Would you have it as just one residence? There's lots of potential revenue if the ground floor is split into rentals, even some of the second level.


Just dreaming but bottom floor would be interior commercial design office and the rest personal residence. LOL

Oooh, I REALLY hope that's real! That looks way better than their new LA hotel.

Also, according to the reddit post, the hotel is coming in '2020':

I really have no idea how accurate this information is. The timeline seems reasonable, but I don't know where the rendering came from.

It's on their website:

Scroll through the pictures on the right side of screen, it'll be right after Doha.

Yeah, I like the looks of that rendering for sure! I am guessing they now have the land they need to accommodate the valet stuff that seems to be getting in the way before as well as the parking needs.

Cones and barricades on McKinney have been removed. Hotel is "delayed" until June. . .

I like how this project is situated between two buildings and doesn't take up an entire block. I'd personally like to see more developments that are built this way. It adds a nice touch of aesthetic cohesion.

"Whatever happened to the Dream Dallas Hotel? We asked that question ourselves last summer, but it looks like this Uptown boutique hotel project by Dream Hotel Group is still in the pipeline — here’s a new rendering of the project, which is still delayed for unknown reasons but is supposed to break ground in June:"

(Same rendering - nothing new)

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 empty lot.

They apparently plan utility work of some kind in early June, assuming permits/financing/whatever the reason for the hold up is resolved. Hard to believe since this has been discussed for around 5 years now ..

The new Dream on Printers Alley in Nashville, funded by local investors, topped out in late October 2017. One has just been announced for Buckhead in Atlanta:

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).

I've driven past the side multiple times in the last month. The brick building is still partially demoed inside with plywood over some of the openings. It's sad how bad it looks.

The only hope to hang on to is that they are still listed as coming in 2021 on their website:

Hotels: Dream Downtown | Dream Midtown | Dream South Beach | Dream Phuket | Dream Bangkok | Dream Hollywood
Opening in 2018: Dream Nashville
Opening in 2020: Dream Palm Springs | Dream Pattaya Na Jomtien
Opening in 2021: Dream Atlanta Buckhead | Dream Belize | Dream Dallas | Dream Doha | Dream Gasveli Maldives | Dream New Delhi
Opening in 2022: Dream Carabao Island

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 city for the overgrown grass field regularly.

Latest update is demo continues in April, so another four month delay (which brings us to about 6 years since first brought up)

I was just at the one in NYC SOHO and if it ever does come here it will be worth the wait pretty cool place.

I've stayed at the Dream in LA and NYC (the Downtown one) and they've both been great/fun. I sure hope this happens in Dallas.

That's really reassuring to hear. Honestly, when this was announced, it was one of my most anticipated developments. Of course, that was a while ago, and so much has happened in Dallas since then, that this was has quickly become something I care very little about. I'll admit, I know next to nothing about Dream Hotel, so I'm glad to hear that it would still be worth it, if/when it does come.

Is it at all possible that DREAM would pursue a location with another developer? I mean the Central Market project just down the street now includes a second tower meant for a hotel or possible residential in addition to the already seen office tower.

They might be waiting for the neighborhood to mature a little more, the land has been purchased, right? Maybe after the one-way streets are functioning two-way streets the Dream Hotel will get going...?

The city has to come down on them eventually for letting the brick building sit there half demoed. I don't even live that close by but its a real eyesore every time I pass by.

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?

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 to get all the zoning in place. This project is small potatoes compared to that.

Totally agree. The city has no motivation or reason to get involved. Neighbors need to contact Kingston’s office and raise a stink. And chances are he’ll do nothing.

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?
