Luxury hotel on the way in Dallas' Uptown area near Crescent
One of the Uptown area's oldest and largest real estate developments plans to add a hotel.
The Harwood project north of downtown Dallas already includes a dozen blocks of office and residential buildings and retail stretching from near the Crescent to the entrance of the Dallas North Tollway.
Now developer Harwood International has filed plans with the city to build a a hotel in the district.
The 20-story hotel tower would be built on a 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.
A Harwood International spokesman said the real estate firm would soon provide details of the timing of its hotel project.
Harwood is just finishing construction on its new Rolex Building at Moody and Harry Hines Boulevard.
And construction is underway on the firm's next office tower project - the 22-story Harwood No. 10 tower being built at McKinnon and Randall Street.
Harwood is also building the 33-story Bleu Ciel condo tower near Harwood and Wolf streets.
The developers planned hotel tower is one several such projects proposed in the Uptown area.
Developer Alamo Manhattan Corp. proposes to build a 19-story Marriott Hotel on a half-block site off Maple Avenue near Turtle Creek.
