Toll Brothers planning 280 rentals on popular West Commerce stretch

A busy stretch of West Commerce Street near downtown is getting another major project.

The West Dallas business strip is already seeing hundreds of apartments under construction. Now one of the nation’s largest homebuilders, Toll Brothers, is working on a new rental community.

Toll Brothers plans to build on a roughly 4-acre site at the northeast corner of West Commerce and Pittman Street.

The property is occupied by a large commercial building. It’s just west of where another builder, Alliance Residential, is putting up more than 300 apartments.

Spokesman John Piedrahita confirmed that Toll Brothers is working on the deal. “At this time, it is slated to be approximately 280 units,” he said.

Toll Brothers is working on another apartment project in Dallas’ Oak Lawn neighborhood at Congress Avenue and Welborn Street.

The Pennsylvania-based builder has apartment projects in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C. It has projects on the way in New York and Massachusetts.

Toll Brothers also builds single-family homes in more than a dozen Dallas-Fort Worth locations.
