2702 McKinney Avenue: McKinney and Boll

2702 McKinney Avenue: McKinney and Boll
Last seen in September, this reworking of the HKS-designed McKinney and Boll building was worth it. There’s one big change that vastly helps this project. If you look above, you’ll see a car turning right into the building. In the first iteration, that driver would be ramming the building. Now, they’re entering the valet and parking garage area.



The reason is simple. In the original plan, all traffic was shuffled to the back alley (“1” above) and/or around the building due to McKinney’s traffic flow. The new plan (“2”) where cars pull through the building is a much better solution.

Good job.
