All ABOARD S ince the development was first announced in 2019, The Terminal at Katy Trail has taken on an almost mythical air. The plot of land at Fitzhugh Avenue and Buena Vista Street sat quiet for some time (the luxury mixed-use project was originally slated to open in 2021), with nothing but a couple of glorious renderings to keep the dream alive. Then, as buildings are wont to do, the rendered image seemed to spring to life overnight, as did the buzz around the tenants Dallas would find beyond its grand, glass-encased arches. Of course, the years that felt quiet were actually quite eventful for The Terminal team, Laurie Sands Harrison of The Rosewood Corporation and Capitol Peak Ventures' husband-and-wife duo Blake Shipp and Lindsay Bayer Shipp, who saw the real estate opportunity as a true community development project. They sat in countless living rooms gathering honest feedback, all while drafting plans to bury power lines, enhance the landscape of the area, and put development standards in place for the surrounding parcels that the partnership owns. The project spent five years in the design phase with Austin architect Michael Hsu (Uchi, Uchiko, Hotel Ella, Line Austin Hotel, Domain 5, Canopy, South Congress Hotel, and others), who incorporated community feedback as he worked on The Terminal. "When we went to City Council, we had unanimous support," Blake says. "We wanted everyone in the neighborhood to feel like they had their fingerprint on this." The building is essentially split into two parts. On top, notable designers are quietly working with buyers to craft The Terminal's 16 luxury residences (starting at $3 million). As for the base, the PaperCity team was invited to tour the space mid-construction and discover which carefully picked tenants will be executing their vision beyond the tall windows. "We had a lot of interest from national brands, but we wanted the tenants to feel more localized," Blake says. The result is a mix of lesser-known retailers and locally owned restaurant concepts, but the focus of The Terminal's public areas is largely on wellness, with unique, holistic offerings that fully embrace the adjoining Katy Trail. O2 ASPEN A fixture of the tony mountain town for nearly two decades, this is the first O2 location outside of Aspen. Opening in late 2023, O2 Dallas will offer the same caliber of classes — infrared power yoga, reformer Pilates, sculpt, meditation, and more — and a retail section of high-end activewear. One treatment room is a partnership between O2 and New York-based Knockout Beauty offering micro-current facials. ALIVE AND WELL T h e A u s t i n - b a s e d concept Alive and Well, founded by husband- and-wife team Liz and Michael Swail (whose family runs Peoples RX Pharmacy), will open a second location at The Terminal in early 2024. Another wellness-minded multitasker, Alive and Well, will take over most of the building's second floor with a compounding pharmacy, a functional m e d i c i n e c l i n i c , integrative wellness center, and treatment rooms for massages, facials, acupuncture, and more. LE PASSAGE AND ROSE CAFÉ Both food and beverage concepts at the base of The Terminal come from Travis Street Hospitality's Stephan Courseau (Le Bilboquet, Knox Bistro, Georgie) and chef partner Bruno Davaillon (Knox Bistro, Bullion). Le PasSage is a French- Asian fusion concept with a design inspired by the Orient Express, and the more casual Rose Café is a breakfast, lunch, and dinner spot. By Caitlin Clark. The luxurious Terminal development brings a world of unique wellness to Katy Trail with concepts from Aspen, Austin, and beyond. The Terminal at Katy Trail Pilates at O2 Dallas 66
