DALLAS | M-Line Tower | 20 FLOORS

Steve Brown
September 22, 2015


Trammell Crow Co. says that the project at 3230 McKinney Avenue will have 271 apartments in a 20-story tower.

There will be 13,000 square feet of ground floor retail.

The new McKinney Avenue trolley headquarters, museum and trolley barn will be on the southwest corner of the new building on Bowen Street at Oak Grove.

“Adding another trolley, barn space and a museum with leadership offices has been a goal of ours for years, but the opportunity to do it the right way has never presented itself,” Phil Cobb, founder of the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority, said in a statement. “This space adjacent to where we are currently headquartered is exactly what we needed to realize the vision and grow.”

Underground parking would serve the tower.

Trammell Crow Co. affiliate begins construction on new 20-story tower in Uptown

High Street Residential, a Dallas-based residential development subsidiary of Trammell Crow Co., in partnership with Principal Real Estate Investors, has started construction on M-Line Tower on the heels of the demolition of the Cafe Express restaurant.

Right before Halloween, Cafe Express shuttered its doors, closing its Uptown restaurant until 2017, when developers plan to complete M-Line Tower, a 20-story, 262-unit luxury residential and retail tower at 3200 McKinney Ave. in Dallas.

Construction is slated to be complete in 2017. Cafe Express plans to keep its two Dallas operations open until the Uptown restaurant's return.
