The new Silver Line commuter rail project that DART is building from DFW International Airport to Plano is giving developers new opportunities. The Town of Addison is seeking a “master developer” to build on an 18-acre site surrounding its planned Silver Line – formerly Cotton Belt – rail station. The city has hired a commercial property firm, Cushman & Wakefield, to solicit development proposals for the property which is just west of the Dallas North Tollway near the Addison Circle mixed-use development. Addison officials are hoping that the property will be used for a transit-oriented development that could be valued at a half-billion dollars. “We’re pleased to have been selected by Addison to find a highly-qualified, forward-thinking mixed-use master developer who can build out the site to its full potential,” Cushman & Wakefield’s Chris Harden said in a statement. “The unparalleled central location, access to transit, major employment, and proximity to high-traffic areas like Belt Line Road, a nationally-known hotspot for restaurants, and the exceptional quality of life the Town of Addison affords to make this a prime investment opportunity.” Click to read more at www.masstransitmag.com.
