New reports have surfaced about a potential mixed-used project in the works for Dallas’ Harwood Street Historic District. According to the Dallas Morning News, Centurion American Development Group is working towards building a 6-story apartment and retail development just a block off Harwood and Jackson Streets, which would essentially bring 130 new residential units to the area, as well as 5,000 to 6,000 square feet of retail space on the building’s ground floor.
The proposed project hasn’t come without challenges, however, as the design of the building must satisfy historic district requirements and blend in seamlessly with other buildings and structures around Harwood Street, which date back all the way into the late 1800s.
Developers have received design approvals, though, so the new project appears to be one step closer to becoming reality. Plans also call for an underground parking garage with over 800 spaces, and once that’s finished towards the end of the year, construction should begin on the new building, which was designed by Dallas-based architect 5G Studio Collaborative.
Centurion American Development Group also just completed a $250 million development of the historic Statler Hotel.
