Expected to complete in 2017, this community, designed by GDA Architects, will offer a range of apartments and penthouses with stunning views in all directions. Residents will enjoy a resort-style pool, indoor and outdoor lounges, a fitness center and specialized dog grooming facilities on-site.

From the DMN 2/13/17: 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)

They submitted an application for the sitework to begin. That should start in 60-90 days. They had to make some design changes based on preliminary discussions with the city last year -- nothing you would notice. The basic design/look remains. They had to make the building's footprint smaller (is that why it went from 18 to 20 stories? or is 20 just Steve Brown "rounding"?) They did lower the height of the parking garage as was pointed out by somebody already looking at the last version of drawings by adding a second underground level.

Found this rendering from 2016, are we still thinking this is close to the final design?

Some small changes (parking garage looks one level shorter, changes to glass/brick ratio on tower, some changes to top couple of floors). Here are the drawings from GDA Architects currently posted.

This one seems to be taking forever. I think we got wind of it maybe two years ago. One year ago, the existing buildings were demolished. Then nothing for a year. Today a small bit of progress. Today they removed the billboard. Perhaps we will see physical evidence of progress begin soon.

Here is a pic of the billboard from before the lots were cleared. You gotta love the message:

"Dallas is waiting."

I noticed the billboard missing as well. Hopefully things pick up soon. This will have a great presence along NCX.

A construction trailer was delivered today. Man with truck and chainsaw eyeing the trees remaining on this property. Perhaps this one is finally moving forward after 2+ years.

That small adjacent lot is part of the project. Will eventually be the private park for the tower residents.

Also, lots of paint markings in the alley. Ready to begin utility work perhaps?

OK. I just stopped by the construction site and spoke with Mike, the Construction Manager (there were a number of men in and out of the construction trailer complex) and they are indeed beginning the project. He also mentioned a project in Lakewood and the 40-story apartment tower in downtown Fort Worth Southern Land is proposing. All in all, a very brief encounter but the best one so far.

They are off and running on this site. This week work started on the new sewer line in the alley. Also several deliveries of sand and gravel placed on the site. It took a while, now we wait while they dig the hole, two stories deep if I am remembering correctly then three stories up. It will be a stretch again before we see it rise above ground level.
