Builder Trammell Crow Residential has taken the wraps off designs for its new apartment community in Dallas' popular Lower Greenville district.
The more than 400-unit rental project is planned for the 8-acre vacant property at Greenville Avenue and Belmont that was previously the site of the Vickery Towers retirement community.
Crow Residential bought the high-profile property a few months ago from the Seattle-based investment company that tore down the old retirement buildings built in 1964.
The new owner hired Dallas-based architect GFF to plan its Alexan Lower Greenville apartment project which will be built on the site.
"The planning and development process for Alexan Lower Greenville has included, at every step, careful attention to the character and distinctive needs of the Lower Greenville neighborhood," Steve Bancroft, Crow Residential's senior managing director, said in a statement. "This includes craftsman design elements, scale that is appropriate and consistent with surrounding structures, and below-grade parking."
The planned rental community will be the largest such project built in the Lower Greenville neighborhood in more than a decade.
