Construction is kicking off on another Dallas high-rise residential building — this time on the edge of Highland Park. Developer Mill Creek Residential is building the new apartment tower on North Central Expressway just south of Mockingbird Lane.
The 14-story building is at the dead end of McKinney Avenue and on the Katy Trail.
“It will be prominent over Central Expressway,” said Michael Blackwell, Mill Creek senior managing director. Mill Creek...bought the more than 1-acre site for the project about a year ago. The site is now occupied by the former Carter Eye Center building, which is being demolished. Mill Creek will build 217 rental units in the new high-rise, which was designed by architect BKV Group.
On the McKinney Avenue side of the building facing Highland Park, the building will have walk-up townhouse units and a pedestrian lounge. The new Modera Katy Trail rental community will include a piano lounge, a fifth-floor amenity level with resident clubhouse, a fitness facility and a landscaped pool deck facing downtown. Coworking office booths in the clubhouse will be themed as vintage rail cars like those that once ran on the Katy Trail railway line. A penthouse “canopy club” will have private dining, workspaces, wine storage and views of SMU and Highland Park.
It’s the ninth apartment development for Mill Creek in the Dallas area since 2011. The North Central Expressway tower will be Mill Creek’s first high-rise project in North Texas, but the developer has done apartment towers in other U.S. markets. More than a dozen high-rise residential towers are being built or have just opened in North Texas.
