KDC and JLB Partners have broken ground on apartment communities that will be appended to CityLine, the impressive 186-acre, mixed-use development in Richardson. Totaling 532 units, the two assets will front Plano Road and will be within walking distance of the four office towers leased by State Farm.
The first community, which will be located along State Street and adjacent to CityLine Plaza, will feature 233 units above 20,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space, while the second one, located at the corner of CityLine Drive and Plano Road, will encompass 299 units. Ranging in size from 573 to 1,550 square feet, the apartments include one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans with amenities such as hand-scraped hardwood floors, granite and quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and wine racks. Community amenities include a resort-style pool, a fitness center with a spin and yoga room, a resident lounge and kitchen, and a business center.
“The apartment homes at CityLine are a big part of the overall vision we have for the high-energy, walkable CityLine development,” said KDC’s Walt Mountford. “Residents will not only be able to enjoy the fine quality of a JLB community but also CityLine Plaza and fabulous retail, restaurants and entertainment options within minutes of walking out their front doors.”
KDC broke ground on the CityLine master development in July 2013. The first phase of the development is slated to be completed by late 2015 and will include a 150-room select-service hotel, 935 apartment units, an 18,000-square-foot wellness and fitness facility, and a 41,000-square-foot medical office building. At full build-out, CityLine will represent a $1.5 billion investment that features 6 million square feet of office space, two hotels, 3,925 residential units and 300,000 square feet of retail and entertainment space.
