Two more Bishop Arts developments in the works

Alamo Manhattan’s Bishop Arts Gateway plan is the latest new development to cause a stir in our neighborhood. It won’t be the last, and it wasn’t the first. Here are two more Bishop Arts developments currently in the works.

The block includes nine single family homes, one empty lot and a 1970s apartment complex, where asbestos remediation is taking place.

The $42-million project planned for this block includes 200 apartments, one- and two-story retail buildings and a two-story underground parking garage. Developer Exxir Capital will recieve $5 million in future tax credits from the city of Dallas. About four years ago, the city kicked in $2 million to help the company buy properties for the project.

The company also has applied for a $2 million economic development grant.

A drawing for a development Crescent has underway near the Buckhead and Midtown districts of Atlanta

The Dallas County Schools Building on Zang at Davis is selling to Charlotte, N.C.-based Crescent Communities. Crescent is still making plans on how to redevelop the property and declined to discuss future plans except to say they will be seeking community input.

The property is part of the Oak Cliff Gateway, and it currently is zoned for up to eight stories with a mix of retail, office, townhouses or apartments.

    Thank you for the update! I’m excited to see what they come up with, and reusing the church will be a huge PR boost for them.

    At least by the time these are filled up, the horseshoe will be done.

    Hey, I saw your other comment, Lakewoodhobo. To answer, the Primrose development is going to change, but they’re not ready to show us what they’re working on yet. The new plan involves reusing the church sanctuary.

    This was inevitable. It’s too bad all the bottlenecks in and out of NOC have yet to be addressed. The horseshoe project, one lane going into and out of downtown, 3 lanes trying to squeeze into one under Commerce, the mess that has been Sylvan and 30 for several years… progress is not going to be fun or convenient.

    There is more coming, folks. Get ready.

    Any update on the Primrose/Magnolia development on 6th and Elzbeth? Last time you reported on this, it would be 70 apartments along the future streetcar line.


    Also, there were rumors that Billingsley was shopping for land around there, so we could be hearing about another one soon.
