Demolition Complete, Design District Office Building Breaking Ground Soon

Demolition has been completed at a property in the Design District, where an office and showroom building called Design 38 will soon break ground.

Design 38 will break ground this summer, developer BH3 said in a May press release announcing the start of demolition.

The nine-story project will include 90,000-square-feet of retail, showroom and office, with 25-foot ceilings on ground level and 14-foot ceilings on floors 2 through 9.

Records show that a construction permit was applied for in December 2020 and is nearing approval, with KVC the contractor.

BH3 is the developer, with Sieger Suarez the architect.

On the same block, a 15-story, 180,000-square-foot office called The Ursa is planned by the developer behind the Design District, with  demolition permit now pending.

A block away at 70 NE 39th Street, developer Thor filed plans on June 23 for a 19-story building with office, retail. and a private club, designed by architect Oppenheim.

Very nice! The design district needed this. This plus the other office building and maybe an apartment or two in the Design district would be huge! Maybe another parking garage as well to help the area

The street level is nothing but windows, allowing whatever tenant the flexibility to use the street however they want.

“allowing whatever tenant the flexibility to use the street however they want”

Which means, why use the trash receptacle when you can throw the trash right out on the streets!

Looks like a value engineered version of the ursa

No, value engineered would be completely squared off and the windows reduced in size. This proposal looks solid.

I get that it’s technically the DD but this will feel more like midtown than the DD because of the corner it sits on

I stand corrected, it’s the DD. I thought it was one block south on 37th, my mistake

Great project…. If this was in little Havana. Just not up to Design District standards. Not good enough for that area. Looks dated.

What do you want, an avant-garde piece of twisted metal or concrete sticking out of it? It’s a clean building fitting for the area and will age well. Conservative, but not a boring box.
