Harwood Has Design District Project in the Works


http://realpoints.dmagazine.com/2013...-in-the-works/

Quote:
Harwood International, the developer behind the 17-block Harwood area of Uptown, is expanding into the Design District. The company is planning to break ground this spring on District 1444: The Design Village, at the southeast corner of Dragon Street and Oak Lawn Avenue. The five-story, mixed-use complex will offer 224 apartments and 46,000 square feet of retail space. Amenities will include a pool deck lounge with cabanas, fitness center, game room, fire pits, and gardens.

Alexis Barbier-Mueller, director of Harwood international, said the project will deliver much-needed residential space and amenities to the area. “We want to bring the same amenities to the Design District that are available in Harwood, Oak Lawn, State Thomas, and West Village,” he said.

District 1444 was designed by Harwood Design Factory LLC, which is led by Laura Lleal, vice president, and Ben Cortez, architect. According to Jihane A. Boury, director of leasing and vice president at Harwood International, three of the five restaurant spaces have already been leased.

Oak Lawn’s historic Old Parkland campus is getting a grand new addition



Quote:
A Dallas real estate project that started with the preservation of a historic hospital will soon get another landmark building.

Crow Family Holdings began its Old Parkland development in 2005 when it restored the century-old Parkland Hospital at Maple and Oak Lawn avenues. Since then, the investment firm has built two more complementary buildings, and a third office is going up for TRT Holdings.

But the next phase of development will be the most impressive yet for the 9.5-acre Oak Lawn campus. Already under construction at the corner of Oak Lawn and the Dallas North Tollway, the three-building complex of classical buildings will be a grand addition to the Crow’s one-of-a-kind development.

At first, Crow Family Holdings was just planning to restore the Old Parkland Hospital, one of the state’s oldest surviving medical buildings. Another developer was going to build workaday apartments on the surrounding land, which was purchased from Dallas County. “But when we decided to put our offices here, we decided there was a better use for it,” CEO Harlan Crow said.

The Crow family investment company moved its operations in 2008 from Uptown into the restored hospital building. Since then, the company has developed a series of office buildings that are compatible with the historic medical building.



The largest building on the campus is under construction on Maple Avenue for Omni Hotels & Resorts’ owner TRT Holdings. The six-story, $56 million building will open late this year at 4001 Maple Ave. “The TRT building is pretty big,” Crow said. “Our plan with this was to keep the buildings low and small. “We are trying to stay with our architectural idea, but not precisely,” he said. “We want the buildings to have a kinship.”

The next phase of development will be a trio of four and six-story brick buildings joined by an arcade. The largest central building will have a high domed roof and is patterned after Thomas Jefferson’s Rotunda at the University of Virginia. Dallas’ Beck Group and Charlottesville, Va.-based architect Dalgliesh Glipin Paxton Architects designed the three buildings.



The 150,000-square-foot complex will be one of the costliest office developments in North Texas atalmost twice the average expense.

KMPG Signs Onto Hall Arts Center



Quote:
The race to build the next office tower in central Dallas is about to be out of the starting gate.

Accounting firm KPMG has finally decided where it will locate its downtown office, real estate brokers who are tracking the deal say. After looking at options in Uptown, property execs familiar with the transaction say that KPMG has decided that developer Craig Hall’s new building in the Arts District is the best option.

KPMG has been scouting for new digs since its namesake tower on Harwood Street went into foreclosure last year. The accounting firm wanted to keep its operations in the downtown area and considered several new buildings in the works. KPMG was also interested in Crescent Real Estate’s office and retail tower planned on McKinney Avenue.

Brokers say that Hall Financial’s planned project on Flora Street got the edge because of its location across from the Meyerson Symphony Center and its shorter construction time. The 16-story, 454,000-square-foot office project is being built on top of an existing underground parking garage.

Hall Financial took out a building permit for the development late last year. The building would open its doors in 2015.

From shitty shopping mall to urban town center oasis!

Beck Ventures Releases Details for its $3 Billion Dallas Midtown Redevelopment



Quote:
Beck Ventures has released specific details on its plans for Dallas Midtown, its massive $3 billion redevelopment of the Valley View Mall area. The complete reinvention will ultimately entail millions of square feet of office, retail, hotel, and residential space. Plans also call for gondolas that will connect various sectors of the project, a trolley system, and a glass-roofed, open-air retail center; Bellagio-style fountains, parks, and a hike-and-bike trail that connects to White Rock Lake.


WFAA

Dallas Midtown is a 430-acre district bounded by Interstate 635 to the south, Preston Road to the east, Alpha Road to the north, and the Dallas North Tollway to the west. Last fall, the City of Dallas provided $250,000 to help fund a redevelopment study by Omniplan, in partnership with the North Dallas Chamber. Beck Ventures owns about 104 acres within the district, including Valley View Mall at Interstate 635 and Preston Road. It’s led by Scott Beck, president, and his father Jeff and brother Jarrod, both managing partners. Jeff Beck was the driving force behind the development of Trophy Club; he acquired 1,200 acres there in 1994.



Beck Ventures acquired Valley View Mall last year. It will get under way with the first phase of its redevelopment project during the first quarter of 2014. It involves relocating JCPenney to a new freestanding building, and Sears to a second freestanding facility.

The mall’s third anchor, AMC Theatres, will stay in its existing location, but the rest of the mall will make way for open-air retail capped by a glass roof (similar to the atrium at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine). The movie complex will get a $10 million enhancement with about one-third of the theaters being traditional, one-third being dine-in, and one-third offering the new 4D experience with rumble seats other special effects.

The center of the complex will offer a live-work-play environment, with taller office, hotel, and residential buildings planned for the outer loop. Designs have a 20-acre park, about four times the size of Klyde Warren Park in downtown Dallas, anchoring the center. The Becks selected architect Michael Twichell to design their master plan. He was lead designer for the Shops at Legacy in Plano and much of Trophy Club.


Aerial gondolas? Included!

As city looks to remake Valley View-Galleria area, check-cashers, pawn shops and big boxes zoned out of existence


A better look at the aerial view of Dallas Midtown as seen in the plan approved by the City Plan Commission.

Quote:
Two weeks ago Dallas’ City Plan Commission voted to accept the Valley View-Galleria Area Plan, which gives quite the extreme makeover to some 430 acres of prime North Dallas property. A dying mall and decaying apartments will be replaced with a sprawling central park, hotels, condos, shops and brand-new streets. Maybe, one day, even an underground DART station. Quite the big game-changer, as you may recall.

This process began in September 2011, and the finish line remains a long way off, years into the future. My 9-year-old will probably be a grandfather before that land looks anything like those renderings seen in the documents posted below this item.

But in just two weeks, the plan commission will vote to rezone the entire area — bound by Preston Road, LBJ Freeway, the Dallas North Tollway and Southern Boulevard — and create the Valley View-Galleria Area Special Purpose District.

Says the proposed ordinance, “The Valley View-Galleria Area Special Purpose District is envisioned as the primary regional town center of North Dallas, characterized by an economically vibrant and environmentally sustainable mix of moderate to high density residential and non-residential land uses, supported by an enhanced system of streets and open spaces.”

That 18-page zoning ordinance was introduced to the plan commission with little fanfare this afternoon over a boxed lunch. There were far fewer questions today than there were during the public hearing at the Galleria a few weeks ago. The discussion took all of an hour, with Peer Chacko, second-in-command in the Sustainable Development and Construction department, spending most of that time walking the commissioners through the PowerPoint attached below.

Long story short, said Chacko: The area will be divided into seven subdistricts, each “walkable.” Pawn shops and check-cashing business will no longer be allowed; neither will drive-thrus and retailers larger than 7,600 square feet. This will impact 14 existing businesses, among them, according to a list provided by Chacko after the meeting, two Ace Cash Express locations, the Target at Montfort Drive and LBJ Freeway, a handful of fast-food chain eateries and Hawley’s Biliards on Alpha Road.

The pool hall and the fast-food restaurants can, however, apply for specific use permits to keep their doors open.

For now, though, the existing apartment complexes standing on the site of the proposed 18-acre park, the so-called Midtown Commons, will not be impacted by the proposed zoning change. Says Chacko, “They also continue to enjoy the right to development [on] their property under the current zoning.”

As for those new streets, the briefing hopes to create what it calls a “comprehensive street network to ensure sound multi-modal transportation plan to manage need of high-density mixed-use vision.” The long-term hope, based on a presentation full of parks and bike lanes and tree-line streets, is to create a “green and pedestrian friendly urban environment as redevelopment occurs.”

Developers will be required to add green space to the area as projects are built. And there’s the chance they’ll also be asked to contribute to an open-space fund.

Dallas’ Tallest Skyscraper Getting A Multimillion-Dollar Redo


http://www.carfreeinbigd.com/2012_04_01_archive.html

Quote:
Downtown Dallas’ tallest building is getting a makeover.

The 72-story Bank of America Plaza is being updated with a new entry, lobby areas and remodeling of the retail court. The remodeling also will include upgrades to the signature green lights that outline the Main Street skyscraper.

Work crews have already put up construction fences surrounding the office tower. General contractor Turner Construction has parked its construction trailer next door. And weeks ago, the towering red sculpture that stood in front of the building at Main and Griffin streets was taken away.

Downtown leasing agents anticipate the overhaul of the 1.9 million-square-foot tower will be the biggest since it opened in 1985. By some estimates, the remodeling will cost about $20 million.

The project will replace the building’s signature green argon exterior lighting with a modern LED system. Officials with Metropolis Investment Holdings of Chicago were traveling Tuesday and could not be reached for more details about the construction.

But downtown Dallas officials say they’re pleased to see the work on Bank of America Plaza moving forward after years of consideration. “This is a necessary and an important ingredient in bringing that building up to a different level,” said John Crawford, CEO of the economic development group Downtown Dallas Inc. “It is a big plus for that end of downtown, and an extension of everything else that’s going on on Main Street. “I think it will add greatly to their ability to attract major tenants to that building,” Crawford said.

The silver glass and metal office tower is about 80 percent leased.

Exclusive: Developers ready to give Dallas’ Victory Park project a reboot



Quote:
Published: 02 May 2013 10:57 PM
Updated: 02 May 2013 10:57 PM

Developers who have spent a year trying to figure out what to do with Dallas’ Victory Park project hope to start construction in the coming months.

Their plan to pump new life into empty retail space on the northwest corner of downtown Dallas will include a combination of big and small things. The most noticeable change will be a new retail and office space to be built across the street from American Airlines Center.

But Estein & Associates, which represents the largest owner in Victory Park, and Fort Worth-based retail developer Trademark Property Co. also have a long list of smaller fixes they hope will make the 7-year-old project more appealing to consumers. “I believe in two or three years you will see a completely different Victory Park,” said Lance Fair, chief operating officer of Estein and vice president of Victory Park. “We have a lot of successes.

“Our office occupancy is very high, and the W Hotel is having its best year ever in 2013,” Fair said. “But it’s the retail that people talk about, and when that starts working, the world will see Victory Park as a success.”

Victory Park’s shopping and restaurant space stumbled soon after the project began opening in 2006. The retail space running south of the arena through Victory Park’s heart never fully leased and became largely empty during the recession, when high-end shops and restaurants shut down.

With more than 1,000 apartments in the pipeline and offices full of workers, the project’s owners think the time is right to revamp the shopping space. “It’s the perfect time to do this,” said Terry Montesi, CEO of Trademark Property, which Estein hired almost a year ago to begin working on plans. “We’ve studied the project and we think it can be fixed, that it will actually work one day.

Transformation

“But a transformation is going to be required.”

Montesi said the Victory Park owners are ready to rip out the retail component and rebuild it. Streets will be changed to make traffic flow less confusing. And the retail buildings’ slick modern architecture will be livened up with new storefronts, signs and landscaping. “Some of what is there now is very cold and monochromatic and doesn’t add energy,” Montesi said. “We want that street to feel like a linear park and look more inviting.”

A temporary retail building will replace a parking lot across from the arena. And the unfinished garage behind it will be wrapped with new shops and topped with two floors of office space. “The garage that was originally going to be for the [never-built] Mandarin Oriental hotel will be finished,” Fair said. “It’s currently an eyesore. “Just finishing that garage is a significant investment on our part.”

High-rise residential project planned for Dallas’ Katy Trail



Quote:
One of the last vacant development sites on Dallas’ popular Katy Trail will be the location of a new high-rise residential building.

Developer JLB Partners is teaming up with Sammons Enterprises to build the 18-story, 299-unit apartment tower at Cedar Springs Road and Carlisle Street. The prominent Uptown property was previously planned for a St. Regis Hotel tower. JLB acquired the 2.3-acre tract after it went through foreclosure during the recession.

“This isn’t the kind of dirt that an apartment builder gets to play on very often,” said JLB chief executive Bay Miltenberger. “This is the best location we have built on in Dallas for sure — maybe nationwide. “The site warrants a very nice building.”

GDA Architects designed the brick and glass rental home community, with a seven-story building taking up most of the vacant corner. “And we will have 86 units in the tower above that,” Miltenberger said.

The tower will have a private penthouse lounge. And the mid-rise portion of the project includes a roof deck pool with views of downtown Dallas.
