Arrow DALLAS | Gables West Village | ~20 FLOORS

Developer eyes new high-rise residences for Dallas' popular West Village
Steve Brown
September 6, 2016

Quote:
One of the first apartment projects built in what is now Uptown is being considered for redevelopment.

The Gables Turtle Creek rental community at Cole and Lemmon avenues was built in 1994 and is across the street from the popular West Village retail complex.
Quote:
Developer Gables Residential wants to start tearing down its 22-year-old apartments to replace part of the complex with taller construction.
Quote:
"Currently the site is entitled for 378 units," she said.
Quote:
Gables is asking for city approval to build a tower of about 20 stories on part of the 7-acre site. The block fronting Blackburn Street would remain low-rise construction.

"It's zoned for residential, and we'd be happy to keep it that way or go mixed-use if that's what the community wants," Slade said. "Phase one of our redevelopment would be along Lemmon, where there is heavier traffic."

Gables has already begun meetings with residents in the area and is talking with potential architects.

Gables Cityplace updated:
  • One 20-story building
  • One 16-story building
  • One 12-story building
  • One 4-story building
  • 93,000 square feet of green space, including a public plaza and rooftop parks
  • Reconstructed Travis Street with landscaping

But Gables now proposes one 20-story buildings, a 16-story building, and a 12-story building toward Lemmon Avenue, and a four-story beside Blackburn.




Quote:
Limiting development along Blackburn was of particular concern. Gables Residential also agreed to avoid any vehicular entry to or from Blackburn. There will be three underground parking garages spread across the complex

Other significant concessions include more green space. Initially, the size of a public plaza positioned to face West Village was 21,000 square feet. It has increased to 27,000 square feet. Other open green spaces throughout the development increased from 75,000 square feet to 93,000 square feet.

Gables hired The Office of James Burnett (OJB Landscape Architecture) to design the plaza and other green spaces. OJB is a renowned national firm known for its work on Klyde Warren Park in Dallas, The Park at Lakeshore East in Chicago, and the Arboleda in Monterrey, Mexico, among others.

(This sketch of a section of Travis Street at Blackburn illustrates the concept of an exclusive, landscaped drive.)

I really wish they would tweak the design to incorporate retail and restaurant space along Cole, Blackburn, & Lemmon while maintaining the healthy trees.

I believe Gables mentioned there will be retail along Cole Ave.

I'll be curious how they go about this project. Most of the units on Cole Ave look full, is this all rental property or are there some condos that are owned? They are great spots so I doubt if they are owned that residents would willingly (read: cheaply) vacate these units.
