Work underway on Stoneleigh residential tower

Work underway on Stoneleigh residential tower

For the first time in almost four years construction crews are back at work at the Stoneleigh Tower Residences in Dallas' Uptown district.

Work on the 22-story condo building slammed to a halt in 2008 when the recession hit and the developers couldn't get financing to continue.

The current owner - developer Mehrdad Moayedi - bought the partly constructed high-rise out of bankruptcy in 2010. He recently got a $25.3 million loan from Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Co. to finish the project.

On Friday morning construction workers were on the site and a construction elevator was in place on the front of the 75-unit luxury residential building.

Just came back from Dallas on Sunday, while I didn't say to long just enough time for a quick bite and run around downtown to take a few pictures from my Droid phone. In May I'll be back up there for a few days to take more.

New fire house opens itself to the community and celebrates the legacy of firefighting

Fire Station 27 for the City of Dallas represents the most advanced design of all the city’s new stations. Due to location and extreme site limitations, the 23,000-sq-ft facility for 15 fire fighters per shift will be the first multi-storey fire station in Dallas in over 100 years. The project’s site constraints and urban context provided opportunities to challenge the typical functional typology of fire stations.

A unique 'stacked' apparatus bay configuration allows the typical 4-bay program to be consolidated to a 2-bay program with drive-thru flexibility at ground level. Below grade is a secure parking garage for 18 personnel vehicles while the second level contains isolated sleeping quarters. An innovative, glazed fitness room solution hangs over the apparatus bays and takes advantage of under-utilised space while consolidating the machines of fitness with the machines of protection.

Based along a linear service and equipment bar, the entire layout was carefully orchestrated to keep the response time under 60 seconds. Fire Station 27 fosters a new level of engagement with the community through a heightened level of transparency and a large-scale graphic wall that merges the realms of firefighting, architecture and media. The storey-wall forms a lining to the atrium, compliments the program arrangement and tells the history and legacy of the human and technology components in the service of community.

Fire Station 27 will be the City of Dallas’ first Carbon Neutral building complying with the 2030 challenge and first LEED Platinum fire station.

Developer Forest City moving ahead with big apartment tower and retail deal in Dallas' Cityplace community



Quote:
By STEVE BROWN Real Estate Editor [email protected] Published: 02 August 2012 06:24 AM

After almost a year of planning and negotiations, a new high-rise residential and retail development is moving ahead in Dallas' Cityplace neighborhood.

Ohio-based developer Forest City Enterprises on Wednesday completed its purchase of about three acres at McKinney Avenue and Blackburn Street. The vacant block will be used to build a 20-story tower with almost 400 apartments and 37,000 square feet of retail space.

The entire development is projected to cost just under $100 million.

The Taylor U/C




Published: 26 April 2012 07:51 PM

Quote:
RelatedConstruction has begun on a 17-story Uptown residential building — the biggest project to get under way in the neighborhood since the recession.

The Taylor apartment tower, at Carlisle and Bowen streets, will contain 308 apartments and is set to open in 2014. The project will replace two low-rise office buildings, which were recently demolished. The Taylor will be less than a block from the popular Katy Trail. It is a project of Dallas-based apartment developer StreetLights Residential.

The rental tower is planned with a resort-style swimming pool, large fitness center and rooftop deck, and the community “will feel similar to a high-end boutique hotel,” said Paige Close, StreetLights’ senior vice president. Rents will start at $1,300 a month for the smallest unit. The high-rise was designed by WDG Architects and Marly + Co

Uptown project thinks out of the box with eye-catching design and neighborhood retail space

By STEVE BROWN Real Estate Editor [email protected] Published: 11 October 2012 08:45 PM

To lure top-of-the-market business tenants to its planned Uptown office tower, the folks at Crescent Real Estate Holdings needed something better than just another out-of-the-box building.

What architect Pelli Clarke Pelli came up with is a block of one-of-a-kind structures that will be a dramatic addition to the Dallas urban district.

“We didn’t want it to look like just another suburban building that you’d plopped down in Uptown,” said Crescent CEO John Goff. “Rectangles are boring, and we have a building that is much more interesting.”

There’s not much chance Crescent’s proposed project would be mistaken for anything sprouting along the Dallas North Tollway.

The 20-story office tower design juts from the corner of McKinney Avenue and Olive Street like a soaring glass sail or the prow of a ship.

The high-rise portion of the project will slant nine degrees over the lower levels of shops, restaurants and a parking garage that will stretch down Olive across from the Ritz-Carlton.

The two-level retail and restaurant complex — planned to be the one of the largest in the neighborhood — will have a sinuous wall of glass facing a new street-side park.

“It will have a big impact,” Goff said. “We want it to be alive and bring energy to the street.”

Goff describes the development as “sexy, elegant and yet very functional.”

The more than $200 million project will be the most elaborate such development built in Uptown since the Crescent project went up in the 1980s.

You couldn’t find two buildings that are more different.

While Crescent architect Philip Johnson dipped into the past for inspiration, Cesar Pelli and his team were looking to the future. “Buildings have changed, and the technology has improved dramatically,” said Crescent senior vice president Joseph Pitchford. “This will be a more contemporary expression than you see in Uptown.”

Most of the building will be clad in glass and metal. But plans also call for a multilevel parking structure covered in masonry panels that will be heavily landscaped.

The top floor of the garage will be used for a park and will have access to a fitness center.

Uptown residents will be most interested in the lower-level retail pavilion, which is to have at least three restaurants, shops and a gourmet food market.

McKinney Avenue and Olive Street 3.1-acre tract 20 stories, 470,000 square feet of office space 60,000 square feet of retail in two stories Construction starts 2013, completion 2015 Architect Pelli Clarke Pelli of New Haven, Conn.

Update on the new Klyde Warren Park



For those who don't know, this park is built over a freeway to bridge the gap between downtown & uptown. This gives new meaning on a whole new look for Dallas as it becomes a major player amongst other cities. This park will have a 5 star restaurant, croquet, chess, petanque, & ping pong and much more.

West End preservation panel approves Fairfield Residential plans for former MKT depot site



Quote:
ROBERT WILONSKY Editor [email protected] Published: 11 October 2012 09:41 AM

For six years there’s been a gaping hole at Ross Avenue and Houston Street, which had been the site of the historic Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad depot till TCI West End Inc. illegally razed the structure only to find itself on the losing end of a court battle with the city of Dallas. But two months back there were signs of life: An applicant had come before the Landmark Commission’s Central Business District/West End Task Force with plans to build a five-story apartment building and six-story parking garage on the vacant lot.

At the time we’d asked for an early look-see at the development; and at the time the developer, Fairfield Residential, said they’d rather wait till all the details were sorted out. Because building in the West End Historic District is no easy feat, given the fact that anything new constructed there has to look like something old, which is to say it has to look like it belongs in a “turn-of-the-century red brick warehouse district of one- to six-story structures oriented to nearby railroad yards, including governmental, office and light industrial structures representing low-scale, urban, mercantile history of late 19th century Dallas.”

And that ain’t easy, especially when you’re planning on building something as mammoth as Fairfield’s proposed development. Finally, though, Fairfield returned to the task force yesterday with the renderings you see below, which received the blessings of the task force. Which means: Next stop, Landmark Commission; then, the city council. But no need to wait to see how the thing’s supposed to look.
