The two-phase Grand Prairie Apartments project consists of two new apartment buildings totaling 300 apartments and a small commercial building. Residential units are a mix of one, two, and three bedrooms. The 6,000 SF commercial building acts as an anchor, highlighting the complex’s entrance. The project is located in Grand Prairie, near Dallas, Texas. This fast-developing area’s modernized development guidelines required concealing garages and surface parking, prioritizing mixed-use construction, and enhancing the pedestrians’ experience. The proposed material palette also stems from the same requirements.
