The ground has broken and earth has begun to move at the northeast portion of Southlake Town Square. This important milestone brings the project’s award-winning architects, Coooper & Stebbins’, one step closer to the completion of their multi-phase downtown residential project known as The Garden District. Crews have been fast at work since early July readying the site for the first phases of construction.
Frank Bliss, President of Cooper & Stebbins says, “After almost five years of planning every detail of the Garden District, it’s thrilling to see construction on the site starting. It’s also great to see the level of interest on our “OwnSouthlake.com” website. The idea of a smart, efficient home that’s steps to all that is Town Square is truly resonating across every age group from young families to empty nesters.’’
According to Sales Director Nancy Holloway, the latest residential development in the heart of Southlake will open up its official sales center on September 5th. Those looking to call the vibrant downtown area home will have 31 new townhome style residences on which to bid. Based on their longstanding history and award winning construction North Richland Hills based Rendition Luxury Homes will be the builders of the brownstones which will feature large floor plans and a wide range of customizable options. Phase two of the Garden District will feature 38 condominiums known as Parkview. The spacious condominium homes have been estimated in size from 1,500 to 3,200 square feet, with the majority being two- and three- bedroom plans.
Holloway added, “Garden District homes will have starting prices of $850,000 for the Brownstones and $550,000 for the Parkview Condominiums.
A hot topic throughout Southlake for years, The Residences will become Southlake Town Square’s first single-level-living residential offering. Both the Residences and the Garden District Brownstones will be high-end, luxury homes, featuring quality design and detail, with well-appointed interior finishes and appliances. Like the initial Brownstones, the design architect for both projects is the well-known David M. Schwarz Associates, with Bennett, Benner & Pettit providing floor plan design on the Garden District Brownstones.
