A proposal that would transform a leading entryway to the Bishop Arts District in north Oak Cliff was offered for public comment Friday at City Hall.

Architects for Dallas-based Alamo Manhattan presented plans for redeveloping property near Zang Boulevard and Davis Street to the city’s Urban Design Peer Review Panel.

The company wants to build five-story buildings, including apartments, restaurants and retail on three blocks of land near the city’s future streetcar stop.

And it has asked the city for $11 million in future tax-increment financing reimbursements to help pay for an estimated $55 million project.
