Plans for New Uptown Dallas Tower Move Ahead
Plans for one of Uptown Dallas’ tallest new towers are moving ahead with a key approval. Trammell Crow Co. plans to build the 27-story high-rise on McKinney Avenue at Maple Avenue, next door to the Crescent. The project announced in May would replace the Truluck’s restaurant and former Gold’s Gym buildings between Maple and Fairmount Street. Dallas’ Oak Lawn Committee just gave unanimous approval for the development — the first step in getting city approval for the new tower. Plans for the building call for 670,000 square feet of offices, 15,000 square feet of retail and underground parking. Connecticut-based architect Pickard Chilton will design the project, and Dallas’ HKS will be the architect of record.
The 2401 McKinney tower will have landscaped plazas on the street and multiple terraces overlooking Uptown. Truluck’s will have a new restaurant on the ground floor of the building. Crow Co. plans to start construction on the tower early next year with an opening in mid-2023. The development still must get approval from Dallas’ planning commission and city council. It’s one of several new high-rises in the works for the area just north of downtown and one of the largest new Dallas developments announced during the pandemic.
