Dallas (Dallas County)–A major Austin developer looks to enter the Dallas market in a big way, as it plans to add to a growing landscape of high-rises in Uptown.
Endeavor Real Estate Group has begun to unveil preliminary plans to redevelop a half-block tract at McKinney Avenue and Boll Street.
Endeavor representatives gave a presentation regarding their project, titled McKinney & Boll, to the Oak Lawn Committee, a neighborhood group, on Aug. 6.
The 19-story building would include 290 residential units, 15,000 square feet of ground-level retail/dining space, 59,800 square feet of second- and third-story office space, and a 5,500-square-foot rooftop pool deck and lounge. There also would be an underground five-level parking garage.

According to the project’s landscape plan, retail space would front both McKinney and Boll, and lobbies leading into the residential and office areas will face Boll.
Endeavor is proposing to widen the sidewalks on McKinney and Boll, and plant trees on those widened sidewalks along the project site. Dallas-based firm HKS is handling the architectural design.
The angled project site presently includes two small commercial buildings and a house-turned-law firm office that collectively take up half a block in Uptown. One commercial building has been housing businesses such as Jake’s Hamburgers, a State Farm office and a dental practice.
Endeavor has not provided a construction schedule or cost.
This would be the first Dallas project for Endeavor, which has done most of its work around the Austin area and is renowned for developments such as The Domain and the Bowie mixed-use complex.
Endeavor’s Uptown Dallas development would tower over the Post Abbey apartment complex that shares space on the same block as Endeavor’s project site.
Other developers are making Uptown Dallas a hot spot for new multi-story construction. San Antonio developer Kairoi Residential has plans to build a 12-story residential tower on a 1-acre-plus tract at Maple Avenue and Mahon Street.
