MILL VALLEY, CA (May 9, 2023) – Auberge Resorts Collection, the award-winning portfolio of one-of-a-kind luxury hotels, resorts and residences, has been selected by MSD Partners, Trammell Crow Company, Highland Park Village Associates, and The Retail Connection to manage The Knox, Auberge Resorts Collection and The Knox Residences, Auberge Resorts Collection, creating a new urban retreat in the heart of Dallas’ magnetic Knox Street neighborhood. Located along the Katy Trail, one of the city’s most iconic destinations, the boutique hotel and residences will anchor a four-acre luxury lifestyle development that includes curated retail and restaurants, design-forward luxury office and multifamily, and a new park connected to the trail. Set to open in 2026, The Knox, Auberge Resorts Collection will offer a one-of-a-kind urban experience with proximity to some of the best shopping and culinary destinations in the country.

Located in Dallas’ most vibrant and exciting neighborhood, The Knox, Auberge Resorts Collection is the city’s most interesting and desirable new address, situated in a district that promotes walkability, cultivated greenspace, a highly social atmosphere and is a gateway to Highland Park. The Knox will naturally enhance the neighborhood’s authentic charm and sophistication, offering a unique urban retreat in the Knox Street neighborhood and one of the most coveted destinations in Dallas.

“We are thrilled to expand our portfolio in Dallas’ most dynamic neighborhood – the historic Knox District – which continues to see tremendous growth and energy,” said Dan Friedkin, chairman, Auberge Resorts Collection. “Our partnership with ownership allows us to bring our one-of-a-kind Auberge experience to even more destinations in Texas. The hotel and residences will complement the destination with exciting locally driven food and beverage offerings, vibrant cultural experiences and curated health and wellness experiences.”

The Knox, Auberge Resorts Collection will feature 140 hotel rooms and suites, as well as 48 private, world-class luxury residences. An oasis of serenity in Dallas, residents will enjoy exclusive access to a private residential club with amenities including a bar and lounge, sunroom, fitness center and indoor pool, along with preferred access to Auberge hotel amenities, all just steps from everything the city has to offer. Hotel amenities will include a lively second floor restaurant, a series of spacious living rooms and outdoor lounges that will create a drinking and dining destination unlike anything else in Dallas, expansive event spaces, a vibrant outdoor pool bar, fitness center, spa and movement studio.

Innovative while staying true to the area’s historic roots, The Knox, Auberge Resorts Collection was designed in connection with the vibrancy and celebrated charm of dynamic Knox Street. Internationally acclaimed Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has been selected to lead the interior design of the hotel, which will set a new standard for luxury in the city when it debuts. His repertoire of hotels, restaurants and private clubs demonstrates a contemporary luxury that graciously highlights the authenticity of the locale. Next generation talent, Dallas-based interior designer Chad Dorsey has been chosen to design the exquisite private residences with his signature relaxed luxury approach to modern living, which will be complemented by the intimate and highly personalized service of Auberge. The Knox Residences will honor the unmistakable lifestyle of Dallas with expansive and thoughtful living spaces, oversized closets, fine details and two dedicated and exclusive amenity levels.

“We are pleased to partner with Auberge Resorts Collection and look forward to their collaboration as we prepare to launch this extraordinary retreat in the heart of the iconic Knox Street neighborhood,” said Coburn Packard, partner & head of real estate at BDT & MSD Partners. “The Knox represents a natural extension of our portfolio of exceptional and market-defining luxury hotels, resorts, and residences, and we are delighted to bring our vision to life in Dallas’ most vibrant urban lifestyle destination.” 

What was once the Missouri-Kansas-Texas railway in the 1880s, the Katy Trail shines today as Dallas’ familiar haven for outdoor leisure and activity, creating a focal point for the hotel’s scenic grounds. Centered around the 3.5-mile-long public park and walking trail featuring beautiful scenery, well-maintained paths and the city energy, the newly developed area will further serve guests and locals as a picturesque respite while integrating new opportunities to experience shopping, art, culinary, and health and wellness offerings.

With distinct dining at its core, Knox Street harnesses a convivial ambiance that draws visitors, locals and residential owners to experience a unique slice of Dallas. Hotel guests and residential owners will delight in sampling innovative food and drink among the many al fresco dining options, as well as strolling the neighborhood’s tree-lined streets, marveling at the mix of historic and modern architecture and discovering fresh retail—all defining The Knox as a standalone destination for seekers of an elevated urban experience.
