Owned, but not necessarily occupied.

Unfortunately, that is at least a 20-year project. Possibly closer to 40 years.

Re: Uptown Dallas: Central Market at McKinney and Lemmon

As long as there is sufficient term remaining on the ground lease (i.e. 40+ years), the ground lease itself should not limit to what can be built. For reference, Northpark Mall was built on a ground lease (eventually sold to Nasher), the World Trader Center in NYC is built on a ground lease, and pre...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Central Market at McKinney and Lemmon

I'd guess that they are working to extend the existing ground lease with the land owner. They need a minimum of 40 years (preferably longer) of remaining term (including lessee options) before they could realistically start redeveloping the site.

Re: Uptown Dallas: One Uptown (~235 FT | 20 ST)

Building looks great. Fogo seems like a very odd choice for a restaurant there. I'll be curious to see how long they last there. My guess is that they won't make it more than 3 or 4 years at most, but I could be wrong.

I'm not the creative type, but 1401 Elm, Elm Station or Elm Place would have all been better alternatives, in my opinion.

Re: Downtown Dallas: The Drever

It still bugs me that they're naming it "The Drever". The name has nothing to do with Dallas. I get that when I invest $240MM to redevelop a vacant skyscraper with an asbestos problem, I can name the building whatever I want... but when some 80 year old dude that looks like the Monopoly Ma...

Re: Grocery Stores: news/development

When the uptown store was closing, an employee there told me that HEB had also purchased the 2 buildings behind the grocery store - the Manny's and Pancake House buildings. It's not showing up on DCAD, but sometimes they are a little slow. Has anyone else heard this? If so, that would obviously indi...
