DART’s planning committee this week will get an update on a developer’s vision for a huge high-rise complex at the transit agency’s Mockingbird Station.
Developer Trammell Crow Co. has been working with DART since early this year to craft a plan to construct an underground parking garage and residential and commercial towers on surface parking lots at Mockingbird Station.
The project would include two 20-story residential buildings with 682 units and 19,000 square feet of retail space on the site just east of North Central Expressway.
“Trammell Crow Co. is working in conjunction with DART as the master developer on this transit-oriented development site, which is anticipated to feature a mixed-use project containing office, retail, hotel and residential, which will be developed under Trammell Crow Co.’s residential subsidiary, High Street Residential,” Joel Behrens, Trammell Crow principal and head of High Street Residential’s Dallas-Fort Worth office, said in a email.
Almost 760,000 square feet of buildings would be constructed on land where cars now park for DART’s adjoining station.
To build the transit-oriented development, the developer will have to construct an underground parking garage adjacent to the station plus additional parking in the new buildings.
“Our goal is to create a vibrant site that can stand the test of time and provide a transit-oriented development encompassing live, work, and play,” planners for the project say in a presentation to DART.
