1900 Cedar Springs
An adaptive-reuse of an existing parking garage in the Uptown district of Dallas, the 1900 Cedar Springs project is an example of the numerous complexities that face new development in densely populated areas. The program calls for the addition of three levels of structured parking and a 180 unit residential tower to be constructed over the existing concrete parking garage. An under-utilized retail space will be expanded and renovated to an anticipated thriving new 9,500 square foot restaurant tenant and 1,500 square foot residential lobby. The new development will total approximately 195,000 square feet and 14 stories. The design team worked closely with the owner, developer, and contractor to determine project feasibility and to find economical solutions to the intricate interweaving of old and new.
Located at the intersection of Cedar Springs and Harwood, the project’s zoning restrictions and construction challenges best showcase GFF’s ability to lead our clients through city processes and complicated renovations to existing structures. Aesthetically, the design emphasizes the street as critical to the urban fabric of the city with a monumental tower that draws the pedestrian’s view toward the sky, culminating on a dynamic opening. An 11,000 square foot amenity deck visually connects the project to a larger urban context with dynamic views of downtown and west Dallas while ultimately bringing a greater quality of life to the resident who chooses to live in the city. The project is a victory for both our development partners and neighboring properties as it will bring new residents into a neighborhood that continues to establish itself as one of Dallas’s strongest pedestrian districts.
