Huge skyscraper project north of downtown Dallas gets approval

Plans for a new skyscraper development on the north edge of downtown Dallas have gotten approval from city planners.

Dallas’ Hunt Realty’s 11-acre Field Street project will include office, residential and hotel towers and retail space just north of Woodall Rodgers Freeway. Plans call for the high-rises to surround a lush central park.

The mixed-use project could include buildings taller than 80 stories.

Dallas’ city plan commission gave unanimous approval for the development at its last meeting, and the City Council still must give final acceptance of zoning changes for the project.

The towers and park would replace the Northend Apartments — built in 1997 — which predate the building boom in the area.

Hunt Realty has owned the site for more than two decades.

“We are sincerely appreciative of the support for our project from the planning committee, neighbors and city staff,” said Colin Fitzgibbons, president of Hunt Realty Investments. “It was a truly collaborative process and the overall project has improved significantly as a result.

“This is great timing too as the city of Dallas continues to gain momentum from corporate relocations, retail growth and increasing hotel occupancy.”

The new development is planned as a bridge between Uptown and Victory Park. It’s one of three major high-rise projects in the works for that area of Dallas.

Developer Hillwood Urban is planning a 38-story office high-rise that would sit on the south side of Woodall Rodgers Freeway at the entrance to downtown.

And Kaizen Development Partners and Woods Capital are working on plans for their 6-acre Field Street District, a two-block mixed-use project planned on Woodall Rodgers Freeway.
