UDR Turns to Thiel For Designs

UDR Turns to Thiel For Designs DALLAS, TX - UDR Inc., a Denver-based REIT, turned to Dallas-Fort Worth-based Thiel and Thiel when developing Vitruvian Park, a 99-acre multifamily, commercial and retail development in the Dallas suburb of Addison, Texas. With 300,000 sf of office and retail space and 5,500 dwelling units, the $1 billion mixed-use project is Addison's first major sustainable green initiative and the largest ever undertaken by UDR. Deeply imbedded within the city's urban landscape, Vitruvian Park's residential and commercial district will feature a lush 12-acre park with jogging and bike trails, a spring-fed creek, expansive water features, an amphitheater, and a broad array of shopping and services within comfortable walking distance.

Dallas-based Andres Construction broke ground last May on this first of six phases which includes 50,000 sf of office space, 667 apartments, 32,100 sq ft of retail space at the street level. The estimated completion date is first-quarter 2010. According to UDR's initial Director of Interior Design on the Vitruvian project: "Thiel and Thiel was selected because of their internal ability to deliver unique interior design and architectural solutions that out-pace their competition. This has given UDR the power to be innovative and confident in the changing marketplace."

Thiel and Thiel has also been commissioned to complete renovations for the leasing and amenity spaces at UDR's current premier property, Legacy Village in Plano, Texas. Its highest profile redevelopment, UDR called upon Thiel and Thiel to infuse new energy, assisting to reposition the property into one of UDR's key communities. The firm has just completed the interior design and interior architecture package, which not only included adding cutting-edge details to the interiors and revamping leasing and amenity spaces such as the fitness and business centers, but also creating a new logo and branding package to solidify the property's identity. Located within the Shops at Legacy, residents benefit from entertainment, fine dining, and boutique shopping.
