Toll Brothers’ Latest Plan for 2728 Welborn
Before even entering last night’s Oak Lawn Committee meeting I knew it was gonna be spark-able. See, I parked in back of the off-duty Dallas policewoman hired to keep the peace. We walked in together … my first armed escort (check that off the bucket list).
A typically packed agenda really revolved around a single issue … Toll Brothers’ plans for 2728 Welborn (yes, yes, two minutes were also spent on Reverchon Park’s baseball field turning 100). The site, south-ish and west-ish of Welborn and Congress, is just north of the Plaza high-rise condos. The Toll Brothers project is slated for rental units.
About a year ago, this project, destined to be a high-rise, was knocked down by neighborhood pearl-clutching to a squatty, lump of a building. Well, destiny won. A 21-story high-rise is now penned for the site that will include 271 units whose average size will be 938 square feet (63 larger than required). It will contain a mix of one- and two-bedroom units with a smattering of penthouses and nine street-level townhomes. Nearly a third will be two-bedroom units. So far, there are four penthouses, but that may increase as the interior floor plates are fleshed out and if the market tells them the larger units would be leasable.
