Uptown tower changes its name; work underway at former Hard Rock site
The site where One Uptown is being built in the Uptown area of Dallas where the former Hard Rock Cafe stood. The bustling Uptown area can be seen up McKinney Avenue in the background.
One of Dallas' most highly anticipated luxury residential and retail towers will get a new name.
With construction well underway on the 20-story high-end tower on the former Hard Rock site at the northeast corner of McKinney Avenue and Routh Street, Stoneleigh PropertiesPresident Rick Cavenaugh has decided to rename the tower 'One Uptown' instead of 'One Dallas.'
The move better reflects the luxury tower's presence in the neighborhood, officials said. At completion, the tower will be one of the tallest and most high profile developments in Uptown.
Workers have begun digging out the underground parking garage for the 1-acre property, which is expected to be complete by mid-2016.
Cavenaugh says the hole will be twice as deep as the one Gables dug to build the parking garage beneath the Whole Foods-anchored developed kitty-corner to the site for One Uptown.
Hunt Construction is the general contractor on the project. Humphreys & Partners is the project architect.
