Great find, can't believe another 300 footer coming to Victory Park. The project really did turn around remarkably. Also, I'm a big fan of the pedestrian footbridge at Mockingbird. It feels good to see developments really understand that walkability is important for longterm sustainability.

After two-year wait, feds OK $11 million loan guarantee needed to redo Cedars hotel tower

Quote:
On New Year’s Eve the city of Dallas and the developers hoping to redo a deteriorating hotel on the Cedars side of Interstate 30 got the news they’d been waiting for since the fall of 2012: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will guarantee an $11 million loan needed to begin the renovations. U.S. Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson’s office informed Dallas City Hall of the good news this week; HUD officials confirmed the approval Friday.

D-FW area is tops in the nation for apartment leases and rents rising at record rates
Quote:
The Dallas-Fort Worth area led the country for apartment rentals in 2014.

Net apartment leasing in North Texas totaled 15,226 units, according to year-end data from MPF Research Inc.

Local vacancy levels are at a 13-year low. Only about 5 percent of rental units are empty.

And apartment rents in the D-FW area rose by a record 4.9 percent last year.

“Annual increases above 4 percent are rare in this market,” MPF Research vice president Greg Willett said in the report. “Because we’re such a construction hot spot, the flow of new product moving through initial lease-up normally holds rent growth below the national norm.”

Average apartment rents in the D-FW area are now $919 a month. Apartments in Dallas’ more popular, close-in urban markets go for even more – averaging $1,700 to $1,800 for recently-built rental communities.

Developers completed 15,575 North Texas apartments last year. And at the end of the fourth quarter, 30,196 units were still under construction in the area.

That’s the largest D-FW apartment building volume since the 1980s boom, according to Carrollton-based MPF. It’s also one of the largest apartment construction totals in the country.

Almost 8,200 apartments are being built in central Dallas neighborhoods including Uptown, Oak Cliff, Oak Lawn, West Dallas and East Dallas.

Hopefully, there will be an announcement soon and based on the past, a quick construction start

I hope they still plan on building in the oaklawn area as well, although a second skyhouse in victory is also awesome

Major apartment development starts next door to State Farm’s new Richardson campus

Quote:
Construction has started on a large new rental community just across the street from State Farm Insurance’s huge campus in Richardson.

Trinsic Residential Group is building the 11.7-acre apartment project on the north side of Bush Turnpike at the DART commuter rail line in Plano

The 2, 3 and 4-story apartment buildings will have a combination of flats and townhouse-style rental units.

The 386-unit Aura One90 project is just a short walk under the turnpike to DART’s rail station and State Farm’s office buildings in the $1.5 billion CityLine project.

Looks like downtown will get more of the much needed first-class office space as well as retail space and an exterior makeover.

Main Street tower in downtown Dallas gets new owner who plans makeover
Quote:
A local entrepreneur who has already pumped millions of dollars into the downtown Dallas restaurant scene is now making a play in the office market.

FAQ Capital LLC headed by Mike Hoque has just purchased the 27-story Adolphus Tower on Main Street with plans to redevelop the building into first-class offices and restaurant space.

The 181,000-square-foot, 60-year-old office tower is about 70 percent leased to a variety of business and retail tenants. Major tenants include WhichWich’s corporate headquarters, the State of Texas, The Berry Law Firm, Mathis & Donheiser Law Firm and consulting firm Litzler, Segner, Shaw & McKenney.

The new owners plan to give the high-rise a new exterior plus rebuild the ground floor for restaurant and retail tenants.

Buyer Hoque’s DRG Concepts has developed a string of popular downtown restaurants including Dallas Chop House, Dallas Fish Market and Wild Salsa. He’s credited with significantly boosting the downtown restaurant market.

That's great news. Dallas and the metro have so much going for in 2015. There are many buildings that will be U/C this year just in Uptown/Victory/Harwood. I made a Victory/Harwood rundown but will have a harder time with Uptown.

I'm disapointed that they didn't try to keep the design close to this.

My thought is they want to avert a Nasher/Museum Tower type fiasco. Even on the rendering you can see the reflection it would create on the neighboring building.

It will be interesting to see a rendering with a better angle on the 32 floor residential tower. I'm excited we have new residential going up that tall in the city of Dallas now!

Aloft Hotel, Whole Foods grocery coming to Richardson’s huge CityLine development
Quote:
Developer KDC has quietly broken ground on two more building projects at its $1.5 billion CityLine development in Richardson.

Work has started on the 66,000-square-foot CityLine retail center at the northeast corner of Renner and Plano roads. The shopping center will be anchored by a 40,000-square-foot Whole Foods Market grocery store.

Whole Foods plans to open its new CityLine store in early 2016.

And across the street on the west side of Plano Road construction has kicked off on a 150-room Aloft Hotel which will be built adjacent to State Farm Insurance’s new office campus.

IF you haven't seen this development yet, it's absolutely massive. I commute through the George Bush DART station nearly every day to get to UTD, and this entire area has been absolutely transformed in the past 2 years. I'm genuinely excited to see how much the traffic on the trains will increase as soon as State Farm opens it's doors.

Definitely agree. Not only will it be a huge employment center but it's pretty much a whole neighborhood with shops, restaurants, and apartments all near DART. And the added ridership will be without adding more rail, so the riders per mile and station will increase. Speaking of DART light rail it finally surpassed 100k riders per weekday according to APTA's 3rd quarter ridership report released in December. It doesn't give us a full account of DFW airport station since it opened on the latter part of August so it only averages out for half of the quarter.

Legacy West plans are detailed with zoning approvals

Quote:
The first 35.4-acre phase of the $2 billion project will start next month, developer Fehmi Karahan confirms.

Included in the first phase will be 784 luxury apartments, 280,000 square feet of retail and 260,000 square feet of office space.

There’s also a 300-room, $82 million Renaissance Hotel that will be built on Legacy Drive just west of the tollway.

Legacy West’s developers are also working on plans for a high-rise condominium building that would be constructed at the north end of their mixed-use project.

The bridge is part of a larger project called The Horseshoe. It is scheduled to be done by summer 2017. I haven't seen any information on whether the bridge will finish sooner.

On a separate note. Those two pillars rising will join as they go up, but underneath them is where pedestrians and bicycles will be able to cross the Trinity. The bridge will feature this on both sides.
