In recent weeks, our spring exploration of notable Big D retail developments has taken us to NorthPark Center and Highland Park Village. Today, we’ll continue our voyage of discovery and dish with a trip to Knox-Henderson.
Over the course of the last year, the centrally located restaurant and shopping district at I-75 and Knox Street/Henderson Avenue has expanded its network to add impressive retailers, including Kate Spade and Lululemon Athletica. They join existing longtime home décor draws, such as Restoration Hardware, Crate & Barrel, and Z Gallerie, as well as tech giant, Apple. With much growth predicted, this area is establishing a reputation as a go-to hub for many local residents – and a getaway from the norm for others. Read on for a recent notable debut and insight into the future of Knox-Henderson.
3205 Knox Street, between Lululemon Athletica and Betty Lou
New York-based retailer Steven Alan has planted roots in one of Dallas’ prime shopping districts. Now boasting over 300 stores worldwide, the label started as a showroom for emerging designers, and has evolved into a go-to source for men’s and women’s casual wear. This represents the brand’s first store in Texas.
Steve Alan’s modern 1,875 square foot space on Knox Street is constructed of concrete, brick, and wood. With wall-to-wall finds from Filson, Sea, and Laurence Dolige, the retailer sticks close to its foundation by housing independent and emerging designer labels along with its in-house collection. This new addition to the Knox-Henderson family is worth a visit.
Lincoln Knox Development
More is in store for both retail and residential development in this quickly growing area. Construction began on the Lincoln Knox residences in February of this year, scheduled for completion in September 2015, located at 4501 Cole Avenue (between Knox Street and Armstrong Avenue).
The project, according to contractor Hill & Wilkinson, is budgeted at $38.6 million, and will include a six-story set of 165 luxury apartment units sitting atop retail space. While specific details on those retailers have yet to be revealed, area residents can expect a Trader Joe’s grocery store (a huge draw in its own right). We will keep our ears open for any further information on this exciting new development.
