Earlier this month, Austin-based Endeavor Real Estate Group received a much needed vote of confidence for its proposed mixed-use project in Uptown.

At the northeast corner of McKinney Avenue and Boll Street, Endeavor has proposed a 19-story mixed-use tower that would include 290 apartments, 60,000 square feet of office space, 16,500 square feet of retail and restaurant space and multiple levels of underground parking.

The tower’s height would not exceed 240 feet, according to plans, and a portion of the apartments would be reserved for individuals and families making below the area median income. Dallas’s City Plan Commission approved the latest plans for the project on March 4.

Endeavor purchased the property at McKinney and Boll in 2019 and has been working on its development plan with the neighborhood ever since. Jamil Alam, managing principal of Endeavor Real Estate Group, told the Plan Commission that the company has gone through 15 different iterations of its Uptown plan. Now that the project has received a thumbs up from the Plan Commission, it will go before City Council for final approval.

Another major development is in the works just down the street. Earlier this month, Trammell Crow Company received its final approval from City Council to move ahead with a 29-story mixed-use tower at 2401 McKinney Avenue. The project will include 698,000 square feet of office space, a new 10,829-square-foot home for Truluck’s, a 12,000-square-foot health club and 5,000 square feet for a future bank, restaurant or retail user. It is not known when Trammell Crow plans to break ground on the project.
