Erdos Closing; Room & Board Opening

Erdos home furnishing store is closing its Knox store.

As KnoxDallas.org reported back in December, Room & Board is opening in the space formerly occupied by DWR and Nest along McKinney Ave.  (I’m just saying…you heard it here first.)

From today’s DMN article about Room & Board:  “The Minneapolis-based furniture retailer is combining two spaces on McKinney Ave., just south of Knox, formerly occupied Nest and Design Within Reach.”

Knox Neighborhood Updates

Restoration Hardware

As reported last May, there is reason to suspect that a major announcement is forthcoming regarding the space that Restoration Hardware now occupies.  A massive Restoration Hardware is not my first choice, but is very likely.

Atlanta_Store

On Monday, core samples were taken in the parking lot in front and behind RH as well as in front of Mecox.  I have a feeling we’re about to get a press release or some concrete information.

LeBilboquet’s Oyster Bar Concept

As reported here last July, an oyster bar concept will be opening in this space in May backed by the same group that opened the popular, LeBilboquet on Travis Street.  Based on the amount of recent activity, I expect that May is still the target date for an opening.

Aesop Skincare

Aesop Skincare will be opening a store within the Knox Neighborhood.  Perhaps one of the new retail spaces created on Knox from the old Chili’s space?

Popular Australian skincare brand, Aēsop is opening its second Dallas store (Knox Aēsop) in late 2017.

“As we establish an Aesop presence in Dallas, Texas, it is a pleasure to immerse ourselves in site and setting – investigating the unique characteristics that add flavor to the vibrant Knox-Henderson district, and the city as a whole.  For our part, we felt immediately at home amid Knox-Henderson’s neighborly atmosphere, and sheltered on its tree-lined boulevards. One of the few walkable areas of the city, the district also lies astride the sylvan Katy Trail for much-needed respite from concrete confines.  It will be a pleasure to welcome you to our first Dallas space soon; trained consultants will be pleased to offer a personalized skin care consultation and to prescribe formulations and samples best suited to your individual needs.”

Adelmos

I don’t know exactly what the future of this space holds, but I expect some changes soon. This group was there the other day discussing how they intended to modify the space.  I have to assume this modification is in preparation for a new tenant.

Bardot Place

This project again appears to be at a standstill.  I know that OSHA has been onsite here and shut things down, and I know that they’ve also had challenges with the city.  I am optimistic that this project will be completed and will not sit half finished for years as the owners battle with city hall.

Apartment Buildings…

I’ll post soon on apartment building with pictures and progress reports.  All are looking excellent…The Katy, The McKenzie, and Knox Heights are all coming along and will be assets to the Knox neighborhood.
