Builder JPI starting new apartment communities in Richardson and Farmers Branch

Another huge apartment development is in the works for Richardson’s Telecom Corridor.

Dallas-based builder JPI said Monday that it will build a 420-unit rental community just south of the $1.5 billion CityLine development near North Central Expressway. JPI’s Routh Creek project will open in mid-2018.

The urban-style apartment community is adjoining Richardson’s 58-acre Spring Creek Natural Area, which is on the east side of U.S. Highway 75 and south of Renner Road.

The nature area includes five miles of hike-and-bike trails.

The Routh Creek apartments will be between two DART rail stations.

“Routh Creek offers residents a true live, work and play environment,” Matt Brendel, senior vice president and development partner at JPI, said in a statement. “It’s only a stone’s throw from the new mixed use CityLine development including a DART light rail station, and the property also sits within beautiful city parkland that is very unique to the area.”

JHP Architecture designed the project.

CityLine has business campuses for State Farm Insurance and Raytheon Co., which have more than 10,000 workers in the project.

More than 2,000 apartments are under construction in the Telecom Corridor.

JPI also said it’s building a second, 424-acre apartment community in Farmers Branch in the Mercer Crossing mixed-use development.

The apartment community on the south side of LBJ Freeway near Luna Road will open in early 2018. Architecture Demarest designed the project.

“The luxury property neighbors a newly built 30-acre lake, has over two miles of trails along an internal greenbelt,” Brendel said.

JPI is one of North Texas’ biggest apartment builders and also has offices in California and Texas.
