KTR buys DeSoto tract for massive 1.6M SF speculative distribution hub
Quote:
A large 96-acre tract has been bought by an affiliate of New York City-based KTR Capital Partners, which plans to develop a massive 1.6 million-square-foot speculative distribution hub.

Terms of the sale were undisclosed.

The new distribution hub could land with one single tenant, or be broken up into two smaller distribution hubs, Antoine Long, the economic development specialist with the DeSoto Economic Development Corporation, told the Dallas Business Journal.

Long said the economic corporation is prepared to offer economic incentives to potential new tenants ranging from property tax abatements and a potential skills development fund grant.

Once complete, the new distribution hub will be configured to handle bulk movement with 200-foot truck bays and an abundance of excess trailer storage.

Investors plan big for newly purchased Dallas Design District properties
Quote:
A group of investors headed by Dallas real estate firm Dunhill Partners that includes oilman Tim Headington and Highland Park Village’s owners has bought a big chunk of Dallas’ Design District.

The partners acquired 33 acres and about 700,000 square feet in buildings along Hi Line Drive, Oak Lawn Avenue and Stemmons Freeway, just northwest of downtown.

The new owners plan to market the buildings that form the heart of the district to high-end designers and other tenants and eventually redevelop some of the property for high-rise construction.

The neighborhood, which got its start as a scruffy business district in the 1950s, is seeing a huge real estate boom, with new restaurants, apartment towers and retail.

“We are going to take what’s there and reinvigorate it and keep it going,” said Dunhill CEO Bill Hutchinson.

“Look at Uptown and all the high-rises over there,” Hutchinson said. “Where’s it going to go next? The Design District is a natural evolution.”

Updates are coming to the Shops at Park Lane

The Shops at Park Lane is adding a gathering space to pull together the multilevel mixed-use development that many believed it’s long needed.

The center, which is bordered by Park Lane, Greenville Avenue and North Central Expressway directly across from North Park Center, has seven new tenants coming this year and next.

Construction on the latest phase of the development, which adds a five-story office building and more retail space, will be finished by March. That and two other buildings housing a Starbucks, Zoës Kitchen and a yet-to-be named restaurant will surround a new park.

The free-standing Starbucks will have a patio and at 2,500 square feet will be the largest in this market. There’s a similar store in Austin at West Third and Lavaca streets that it’s being patterned after, said Sandy Spurgin, vice president of Northwood Retail.

“We’ve talked for a long time about how this development needed a front door, a gathering place and a soul,” Spurgin said in an interview.

I hope they manage to maintain the vibe of the design district. I am not a fan of some of the existing cookie-cutter apartments they've already build.

Toyota plots out new $350M corporate campus in Plano
Quote:
Toyota Motor Corp. (NYSE: TM) filed plans Thursday with Plano's planning department for its new $350 million North American headquarters campus.

Those plans for the 100-acre corporate campus include a data center, a massive eight-building office complex with a grand entrance off Headquarters Drive near Legacy Drive, as well as four warehouse buildings to the west of the campus.

The campus is bound by Headquarters Drive to the south, Legacy Drive to the East and State Highway 121 to the north.

"We are excited to reach another milestone in turning our vision for Toyota's new headquarters into a reality," said Toyota spokesman Javier Moreno. He declined further comment.

Other plans also include a number of other smaller office and auxiliary buildings on the campus, as well as room for three more future office buildings to the north of the large office complex. The campus also includes five parking garages, as well as some surface parking.

Are you thinking of the BoA motor bank site Perot bought? Here's that thread: https://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1671991

That site may go supertall.





The render above is for the old GE Pension Trust site at Turtle Creek which will now be Perot's Hillwood HQ.

I think it's a separate building from Perot

M-M Properties’ development site is just across Turtle Creek from where Perot Group is building its new headquarters between Turtle Creek and the Katy Trail.

Included on the site will be an office complex, warehouses and several parking garages.

New North Dallas mixed-use project nears February opening, plans $150 million second phase

Quote:
Developers of the new Preston Hollow Village on North Central Expressway have already leased more than half of the North Dallas mixed-use project.

The first phase of the project under construction at Walnut Hill Lane and North Central opens in February with a 14,000-square-foot Trader Joe’s grocery store.

Also 75,000 square feet of retail space and a 60,000-square-foot office building will be ready early next year.

“It’s been well received,” said Leon Backes, CEO of developer Provident Realty Advisors. “If we had just taken anybody we could have filled it up four times over.

“We are trying to get the right mix,” Backes said. “We have some other tenants we’re close on we’ve held out some of the prime space.”
Quote:
The next section to be built in the 42-acre project will include three 7-story apartment buildings constructed just north of the shopping center, which will house 513 rental units.

“The next phase will be close to $150 million in development,” he said.

Hines, Cousins team up on new Victory Park office tower

Quote:
Houston-based developer Hines is teaming up with Cousins Properties Inc. to break ground next year on a 23-story office tower in Dallas’ Victory Park project.

The 466,000-square-foot glass high-rise will be the largest office project in the 75-acre development on the northwest corner of downtown Dallas.

The new tower called Victory Center – designed by Duda/Paine Architects – would open in 2017 on Houston Street southwest of the American Airlines Center arena.

“It’s a 23-month construction period,” said Hines’ Heath Johnson, who heads the company’s Dallas development operations. “When you look at how well the other projects in the area have done, there is definitely room to grow in this market.”

Hines said its One Victory Park tower, which is located next door to the new office building site, is more than 90 percent leased. That building opened in 2008 and is 17 stories.

Several other new office buildings now going up in Dallas’ Uptown district and downtown are substantially leased.

Dallas County sells the old Cabana Motor Hotel to developer likely to replace it with residential high-rise

Quote:
On Tuesday afternoon the Dallas County Commissioners Court went behind closed doors for a brief executive session, then emerged to vote on selling the property identified only as 899 N. Stemmons Freeway. With no discussion, only one commissioner voted against the sale: Elba Garcia. The purchase price: $8.7 million, or $500,000 less than the county paid for it in 1985. Garcia says she thought “we left some money on the table.”

As expected Lincoln Property Company bought the 399,000-square-foot property sitting on 3.275 acres near the Design District, and sources familiar with the negotiations say it plans to demolish the building and replace it with a residential high-rise and a data center. Messages have been left for Lincoln’s executive vice president of finance, Clay Duvall, who told us last month only that “we’ve looked at it a bunch of different ways.”
