Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

Didn’t the Gap space just open as Sephora or was that something else?

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

I don’t think Dream is a good indicator because there were/are other issues - like the fact that they didn’t plan on or factor in the neighboring buildings’ demands for underground parking only. But I don’t know. Maybe that kind of thing doesn’t normally kill a project in a super strong market. Plus...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

Surprisingly, Code Compliance was at the property cleaning up today! Demo permit has expired and apparently has not yet been renewed (but has been applied for). Might that explain some of the current delay?

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

It's one of those things where you have to piss off the right person in city hall and then they send the hounds. The Beck Group did that over their multiple delays and denials. A lot of council members made a big deal about the Valley View project creating all the buzz and sticking their necks out ...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

The city doesn’t seem to care at all. It’s been that way for a year and absolutely nothing has been done. I’m not sure there’s anything they can do. Is there?

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

It has now been one year since they put up the fence and barriers. They did about one week of initial demo of second floor windows on red brick law firm. And nothing else. Homeless still live in that building, property owner is not exactly keeping area clean, safe, locked, etc and they are cited by ...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

They haven’t said but word on the street is that the delay is related to their offsite commissary, not the McKinney location.

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

It’s too bad San Martin missed the chance for the Cafe Express space. I saw them painting a sign at the street that is very visible. Plus based on their huge menu and the overall anticipation of the neighborhood, I don’t think they’ll have any problems (assuming it’s as delicious as it looks!)

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

I'm not surprised to see that Café Express has closed. The new format was much less welcoming. Plus the changes in food and poorly trained staff did not make it a good experience. It was usually empty. I figured once St. Martin opens they would close so I'm surprised it happened earlier. Any ideas o...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

Does anyone have reason to believe this project will actually ever happen? ( Last update from developer was they resume demo - that was started December 2017- in November).

There were a dozen or so permits filed for the dream hotel at 3129 McKinney on 4/20/18 I don't know what to make of it but alrighty dreamhotelpermit.png Thanks for posting that. I didn’t think to look under the law firm address since the previous proposals of the hotel were under the address of the...

McKinney Avenue Tavern closed

Not sure if this was planned/ expected as part of new development but personally I think it’s great news

Is cafe express really open? We've been waiting and watching! Must have missed it. Signs only said "now hiring". Yay!

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

Pre-demo is completed for the most part. They were removing "recyclable" material (possibly also referred to as hazardous material). Now apparently on hold until they receive the go-ahead/approval/financing for the actual demo of the red brick building (old law firm). Expected to happen in...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Dream Hotel

Demo started.

As neighbors who often work at home, all we requested was a polite heads-up and advance notice prior to the start of work so we could plan accordingly.

No notice given. :evil:
