North Oak Cliff: Trinity Townhomes

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.

I visited these townhomes last week and got a chance to walk into one of the units that is almost complete. All I can say is holy crap they are cool. I have been shopping around for a while and there is nothing on Dallas market that can match the finishes for the price point.

I put my house up for sale today and will be buying one when/if my house sells and they have any left. One of the developers there told me they just bought the land next door and will be building more there too so I hope to get one along the river.

Yeah, I went on their web site and looked at the construction photos. Pretty impressive. I wish I could afford the freestanding one! If I were going to buy a new place, this would be the location. Give the area 5 years and once the Trinity project gets under way, this will be the fastest appreciating area in Dallas from 2010 to 2015.

I was also looking at the plans and you should be able to see all three of the new bridges from there townhomes once they are done.

I drove by today and it looks like some people are starting to move in.
