Alta Henderson

Dallas, Texas

GFF was selected to design this 106-unit multi-family residential project in the popular Henderson Avenue corridor of intown Dallas on the strength of a site plan which delivered 42 units per acre, a greater density of apartments than originally expected. The client’s program asked to avoid a structured parking solution, in order to have a competitive advantage of lower rental rates. The 3-story building hugs the streets in an appropriately urban form, creating a secured parking court accessed by a gated portal. The architectural style is a modern version of the prairie style which predominates in Old East Dallas.

Shallow pitched roofs are rendered in standing seam metal, and brick natural cedar shakes and hardi-panels are used as wall veneers. The project’s construction was completed in late 2011.
