Dallas county schools

The developer who bought the Dallas County Schools building on the northeast corner of Zang at Davis is planning to build apartments, shops and restaurants there.

Here’s what Crescent Communities, a North Carolina-based builder, is planning for the site, which currently houses the bus system that serves Dallas schools:

  • 300 apartments reaching up to six stories,
  • a seven-story parking garage,
  • 13,000 square feet of restaurants and
  • 10,000 square feet of shops.

The complex also would have a roof deck with a pool and a 3,000-square-foot public plaza at the ground level, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Along Zang, the developer would like to build townhomes as well, but that would require a zoning change.

Crescent, which so far hasn’t sought public funding for this project, also has plans to build an apartment tower in Uptown and another apartment complex in Deep Ellum. The Bishop Arts project is at the same intersection as Alamo Manhattan’s residential-over-retail project, which is receiving $11.25 million from the city in future tax reimbursements.
