KDC to Develop Office Building at Burgeoning West Love Mixed-Use Development
DALLAS, TX KDC announces it has plans to develop a multi-story office building within the $200 million West Love mixed-use project near Dallas Love Field Airport.
"This is a great opportunity to be involved as a part of a project that is located in one of the prime areas of Dallas," said Bill Guthrey, KDC Senior Vice President. "West Love will be a vibrant and walkable mixed-use development near two of the biggest economic engines in North Texas - Dallas Love Field and the Medical District."
Located at 2345 W. Mockingbird Lane, KDC's new 150,000-square-foot office building will include structured parking along with views of Love Field and downtown Dallas.
The office building is a key element in the mixed-use plan for West Love, located on 37 acres on Mockingbird Ln. between Maple Avenue and Forest Park Road in the fast-growing Love Field district.
In addition to the office building, West Love's initial phase includes two Starwood hotels, 368 luxury apartment homes and 65,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. A later phase will include an additional 750 apartments. West Love's "Main Street" lined with retail and restaurants will stretch along Mockingbird Lane. "We are immensely pleased to have one of the premier office developers in Dallas join our project," said Jorge Ramirez, Partner of Highridge Partners, developer of West Love. "In the coming year, West Love will be an inviting gathering place for the surrounding neighborhoods, our residents, tenants, and hotel guests and an attractive destination for the thousands of people who work at Love Field and the Medical District."
West Love will be a pedestrian-friendly community with extensive landscape and hardscape treatments within its public spaces and common grounds.
Dallas City Council Member District 2, Adam Medrano welcomed the news noting, "West Love is the gateway to Love Field and is bringing essential housing, office space, hotel rooms and retail andrestaurant options to an outstanding area of Dallas."
