Phase 2 Kicks Off at DFW Master-Planned Community
- Jun 02, 2016
Frisco, Texas—StreetLights Residential and partner Tricon Capital Group Inc. recently broke ground on the second phase of The Maxwell, a four-story apartment development within The Canals at Grand Park in Frisco, Texas.
The development will add 325 new units to the three-phase project, which will total 1,050 units when complete.
“The growth in and around the Frisco area is incredible with all of the corporate relocations and the new Dallas Cowboys practice facility,” Doug Chesnut, StreetLights’ CEO, said. “We are excited to add The Maxwell to The Canals at Grand Park community and contribute to the booming development of the Frisco landscape. The area presents many new opportunities for StreetLights to provide this fast-growing city with superior residential living. Further, this phase of the project has the ability to accommodate a versatile group of residents who want an active and growing urban lifestyle in a suburban setting.”
Units in The Maxwell range in size from 502 to 1,806 square feet, and offer studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom floor plans, as well as limited two-story floor plans known as “treehouse units,” which also feature a game room and screened-in porch along with a private garage.
Phase one of the StreetLights development produced The Kathryn, a mix of 365 flats and townhomes, which is currently available for pre-leasing.
Both The Kathryn and The Maxwell are just steps away from Founders Hall, a spacious community center offering indoor and outdoor activities for the entire south side of The Canals at Grand Park.
The community provides easy access to the downtown Frisco area and accommodates residents with an active lifestyle where they can take a leisurely walk down the paseo, which includes community fireplaces, TVs and tables with seating along the way. Additionally, a resident courtyard provides an open gathering area complete with grill stations and a fire pit. Other amenities include a coffee bar, lounge and resident kitchen with a bar, along with an indoor/outdoor conference and dining area that opens up to a large covered porch.
According to Chesnut, StreetLights’ goal for each project is to create a unique and engaging community from the outside in that begins with community-driven design. For example, The Maxwell displays classic American and coastal gulf architecture with exceptional leasing and amenity spaces designed by LRK and 5G Studio.
Other StreetLights Dallas-Fort Worth developments include The McKenzie, a 22-story residential high-rise, which recently broke ground in the Knox-Henderson neighborhood; The Jordan, a 23-story residential high-rise located just off McKinney Avenue in the Uptown area of Dallas, recently opened and is now leasing; and The Kelton at Clearfork, a four-story residential community comprised of 392 units which is located in Fort Worth, Texas and now leasing.
