North Oak Cliff has seen an increase in modern design projects like Kessler Woods in the past few years. Several recently announced projects (lofts, townhomes, retail) are adding to the area's infill development along a path between Bishop Arts district and the Trinity River.
One of the first projects in the corridor of the Trinity River Project (see previous post) is Trinity Townhomes, sited along the Trinty's southern levee between the I-30 and I-35 bridges, within a mile of the Bishop Arts district and just down the hill from Lake Cliff Tower. The twenty-four "understated contemporary" three-story townhouses have a modern aesthetic that integrates natural elements and a variety of textural finishes. Views of downtown and the Trinity basin are a focus of all units; the townhouses along the levee have downtown views from all floors, the interior units from roof decks. The exterior incorporates numerous windows and skylights, cedar-finished garage doors, and metal and stucco siding. Inside, clean lines, soaring ceilings, and bamboo hardwoods tickle modern tastes.
The project, marketed exclusively by David Griffin, is already 70% sold. Prices range from $335K to $449K for remaining townhomes. The first units are scheduled to be completed within the next month, and Phase II will be ready in the spring.
