LaSalle Investment Management, a Jones Lang LaSalle independent subsidiary, will soon begin work on the renovation of the Alesio Urban Center, formerly known as The Shores at Las Colinas, a 908-unit multifamily community located in the Urban Center of Las Colinas in Irving. The community was developed in two phases in 1987 and 1995 and was the first multifamily complex developed in the Urban Center.  The Lake Carolyn-fronting community features six outdoor courtyards, five swimming pools, deck parking, retail shops, restaurants, a lakefront path and gondola boats. “We are very excited not only to restore this once iconic property to its original prominence within Las Colinas but reposition it with the best resident amenity package in the market, in addition to completely modernizing unit interiors. We also look forward to creating the right combination of retail tenancy to be symbiotic with today’s technology and social media savvy and busy renters,” said Ty Spearing, managing director at LaSalle. According to an official press statement, early plans call for the creation of a new fitness center, a lakeside interior and exterior Aqua Lounge, a package delivery center with 24/7 access, a second interior resident lounge, a gaming center, a bike storage and repair center, and a new pet park. LaSalle is collaborating with a number of firms on the project: Lincoln Property Co. has been assigned as manager; Dodd Creative is designing the brand, signage and website for Alesio Urban Center; Village Green Interiors is tackling interior design; and Humphreys and Partners is handling landscaping and hardscaping.
