Foodie Mecca Coming to Dallas

There's 50k SF of retail and restaurant space that needs filling atSylvan|Thirty (1818 Sylvan). While we'd love to see a 50k SF Popeye's Chicken, Retail Street Advisors has a more varied approach. (And that's why our stomach can't get hired anywhere.)

Here's Retail Street Advisers partner Zac Porter showing off his car collection. (Or the lot outside his Highland Park Village office.) Owner Oaxaca Interests gave RSA the leasing nod just a few weeks ago. Zac tells us the boutique real estate firm plans to find tenants to create a culinary and lifestyle mecca with an all-day appeal. Already on board is a Soba Noodle concept by Teiichi Sakurai—the owner of Tei Ann in One Arts Plaza, and Sharon Hage, formerly of York Street, is consulting on a restaurant concept. Cox Market Farms and Matador Meat Market should open by Q4. Also coming is Sync Yoga. Zac says the assignment has allowed him to reconnect with a fellow UT alum and classmate, Oaxaca Interests prez Brent Jackson.

Sylvan|Thirty, at Sylvan and Fort Worth avenues, is being designed by Lake Flato, architects known for the redevelopment of the Pearl Brewery project in San Antonio as well as the design of the Hotel San Jacinto on South Congress in Austin. Zac says all of the retailwill be delivered this fall and spring. The grocery store and the meat market will open first in the fall and the restaurants and remaining retail will follow at a pace of one or two a month going into the spring. Zac and colleague Helen Hill will handle leasing.
