What’s going on here? From behind a window across W. Dallas, a reader sends this photo and wants to know. According to a construction manager on site, the work to this point has involved utility excavation for what will be, he says, “Class A apartments.”
The former grassy knoll lying west of the Magnolia Cemetery on Montrose Blvd. and east of the Finger apartments under construction behind the Whole Foods on Waugh was owned by AIG until 2012, when Dallas developers JLB Partners purchased it. City records show that JLB owns almost 3 acres here.
Calls to JLB for more information about the development haven’t been returned. But, for the sake of comparison, the developers do have another complex in Houston: The Ava, south of Westheimer near Hillcroft.
