Masterplan, a company that provides consultation services to businesses, individuals and government agencies in matters relating to land use, is pleased to announce it recently won a pair of cases related to zoning in Dallas, TX.
The applicant for the first case was the Union Uptown Dallas, LLC, represented by Santos Martinez of Masterplan. Union Uptown requested an amendment to Planned Development Subdistrict No. 110 within Planned Development District No. 193, the Oak Lawn Special Purpose District. The goal was to amend the sign regulations to accommodate brand new signage for a grocery store (a Tom Thumb franchise) in the lower level of the development. That application was approved.
“We were pleased to have our application approved to allow Union Uptown Dallas, LLC to move forward expeditiously with their project,” said Martinez.
The second case featured an application submitted by the Dallas Independent School District, represented by Karl A. Krawley of Masterplan. The DISD applied for a new subarea on the property zoned Subarea 4 within Planned Development District No. 298, the Bryan Area Special Purpose District with Historic Overlay H/77 for the Fanning Elementary School.
The purpose of the request was to create a brand new subarea that would allow for reduced parking requirements, which would in turn accommodate the recent conversion from an elementary school to a high school, as well as the proposed expansion of the existing school building. Thenew subarea will be subject to landscape and development plans. The request was approved.
“We were glad to be able to consult with the Dallas Independent School District for what promises to be an outstanding and beneficial project for children and parents in the area,” said Krawley.
