New apartments will replace bit of old England in Northwest Dallas
With flight expansions at Love Field the northwest Dallas neighborhood surrounding the airport is seeing resurgence.
A new rental community on Northwest Highway is going on up the site of a storied Dallas apartment community.
The recently demolished Sherwood Forest apartments were built in the 1960s in faux historic architecture with an old England theme.
Apartment builder Trinsic Residential Group knocked down the old rental units with their turrets and half-timbered gables and is putting up a modern apartment project.
The new project will have 473 apartments and townhomes designed by Dallas architect GFF.
The Aura Bluffview community will have a combination of three and four story buildings.
The new apartment community at 3932 W. Northwest Highway will occupy about seven acres.
"We sold off about 3 acres to Green Brick to build for-sale single family homes," said Trinsic Residential’s Adam Brown.
Green Brick Partner’s Centre Living Homes is one of Dallas’ busiest townhome builders with projects throughout the city.
Brown said Trinsic’s first apartment units on Northwest Highway will be ready late this year.
The old Sherwood Forest apartments and the Royal Coach Inn hotel next door were once two of the most successful real estate projects in the area near Love Field.
The development site is still close to not only the airport but nearby neighborhoods in North Dallas and the Park Cities.
