The Good E – In Process

Today, the Deep Ellum neighborhood is the largest entertainment district in Dallas and is home to endless restaurants, music venues, and shops. In early 2020, a goal was set by Westdale Real Estate & Investment Management to add a useful and functional space to the area, while still preserving its historic beauty. With this in mind, the idea for the The Good E blossomed. Six existing Deep Ellum buildings, totaling 52,000 square feet, have been completely enhanced and repurposed to offer restaurant and retail space on the ground floor and office space on the second level. 

KSC teamed up with Andres Construction Services and Droese Raney Architecture to remodel the existing buildings – implementing all new underground utilities, roofs, and interior shell space. We provided 3D laser scanning to accurately measure the structure and create the final aluminum composite material product with CNC machining. From there, we also fabricated and installed custom panels for the beam wraps and elevations. As desired, the historic exteriors of the buildings were preserved and left unchanged.

Overall, KSC was able to assist in developing a project plan that coincided with Westdale’s timeline and vision. In a world where architects and builders often seek to knock down and rebuild, KSC values being part of preserving both Dallas and Deep Ellum’s history of art, music, culture, and architecture.
