By Camelia Bulea, Associate Editor
Harwood International will soon break ground on a majdeor development at Oak Lawn Avenue and Dragon Street, in the growing Design District neighborhood. The Dallas-based developer plans to build a high-end project that will feature 46,000 square feet of restaurant and shopping space on the ground level, with 224 apartments on top.
Dubbed District 1444: The Design Village, the urban-style development will be built on a site that currently houses an old showroom building. The west side of the showroom complex will be demolished to make way for the new buildings, while the rest of the old building will be used for a second phase, reported The Dallas Morning News.
The five-story project will also feature a pool deck lounge with cabanas, a fitness center, a game room, fire pits and gardens. Residents will be able to enjoy a wide array of cafes and restaurants on the ground floor, according to the Dallas Business Journal.
The northwest area of downtown Dallas has been attracting a large number of developers in the past six years, due to the high demand for rental units. One of the most famous residential projects in the Dallas Design District is 1400 Hi Line, a 24-story tower featuring 314 luxury apartments. The glass tower project opened half leased in the summer of 2012, as reported by Multi-Housing News.
One of the big players in the booming Uptown market, Harwood International also built the 31-story, 156-unit Azure condo tower, considered to be the tallest condominium residence tower in Uptown.
