slated to begin first.

After testing out the technology in the West End, Sanders said she'd like to see similar projects across the city.
