Look: Here’s the development coming to Zang at Davis
Rachel Stone
July 26, 2016



Quote:
A developer’s plans for the northeast corner of Zang and Davis includes 305 apartments as well as townhomes, restaurants, shops and a 15,000-square-foot public plaza.
Quote:
The property is zoned for buildings as high as eight stories, but Crescent is planning to build six stories on Zang at Davis, scaling back to five, four and three-and-a-half stories moving north along Zang, where there will be two-story walkup apartments made to look like townhomes with stoops.


Quote:
The company also wants to build three-story townhomes on Zang at Neely, but the zoning requires a retail component, so the developer is requesting a zoning change to allow the for-sale townhomes, which would have their own private garages but also front porches.

Part of the property, just east of Beckley, could be developed in the future, possibly as a grocery store.

“As a company, we are a bit obsessed with community and thoughtful place making that necessarily starts with understanding a project’s context, its history, its people … its story,” says Michael Blackwell of Crescent Communities.


Quote:
Crescent provided these renderings to the Advocate, emphasizing their plans to use brick and high-end materials that complement the neighborhood. The apartments will consist of the “flatiron building” and the “Davis building,” both inspired by early 1900s architecture, with a plaza at the center. The plaza is “inspired by great European precedent and select cafe-lined pedestrian streets in some U.S. cities,” Blackwell says.

The development also includes about 13,000 square feet for restaurants and 10,000 square feet for shops.
Quote:
The project is seeking the zoning change for the townhomes. But it’s not taking away existing housing, and unlike two adjacent projects, from Alamo Manhattan and the Nazerian family company, it is not seeking taxpayer funding.

Your first look at Dallas Love Field's new $208 million parking garage landing in late 2018
Robert Wilonsky
August 1, 2016



Quote:
The new parking garage at Dallas Love Field will cost more than originally expected and open later than originally announced. But when the $208 million facility starts parking cars in October 2018, it will be "better than your average good-luck-finding-a-space garage," Dallas' director of aviation told the Dallas City Council this morning.

The new garage is currently under construction next to the main terminal and will hold some 5,000 cars on nine floors — two below ground, seven above — when it opens in the fall of 2018, said Mark Duebner, who oversees operations at Love. Each spot will be outfitted with a sensor, there will be ticket pay stations scattered throughout, and there will be license-plate readers, he said, "that can tell you where you parked if you forgot."
Quote:
And, Duebner said, it wasn't just as simple as adding a new parking lot at Love, which is "wall-to-wall people" at peak since the Wright Amendment's restrictions were lifted in October 2014. Other modifications had to be made as well, including the addition of a $2.6 million "weather-protected vestibule to help with passenger circulation."
Quote:
Originally officials guesstimated they'd see 7 million passengers a year by 2032. Now they believe they'll fly 8.2 million passengers annually come 2032 — at the very latest.


Quote:
The new garage is also allowing — and, in some cases, forcing — the city's aviation department to fine-tune the redone Love. For instance, Duebner said, it will cost $600,000 just to move the Spirit of Flight sculpture as part of the garage build-out.

The Dallas Police Department will also get an expanded facility in the new garage, which will cost around $4.6 million, and Love is having to add what's essentially a service-animal restroom on the other side of security per federal regulations.
Quote:
The project is being funded entirely by bonds issued by the aviation department. Those bonds are not taxpayers' responsibility but are repaid through revenue generated by the airport.
Quote:
The city has also been talking about trying to put a hotel at Love.

Crescent Communities Releases Details on Bishop Arts Development, Brownstones May Not Stick
Amanda Popken
August 2, 2016



Quote:
Crescent Communities released more details about its project planned at Zang and Davis near the Bishop Arts District. The residential components offer a variety of types and sizes to appeal to a range of budgets and lifestyles.

Most controversially, the second phase North Site plan includes a set of 30-38 brownstones with single units — each three to three-and-a-half stories high, made of high quality materials, and with walk-out roof terraces. The Towns on Zang product would likely be a great addition to the neighborhood if the front entrance stoops weren’t so devoid of character, but the question is whether Crescent would develop the property themselves, or sell to another developer. Their portfolio doesn’t include multi-level brownstones currently, and according to neighborhood watchdog Councilman Scott Griggs, their plan is to change the overlay to allow residential, then sell.

The current zoning overlay requires one-story retail frontage all along Zang Blvd. Removing the requirement for retail frontage would allow even dingy apartments to be built. Griggs insists upon including stipulations for street-access units if/when changing the zoning overlay.


Quote:
Walk-up units are also included in the first phase West Site plan, requiring the same zoning overlay amendment to allow residential along Zang. The Steps of Zang apartments could meet the original intent of the overlay by providing ‘eyes on the street’ as residents walk to and from home, and creating activity from a diversity of uses. All of which increase safety.
Quote:
Around 15,000 to 25,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space would extend from the Terrace (at the northeast corner of Zang and Davis), along Davis, through the large interior piazza, and along Beckley. Between 280 to 300 apartments would be included in this phase atop the retail:
  • Steps on Zang – Walk-up, two-story townhomes along Zang with individualized home entries & patio gardens.
  • Flatiron – Larger floor plans with panoramic corner views from the Bishop Arts District around to the Piazza.
  • Neely Porches – Large “front porches” facing Lake Cliff with treetop views to downtown.
  • Davis Street Lofts – Open floor plans overlooking Davis St and the Terrace, Piazza, & Porch.
  • Piazza Juliettes – European-style flats on the Piazza with Juliette balconies.


Quote:
Interior amenities include “Stevie Ray’s Pool”, shaped similar to a guitar, and a publicly accessible residential lobby similar to the ACE Hotel, in Portland — with the “come and stay” ethos of a coffee shop.


Quote:
“This project offers a public space that will become a permanent part of the neighborhood fabric. Access to it is open and unrestricted. Our hope and intention is that it will become the next landmark space in Bishop Arts – an offering to the community as a public living room.”

Drexel Highlander Rolling Out $4 Million Plus Upgrade & Name Rebranding
Candy Evans
August 3, 2016



Quote:
New doors, windows, copper roof, a security system better than Fort Knox (or at least Cowboy Stadium) and miles of mortar joints going under a microscope!
Quote:
It’s even getting a new name: the Park Highlander.
Quote:
“We are re-branding aggressively,” says Vestal. “And this building is getting the largest overhaul of any recent condo in Dallas.”

The security and surveillance system is being upgraded to a superior Canadian product known as the Avigilon System — so good even police stations use it for protection, says Vestal. Software and cameras will control access to the building utilizing high resolution, extended recording capacity, color cameras. They are actually the same ones used for security at Cowboy Stadium.
Quote:
The Drexel, like many condos, has had water intrusion issues, which is why they are restoring, updating and protecting the entire exterior of the building. All 264 sets of doors and windows (some of which flexed in high winds and were permeated by rain) are being replaced with sturdier, higher energy efficient sets. Every inch of mortar joint is going to be inspected on the brick and cast stone, repaired and then water-sealed. Balconies will be re-painted and inspected. Residents also have a one time opportunity to add vents for gas fireplaces and kitchen vents if they desire to vent the high end gas cooktops in their units.

And get ready to see a beautiful new gleam while driving down Oak Lawn: the board is replacing the original mansard roof with seamed sheets of gleaming copper!

$90 million proposal puts a parking garage in Klyde Warren Park. Wait. What?
Robert Wilonsky
August 16, 2016



Quote:
On Thursday, Jody Grant, the chair of the Woodall Rodgers Deck Park Foundation, will go to City Hall to debut the latest iteration of the Klyde Warren, which includes a new deck topped by a parking garage covered with a bar and restaurant, elevated walkways stretching east toward the Arts District and west toward the Perot Museum of Nature and Science, a cantilevered deck hanging over the freeway and the long-promised fountain along Pearl Street, among other significant additions and alterations.

You read that right. A parking garage would be built on a new deck between St. Paul and Akard streets, with room for 70 to 90 spaces. That garage — known as Sky Park — would house the park's offices. There would also be a restaurant and bar with an open-air deck, and it would go directly in front of oilman Ray Hunt's headquarters.
Quote:
Sky Park will have a sibling: Sky Deck, hanging off Akard over the freeway. Grant calls it an event space.
Quote:
Grant said Sky Park would be the centerpiece of the whole project — the one thing that could actually generate revenue for operations and maintenance and pay down debt service. In fact, Grant said, "Without the garage we would abandon the whole project."

Because that do-over won't be cheap. Grant, who put his own millions into the original deck park and helped make something out of literally nothing, said the additions will cost around $90 million, just $20 million less than the deck park's original price tag. He said the foundation will raise $50 million of that, while the city's being asked to cover the remaining $40 million in bond dollars.
Quote:
"If this works, I am committed to working on it and making it happen," Grant said. "If it doesn't I will pass it to someone else."
Either way, the park will still be there.

Urban Genesis Begins Bishop High Line Apartments this November
Amanda Popken
August 18, 2016



Quote:
As soon as the rain lets up, demolition will begin on the four homes where 70 apartments will be under construction in November. Urban Genesis spoke with the Bishop Arts Neighborhood Association Tuesday night about the Bishop High Line project and the other 50 apartments they have planned just a block away. The projects are planned along Melba Street between Madison St. and Adams St.
Quote:
Urban Genesis is a merchant builder, planning to keep their investment for between 5 and 20 years, so they’re invested in spending more on characteristics that will pay out over the long term, such as conditioned interior halls and elevators. Also, the secured parking behind will have eight-foot, board-on-board fence along the back, with open gates on the side. “It’s not going to be ugly,” says Matt Shafiezadeh, one of the developers with Urban Genesis.
Quote:
And, unfortunately, the Urban Genesis developers were able to take advantage of a loophole in zoning that allows trees on residential lots to be cut down without any stipulations on replacement. Whereas, the Nazerians down the street saved every tree they could around every house they demolished, planning much of their development around the big old trees, and will be required to plant new trees to replace those that will be cut.

Oak Cliff is prized for its big, old trees. That’s the appeal of the area — and its namesake. It’s why the city recently spent $70,000 to move two mature oaks in the path of the Bishop Arts streetcar stop.
Quote:
The Urban Genesis team encouraged neighbors to put together a design committee to recommend design changes before they go to the TIF Board for approval. If not granted TIF funds, the developers would not be able to make planned improvements to the alleyway and streetscape. If they do accept TIF funds they will also be subject to design recommendations from the Urban Design Peer Review Board as well as required to include 20 percent affordable housing.

The Cedars will soon get another residential project.



Quote:
Digit, his next residential project, starts next month. The 102-unit apartment project will fill a pie-shaped vacant lot on the north side of Corinth Street at Akard.

Steve Brown
August 29, 2016



Quote:
New York-based WeWork is renting two floors in the new 1920 McKinney office tower, which is a block north of Klyde Warren Park.

Dallas Arboretum to break ground on edible garden that will open in 2017
Holly Haber
September 6, 2016



Quote:
The Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Gardens will break ground Monday on an $8 million edible garden that will boast sweeping views of White Rock Lake and the city skyline.

A Tasteful Place will be created on 2 acres of undeveloped land next to the dining terrace on the entry plaza. Opening in fall 2017, it will have an orchard, vineyard, flowers, vegetables, fruits, herbs and a 3,600-square-foot pavilion with a dining room and teaching kitchen overlooking the garden and lake.

Designed by SWA Architects and Buchanan Architecture, A Tasteful Place represents the penultimate garden in the master plan for the 66-acre facility.
Quote:
"The Dallas Arboretum has already reached the heights of being one of the world's leading botanical gardens and now is taking a pioneering step to incorporate a very useful and traditional European gardening tradition as one of its primary attractions," Smith said. "As a Dallas landmark and international destination, it will help reflect the movement to understand more about our food and where it comes from. A Tasteful Place will provide the opportunity for visitors to talk about resources and learn urban gardening firsthand with both modern methods and sustainable practices."

Year-round programming will include classes, tastings, horticultural demonstrations, cooking classes, workshops and festivals featuring garden produce.
Quote:
It will have a number of designated features, including the Wreath Pools, Lagoon Outlook Covered Patio, the Picnic Lawn Overlook, the Strolling Trail, the Orchard, the Orchard Patio, the Tasting Plaza, the Veranda at the Garden Pavilion, Central Stairway and Promenade, the Garden Gate event entrance and the Shaded Patio.

Northwest Highway project one of the largest new retail centers planned in Dallas
Steve Brown
September 9, 2016



Quote:
Demolition crews have cleared a high-profile property in Northeast Dallas to make way for a major retail project.

The 275,000-square-foot High Point Crossing shopping center is to be built on the site of the old Steakley Chevrolet dealership on Northwest Highway at Abrams Road.
Quote:
Preliminary designs being marketed by commercial real estate firm CBRE/UCR show a two-level, urban-style retail center with garages and room for a dozen retailers.

The stores will be in a central complex and in two freestanding buildings along Northwest Highway.

That makes High Point Crossing one of the largest new shopping centers in the works in Dallas.

CBRE senior vice president Jeff Kittleson said construction could start next year.

"Preleasing with retailers takes some time," Kittleson said. "But this is the vision we are working on."
Quote:
About 8.5 percent of the area's retail space is empty — the lowest vacancy in more than 30 years.

Building permits filed for next Cypress Waters office project
Steve Brown
September 12, 2016



Quote:
Developer Billingsley Co. is moving ahead with plans for the next phase of the 1,000-acre Cypress Waters community on LBJ Freeway.

Billingsley has filed building permits for a five-story, 250,000-square-foot office building that will be part of a mixed-use development called The Sound.

Located on the south shore of North Lake, The Sound will include offices, shops, restaurants and apartments.

Architect Gensler designed the planned office building at 3100 Olympus Blvd. with glass, natural wood and stone exteriors.
Quote:
The first Sound office building, apartments and retail are scheduled to be open by early 2018.

Billingsley is working on a second office building in the same area that is being pitched to Dallas-based restaurant firm Brinker International for a potential headquarters.
Quote:
Cypress Waters is currently home to companies including 7-Eleven, CoreLogic, Nationstar Mortgage, OneSource Virtual and Toyota Industries.

In all more than 6 million square feet of offices are planned for Cypress Waters that will eventually house more than 20,000 workers.

Exclusive: Dallas group ready $85M project on city's Pacific Plaza Park
Candace Carlisle
September 9, 2016



Quote:
A Dallas development group says it's ready to move forward with the project to transform Pacific Plaza in downtown into a lush park above a seven-story, below-grade parking garage.

Dallas-based 4P Partners LLC plans to ask the city of Dallas to approve a lease on Pacific Plaza, currently a 3.46-acre surface parking lot , to make way for a proposed $85 million development. It will bring a programmed park (much like Klyde Warren Park) with an adjacent restaurant and retail space, as well as a food truck courtyard at no cost to the city.
Quote:
The closure of Live Oak Street between Harwood Street and St. Paul Street also will be discussed at the meeting.
Quote:
"Dallas is under extreme budget pressure with a lot of people looking for city money," Lusk told the Dallas Business Journal in an exclusive interview. "We aren't asking for TIF money or for the city to pay for the maintenance of the park. It's a very solid gift to the city."

The estimated annual cost of maintaining the future park is $600,000, which Lusk says will be paid for through revenue generated at the park. It includes would-be leases for a restaurant and grocery space developed on what is now Aston Park, which sits adjacent to Pacific Plaza.

The closure of Live Oak Street would help connect the two pieces of city park land and bring a pedestrian-friendly thoroughfare into the park, which was designed to resemble Bryant Park in New York with a large activities lawn designed by Kevin Sloan Studio in Oak Cliff.
Quote:
Construction could begin as soon as the end of this year if the lease is approved this month, and could take an estimated 30 months to complete the proposed development.
