Jefferson Reserve

FINALIST   | Best Garden Apartment Community

Best Garden Apartment Community

Nominated By: JHP Architecture / Urban Design

Location: Richardson, Texas

Project Statement:

Jefferson Reserve is a new development in the fast-paced growing Cityline area of Richardson, Texas. The Cityline neighborhood houses major corporations such as State Farm, which was relocated to the new development. It sits off the Cityline/Bush station, which is attractive to residents who want an urban home and the accessibility of a transit neighborhood. The development adds more than 400 units to the wooded area, once a nature preserve. Next door is another development by the same owner that JHP designed as well, Jefferson Vantage, which has a higher density and adds 420 units to the master development. Jefferson Vantage sits on a large 15-acre site with a historical marker right in the center of the development. A 100-year-old graveyard sits in the middle of the parking lot. By addressing the historical item, which some may think is an eyesore, it has been activated as a unique and inspiring part of the community. A stream currently runs between the Vantage and Reserve developments, and trail access from both properties promotes an active lifestyle for residents to enjoy the urban, healthy living lifestyle in Richardson.
