New skyscraper would sit between Victory Park and Uptown.

One of the first developers in Dallas’ Uptown area is moving ahead with plans for its largest project yet.

Harwood International intends to build a 42-story tower at Caroline and Field streets just north of downtown.

Called Harwood No. 12, the more than 1 million-square-foot skyscraper will straddle Caroline Street and would be the tallest in the Uptown area.

Earlier this month, developer Harwood filed site changes for the property near Victory Park with Dallas’ city plan commission.

And the developer has provided more details of the proposed project. With an estimated cost of more than $100 million, the building would have 15 levels of parking, 20 stories of office space and ground floor retail and restaurants.

A rooftop restaurant is also in the plans.

The skyscraper is being designed by the developer’s Harwood Design Factory.

Harwood International has been developing projects in the area since 1982, when it opened its eight-story Rolex Building near the Crescent.

It’s now building an 18-block mixed-use development called Harwood District that’s home to thousands of office workers, luxury homeowners and retail outlets.

The developer is finishing up work on its latest office tower, a 22-story high-rise on McKinnon Street called Harwood No. 10. And Harwood International is building a high-rise hotel near McKinnon and Moody Street.
