Apartment and retail tower kicks off construction on downtown Dallas’ near east side

Developers have made quick work of starting a new high-rise apartment and retail project on downtown Dallas’ near east side.

The 10-story tower is under construction at Live Oak and Texas streets, a block from DART’s commuter rail line.

Greystar Real Estate Partners is building the more than $100 million project as part of the City Lights development.

The 370-unit apartment development will sit on top of a new Tom Thumb grocery store on the ground floor.

The project will take about two years to complete and is one of almost a dozen new high-rise residential buildings in the Dallas area.

Greystar’s partner in the project is landowner Malouf Interests.

Greystar last year completed a 23-story, 302-unit apartment tower in Dallas’ Victory Park.

Construction has started at the City Lights project just east of downtown Dallas.
