Construction has been underway since July on the One Uptown apartment tower on McKinney Avenue.

The luxury apartment tower is being built on the site of the old Hard Rock Café at McKinney and Routh Street.

The 20-story project will have 198 luxury apartments and 18,000 square feet of retail when it starts opening at the end of the year. There’s also going to be a rooftop pool.

Dallas investor and developer Paul Cheng and Stoneleigh Cos. are building the high-rise.

A new architect’s rendering shows what the curvaceous tower will look like at night with colored LED lighting.

“We should pour the ninth floor Wednesday,” said Stoneleigh president Rick Cavenaugh. “Windows start going in next week.

“The curvilinear nature of the building is really starting to be evident in the structure.”

Phil Shepard and Humphreys & Partners designed the building. And Hunt Construction Group is the general contractor.

Cheng and Cavenaugh are also working on a mixed-use project in Frisco that includes a farmers market, apartments, office and retail space.
