I just want to see this built as originally proposed for the site in the 80's....lol

Kaizen Development Partners — which already has one major central Dallas project in the works — and Woods Capital bought the huge building site on the north side of downtown.
They're planning a major mixed-use development on the two-block, almost 6-acre property near Woodall Rodgers Freeway and Field Street.
Kaizen and Woods Capital are buying the land from a Dallas investor who bought the property five years ago with plans to build a South Asian museum and cultural center.
The buyers say their preliminary plans call for 750,000 square feet of office space, 50,000 square feet of retail space and 300 multifamily apartment units.
The developers say they will build the huge project in phases.

Initial plans for the first phase call for 750,000 square feet of office space, 50,000 square feet of retail space, and 300 multifamily units. Construction is expected to get underway in the fall of 2020.
