West Commerce Gateway is located at the entry to West Dallas from the Commerce Street Bridge, which connects directly to the heart of Downtown Dallas at the corner of West Commerce and Beckley Avenue. The project is a mixed-use development that consists of 315 apartment units located in a 4-story wrap style building along with 12,700 SF of single story freestanding restaurant and retail space. The restaurant and retail buildings are organized around a central garden and gathering space that is adjacent to the apartment building; along Beckley patrons will enjoy unobstructed views of Downtown Dallas. Restaurant and retail parking is shared in the apartment parking garage to promote an urban streetscape in between the apartment and retail buildings.
The architecture and material palette are reminiscent of West Dallas’s industrial history but the implementation is done with a modern approach. Brick detailing, alternating window patterns, and facade indentations provide the modern building with rich architectural texture while meeting the stringent zoning requirements of the site; additionally, the roof forms of the restaurant and retail buildings draw inspiration from historic structures in the immediate West Dallas area. The project is currently under construction and will deliver units in 2021.
