"It's effectively the last piece of undeveloped land in that area where you could do something of substance," he said. "Internally we are calling it the crown jewel of McKinney Avenue."

Calling the crown jewel...well that's because the site is about as big as the crown jewel. I will be curious to see what they squeeze on this site.

Guesses on what could go here? Since the lot is small, parking won't be abundant even if the go below ground and above ground. I'm thinking something with less parking needs like a tall, skinny lux condo tower? With like 2-4 residences per floor?

Pipe dream- an average of 3 residences per floor, all with ample outdoor patio space offering panoramic views, and 70 floors so it becomes the tallest residential building in Texas. 210 units. Or.... push it up to about 87 floors and ~260 units and make it the tallest building in Texas haha.

The land could make for something unique and stunning for sure if they spend some serious money on the design. Parking elevator to cut down on the need for ramps.

They don't need to reinvent the wheel. As a reminder, there were already plans in 2001 for a 10-story residential tower here. Of course, it should be much taller.

I like the homage to the crescent. I wouldn't mind something like this over here. There's to much glass IMO over here.

Ah yes 2001 back when Dallas thought it was Paris. Please do a pencil thin modern highrise not a faux past. Would be great to do a fresh modern take on the NYC Flat Iron building.

Just for fun, here's a really old idea for the site (I have some more saved somewhere. . .)

My idea would be observing that Woodbine just bought the neighboring tower at 1845 Woodall Rodgers, which was an early local example of the parking podium tower (floors 9-17 are office, but below that its windows mask a garage). So make the first three or four floors of this site along McKinney something really special.

Then, because there are no tenants to block across the street, get City permission for the parking deck to form a ceiling for the streetfront retail that is architecturally tied in to its design. Think a Texas modern Sistine ceiling that actually spans the avenue at levels 5-8 -- continuous with 1845WR's existing decks 5-8.
1845WR could have the portion of the very large ninth floor amenity deck that falls on its property, and a negotiated portion of the new spaces in the connected garage, while the new tower has the rest.

A little gem from Candysdirt. I know a few people on here we’re speculating after seeing the Rastegar signage.

Exclusive: Rastegar and SCB Preview Fab Lower McKinney Ave. High-Rise

Can Dallas have nice things? If this proposed project goes through, the answer is absolutely yes.

I get it, you’re immediately wondering what those green-walled balconies are running up the building. It’s a sneak peek at a proposed residential tower at 1899 McKinney designed by Chicago-based SCB Architecture for investor/developer Ari Rastegar of Rastegar Property Company – his first new-build in Dallas. Like the man, it’s ambitious architecture for Dallas. When I spoke with Rastegar and SCB principal Clara Wineberg, I imagined a conversation a resident might have explaining where they lived.

I’m guessing Rastegar and Wineberg won’t be invited to the annual developers’ Podium Parking Party and Barn Dance this year.


hahaha

Finally, Dallas has started scratching more than just the surface of it's potential.

Man this is very cool. Really hope the project makes it as shown. Also love Rastegar's quote about developers squeezing every penny at expense of good architecture. Hopefully they stay true to their word and vision!

Wow, this is a good one. All the parking is underground and if I am counting correctly it looks to be about 30 floors? Anybody else get that?

Such a gorgeous tower and yes, it sure looks like it's in the vicinity of 30 floors. :D

They don't have anything planned for the park extension they just threw that in there as a placeholder. The reality is they are trying to get funding for the additional decks without a clear vision or money to build out anything. They know they want the extra space but they don't have a clear use for it nor the funds to do anything more than a grass lawn. I am sure TXDOT also told them if they want that last deck they need to build it now. TXDOT doesn't want to shut down Woodall Rogers every ten years so Klyde Warren can add a new section.

My problem is building space with no real use designed for it is a big waste. They may very well have a future vision for it but since they don't have the funding they don't want to reveal but I doubt that.
