Sylvan Thirty developer Brent Jackson is asking the city to rezone an industrial property adjacent to Sylvan Thirty for a mix of multifamily and retail.

The 7-acre tract lies on the north side of Sylvan Thirty and is now used as a truck yard.

Jackson’s request, which is on the City Plan Commission’s consent agenda Thursday, would allow for as many as 250 apartments and 10,000 square feet of retail space.

Jackson bought the property last summer and so far does not have a concrete plan for developing it, says Sylvan Thirty spokesman Cooper Smith Koch.

“At this point, it may be part two of Sylvan Thirty and it may not,” he says.

Sylvan Thirty had been scheduled to go online this month with the opening of Cox Farms Market. But that has been delayed because of road construction on Sylvan.

The city is taking the street from a six-lane road to four lanes with dedicated bike lanes and parallel parking on both sides.

“The last thing we want to do is add to an already congested intersection,” by opening the new grocery, Koch says.

That part of West Dallas is fixed for an apartment boom. Sylvan Thirty itself will have about 200 apartments. More apartments are planned on the site of the Dallas West Mobile Home and RV Park. And Henry S. Miller Co. is planning 326 apartments near the Belmont Hotel.
