Dallas-based Hunt Construction Group has been retained by investment group Stoneleigh Companies of Illinois to build a posh 20-floor residential and retail building at the corner of McKinney Avenue and Routh Street in Uptown. Construction is scheduled to begin by June and the first stage will be digging 65 feet deep to lay the foundation for a 480-vehicle parking garage. The tower will include 30,000 square feet of restaurant and retail space and 200 high-end luxury apartments upon the one-acre site. The land has been dormant for several years after the harsh razing of the historic building that housed the Hard Rock Cafe for a decade; across the street is the current construction of the new Whole Foods.
