Apartment, retail project to replace vacant shopping center next to Dallas' Medical District rail station
Shorter apartment buildings would be constructed along Hudnall Drive.
One of the area's busiest luxury apartment builders is looking at construction of a transit-oriented development in Dallas' medical district.
StreetLights Residential is working on a more than 400-unit apartment and shopping center development across the street from the Inwood/Love Field DART rail station off Maple Avenue.
The planned development would occupy more than 4 acres at Denton and Hudnall drives just east of Maple.
The property is now occupied by a vacant strip shopping center. Older apartments on the south end of the block along Hudnall were previously demolished.
StreetLights and the property owner have filed plans with the Dallas Plan Commission showing a complex of three- to six-story buildings that house rental units and a grocery-anchored retail center.
Looney Ricks Kiss Architects designed the project.
The taller buildings would face the DART rail station and three-story buildings would adjoin residential areas to the south and east, according to the filing with the plan commission.
"The goal of the filing is to adjust the current fragmented zoning to allow for a true transit-oriented development with a mix of uses including a grocery store, multi-family housing, and neighborhood serving retail," a spokeswoman for StreetLights said in an email.
The vacant shopping center previously housed Elliott's Hardware and the popular Herrera's Café.
A block away on Maple Avenue, developers have built several large rental projects.
