Your first look at Forest City's plans for 20-story residential tower on old Hank Haney Golf Center site in West Village

Last summer our Steve Brown noted that Forest City, the folks behind the downtown Mercantile and Continental redos, was making a play for the land once known as Hank Haney's driving range on McKinney and Blackburn across from the West Village. (The move particularly traumatized one young comer on the amateur circuit.) At the time Steve wrote his piece no real deal was in place, but Cityplace Co. Neal Sleeper said it was close, after which Cleveland-based Forest City would build 20 stories of residential and retail, which Good Fulton & Farrell would design.

Above, that's what it'll look like -- more or less. Those renderings are courtesy the briefing you'll find below, part of a Cityplace TIF chitchat the Dallas City Council's Economic Development Committee will have tomorrow morning first thing. The reason it's coming to council: Forest City Residential Group, Inc. says it needs $2.851 million in TIF reimbursements to make the 20-story, 391-apartment unit project "financially feasible."
