Development in the works along Dallas transit’s Green Line


By: Steve Brown The Dallas Morning News
Commuters riding DART’s Green Line have watched for months as work crews build the first apartments next to downtown Carrollton’s transit center.
And in just weeks, the tenants will start arriving at the 179-unit project on Main Street south of Belt Line Road.
“There will be residents moving in at the end of July — it’s coming up quick,” said Joel Behrens, senior vice president of developer High Street Residential. “We’ll have the whole thing finished up by the end of October.”
And the developer has already signed leases on the rental units, before completion.
“We are definitely looking at building more apartments in another phase,” Behrens said.
Eighteen months after the light-rail line linking Carrollton and Farmers Branch to Dallas opened, development along the rail corridor is picking up.
