This part of town continues to emerge as the most expensive residential neighborhood in North Texas.

...Crescent Real Estate plans to build the more than 30-floor luxury residential tower on Maple Avenue between the Stoneleigh Hotel and the Crescent...The high-rise is set to go up at 2811 Maple Ave., just north of Cedar Springs. The tower would replace a low-rise commercial building.

“It could have been office or hospitality, but after some analysis of the market, luxury, multifamily became the obvious and logical choice.” The building will have about 220 rental units that average 1,200 square feet in size, which is significantly larger than the typical new Uptown apartment. “We thought the market needed a project really geared to a different clientele than other buildings in Uptown we have seen,” Pitchford said. “There is a place in the market for a higher-end project. “There will be a really good mix of two-bedroom and three-bedroom units a more mature, professional audience will appreciate.”

... most floors will have only six to eight rental units... five levels of underground parking,”

Sad to see the building they are tearing down go. Its been empty ever since I noticed it years ago so I get it but this section of Uptown definitely seems to be a hotspot right now. This high rise looks nice and they are obviously targeting empty nesters rather than college students/20 something club goers.

This area will be much better after all of this, especially if the Concrete Cowboy and Quadrangle sites' development materializes.

Why are you sad? It doesn't look to be a very interesting building there now.

The only thing that's kinda a bummer is the amount of units. It's not that dense.

There's also a bigger need for more affordable units.

It's just the building has more character than most commercial buildings in Dallas.

Glad to see the more pedestrian oriented parts of town become more built up.

I'm glad to see the local economy seems to still be moving forward, and glad to see they are providing some three bedroom units, which might help encourage more families to move into the area and diversify the demographics a little more.

I’ve always liked the Thomas Building too.

I know it's not historical and I wouldn't stop this high rise development ever to preserve it but it's funny there are far less attractive buildings in that area I wouldn't mind seeing toppled for a high rise but the one I think actually looks like it could be perfect for a number of uses sits empty and is about to be demoed.

At least we are getting buried parking here as well. No street-level garage with a tower slapped on top.

Hopefully does not meet the street with a wall and/or a valet car park, continuing the current trend of new buildings in the area being less integrated with the streets than the older ones they are replacing.

I'm not sure I have ever noticed this building. But I do agree it does have more character than most.

Kudos to Crescent for proposing a taller tower, putting the parking underground, and caring about pedestrians and streetscape on their frontage. Other developers should take note.

Hopefully Kairoi (across the street), does similar things with their pedestrian access. It'd be the least they could do considering that they're building a non mixed-use development in a location that is primed for it.

Like to see more renderings but so far I think this building looks pretty nice. Glad it's at least 30 floors.
