AMLI Fountain Place
Key Players: Page, AMLI, and Goddard Investment Group
AMLI Fountain Place is the residential sibling tower to Dallas’ original Fountain Place. It is located precisely where the original architect Henry Cobb (founding partner of the internationally renowned firm formerly known as I.M. Pei & Partners) envisioned a second twin tower more than 30 years ago when the original Fountain Place office building was constructed. The tallest residence and the only for-rent high-rise living experience in the Dallas Arts District, the 45-story multifamily delivered 367 units to the neighborhood. Architecture firm Page worked with the developer to design the AMLI Fountain Place building and its interiors. AMLI pulled in Archer Western as general contractor to ensure Page’s design could be carried out due to the tower’s complex design and height.
Key Players: OM Housing, City of Arlington, Mission Arlington, and YMCA
Developed by OM Housing, the $27 million, 112-unit Bardin Apartment complex in Arlington was designed with affordable housing in mind. The 115,618 square foot complex came to life thanks to housing tax credits from the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, with additional financing from Colliers Mortgage. The TDHCA credits allow the complex to provide truly affordable housing for the area. Sitting on 6.5 acres, the multifamily is designed with the outdoors in mind. Amenities include a swimming pool, outdoor BBQ grills, and picnic seating, and bike trails. There is also a butterfly garden on-site. OM Housing worked closely with the City of Arlington, Mission Arlington, and the Arlington YMCA while developing the complex. The community organizations will help provide learning and lifestyle activities for residents of all ages.
