Knox: Armstrong &Cole

Postby DPatel304 » 15 Dec 2017 22:32

Alliance, the nation’s second largest apartment developer according to the National Multifamily Housing Council 2017 rankings, proposes a new multifamily development of approximately 335 units. The site is located at the southeast corner of Armstrong and Cole Avenues and extends south almost to Oliver Street.

At 85 feet, the proposed tower will likely top out at about seven stories, although that specific number is not specified in the statement.

The project site encompasses 2.2 acres. Given the requested height and the known footprint, this project will likely be similar in appearance to Alliance’s Broadstone brand, one of which was recently completed in West Dallas — and probably nothing like the Miro apartment tower the company built in Uptown.

Sorry if this has been posted already, it's hard to keep up with all the small/mid-sized projects going on.

This development has been mentioned before in the general Knox Street thread. It needs it's own thread though as it seems to be moving forward.

I think the latest iteration of the plan is different from the Dallas Towers article referred to below. That plan was presented to OLC for review and was not received well. Since then, I think they proposed a different version which included a 22 story tower at the Armstrong (north) end of the property and three story apartments for the rest of the lot.

Here is a link from last month about the latest proposal:

There are some meetings with the developer and the neighborhood locals set up early next week. Hopefully we can get some more information then.

A great location for a tower and would be a great spot for some retail at that corner!

Sorry about the typo in the title guys. This will not be 22 St (or 240 ST :D). From the article this will be, at most, seven stories tall:
At 85 feet, the proposed tower will likely top out at about seven stories, although that specific number is not specified in the statement.

We'll see. The Candy's Dirt article actually says the revised proposed tower is 22 stories.

My understanding was that it was to have a tower included in the latest iteration.

^ Good to know! Sounds like it's certainly possible (and likely) that a tower will go here, but I went ahead and just took out that information, for now, out of the topic title.

Looks like the tower component of this proposed development is out. OLC rejected the idea outright and asked Alliance to go back and get neighborhood support. The neighbors apparently also said “no tower.”

Alliance has returned to and tweaked the original proposal (5 and 7 stories) with setbacks along Cole as the building gets higher (no setback on Armstrong). They propose all underground parking, street level apt access (sounds like The Hudson going up on McKinney Ave north of Knox in that respect). They will keep the Live Oak trees along Cole and add 6 ft sidewalks. All wins considering what is there now. The ask is to go up to 85’ height. Current zoning only allow 35’ which seems odd directly across the street from an 18 story office. Next step is an early January OLC meeting.
