Park Board split over whether Dallas or a developer should pay for ‘top priority’ Pacific Plaza in downtown

http://cityhallblog.dallasnews.com/2...ic-plaza.html/



Quote:
There are, for now, three proposals to develop the long-proposed three-acre Pacific Plaza park on what’s currently a 300-or-so spot downtown Dallas parking lot bound by North St. Paul, Live Oak and North Harwood streets. Developer Shawn Todd has a $100-million plan that includes a sprawling eight-level parking structure stretching over Pacific Avenue. Mukemmel “Mike” Sarimsakci’s $600-million proposal calls for planting two massive towers on the proposed park. And former Dallas City Council member Ron Natinsky wants to bury a mechanical parking garage beneath the park, at a price tag not yet made public.

Mukemmel's plan would be best for the neighborhood…residential + park space + retail would breath new life in the area. BTW, those towers are GORGEOUS.

Yes, the towers are sexy.

I just wish we had a skyline pic so, we could see how the buildings would look (and the height compared to other buildings)

Mukemmel's plan is definitely the best. Just depends on how much the city is willing to pony up.

Sarimsakci’s is the far superior plan and yes, those towers are gorgeous! It is difficult to tell how the buildings would appear in the context of the skyline, but I'm sure their addition would be impactful, especially given their location in relation to the rest of the skyline (at its center).

I think the developers should be ponying up to the city instead.

Cold hard numbers suggest $100 million is easier to raise than $600 million, which favors the parking garage. Plus there's that plan to reuse the empty 50-story bank building for condos. So we'll see what happens.

On the other hand, DFW is about 115,000 up on its job numbers compared to last year, so there may be some momentum for something big.

Although not eye-catching like Fountain Place or the Crescent, Bleu Ciel is just as well-sculpted as seen in the trilogy of streamline "fins."
The architecture makes a statement, whilst not screaming "look at me!" Bleu Ciel is classy, just what Harwood wanted.
Good job Wilmott & Associes!

"This is good for the Statler and this is good for downtown," Trevino added. "Centurion will take the Statler to the next level. It's a great experience seeing the excitement for downtown Dallas right now."
Moayedi plans to redevelop the Statler Hilton, as well as the adjacent George Dahl-designed building next to the historic hotel that once houses the Dallas Public Library, into a mixed-use development, which a hotel, residential, restaurant and retail space and office space.

The redo -- which had preliminary plans for a theater, a ballroom and hotel lounge -- includes two nearby parking lots next to the Statler and the former library.

More Bleu Ciel renderings:

From these renderings, Bleu Ciel will apparently dwarf Azure. It sits higher, is wider, and taller.

Sneak peek at new Uptown apartment tower that will start soon

Quote:
You might remember it was back in early 2013 that developer Harwood International announced plans to build an urban style apartment project in Dallas’ Design District.

The project is planned for a former showroom complex site near the intersection of Oak Lawn Avenue and Market Center Boulevard.

It looks that way in the rendering, but the scale/perspective is just out of whack. Bleu Ciel and Azure are actually pretty close to identical in terms of height and scale.
