GARLAND, TX - When it comes to choosing a place to live, North Texas residents join the rest of the country in a desire to decrease commute times and increase life balance. JPI, the North Texas leader in multifamily development, has taken the first step in meeting both needs for Garland residents with the start of construction of Jefferson Woodlands. The luxury development will offer residents the best of both worlds: a short drive to the nearby CityLine and Telecom Corridor business parks, and a walk's distance to the adjacent 33-acre Spring Creek Forest Preserve.
"We saw a unique opportunity in the dynamic growth of the Garland submarket," said Brad Taylor, JPI's chief development officer and national managing partner. "The city's strategic planning has created an ideal environment for our future residents and a development worthy of investment."
Located off President George Bush Turnpike, Jefferson Woodlands will include 364 apartment homes ranging from 600 to almost 1,600 square feet, an extensive amenities package, and quality upgraded interiors. Jefferson Woodlands is also situated near a host of grocery, retail, entertainment and dining options.
"We look forward to delivering a community that will provide the convenience of a beautiful home that is equally close to work as it is to nature," said Matt Brendel, senior vice president and development partner at JPI.
Jefferson Woodlands will also offer residents: The ability to be less than three miles from Firewheel Town Center, a 1 million-square-foot retail space that hosts big names such as Macy's, Dillard's, Barnes & Noble and an AMC Theatre; The convenience of Spring Creek Forest Preserve's master-planned trail system; State-of-the-art fitness and yoga facilities; Urban 10-foot ceilings; Private patios with ground-floor private yards; and Townhome-style apartment homes.
"This development represents the next step in Garland's evolution," said Garland City Council member Scott LeMay. "Jefferson Woodlands will embody the best that Garland has to offer: sustainability, nature and commerce with a hometown feel."
