StreetLights Residential Breaks Ground on 212 units in Uptown
DALLAS – June 3, 2014– StreetLights Residential (SLR) recently broke ground on a new high-rise development. Sitting on nearly one-acre, the project site is just off McKinney Avenue at the Maple/Routh connection and Thomas Avenue in the Uptown area of Dallas. The project is ideally located within walking distance of a vibrant community full of shopping, dining and employment venues.
“The project’s proximity to both Uptown and downtown Dallas provides an ideal location,” said SLR CEO Doug Chesnut. “The landscape of Dallas’ urban core has changed dramatically over the past few years, and we are excited to be a part of this positive change and growth as we begin work on another urban infill project.”
Designed by Gromatzky Dupree & Associates (GDA), the luxury 23-story high-rise residential development will be comprised of 212 units with one- and two-bedroom floor plans in addition to penthouse options with great views of the iconic Dallas skyline. The interiors are being designed by Waldrop + Nichols Studio, LLC. The landscape will be designed by Studio Outside.
SLR is developing the project and SLR Uptown Construction LLC is serving as the general contractor. The project is expected to deliver its first units in late 2015.
SLR is also developing The Taylor, a 17-story luxury apartment tower with 308 units, located in Dallas’ Uptown neighborhood. For more information visit streetlightsres.com.
