New Apartment Flats Under Construction in Dallas

DALLAS, TX - Award-winning multifamily design firm, Meeks + Partners is pleased to announce construction is underway on a new Greystar development located in the prominent Dallas Lakewood community just a half mile from White Rock Lake. The new community will feature both traditional apartment flats and townhomes on a 13.5 acre site. With a less than five minute commute into downtown Dallas and direct access to the Santa Fe Trail, this property offers the best of both worlds. Units will be available for occupancy in July of this year and completion is expected in the spring of 2013.

Situated on the corner of La Vista and Grand Avenue, Lakewood Flats will offer 435 units with a mix of one and two bedroom flats and townhomes. Each townhome will have a direct access garage and an elevated entry patio space. Meeks + Partners designed Lakewood Flats with their urban garden product type which gets over 30 units per acre producing units that are over 80 percent efficient, something that is often hard for developers to achieve on sites that fall in the 8-14 acre range. Great care went into designing a community that would fit into the existing, established Lakewood surroundings. The exterior finishes will include stone, board and batten, fiber-cement siding and deco brackets. The resort style property will feature two pools, each with amenity areas. The larger pool will have a separate cabana with showers and changing areas, in addition to outdoor grilling areas. The second pool has a negative edge water wall and boasts 3,500 square feet of covered lounge space and an outdoor fireplace with complete outdoor kitchen. This pool is located at the clubhouse along with the leasing offices. Amenities at the clubhouse will include cyber lounge with conference rooms, coffee bar, game room and a 1,500 square foot fully equipped fitness room with tanning facility. Residents at Lakewood Flats will have the easy access to downtown, all the luxuries of suburb living with lake access, bike & walking trails and the benefits of living in one of Dallas’ most prominent neighborhoods.
