People have been calling Deep Ellum home since the late 1800s, and the historic district in downtown Dallas is entering a new era with its first residential highrise.
The 17-story, 337-unit Case Building will be the largest new real estate project ever built in Deep Ellum, located near Hall and Main streets, just south of Baylor Medical Center. Dallas-based Westdale Properties and StreetLights Residential are teaming up to develop the property.
“Deep Ellum is known for its rich art and music scene. The ability for residents to walk or bike to local galleries, music venues, restaurants, and shops fits well with Streetlights’ vision of a neighborhood-friendly urban development,” said StreetLights CEO Doug Chesnut in a statement. “The population in this area continues to grow, and StreetLights is excited to provide a building inspired by the architecture and style of Deep Ellum for this expanding community.”
In keeping with the industrial look and feel of the Deep Ellum area, The Case Building’s apartments will offer 10-foot concrete ceilings, exposed brick walls, and open metal shelving in the kitchens. Apartments will range in size from 500 square feet to 1,300 square feet in studio, one- and two-bedroom options.
“We anticipate this project will resonate well with Deep Ellum residents, and we look forward to seeing the finished product,” Westdale President and CEO Joe Beard said in a statement.
Local artists’ work will also be incorporated in the open office area, which will have a business lounge, conference space, and studio offices. Residents will have parking in a private, secure garage under the building.
Other amenities include a club room with coffee bar, a full-service bar, pool table, a private dining room, a dog wash station, bike storage room with bike repair equipment, and a fitness center.
Project lease-up is expected to begin in early 2017 with the first units expected to deliver in spring 2017.
This isn’t the only StreetLights developments in DFW—they’re busy with four other developments, including:
- The McKenzie, a 22-story residential high-rise near Monticello and Cole streets, slated for completion in summer 2017
- The Jordan, a 23-story Uptown high-rise residential development just off McKinney and Thomas avenues, with pre-leasing starting this fall
- The Kathryn – The Canals at Grand Park, the first phase of a three-phase masterplan in Frisco, with a mix of flats and townhomes, scheduled to open in October 2016.
- The Kelton at Clearfork, a four-story residential community in Fort Worth, newly opened and now leasing.
