Have you noticed we have a bit of a building boom going on? I haven’t seen this amount of construction since the 1980s. It’s very exciting, and there may not be anything more exciting than watching what’s going on with Centre Living Homes. I live in East Dallas, so I’ve had my eye on their Caddo + Munger development for a few months now, and I’m excited to present this fabulous project as our Inwood Home of the Week feature.
Centre Living Homes

But before I reveal all on the Centre Living Homes Caddo + Munger development, let me tell you a bit about Centre Living Homes. They have 16 projects that are under development or in construction right now. They are primarily in East Dallas, Bishop Arts, and the Cedars, all hip, happening areas. I spoke to Trevor Brickman, president and CEO of Centre Living Homes, and was more than impressed. Brickman grew up in the business. His dad is the CEO of Green Brick Partners. Their website puts it more succinctly than I can:

Green Brick Partners, Inc. is a publicly traded company listed on The NASDAQ Capital Market under the ticker symbol “GRBK.” Green Brick Partners, Inc. is a diversified homebuilding and land development company that acquires and develops land, provides land and construction financing to its controlled builders, and participates in the profits of its controlled builders. Green Brick provides expertise and capital to build neighborhoods with timeless, classic architecture interwoven with the latest technological advancements, and in turn provides a superior long-term return for its investors, residents, and cities it builds in.

In other words, the dinner table discussions growing up in Brickman’s home were more likely centered on cost-effective building than what was on TV that week! I have always maintained regardless of the preferred topic you learn a lot through osmosis at the family dinner table. Brickman proves my theory is correct, as his career path was clear. He went straight into construction management and real estate finance. He loves the business.

Residences at CityLine Offer Single-Family Home Living in Hip Urban Environment | CandysDirt.com

We love the CityLine development in Richardson, a live-work-dine-play destination that is home to 1,900 luxury apartments, townhomes, and houses. But only one developer is creating single-family residences, and there are only 32 of those. Talk about one-of-a-kind!

Building and sales at the Residences at CityLine from Centre Living Homes are in full swing. The model opened in December and they’ve sold nine homes, completed two spec houses, and started construction on 12 more. 

These are really visionary, folks — there are no other projects like the Residences at CityLine in nearby suburbs because this is leading edge. And the houses are gorgeous! Think large, open-planned spaces, private side courtyards, high-end amenities, and clean modern designs. I love them! 

“This is an urban, exciting lifestyle where everything is walkable here and you’re near a DART station, the Telecom Corridor, and centered between downtown Dallas and the northern cities” said Trevor Brickman, President of Centre Living Homes. “With everything CityLine has to offer, buyers have a ready-to-love lifestyle just out their doors.” 

The Residences at CityLine range in size from 2,700 to 3,500 square feet with three and four bedrooms and a price range of $525K to the high $600s. Let me show you around.
