Deep Ellum is one of our favorite downtown Dallas neighborhoods, and in saying that, we’re probably not alone. Known for its widespread culture and unique urban ambiance, there’s no better place to experience big city living in Dallas than right here in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. The art galleries, the music venues, and all the different kinds of restaurants and shops combine to form a lively and energetic atmosphere that you just don’t see in other parts of town.
To many who are familiar with the area or perhaps already live here, Deep Ellum is mostly known for its authentic loft conversions, which most would agree are some of the coolest places to call home in the city. But according to reports, Dallas-based developers Westdale Real Estate Investment and Management and StreetLights Residential are now teaming up to change the Deep Ellum real estate landscape a bit, bringing the first high-rise apartment tower to the neighborhood.
Being called The Case Building, the new tower will stand 17 stories high and house 337 apartments once completed. And although its design is significantly taller than many of the other surrounding buildings in the neighborhood, developers are still sticking with an industrial-like feel, enabling the new development to fit in seamlessly with the neighborhood and its history. Ten foot concrete ceilings, open metal shelving in the kitchens, exposed brick walls, and even a bit of a warehouse look and fee on the exterior are all expected to be incorporated, and in terms of its units, studio-, one-, and two-bedroom units ranging from 500 to 1,300 square feet will all be available.
Amenities at The Case Building will include a business lounge, conference space and studio offices, a full-service bar, a club room with a coffee bar, a private dining room, a dog wash station, a pool table, an exercise facility, and additional bike storage.
If all goes according to plan, pre-leasing at The Case Building should begin in early 2017 with first move-ins expected that spring.
