283 rooms seems pretty small for a JW. I like the decoration on the glass.

Mandarin Oriental to 2999 Turtle Creek

One of the world's poshest hotel flags is finally planting in Dallas after a failed attempt before the 2008 Recession in Victory Park. Landing in the same zip code but a little to the northwest. The development will contain 176 rooms and 120 residences. More details will come later down the road.

Great news to hear about the JW! To be completely honest, I was a bit worried we were going to be stuck with that parking garage without any of the mixed-use components being built for 5+ years.

High-rise Hilton hotel in the works for Uptown Dallas
Steve Brown
November 12, 2019



An Austin developer seeks to build a 19-story hotel project in Dallas’ Uptown District.

The high-rise would be built at Hall Street and Oak Grove, just off McKinney Avenue, by Merritt Development Group. The more than 300-room property would be dual-branded as Motto and Spark — two new Hilton brands.

The Dallas project would be the first combination of Motto and Spark hotels in the country, a representative for the developer said. The project is one of several hotels in the works for the area just north of downtown Dallas.

Chicago developer eyes Oak Lawn senior housing
Steve Brown
November 12, 2019



A Chicago-based senior housing firm is proposing a new project in Dallas’ Oak Lawn neighborhood. The 13-story assisted living and memory care building would be constructed just south of Highland Park on Herschel Avenue.

The senior housing project would replace several small residential and commercial buildings on the block, which is already zoned for high-rise construction. Two multistory buildings are already located along the street.

Will the 1,121 ft Smart District Tower ever be built or is that project dead?

Most likely it's on the backburner until a corporate tenant shows interest in signing a lease, so it's a longshot at this point.

So I got the chance to visit home for Thanksgiving and I've got to say that all the stuff that was under construction when I visited this past spring has turned out really nice. I took about a million photos but here are some of the better ones.

Exxir Capital's building on Davis (denoted as 'Building B' on their masterplan)

Mural along the backside of Building B

Building B landscaping along 9th Street. I really appreciate the aesthetic they're going for with the cactus.

Streetscape along Bishop.

Building E on the opposite side of the street.

Building A right next to it.

New French Bazaar in Building B.

Plaza on the corner of Bishop and Melba

New condos on Melba

I also got the chance to photograph some stuff going up in other parts of town but my last post was getting a bit long so I decided to split it into its own post.

Trinity Green (West Dallas)

AMLI Fountain Place

Nove at Knox

Convexity's tower next to Mockingbird Station

Wondering if it'll be visible from Central Expressway since you can easily make out its construction crane.

Downtown "Discovery District" (kind of a dopey name but whatever)

Sick front entrance though

Case Building in Deep Ellum. Not sure if I remember these murals being on it last time I was here.

Residential Portion of 'The Epic'

Flora & Olive Tower

The Victor popping out from behind Victory Park's skyline
