A new apartment community planned just west of downtown Dallas would connect with the planned Trinity River park.

Dallas developer Mill Creek Residential has been working for several months on its Modera Trinity project, which would be built on Beckley Avenue near West Commerce Street.

The roughly 2-acre building site on the banks of the Trinity River is zoned for industrial uses and is now occupied by aging commercial buildings.

The property is smack in the middle of a neighborhood that is redeveloping with new apartments and retail space. Methodist Dallas Medical Center’s campus is a few blocks away.

Mill Creek wants to build about 280 urban-style apartments in a five-story building. The rental units would sit on top of a parking structure to give them views over the adjacent river levee.

Plans for the flat iron-shaped building — designed by award-winning architect WDG — were presented this week to Dallas’ Peer Design Review Committee.

The proposed apartment project would have pedestrian links to the planned West Overlook Park and the planned Trinity River park.

“Our vision here is all about the river,” Mill Creek’s Michael Blackwell said. “It’s about engaging the river in a way that has been talked about for decades and laid out in planning guidance that calls for thousands of residential units activating the street and engaging the river.”

Neighborhoods along Commerce, Fort Worth Avenue and Singleton Boulevard have seen a flurry of redevelopment in the last few years as the city and developers have sought to bring new projects to the area west of downtown.

Dallas-based Mill Creek Residential is one of the country’s largest apartment builders, with multiple projects in North Texas. The developer is currently building a 14-story, 217-apartment community on North Central Expressway near Highland Park.
