Trinity Union

FINALIST   | Best Low-Rise Apartment Community

Best Low-Rise Apartment Community

Nominated By: CBG Building Company

Location: Euless, Texas

Project Statement:

Trinity Union is a 459-unit luxury apartment community, comprising one four-story garage-wrapped building and eight three-story garden-style buildings in Euless, Texas. The community offers residents luxury housing and amenities in an up-and-coming residential area that boasts easy access to Highway 121 and Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport. It is also one of the very few rental options in the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District, one of the top-rated public-school districts in Texas. The site originally comprised abandoned buildings and vacant land, serving no purpose to the surrounding community. Therefore, the design and planning objective of Trinity Union was to create luxury multifamily units within walking distance to great shopping, dining and entertainment to appeal to families, traveling professionals and empty nesters in an underserved market. The procurement of this property proved challenging. The project required purchasing sites from three sellers, combining land in three cities, relocating the Colleyville-Euless city boundary, moving utility mains, improving offsite city streets, and working with FEMA to revise the 30% floodplain on which the site was to be built. Zoning was also a challenge as multifamily uses were not previously allowed. Ultimately, the team was able to overcome these challenges and build the first mid-rise project in Euless, Texas. The community was constructed with a mix of wood and steel structural framing systems, and each building’s façade features its own brick color, designed to emulate multiple warehouse buildings as an homage to the area’s history. This new development was able to effectively aid the surrounding community’s expanding population with its growing demand for more rental units. Trinity Union was leased from 0% to 99% at market-leading rates before construction was complete.
