Uptown office tower breaks ground in December



Quote:
Developer Harwood International said Friday that it will break ground on its Frost Tower office building on Dec. 12.

The glass and metal office highrise will be constructed at Wolf and McKinnon streets near the entrance to the Dallas North Tollway.

Frost Bank is the anchor tenant in the 22-story building.

Demolition crews recently knocked down buildings on the site to make way for the new construction.

Construction For Harwood’s Uptown Dallas Frost Tower Gets A Chilly Start



Quote:
They called it a groundbreaking.

But the hole dug for the new Uptown office tower is already big enough to hide a house.

Developer Harwood International held a chilly ceremony Thursday afternoon to kick off its 22-story Frost Tower on Wolf Street. With temps at the outside event in the 40s, the name of the building is fitting.

Even with the nippy weather, Harwood got a big turnout for the party, which after some speeches moved to the nearby Marie Gabrielle Restaurant.

The new office high-rise is already more than 40 percent leased.

“I’m in talks right now with a group that would take another full floor,” Harwood’s director of leasing Jihane Boury said. “April 2015 is when we are planning to have it complete.” The Frost Tower will open in April 2015. (Harwood)

The building will have eight levels of parking with 13 floors of office space on top of that. Frost Bank will have a groundfloor banking lobby and is the lead office tenant in the project.

[QUOTE=jonathaninATX;110405644]Artists’ affordable-housing project gets $2 million in TIF money. Dallas gets 50 Arts District parking spaces





Quote:
By Robert Wilonsky
Jan. 6. 2014

It’s been close to a year since we were first introduced to the Flora Street Lofts, a 46-unit residential complex that will be planted the in the shadow of Museum Tower at 2121 Flora Street. But according to a briefing given this morning to the Dallas City Council’s Economic Development Committee, it’s all systems go: Karl Zavitkovsky, head of the city’s Office of Economic Development, told the council Monday morning that construction is scheduled to begin on the $24.5-million project in May and wrap up by December 2015.

But that wasn’t the reason for the briefing.

Last spring the City Center and Downtown Connection TIF boards signed off on a deal that gave the developers — among them nonprofit La Reunion TX and developer Graham Greene, who owns the parking lot where the complex would go — $2 million in TIF incentives. This morning Zavitkovsky told the council what it’s getting in exchange for its investment: 50 parking spaces in the Arts District for the next 15 years, which the city will lease at a price not yet determined.

“The TIF money is basically supporting the structured parking that’s accompanying the lofts,” Zavitkovsy tells The Dallas Morning News. “We’ll lease 50 spaces for public use at below-market rates so there will be additional parking for the whole cultural district. That’s essentially the motivation here. The fact is the Arts District is better served with better-quality parking.”

And affordable housing: Thirty-nine of the 46 units will be made available to “local working artists” at below-market rate — four at 30 percent adjusted median family income, 10 at 50 percent, 25 at 60 percent. Scott Griggs points out that’s much better than the tiny amount of affordable housing (at 80 percent AMFI) being considered at 1401 Elm Street, which is looking to get $50million from the Downtown Connection TIF. It’s ” absolutely fantastic,” said Griggs.

Stoss + SHoP Beat Out Bofill, OMA for Downtown Dallas Re-Design



Quote:
The results are in: Dallas has selected Stoss + SHoP’s “Hyper Density Hyper Landscape” (HDHL) over finalists Ricardo Bofill and OMA+AMO to reunite its downtown with the neighboring Trinity River. The winning team’s pragmatic approach aims to activates the region’s “full potential” by introducing an alternating “grid-green” development that will transform 176 acres into three new “dynamic, mixed-used” neighborhoods.

“The idea is very clear and compelling,” stated the jury. “There’s much left to be resolved in details but the diagram of the green coming into the city and the city going into the Trinity is a very powerful diagram that should become a strategy for managing change as the community moves forward.”

Designed as extensions of established neighborhoods, these three new districts will be activated by the revival of the Old River and introduction of a new programs, such as new cultural institutions, a robust transportation network, and high-tech incubator campus. Large “forested fingers” will extend the river’s natural systems into city to provide shade and urban greenscapes, while lonely flood basins are reactivated into a “beautiful chain of parks and water gardens” that re-connect residents to the Trinity.

There are, for now, three proposals to develop the long-proposed three-acre Pacific Plaza park on what’s currently a 300-or-so spot downtown Dallas parking lot bound by North St. Paul, Live Oak and North Harwood streets. Developer Shawn Todd has a $100-million plan that includes a sprawling eight-level parking structure stretching over Pacific Avenue. Mukemmel “Mike” Sarimsakci’s $600-million proposal calls for planting two massive towers on the proposed park. And former Dallas City Council member Ron Natinsky wants to bury a mechanical parking garage beneath the park, at a price tag not yet made public.

Luxury condos going into Uptown:



A look at Harwood International's new Bleu Ciel development

Quote:
When I was out and about scouting the site of Harwood International's latest project -- a 33-story luxury high-rise condo tower in the Harwood District adjacent to Uptown -- I found a large billboard with blue sky and not much else to allude to the grandiose plans orchestrated by Paris-based architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte.

Wilmotte, through his firm Wilmotte & Associes S.A., has teamed up with Harwood's internal design team to create the signature building that promises residents a piece of sky in Dallas.

Now, the team marketing the property has sent out a long-awaited rendering of the tower, which will bring an estimated 158 luxury residences to the northwest corner of Wolf and MicKinnon streets. The tower is named Bleu Ciel.

Construction on Bleu Ciel is scheduled to begin this fall.

Construction is kicking off on the most expensive Uptown development in more than a decade.

Crescent Real Estate Holdings’ $225 million office and retail project at McKinney Avenue and Olive Street attracted a crowd for its start Thursday morning.

The 530,000-square-foot, 20-story McKinney & Olive development is on one of the last large empty blocks located just north of downtown Dallas.

While the office tower is the most prominent part of the project, it’s the lower floor retail and restaurant center and almost one-acre outdoor public space that will set the project apart from other buildings in the area.

Acclaimed international architect Cesar Pelli and his team spent time getting to know the neighborhood and visiting buildings along McKinney Avenue before coming up with the design.

“We think this is a very pedestrian area and we want to celebrate that,” Pelli said. “When you drive by, this is going to catch your eye.”

The lower two levels along McKinney and Olive will be clad in transparent glass to open the project up. The parking garage at the corner of Olive and Cedar Springs Road will also *be wrapped with shop and restaurant space on the ground floor.

Pelli said the design of the building will contribute to the feel and appeal of the area.

“Uptown represents the future of all Dallas, he said.

This is a hilarious quote to me.

True. While I wouldn't call this building perfectly pedestrian, at least the plaza side will continue the pedestrian part of McKinney for another block. The block between this and Klyde Warren Park needs some serious soft scaping though. Don't know how to get the developers on Dallas on board with this stuff. Every development is too busy trying to emulate a fort at ground level.

The quote was ironic, but perhaps meant to convey that the pedestrian activity might induce people who drive by to partake.

Trammell Crow eyes Uptown restaurant site for new tower



Quote:
Original item:

A familiar Uptown property is being eyed for a high-rise development.

Trammell Crow Co. is seeking zoning to build a “vertical mixed-use development” on the Café Express site at McKinney Avenue and Bowen Street.

The single-floor Dallas restaurant occupies a more than 1-acre tract that’s zoned for high-rise office and retail construction.

Crow wants to develop a tower on the corner that would “primarily be multifamily residential, with some ground floor retail and restaurant space,” according to filings with the City of Dallas.

[...]

Update:

Trammell Crow Co. says that the project at 3230 McKinney Avenue will have 271 apartments in a 20-story tower.

There will be 13,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

The new McKinney Avenue trolley headquarters, museum and trolley barn will be on the southwest corner of the new building on Bowen Street at Oak Grove.

“Adding another trolley, barn space and a museum with leadership offices has been a goal of ours for years, but the opportunity to do it the right way has never presented itself,” Phil Cobb, founder of the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority, said in a statement. “This space adjacent to where we are currently headquartered is exactly what we needed to realize the vision and grow.”

New skyscraper project will include residential and office towers overlooking Klyde Warren Park



Quote:
Metropolitan Life Insurance and developer Trammell Crow Co. have disclosed details of their planned tower complex overlooking Klyde Warren Park.

MetLife and Crow plan to build an almost 30-story residential tower and a 20-story office building at the northwest corner of Pearl Street and Woodall Rodgers Freeway at the entrance to Uptown, according to plans filed with the City of Dallas.

The mixed-use development will occupy the site of the Chase motor bank across the street from the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas.

Crow bought the bank property in June from JP Morgan Chase Bank.

Architect HKS Inc. is designing the 3-building project, which will have 513,000 square feet of office space, 275 luxury residential units and 20,900 square feet of restaurant space, Crow and MetLife said in the filings with the city.

The developers describe the project as a “high quality, well-designed vertical mixed-use development, including office, multifamily residential, retail/restaurant space, and possibly lodging uses, with a site design and landscape program which will complement the adjacent Klyde Warren Park and provide an excellent pedestrian environment.
