As reported here back in June, Weirs has major plans for its Knox Street Store. DMN is reporting that a 12 story building is planned with emphasis that the 100+ year old Highland Park Soda Fountain will remain on the corner. Plans call for 50,000 feet of retail space and a 6 story, sub level parking garage. It also sounds like Weirs will face Travis creating more retail frontage availability on Knox Street.
We will continue to update as more information becomes available.
Towers is reporting that a preliminary plat was approved for Travis Block Holding Company LLC to consolidate 14 lots into a 2.25 acre tract. It notably does not include Cafe Madrid. This is a huge piece of property and we’ll keep updating with new information as it becomes available.
As we’ve been reporting for ages, restoration hardware is indeed planning a major, major project….51,000 sq ft of retail, a hotel, etc…
And if that wasn’t enough, another apartment building replacing the crumbling, primer gray apartments between Armstrong and Oliver on Cole Ave.
Candace Evans broke the info from attending the Oak Lawn Committee meeting where these proposals were presented.
Read her article and see the pictures.
DMN is reporting that Weirs plans to close both their Knox street store and Buena Vista warehouse/outlet on July 8 to begin redevelopment plans. It’s somewhat confusing since Weirs has also been quoted as saying that the Knox Street redevelopment was still a couple of years out. Either way, we are excited to see what they are planning!
As reported here August of 2016, the chateau condos are going away…and hopefully that rv parked there is going to the dump as well when they demolish the building.
A new trinsic apartment building very similar to Knox Heights will be built there starting as soon as August.
