Stoneleigh Companies’ luxury high-rise apartment tower, One Uptown, has topped out at 2619 McKinney Ave. and the 20-story mixed-use structure is slated to open in the fall. The development includes 198 luxury apartments, 18,800 square feet of restaurant space and a 480-car underground parking garage.
Rick Cavenaugh, CEO of Stoneleigh Companies tells GlobeSt.com: “Considering the premier location of our project, we feel it’s appropriate to brand the iconic tower in accordance with our address in the heart of Uptown. We have seen what a remarkable and inclusive community Uptown is and we are proud to be a new neighbor. We want our identity to reflect that sentiment and commitment to the city of Dallas.”
Tower amenities include a second-floor private fitness studio overlooking McKinney Avenue, Café One lounge, spacious and fully appointed modern units from studios to three bedrooms with floor-to-ceiling glass, and three floors of penthouse units with 11- to 12-foot ceilings. The building is capped off with a 9,000-square-foot rooftop and sky lounge with rooftop pool, relaxation zone with fire pit, demonstration kitchen, cabanas and entertainment room with unobstructed views of the Dallas skyline.
Lifestyle amenities at One Uptown include the Fogo de Chão Churrascaria, offering a distinctive and authentic Brazilian dining experience and cuisine delivered by gaucho chefs, as one of its premiere restaurants. The additional restaurant is Style and Grace affiliated with the new Fat Rabbit across the street on McKinney Avenue. Style & Grace will be a two-story restaurant with a patio bar, lounge and a second floor pool bar. This will feature Dallas’ first structural glass-bottom pool located directly over the building’s porte cochere main entry and valet parking drop-off.
Stoneleigh Companies, based in Barrington IL, teamed up with Dallas-based USA Infrastructure Investments LP to develop One Uptown. The project team includes Humphreys & Partners as the architect of record and Hunt Construction Group as the general contractor. Bank of America is the construction lender for One Uptown and SunGate Capital Funding 2 is the institutional equity partner. The all-glass building was designed by Dallas architect Phil Shepard.
