More persons will soon be able to benefit from affordable housing solutions in the community of Richardson. Ground was recently broken on the City Line project, which will provide over 500 apartments to residents of the commonwealth. These apartments are being constructed on Plano Road by KDC and JLB Partners. This location is close to the regional campus of State Farm. The first set of rooms is scheduled to be ready to occupancy in the summer of 2016. Anticipation is already high to this 186-acre development.
The apartment complex is being constructed as part of a wider project by the developers. The City Line project also includes a hotel, medical facility and a park. It is anticipated that the project will offer urban comforts, inclusive of entertainment and retail options. Shops have already begun to open, and more expected for the project. In being surrounded by highways and major thoroughfares, Richmond is poised for growth through the City Line project. The developers stay sure that the project will offer a seamless integration with the other commercial elements of the community, and provide numerous benefits for residents and consumers.
The developers have sought to pay keen attention to the needs of the Commonwealth, and will make sure that a sufficient area is ensured to be provided for pedestrians. It has been presented as one of the priorities of the projects. With major urban developments, parking often arises as a concern. Such will not be the case with City Line, with close to 8,000 parking spaces included in the plan for the community. It will ensure that commuters and residents have ample access to parking, and to the various facilities included under this project. Importantly, the project also includes a fitness and wellness center, which is increasingly becoming popular with residents. There is certainly evidence that the needs of Richardson residents have been taken into consideration.
The apartment complex, however, forms the core of City Line. With its proximity to the State Farm campus, workers will have ready access to Richardson Texas apartments. This access is particularly useful as commuting time to and from work will be reduced significantly. The over 8,000 workers on the campus have expressed their excitement as they look toward completion of the City Line apartments.
With thousands of jobs opening up in Richardson, the need for adequate, affordable and comfortable housing is indeed increasing. The City Line apartments will also offer comforts including pools, a coffee bar, movie theatre, playgrounds and volleyball courts. Residents may also be able to get other facilities opened as part of the broader project.
There are additional developments happening in the community. Hunt Development has also announced that it will be constructing a multi-use facility on North Central Expressway. This facility will be for residential or commercial use, and will include over 500 units as well. The step in this process is initially about the construction of almost 300 apartment units. There is certainly lots happening in Richardson, and the community is poised for growth.
