Master planning and design of a retail center anchored by an upscale 138-room Aloft hotel, a division of Starwood Hotels and Resorts. Located at a significant entry point into Las Colinas, the center sits on seven acres at the southwest corner of State Highway 114 and O’Connor Boulevard with unrivaled proximity to Las Colinas Urban Center. The multi-purpose leisure opportunities span nearly 30,000 SF for restaurant and retail space, including a 5,000 bank pad site. All three retail buildings incorporate an innovative rain screen wood panel system imported from Spain. The material palette highlights a referential architectural vocabulary while staying in context with Las Colinas. The facades exude a warmth and vibrancy not typically seen in commercial projects in Dallas.
