Developers have unveiled a development project which will construct high rise buildings in Knox according to a Dallas Morning News article from October 29 which reports,
“One of Dallas’ most popular retail and restaurant strips, Knox is getting a new high-rise project that will bring even more activity to the area near Highland Park.
The new project planned by Dallas-developer Trammell Crow Co. — working in partnership with Austin billionaire Dell’s family investment firm — will bring three new buildings on Knox along the Katy Trail.
The 4-acre project will stretch along Travis Street south of Knox and includes luxury residential units, a boutique hotel, retail, offices and a new park.”
A more detailed plan regarding the three buildings planned to be constructed was also reported in a Dallas Morning News article from October 29 which observes,
- “The tallest of the three buildings on Travis Street would have 18 floors of luxury condos built on top of a small hotel. Deluxe hotel operator Auberge Resorts Collection will manage the planned 100-room hotel. Auberge Resorts’ properties include Chileno Bay Resort & Residences and Esperanza in Los Cabos, Mauna Lani in Hawaii, Hotel Jerome in Aspen and Commodore Perry Estate in Austin. The condo tower will include 45 to 50 homes averaging about 3,500 square feet.
- A six-story, 125,000-square-foot office with ground-floor retail would face Knox. About 90,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space is planned in the Knox project. Retail will occupy the first floor. Second-story restaurants will look out on a small park facing the Katy Trail.
- A third residential tower on the south end of the block would include another 150 housing units.
All of the buildings will surround the project’s park.”
The developers also released their vision for Knox Street. It can be seen that Knox Street will contain luxury residential units, retail stores, cafes and even a hotel.
Lastly, the developers also announced that their mixed-use project will be contemplated with an underground parking so as to address the parking issues and utilize every square meter of the 4-acre project.
