DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Transcontinental Realty Investors Inc., (NYSE: TCI) and Abode Properties recently broke ground on its new development Lakeside Lofts in Dallas, Texas.
Lakeside Lofts is a picturesquely situated, lakefront property. This upscale multi-family project consisting of 498 units is located in the 1,200 acre Mercer Crossing mixed use development. The highly desirable site is located adjacent to the existing Omni Hotel, as well as two other hotels currently under construction. This market consistently reports the highest occupancy percentages of any full-service hotel in the Dallas area.
Lakeside Lofts offers resort style pools, upscale clubhouse and fitness center, theater, two 6 level parking garages, bocce ball court, fire pit, hiking & biking trail, and easy access to several of Dallas’s major freeways and toll roads. Residents will find ten 1 & 2 bedroom floorplans to choose from, featuring shaker style cabinets, 2 inch faux wood blinds, granite counter tops, in unit washer and dryer, and stainless steel appliances. Units also offer vinyl plank wood flooring in all kitchen, bath and laundry areas, and vinyl plank wood flooring throughout in all first floor units.
Mercer Crossing is a mixed use development including office, single family and multifamily residential, hotel, and retail. Because of its prime location, demand for apartments in the fastest growing area of Greater Dallas is exceeding availability, even with several new projects in the area. Mercer South will also include a 200 room hotel with a restaurant row and boardwalk, trails and parks, retail, and grocery. Builders currently under contract include Beazer Homes, M/I Homes, W3 Luxury Living, Oakdale Homes, Megatel Homes, Sienna Homes, and First Texas Homes.
“It’s exciting to watch the development of Lakeside Lofts right outside our Browning Place windows,” commented Daniel J. Moos, TCI’s President and CEO. “This is the eighth multi-family asset we’ve developed or leased up so far this year. We expect more great additions to the portfolio during the remaining months of 2018.”
