Knox / Henderson - Knox Street Side

Restarting a general thread about Knox/Henderson.

Received an email with a survey from Room and Board today:

"We're searching for a store location in the Knox District of Dallas. Specifically, we are considering combining two storefronts at 4524 McKinney Avenue, which are currently a Nest store and a former Design Within Reach showroom."

R&B would be a fantastic addition to Knox, and it would be great to have one of their stores in Dallas, finally. I wonder if this would be a big enough space, though? Can't beat the location...

I'll put this here since I've noticed it's going vertical...

I saw Bardot Place was going vertical too. I took some pics but forgot to upload them. Nothing really to see except "I" beams stinking out of the roof.

I am not familiar with Room and Board. Looks nice and a good fit for the neighborhood. If they need more space, could they take the two available spaces and go vertical? As soon as I saw the signs at NEST I was wondering if someone would combine the spaces. I had the same thought when 4510 moved, but apparently they are staying with a furniture focus in their old space. I know others have been supportive of more soft goods retailers, but I am ok with Knox Street being the furniture capital of Dallas. It makes sense with all the apts and condos going up in the area.

What a super-sweet shopping destination this is becoming! Certainly on the pricey side, so maybe not for the college student or struggling artist (haha) but quality is usually worth the price. I've been trying to mentally work-up a predictive relationship between Highland Park Village and what Knox is becoming. I think whatever cycle already exist among NorthPark, HPV and Knox will only strengthen the core attributes of each as nearby Dallas neighborhoods gentrify with far more residents and far more disposable income. Streetcars between downtown and Knox cannot happen soon enough.

What is interesting about Bardot Place is the city wouldn't grant them permission to add on to the building. From what I understand they could, however, float a building over the top.

I thought the original plan called for 2 restaurant spaces on the ground floor of this project; however, when you go to the website it lists Kohler, a hair salon, a gym, and a nail salon with "additional retail spaces coming soon." No mention of restaurants, I guess they changed the plan? Great amenities for local considering all the MF units around there.

Maybe they don't need more restaurants. I certainly like seeing varied retail options.

Does anyone know when Knox Street will begin the lane reduction and sidewalk expansion? Last I heard, this was approved, funded, and expected to begin in 2017. I was just wondering if anyone had any more specific information.

Looks to me like le bilboquet is planning to open their oyster bar concept in May on the corner. The other spaces look like they are being subdivided into individual retail spaces. Could be Marine Layer or OV, but probably not Royal Blue as I've read elsewhere. I wish Royal Blue would open a store in the Knox neighborhood.

The old Chili's appears to be divided up into 4 spaces and the facade is repainted. I like it!
I'm really looking forward to the development starting where Sur la Table used to be. Any news on when that may kick off?

I would say you're looking at classic 3-story condo construction..

I've noticed that kind of development has taken over the Fitzhugh side of this area. Condos going up left and right replacing single family homes and outdated apartment blocks. It is not all apartments those projects just get more press coverage. Between Oaklawn and Maple is the same thing some plots are leveled for apartment blocks other are building townhomes and a few have renovated older apartment blocks.

You're right I shouldn't use those term so interchangeably but yes I mean Townhomes. Fitzhugh and Henderson area is seeing lots of three-four story townhome construction.

On Fitzhugh it's reached all the down to Live Oak. There is even a group of townhomes under construction on Gaston and a few even south of Columbia.

Interestingly, most of those "Townhomes" are actually condos. "Townhome" sells better and people normally associate condo with high rise or a larger development, but most of the projects are actually in a condo regime.

The point was that condo is just an ownership structure and doesn't describe the type of units going up.

Is a condo regime for townhouses atypical?

It's certainly not atypical in what's being built throughout east Dallas right now, but I don't know about other markets. You can find Townhomes that are fee simple and that's generally preferred to condo due to lower HOA fees, easier financing, etc. For example, most of the late 90s/early 2000s units built on Lewis east of Greenville are fee simple and there HOA dues are a fraction of the $150-$300+/mo most condominium units charge. I bought one of the new condo/townhomes about a year ago and would certainly have preferred fee simple ownership, but they're hard to find. I did manage to find one with lower HOA dues and wouldn't even consider anything north of about $200/mo.

You can look on DCAD and easily tell what are fee simple vs condo based on the units being platted individually vs one parcel with multiple accounts.

$200 sounds like a steal vs. some of the monthly HOA fees at the lux condo towers.

I've seen HOA fees of around $1400/month along Turtle Creek. :o

High rise condos are an entirely different ballgame when it comes to HOA fees. Not only are insurance and R&M much more expensive, but you typically get many more amenities like pools, fitness, and concierge staff than you do in townhouse style condos.

From the DMN: Developer Southern Land Co. has filed the building permits for its high-rise apartment planned in Dallas' Knox Street district.

The 310-unit, 20-story building is planned on North Central Expressway at Oliver Street. Building permits say that the tower will cost almost $73 million.

Construction is set to begin on the building at midyear, according to a Southern Land representative. The developer has already demolished small buildings that previously occupied the site.
The project was designed by GDA Architects (renderings on their website)

Can Developers only develop SF Homes there?

Some row homes would have been cool.

Room & Board, a popular furniture retailer, is coming to Dallas
Maria Halkias

American-made modern home furnishings retailer Room & Board plans to open its first Texas store in Dallas later this year. The retailer which has a cult-like following already has a long online customer base in the Dallas area.
The Minneapolis-based furniture retailer is combining two spaces on McKinney Ave., just south of Knox, formerly occupied Nest and Design Within Reach. The popular Nest home and design store closed last in December after ten years. Design Within Reach moved into NorthPark last year.

Dallas based Erdos at home (fka IO Metro) closing all locations according to DMN. The Dallas location is directly across the street from the just announced Room and Board. The competition is stiff, particularly if RH triples in size.

Those old condos are still there for now. In fact I'm pretty sure I saw a for sale sign up for a unit there last weekend. Trinsic did Aura on McKinney a few blocks south I think.

Those condos were bought out a couple of years ago. They've had rezoning signage for the last year for height. Trinsic building 5 stories on a podium sounds right to me.
