21 Mar New Plano rental community near downtown will include artist lofts
A new Plano housing community in the works will offer a combination of artist lofts and apartments near North Central Expressway.
The 224-unit development planned for a vacant block will provide affordable workforce housing in one of North Texas’ fastest growing communities.
“It will be a mixed-income community, and a little over half of it will be affordable based on what the resident makes,” said Jean Brown with the Plano Housing Corp., which is developing the 5.6-acre project. “It will be a transit-oriented development – it’s less than half a mile from the 15th Street DART station.”
Located at G Avenue and 14th Street east of Central, the project will have a half dozen apartment buildings surrounded by open space and public art plazas. There’s also a community center and swimming pool.
