The Park District is a new development planned for a 3-acre tract just north of Klyde Warren Park between Pearl and Olive streets.

Trammell Crow Company announced plans today for two separate towers on the land occupied by a Chase motor bank next to Klyde Warren Park. The development, a joint venture with MetLife, will form the self-described Park District, with structures designed by Dallas’ own HKS Architects. The Park District will include 916,000 square feet of space, including a Class A office tower, a luxury residential tower, ground-floor retail, below-grade parking, and a plaza designed by the same landscape architect that dreamed up Klyde Warren Park. All of this will sit on three acres between Pearl and Olive Streets just north of the park, and construction should start this year.

It’s a development that’s been in the works for a few years, according to MetLife’s Dallas real estate director Kurt Day.

“This project began almost ten years ago when we bought a small well-located parcel of land in Uptown,” Day said. “Uptown’s evolution and the effects of Klyde Warren Park over the last few years have been exciting, and we think Park District will raise the bar to the benefit of Uptown residents and workers.”

What an exceptional opportunity to live in one of these gorgeous modern townhomes designed by Lionel Morrison. The architect, which has a fondness for minimalistic modern design that pairs metal and natural materials seamlessly, has designed amazing Dallas homes and landmarks, including this light and bright mansion on Northaven Road, One Arts Plaza, and many more.

We’ve featured one of these incredible Travis Street townhomes before as a Monday Morning Millionaire, and today’s Lease of the Week is just as fabulous as that home, only it doesn’t have a rooftop deck. Still, it’s a beautiful home in an amazing location with everything your modern-loving heart desires. Located at 4337 Travis Street, you can rent this gorgeous concrete, glass, and steel beauty marketed by Rogers Healy himself for $9,000 a month.
