Along with residential units, the building will feature approximately 13,000 square feet of ground floor retail that will anchored by a new Café Express.
The building will be located across Bowen from the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority (MATA) trolley barn and headquarters. High Street Residential/Trammell Crow Company is dedicating the southwest corner of the ground floor to house a new trolley barn, MATA museum and office space. Additionally, the development team is working with MATA to expand their fleet of trolley cars to accommodate the growth of trolley line to downtown Dallas.
“As we designed this project it was important to incorporate the rich history of the McKinney Avenue Trolley and support them as they celebrate their 25th year in operation,” said Joel Behrens, Senior Vice President of Trammell Crow Company’s Dallas-Fort Worth Business Unit and MATA Board Member. “We believe this is one of the most popular work, live, play areas in Uptown and we are also pleased to be partnering with MATA and providing them with the resources they need to expand their services.”
“Adding another trolley, barn space and a museum with leadership offices has been a goal of ours for years, but the opportunity to do it the right way has never presented itself,” said Phil Cobb, Founder of the McKinney Avenue Transit Authority. “This space adjacent to where we are currently headquartered is exactly what we needed to realize the vision and grow.”
