Dallas/Fort Worth Skyline sees Drastic Changes


Living in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, cranes are a common site in the skyline.  However, according to the Dallas Business Journal, four areas will see more activity and changes than the rest of the area.  

Downtown Dallas is set to see more scenery-changing projects breaking ground as well as the continuation of construction projects already underway.  The AMLI Fountain Place apartment building will be the tallest skyscraper built downtown since 1987.  It will have 45 stories and 367 apartment units.  Down the street on Ross Avenue, the Hall Arts Residences will open next year with 28 stories and 48 luxury condo units with starting prices over $1 million. 

Even more residential units will be built in the Arts District by next summer.  The high-rise, Atelier, will be 41 stories with 364 apartment units as well as 26,000 square feet of amenity space and 15,000 square feet of ground-floor retail.

On the eastern side of downtown, a mixed-use development will have 336 apartment units, 200,000 square feet of office space and 25,000 square feet of street-level retail.  This project is expected to be completed in 2021.

The largest development waiting to break ground in downtown Dallas is the $1 billion mixed-use development called the Field Street District.  Its features include 1.2 million square feet of office space, a hotel, two residential towers with 600 units between them and 30,000 to 40,000 square feet of amenity and retail space. 

Across the highway from downtown Dallas is the Uptown area.  This area is experiencing even more high-rise developments including the new 255-room Marriott Uptown hotel. 

A little west of downtown Dallas the city of Arlington is seeing more big changes.  There the new Texas Rangers’ ballpark, Globe Life Field, will open with a capacity of 40,300.  It will feature a retractable roof and other sparkling amenities.  Arlington will see even more growth when the ground breaks for the next phase of Texas Live! an $810 million project.

Frisco, north of Dallas, is set to see more construction of multifamily developments.  Currently there are nine apartments under construction.  Frisco is also a hot office market and is set to see even more office space break ground next year.
