PCPA to design mixed-use development in Dallas

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (Dec. 13, 2011) —  Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects has been selected to design a major mixed-use development in the premier business and residential district of Dallas.

Crescent Real Estate Holdings LLC, the developer of the project, announced its plans Tuesday for the 3.1-acre site adjacent to the Ritz-Carlton in the Uptown district. Crescent called its selection of Pelli Clarke Pelli the first example of an internationally-acclaimed architect designing a commercial building in Dallas since the 1980s.

“Out of an elite group of 12 initial candidates, Pelli Clarke Pelli ultimately took the lead with a vision that will undoubtedly make this development the best mixed-use project in our region,” said John Goff, CEO of Crescent and Goff Capital Partners.

The 600,000-square-foot development will be designed to attain a LEED Gold rating and will include 400,000 square feet of office, 60,000 square feet of retail and 50 luxury residences, according to an early design. Amenities will include valet parking, outdoor plazas, a fitness center and a dual-feed power source. 

Located at McKinney Avenue and Olive Street, the project will anchor the southern end of Uptown, home to office, residential, retail and entertainment uses. Calling the neighborhood, “the most vibrant and pedestrian-oriented urban district in the state of Texas,” Cesar Pelli, Senior Principal of Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects, said the development would be designed to be inviting at the street level.

 “Dallas is a market that is respected for its innovation around the world, and we believe that its architecture should reflect that,” Pelli said.

Construction is expected to start in late 2012.
