Is Dallas going to see a high rise construction boom in the near future?

Is there a story about the Oliver somewhere. I see the block it sits on is opposite St. Anne's? Never even realized that block was empty right now.

Your first look at Forest City's plans for 20-story residential tower on old Hank Haney Golf Center site in West Village



Quote:
Last summer our Steve Brown noted that Forest City, the folks behind the downtown Mercantile and Continental redos, was making a play for the land once known as Hank Haney's driving range on McKinney and Blackburn across from the West Village. (The move particularly traumatized one young comer on the amateur circuit.) At the time Steve wrote his piece no real deal was in place, but Cityplace Co. Neal Sleeper said it was close, after which Cleveland-based Forest City would build 20 stories of residential and retail, which Good Fulton & Farrell would design.

Above, that's what it'll look like -- more or less. Those renderings are courtesy the briefing you'll find below, part of a Cityplace TIF chitchat the Dallas City Council's Economic Development Committee will have tomorrow morning first thing. The reason it's coming to council: Forest City Residential Group, Inc. says it needs $2.851 million in TIF reimbursements to make the 20-story, 391-apartment unit project "financially feasible."

According to the briefing, the whole thing will run just shy of $100 million, of which Forest City has $36 million; the rest will come from a construction loan. The Office of Economic Development's good with the $2.85 million TIF kick-in, says the briefing, since it expects the new project to generate "$797,000 in property taxes annually."

Per the deal construction will begin in December of this year and wrap 24 months later. The whole thing is expected to consist of 399,000 square feet for residential use and give-or-take 37,000 square feet of retail. Some folks over on the Dallas Fort Worth Urban Forum had been hoping for a hotel.

if you mean the forground of that picture, that's a covered lot for the Maple Terrace apt building across the street. Don't know of any developers intereste in that site. The historical preservation people would probably lose their minds.

Doug Chesnut and Tom Bakewell have done some big apartment projects.

The two Dallas developers turned downtown’s 36-story Republic National Bank building into rental homes, and they built the 26-story Park 17 high-rise in Uptown.

Honestly I don't think so, especially after the Galleria got it's facelift a few years back. But hey, mixed residential use buildings and hotels are always great. Especially for such a prime real-estate location as Valley view Mall. In my personal opinion I'd say demolish the whole lot, and start over. But Valley view's been around for ages, and I'm sure people would never let it happen. Anything is better than nothing for Valley view at this stage.

Trammell Crow ramping up West Plano office project



Quote:
In this artist’s rendering, the office project will start with a 13-story tower at Dallas North Tollway and Legacy Drive in West Plano. A possible second phase could add 192,000 square feet of office space in a seven-story building.

Trammell Crow Co. is taking the wraps off a new West Plano high-rise it hopes will lure more jobs to the Dallas North Tollway office market.

The 13-story office tower is planned for a more than 6-acre site at the southeast corner of Legacy Drive and the tollway.

Quote:
When the Nasher Sculpture Center began leaking light in September, director Jeremy Strick didn’t immediately grasp the gravity of the situation. In the lobby near the cash register, just a few small splotches of light splashed across a travertine wall.

The leak should have been impossible. The Nasher was designed by Renzo Piano, arguably the world’s greatest modernist architect, a man famous for reinventing the roof. For the Nasher, he created an ingenious system composed of two parts: a barrel-vaulted roof-cum-ceiling made of 3-inch-thick, 1,200-pound glass panels and, suspended above the glass, a sunscreen of millions of tiny aluminum oculi aimed due north. The sunscreen was designed using the precise longitude and latitude of the Nasher, and it accounts for every hour of the Earth’s 365-day trip around the Sun. Standing in the gallery, a visitor looking up and to the south sees what appears to be a solid structure through the glass ceiling. Turning 180 degrees and looking north, though, he sees open sky. The system allows into the museum soft, full-spectrum light that is not only safe for artwork but creates ideal, transcendent viewing conditions. The roof system is patented, and Ray Nasher, who died in 2007, considered it part of the art collection that he gave to Dallas.

Take a ride on The Connection that will one day link the Katy Trail to the Trinity Strand Trail. At least, that’s still the plan.

Now if only we could pump up our central business district a little, then we'd be closer to the likes of major cities like Seattle and Houston.

$10 Billion Bullet Train on Track in Texas

Quote:
An international investment group plans to put up $10 billion to build a 220-mph bullet train connecting Dallas and Houston, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

The investors, led by Central Japan Railway Co., say they will not seek any state or federal funds to operate the high-speed rail line, which could be running by 2020, the Star-Telegram reported Wednesday.

Instead, the group plans to recover its investment through rider fares, which would be competitive with the cost of air travel between the two cities.
