Dallas apartment developer Streetlights Residential is planning to build this 20-story apartment tower on the former site of the Eye Excellence clinic at 4 Chelsea Blvd., backing up to the Southwest Fwy. just south of where it spits out the Downtown Spur. The company bought the property behind the Chelsea Market shopping center last September, tacking on an additional freeway-facing parcel. The rendering above shows the not-quite-final scheme from Dallas architects Gromatzky Dupree & Associates.
Chelsea Montrose will include 303 apartments; units on the top floor will be multi-story. It’ll abut the Main St. exit from U.S. 59, but all access will be from Chelsea Blvd., between Montrose and Travis St. — just west of a residential neighborhood west of Main. A source tells Swamplot demolition of the 6,233-sq.-ft. 1940 mansion on the site is scheduled to begin in the next month or 2. Construction of the building and its attached garage, which could take up to 2 1/2 years, would begin shortly thereafter.
Here’s a plat of the property, approved by the city planning department last summer:
At 20 stories and 250 ft. tall, the building should match the Museum Tower on Montrose Blvd., less than a quarter mile southwest of the site.
