Another high-rise is on the way on Uptown’s booming McKinney Avenue.

Developers have received the go-ahead to build an 18-story apartment tower at McKinney and Boll Street. The rental project would be built on the site of the Idle Rich Pub.

“The building will have a restaurant on the ground floor and a fitness center on the second floor,” said Dallas Cothrum of Masterplan Consultants, which worked with the developers to get planning approval. “All the parking is underground and there is no bar.
