226 apartments going up in Sylvan/Thirty’s backyard

photo 1

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.

    I am not disagreeing with that logic at all. I love living in a home with a paid off mortgage.

    But “everyone” doesn’t have to make that amount of money. Only 226 people do.

    And you and I not wanting to pay that much is totally different than saying it is “not sustainable.”

    Do you garden in your backyard? I run the Oak Cliff Gardeners group on Facebook. Over 500 members, beginners to experts. Check it out. We share plants, seeds, questions, answers and who is having sales. Today I bought a $400 Japanese maple for $50!! Happy dance. Several other friends scored some good finds too.

    Maybe but everyone doesnt make that amount of money…..i make pretty good money and i wouldnt feel comfortable paying that much money for a 1bd apt….when i can own a house with a back yard for less

    Is that all of Oak Cliff or North Oak Cliff?

    Uptown is built out and these units target millenials working downtown. They will not blink at $1300 a month with a 5 minute commute to downtown.

    Ridiculous. Pricing is not sustainable

    The creativity behind these apartment names is mind-blowing. Alta West AND Alta West Commerce, not to mention Bell (nowhere near) Bishop Arts.

    And let’s not forget Alexan West, Cypress at Trinity Groves and Trinity Green.
