Knox Park neighborhood group meeting

I want to let everyone know that on Wednesday, April 5 at 5:30 PM – 6:30 PM a neighborhood group is meeting at Kozy Kitchen.  If I understand correctly, there is interest in creating a neighborhood council.  This is not sponsored by Knox Dallas, but we support any neighborhood collaborations or associations that promote our neighborhood!

Wild About Harry’s

A great feature about one of our local favorites.  It will be very interesting to see the new addition to Bardot Place and what the future is for our neighborhood custard and dog shop.   I speculate that Bardot’s upscale vision does not include our beloved Harry’s.  I’m very nervous as I see the transformation of that strip of retail.

An Interesting DMN article about demand for walkable neighborhoods

Haven’t posted in a while, but I came across this article about increased demand for walkable neighborhood living and the premium people are willing to pay.

We are hoping to see Southern Land Co. break ground on their highrise on Oliver Street within the next couple of months.  Demand for luxury apartments has continued to absorb inventory so it looks like this project will move forward.

Similarly, the McKenzie is starting to have quite a presence when traveling north on McKinney Avenue near Knox.
