One of the largest buildings on McKinney Avenue in the Knox Street shopping and dining district is about to be vacant when Bassett Furniture moves out this fall.
The 10,336-square-foot building is located in a prime spot at 4528 McKinney next to the Chuy’s restaurant that’s on the corner of Knox and McKinney with the Apple Store, Crate & Barrel and the newest addition to the intersection, Anthropologie.
Bassett spokesman Pete Morrison confirmed the store is moving to Inwood Village. The move is expected to be completed by October, but the opening date is “in flux” due to construction-related supply chain issues, he said. Basset has a dozen stores in Texas.
The building Bassett is moving out of is owned by Nabholtz KMCK Partners LP. That partnership also owns the buildings that house Chuy’s and Mattress Firm. Nabholtz KMCK hasn’t been reached for comment.
A partnership made up of billionaire Michael Dell’s family trust, Dallas developer Trammell Crow Co. and Dallas-based Retail Connection owns most of the Knox Street area. A spokeswoman for HP Village Management, which manages Knox and has a minority ownership with Dell’s group, said she didn’t know what was going into the Bassett space.
Knox has long been known as a furniture store destination, starting with the Weir’s Furniture Village that opened on the street in 1948. The area went through big changes in the 1990s, with the addition of Pottery Barn and Crate & Barrel. And it’s happening again. The old Restoration Hardware morphed into a three-level RH Gallery, and Weir’s is in a new 12-story building.
