Construction is complete on Kilby, a new apartment community from Toll Brothers Apartment Living and partner Daiwa House Texas Inc., in Frisco, Texas. Built by KWA Construction, the property is part of Frisco Square, a $600 million mixed-use development in the city north of Dallas. The four-story, 258-unit, 279,288-square-foot community is the first multifamily project in Texas by Toll Brothers Apartment Living, a rental subsidiary of Toll Brothers Inc.

The aesthetic of Kilby is inspired by Frisco’s industrial legacy, which includes its long-time relationship with The Frisco Railroad. Interiors designed by Chicago-based interior design firm Mary Cook Associates draw on that history and result in an “elevated industrial” personality seen in the finishes, furniture and programming of the community.

Features and finishes of apartments include wood-style flooring in living areas, tile in baths and plush carpet in bedrooms, Whirlpool full-sized washers and dryers and seven-day programmable thermostats. A club area with a double-sided fireplace and a bar and social lounge is among the more prominent amenity spaces.

“The ongoing pandemic required our project teams to prudently enact social distancing guidelines, implement temperature monitoring procedures and set up additional hand-washing stations, in addition to utilizing PPE or working from home when not in the field,” KWA Construction President Brian Webster told Multi-Housing News.

Convenient access

Master-planned development Frisco Square sprawls across 147 acres and will include as much as 4.4 million square feet of multifamily, retail, office and municipal facilities. Located at 8455 Grace St. within Frisco Square, at the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and Main St., Kilby is part of a 25-acre area developed by B/K Multifamily. The area is zoned for more than 1,600 apartments, condos and other residential housing.

The location gives residents quick and easy access to Dallas, as well as Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field. Toll Brothers Apartment Living manages the development and marketing of Kilby.

Three months ago, KWA Construction topped out 880 LYN in Irving, Texas.
