Uptown has established itself as the premier location to call home in downtown Dallas, as upscale restaurants, swanky boutique shops, and an animated nightlife scene fills out the neighborhood’s landscape. But among all the culture and commerce that defines Uptown’s trendy reputation is also some of the hottest real estate you’ll find in all of downtown, which continues to attract home buyers and renters of all demographics.
In recent weeks, new construction residential projects have certainly dominated the headlines, but earlier this month, construction crews finally broke ground on the project that really aims to really shape Uptown’s future and solidify its long-term growth potential.
Located at 2021 McKinney Avenue is the impending home of the soaring McKinney and Olive high-rise—a 20-story structure that will eventually be the tallest building just north of downtown Dallas once complete. Unlike the majority of new development in Uptown however, McKinney and Olive will be exclusively commercial and retail space that will enevitably bring more shopping and dining to the area, as well as the one thing this thriving downtown Dallas neighborhood is lacking—offices.
It’s been reported that the new McKinney and Olive project will cost an estimated $200 million, the most expensive Uptown project to-date, but given the 3.1 acre site is one of the last remaining vacant lots in the entire neighborhood, what better way to make use of the space than to construct the area’s largest building?
In case you’re wondering who’s behind McKinney and Olive's mesmerizing design, Cesar Pelli is the primary architect of the project, who’s other famed works include the World Financial Center in New York City, the Petronas Towers in Malaysia, and the International Finance Centre in Hong Kong.
