Called Park District, the development will include a 19-story office tower and a 32-story residential building with 255 units.

There will be 22,000 square feet of retail space on the lower floors of the skyscraper complex.

HKS Architects designed the development. It has sleek glass towers with low glass restaurant and retail buildings in front, facing the park.

Holocaust Museum plans:

The Dallas Holocaust Museum is hoping to build a new permanent home in the West End that will allow it to expand its exhibits — and its mission.

The museum’s future plans are “unparalleled in the world of Holocaust museums,” says its president and CEO Mary Pat Higgins.
Quote:
A new home has already been picked out and purchased — a parcel of land bound by Ross Avenue, Houston Street, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit light-rail tracks and Record Street, across from its current 6,000-square-foot home. That land was bought last year, says Higgins. The museum has owned the future parking lot, behind the Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza, since 2005, when it moved into its current West End location.

The museum hints at plans for a new museum in a brief, vaguely worded note posted to its website, which says only that officials are researching “expansion alternatives, development plans and budgets and to execute preliminary actions toward constructing a new building to house the Dallas Holocaust Museum/Center for Education and Tolerance.” Officials hadn’t planned on saying anything further about the expansion until behind-the-scenes fundraising efforts were further along.

But at the end of last week a rendering of the new home appeared on Facebook. After being asked about the plans by The News, Higgins decided it was time to go public.

Very interesting to see that Dallas is to expand its Holocaust Museum with a Human Rights museum. A large human rights museum has recently opened in Winnipeg, Canada, though exhibits and interpretation have yet to be fully installed. One consideration though is that first nations will want their issues included in the museum, as will Palestinians and others who feel that their rights have suffered in recent times.

New office tower will replace Uptown’s landmark Old Warsaw restaurant



Quote:
A new Uptown office tower is going up on the site of one of Dallas’ oldest restaurants.

The 14-story building will replace the decades-old Old Warsaw restaurant and two other buildings on Maple Avenue next to the Crescent.

Construction of the sleek, metal and glass tower will start in early 2016, according to M. Terry Enterprises and Holt Lunsford Holdings, the two firms building the high-rise.

“We decided this is where we wanted to be,” said Mike Terry, who heads the family-owned investment firm. “We looked at locations in Preston Center and all over Uptown and Oak Lawn.

“All of a sudden we found out this property was available and we decided this is where we want to be,” Terry said. “We felt like this was a special, unique location.”

[...]

Terry and developer Holt Lunsford bought the building from Old Warsaw owner Al Heidari. As part of the purchase agreement, the restaurant may stay in the building until the end of this year.

The developers also purchased two small adjoining properties and have just over an acre for the new high-rise.

Architect Gensler designed the 125,000-square-foot building which steps back on the upper levels and will have landscaping and retail on the street level. Parking for the project will be in an underground garage.

The developers held an architectural competition before picking the Gensler design.

“We didn’t want to steal any of the Crescent’s thunder or be a copy cat,” Terry said. “”We think we have landed on something that will complement the Crescent and the area.”

The office tower is being planned to cater to small, exclusive businesses and will have outdoor terraces on the upper levels. The building will be priced to rent at costs comparable to other top-tier Uptown buildings and the Old Parkland campus in Oak Lawn, Lunsford said.

...

The new tower will take 18 to 24 months to build.

[...]

But the renovation of two downtown Dallas towers at once will be NewcrestImage’s most ambitious project and one of the largest such building redos in downtown Dallas.

“We were looking for opportunities in downtown Dallas and saw some that didn’t make sense,” said NewcrestImage CEO Mehul Patel. “These two buildings came to our attention and we thought this could be a good conversion.

With so many changes coming so quickly, and with so little land to build on, the idea of more and more coming to Victory Park can be hard to imagine.

Trademark Property made a video with renderings of what Victory Park will look like. The video provides those familiar with the area near the American Airlines Center with a better understanding of exactly what the changes will look like from a street level view.

Developers will build a 29-story residential tower on one of the last vacant sites in the downtown Dallas Arts District.

The project at Flora and Olive streets is right next door to the Museum Tower and a block south of Klyde Warren Park.

The development will have 370 luxury apartments, 39 artists lofts and about 12,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space on the one-acre site between the Nasher Sculpture Center and the Meyerson Symphony Center.

“It’s a dense, urban project,” said Dallas architect Graham Greene, one of the partners in the project. “We took our inspiration from what has been done in New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco in their downtowns.
Quote:
“We anticipate we will start construction in the fourth quarter of this year,” Kubin said. “It will be a 24- to 28-month build out.”

Greene had originally planned on constructing his artists lofts project in a six-story building on Flora. A tower was planned as a future phase.

“Instead of doing it in two phases, we are doing it all at once,” Greene said. “Doing it all in one phase makes for a better-looking building.”

Designed by Boston-based architect Add Inc., the thin tower will sit on top of the six-story loft and retail building.

I'd like to see a combination of the Bofill, AMO/OMA/ and Shop/Stoss entries as a final solution. Bofill had a more intricate solution for multi modal transit and pedestrian culture, OMA had a really interesting integration of landscape and real estate + they hired hydrological engineers to generate a very realistic and worthy solution for the design of the TR water features and SS of course had a more synthesized overall strategy.
