A four-story apartment complex is taking shape on the Downtown side of Sylvan Thirty.

Wood Partners, the developer behind what is now Bell Bishop Arts and the nearby Alta West Commerce, is the six-acre project’s builder.

The units are expected to rent for an average of more than $1,300 a month.

Work also has begun on Alexan West Dallas, a Trammel Crow Residential mixed-use project with 340 apartments plus retail space on the site of the old Mission Motel. Add 200 apartments at Sylvan Thirty and the 252 at Alta West Commerce (on the 8 acres that used to be Dallas West Mobile Home and RV Park) and I get 1,018 upscale new apartments within that three-block stretch of West Commerce.
