As part of the proposal, a 35,579-square-foot site at 1111 Main at Dallas - formerly the Sakowitz department store - would be sold and redeveloped. The site now holds a parking garage.


"This property is ripe to be developed into a mixed-use property as it connects the convention corridor to Main Street, which historically has been, and continues to be, the heart of downtown," Bob Eury, president of the Downtown Redevelopment Authority," said Monday in a statement. "Our priority is to see signature retail along with public parking as part of the project, but we also think that residential and/or hotel would be a great fit."

The group has issued a "request for qualifications" to development teams interested in pursuing the project. It will be seeking developers that can demonstrate experience and financial strength, the ability to secure national retail tenants and a quality building design.

The authority is working with the building owner to administer the process of selecting a firm, or firms, to negotiate a purchase agreement with. The proposal also involves the chosen developer leasing two or three floors in an adjacent office building at 1010 Lamar for additional retail space. Younan Properties owns both buildings.

Requirements include providing 587 parking spaces at market rates and developing 90,000 square feet of retail.

A presubmittal meeting will be held April 15 at the authority's offices in 2 Houston Center. The deadline for submittals is May 26, and officials hope to execute a sale by Feb. 15, 2016.

The six responses to the request have been reviewed and a committee has identified a shortlist of groups that have been asked to provide additional information before a final decision is made.

The deadline for the final submissions is Aug. 10, and a deal could be finalized early next year.

Downtown officials have narrowed down the list of developers they are looking at to redo downtown’s former Sakowitz building and an adjacent property to three, the latest step in a plan to add more retail options to the city center.

The Downtown Redevelopment Authority hopes to facilitate an agreement between the owner of 1111 Main and 1010 Lamar and a developer that would result in a mixed-use project with some 90,000 square feet of retail space along with residential units or a hotel.

A half dozen groups, which the authority declined to name, submitted initial proposals early this summer. Each of the three groups on the shortlist has been asked to provide additional information, which is expected to come in by Sept. 15, Ryan Leach, executive director of the Downtown Redevelopment Authority, said at a monthly board meeting Tuesday.

“If all goes well … we are hoping we can get that paper work wrapped up before the end of the year and have the project started as soon as possible thereafter,” he said.

First look, it appears the project will be an expansion of GreenStreet.
