About four years ago, investors and developers purchased a 4.5 acre stretch on Henderson with the hopes in giving the area a face lift. Dallas' Open Realty Advisors is partnered with the LA-based CIM group on this project and is currently asking the city of Dallas for zoning to construct a combination of retail, office space, and a community garden/park at Glencoe and Henderson.
Henderson is already a cool spot for retail, restaurants, and bars, but this new development will have more to offer, especially the underground parking that is currently in high demand. If you have ever driven on Henderson, you know that the parking situation is less than ideal. All the restaurants have valet parking , but you will have to pay, and the retail parking is very limited, so you end up having to walk long distances to your destination.
The buildings that will be constructed will be at a maximum of 3 stories high with two underground levels of parking. City planners and architects have decided to stay away from rental housing and bars in this new development. The area is already filled with plenty of housing and bars, so they are going to keep it to offices, retail, and restaurants. With bars like Henderson Tap House, Skellig, Eberhard (and many more), the need for a bunch of new bars is not there.
Ownership is trying to obtain the permits early this upcoming year so that construction may begin later in the year. This will truly be a great deal for the area, and will bring even more attention to the area.
