Developers Intend to Turn Old Dallas High School Into a Residential Development
|The site in question|
The docs filed with Landmark aren't specific about Wynne/Jackson's redevelopment plans, but there is a hint contained therein: Spaces asking about retail and office square footage are left blank, but the one concerning residential square footage is filled out: "TBD." And sources familiar with the deal say that the developers are planning on filling the property with other residential components that aren't part of the Landmark docs; after all, all Landmark's concerned with is the building itself (and the 25 feet surrounding it), not the rest of the five-acre property at Pearl and Bryan. But, again, we'll have to wait till tomorrow night to see the council briefing docs, which will contain conceptual renderings. Somebody got me a going-away present.
Karl Zavitkovsky, head of the city's Office of Economic Development, wants to wait till those docs are made public tomorrow night before commenting on what specifically Wynne/Jackson has in mind. All he'll say on the subject is this, for now: "We are very happy to consider a project on this site after so many years with a high-quality development partner."
