yes, that's precisely the lot, leaving an undeveloped lot between it and 3700 McKinney.

Hard Rock Cafe space in Uptown Dallas to become mixed-use high-rise tower
By Teresa Gubbins
7.31.13 | 10:02 am

Years after the old, much-revered Hard Rock Cafe on McKinney Avenue in Uptown Dallas was razed, plans are finally underway for a new high-rise to be built on that site.

Stoneleigh Companies has acquired the land for the development of One Dallas, a mixed-use, high-rise tower at the northeast corner of McKinney and Routh. One Dallas will include up to 30,000 square feet of premium restaurant and retail space and 200 apartment units in a 20-story tower.

"The former Hard Rock Cafe site has been sought after as the best development location in Texas," said Rick Cavenaugh, president of Stoneleigh Companies.

"The acquisition of the site for One Dallas is an opportunity to develop the premier multi-family property in the rapidly expanding Uptown market," said Rick Cavenaugh, president of Stoneleigh.

"The former Hard Rock Cafe site has been sought after as the best development location in Texas, and we are fortunate to ... work with architect Phil Shepherd to design an iconic tower that will include two or three world-class restaurants and 200 units of super luxury apartments. We expect to break ground on the tower in 1Q14."

No relation to the Stoneleigh Hotel in Dallas, Stoneleigh Companies is a private real estate investment and development company. It has acquired more than 3,600 units in the past three years and is building more than 1,000 units, including M2 Apartments in Denver, One Arlington in Chicago and Waterford Springs in Houston.

Stoneleigh's partner on the project is Dallas developer/investor Cheng Investments. The two have co-invested on two other projects in Texas in the past three years, including the 80-unit Silver Spring Senior Housing property in Forney and Waterford Springs, a 308-unit new construction project near the Woodlands.

Are both sides of Parkland not glass like this? Upclose, it certainly looks like it, while far away it almost looks like some sort of glass tile. certainly far more interesting and attractive than the pics in this thread make it look.

Large downtown Dallas site bought for South Asian museum

One of the largest and most coveted development sites in downtown Dallas has changed hands.
The 4.7-acre property at Woodall Rodgers Freeway and Field Street is at the gateway to Uptown and is just across the highway from the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science.
Back in the 1980s, the prime property was planned for a 100-story office skyscraper.
The new owner of the land — a foundation set up by prominent North Texas doctor and medical researcher Vinay Jain — plans to build a South Asian museum and cultural center on the tract.
Dr. Jain, who practices with the Texas Oncology-Baylor Charles A. Sammons Cancer Center in East Dallas, came to Dallas from India in 1993. He and his wife, Kanika, live in Dallas’ Preston Hollow neighborhood and are active in philanthropic and cultural organizations.
The Jains’ nonprofit Shraman South Asian Museum and Learning Center Foundation bought the downtown property after looking at other potential locations for a venue to display South Asian art and culture.
Dr. Jain said he’s lining up consultants and contributors from North Texas and worldwide to work on the project.
“The community of Indians is getting to the point they have accumulated wealth,” Dr. Jain said. “Now there is an opportunity to contribute back to the community.”
The Field Street tract was bought from apartment developer Gables Residential Trust. Gables acquired the land — for years used as a parking lot — in 2007 with plans to build a major apartment and mixed-use development.

The first phase of Preston Hollow Villlage on Walnut Hill Lane will include a Trader Joe's grocery store.

It’s the most prominent vacant lot in all of Dallas.
The empty corner at Walnut Hill Lane and busy North Central Expressway is visible to tens of thousands of commuters every day.

Architects and developers eye choice Turtle Creek tract in Dallas’ Oak Lawn district
By Steve Brown

6:36 am on August 1, 2013

Quote:
A Turtle Creek property that’s been in the same hands since the 1980s boom could finally be getting a building.

The empty, hillside lot at Turtle Creek Boulevard and Cedar Springs Road has been owned by investor General Electric Pension Trust since 1986.

Now GE is working with a developer and Houston’s Ziegler Cooper Architects and Odell Architects of Virginia on a 20-story office tower for the Oak Lawn site.

The development location is just a few blocks north of Uptown and the landmark Crescent complex.

That South Asian sounds like a really cool idea especially with all the museums nearby

I just hope it has some walkable urban elements to it!

maybe a small park or some residential with shops at the bottom!... after all it is quite a big plot of land.

A successful Atlanta developer that has built high-rise residential buildings at home and in other markets is tying up a tract in Dallas’ Victory Park development.

Novare Group is buying a site on the north side of Woodall Rodgers Freeway between the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science and the House of Blues.

The property will be used for an apartment tower of more than 20 stories, real estate brokers who are tracking the deal say.

I'm willing to bet that this new apartment tower will be a Skyhouse.
