Developer ready to start 1.1 million sq ft Far North Dallas mixed-use project


Developers are kicking off a Far North Dallas mixed-use project starting with 310 apartment units.


By STEVE BROWN Real, Estate Editor, DMN
Published: 30 January 2012 10:24 AM


Developers working with Texas A&M University to build on 73 acres in Far North Dallas are ready to kick off their project.

Arlington-based Realty Appreciation Ltd. is seeking City of Dallas approval to build the first 310 apartments in its development called Urban Living Laboratory on Coit Road in Collin County.

The mixed-use project is planned for land that is part of A&M's decades old extension services facility on Coit south of Frankford Road.

Texas A&M is a partner in the development which was originally announced in late 2010.

The $28 million first phase of construction of the six-phase Urban Living Laboratory project is planned to include 10 apartment buildings and a clubhouse on a vacant tract just east of Coit, according to designs filed with the City of Dallas.

Developer Stewart Hoffman heads Realty Appreciation.

The entire $128 million dollar, 1.1-million-square-foot Urban Living Laboratory project is envisioned to include apartments, offices, retail and hotel space.

The complex will also be used to research, demonstrate and teach concepts of sustainability, energy efficiency and urban planning.

The project calls for the eventual construction of 600 apartments, 200 student housing units, more than 100,000 square feet of retail space and two hotels.

Developers announce plans for "Trinity Groves" near Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in West Dallas


An artist rendering shows what the finished Trinity Groves project may look like as work starts on a 13-acre development at the foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge in West Dallas.
Restaurateur Phil Romano and two investors are behind the project.

Trinity Groves, the first major West Dallas development tied to the opening of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, is expected to bring at least 15 new restaurant concepts and retailers to an area bereft of major attractions, the project’s backers said Tuesday.

In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, restaurateur Phil Romano and his business partner Stuart Fitts outlined plans for a “restaurant incubator,” where seasoned chefs and newbies can try out an idea. The area along Singleton Boulevard between Amonette and Herbert Street also will be home to a cooking school, art galleries, artisan cheese makers, a butcher shop and other attractions.

The two investors, along with partner Larry “Butch” McGregor, make up West Dallas Investments LP, which has been buying up property in the area since at least 2005. The company has amassed more than 100 properties on 65 acres in West Dallas.

The initial restaurants and shops will be on about 13 acres closest to the foot of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, which is set to open in early March. Future development could include low rise office and multifamily buildings.

“We wanted to activate that area, and we knew that the bridge would promote economic development,” said Jill Jordan, an assistant city manager. “We’re glad to see somebody take the initiative and get something going.”

Romano and Fitts declined to discuss how much money they have invested in the project thus far but said no city money has been spent.

Wish they'd get going on CityLights or stop teasing us about it, as well as The Spire development and whatever the new owners of the Crozier Tech site have in store. I would be if one got going, the others would too.

I would imagine City Lights would give a nice shot in the arm to Deep Ellum, which is just a few blocks to the south, no?

It's funny that none of those renderings match...they were created/presented at varying stages of the project's planning. Notice all the inconsistencies.

Still Awesome though! City Lights and the Spire development need to happen!
If Two Arts Plaza and the the arts district tower on Flora goes up also what a huge difference this area of downtown will be.

These renderings come from one set that was presented this past summer and if you look at them, they are very consistent. The pdf they came in has even more renderings. The previous design didn't look like this at all.

And yes, this is a couple of blocks north of the Deep Ellum DART station. Great location if they can ever work out things with the local HOA and land an anchor tenant.

good to see all of the infill getting back underway. Just need some announcements for the taller stuff at CityPlace and more Harwood stuff now that Victory has a few projects.

And Spire is in the middle of leasing before they build. They said no speculative and that they want to build office first. I dunno, I think they could do apartments now and fill them. If they wait, they will face a lot of competition from CityPlace/West Village area, Main St area downtown and possibly CityLights if they wait too long.

Developers are working on plans for a 5-story apartment building to be constructed just east of the American Airlines Center arena.

By STEVE BROWN
15 February 2012

... a 5-story, 151-unit rental project just east of Victory Park. The development on Harry Hines Boulevard at Payne Street is just a block from the American Airlines Center arena .... The property is on one of the busiest traffic routes into Uptown and downtown and is near the exit from the Dallas North Tollway.

"Victory Apartments" was designed by architect Hensley Lamkin Rachel Inc. ... same architect that's done hundreds of units in the Austin Ranch...The Dallas City Plan Commission is set to review plans ...in early March.

Apartment rents in Uptown rose by more than 5 percent last year and the majority of existing rental units in the area are full.
