The only one I can think of is Reunion Tower. Downtown we had a festival marketplace, an ice rink, pedestrian tunnels - all the trends.

The Legacy Midtown Park project is being built just east of North Central near Meadow Road.

A project of Legacy Senior Communities, the rental project will include 184 independent living apartments 50 assisted living apartments, 36 memory care residences and 54 short-term rehabilitation or long-term care suites.

"The Legacy Midtown Park will be a state-of-the-art retirement community with independent living and all other levels of care on one campus," Marc R. Stanley, chairman of the board of trustees for The Legacy Senior Communities, said in a statement. "North Texas families have been asking us for years to create a rental continuing care retirement community in Dallas, and we are thrilled to respond with this amazing community."

SunTrust Bank and Frost Bank provided financing.

The project is scheduled to begin opening in the Fall of 2019.

This was asked on SSP and never got a response:

There is dirt moved next to Galatyn Park DART station. Anyone know what's going there? Would be a good TOD spot.

I was driving around the city today. It's amazing seeing the density. However, I can't help but to feel incredibly repulsed by the architecture of these new developments. The architecture is absolutely horrendous and it has the appeal of cheap construction that looks like cardboard. Why can't these developers actually build something aesthetically good? It's really discouraging and makes the city look trashy.

I have to agree on some of these new apartment buildings, they look so cheap!! It's a pitty they will all get leased up no matter what.

The thing about ugly buildings is they can always be demolished. But a vacant lot is just going to be empty and not contribute to anything good. What's most important now is achieving critical mass of people and business activity in the city core.

35 years from now certainly some of the cheaper new apartments and office buildings going up around Uptown and Oak Lawn are going to bite the dust just like a lot of crappy 1980's buildings have been. It's just the circle of life.

The Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation proposes a state-of-the-art VisitDallas Experience Center



Quote:
DALLAS (Oct. 19, 2018) – The Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation (WRPF) and VisitDallas today announced an innovative partnership that will complete the original vision of Klyde Warren Park.

The estimated $76 million project adds 1.2 acres over Woodall Rodgers Freeway, just west of St. Paul Street. This land will be used for a 20,000-square-foot pavilion that will house the state-of-the-art VisitDallas Experience Center, a Visitor Center unlike any other in the U.S., fusing “best in class” customer service with interactive technology that tells the Dallas story. The expansion will include additional green spaces and public gathering spots, assist with the Park’s long-term financial sustainability, and allow the privately-operated park to expand the more than 1,300 free programs and events it already provides annually.

Design & Construction of the project is scheduled to begin in 2019, with completion anticipated as early as 2022.

I would like to see the elevated walking path/park that connects the park to the Ross Perot Museum.

I don't think that's included in the expansion any longer.

Hines Breaks Ground on The Victor, New Icon of Luxury Urban Living in South Victory Park



Quote:
Nov. 7th. 2018

(DALLAS, TX) – Hines, the international real estate firm, has broken ground on The Victor, a luxury for-rent residential high-rise community located on the northeast corner of Olive Street and Victory Park Lane. Adjacent to the American Airlines Center and W Dallas-Victory Hotel, the residences will lie at the nexus of burgeoning South Victory (SoVi) District’s three curated blocks of walkable, street-front dining, shopping and entertainment experiences.

Comprised of 344 luxury residences, the 39-story high-rise tower will stand taller than any other residential community in Victory Park or Uptown and will boast 360-degree views of Turtle Creek and the American Airlines Center to the north; Downtown to the south; Downtown and Uptown to the east; and the Trinity River and Margaret Hunt Hill bridge to the west.

Rendering of Harwood new Hotel U/C



Quote:
By Steve Brown
Oct. 30th. 2018

Developer Harwood International started work several months ago on a 20-story hotel tower being built on the vacant half block at the corner of McKinnon and Moody streets, just west of the Crescent and Tower Residences Ritz-Carlton condo building.

The hotel site is directly across the street from the original Rolex Building — Harwood International's first project in the neighborhood, which opened in 1984. Since then, the developer has built about 3.5 million square feet in the area.
