JPI Named Dallas-Fort Worth’s Number One Apartment Developer Four Years Running


IRVING, Texas (Feb. 4, 2019) – In a market where multifamily is booming and ranks first nationally, JPI continues to shine above the rest. Per RealPage Inc., JPI has been recognized as Dallas-Fort Worth’s most active apartment developer for the fourth year in a row, with 5,046 homes now under construction. The second most active apartment developer has 1,431 homes under construction. JPI also completed a market-high 1,397 apartment homes in 2018.

“There is undoubtedly a large amount of growth occurring in the Dallas-Fort Worth market,” said Matt Brendel, divisional president and managing partner at JPI. “Because we have been in the market for more than 30 years, we are uniquely positioned to cater to residents and their needs. Armed with decades of market knowledge and a talented team of passionate associates, JPI is well-positioned for success.”

In 2018, JPI started seven communities, adding to their already robust market presence. In the DFW market, JPI has a portfolio of 17 communities completed and in operation or under construction. JPI continues to focus on submarkets with strong employment centers and areas that truly offer a “live, work, play” experience.

JPI’s newest DFW development, Jefferson East Branch, is located along the Dallas North Tollway south of Spring Valley Road and will provide 390 new apartment homes to Farmers Branch. The community, which broke ground in December 2018, is less than one mile from Galleria Dallas (and the recently named “Hotel of the Year” Westin Galleria), which welcomes around 6 million visitors annually.

“It’s been an exciting year, and we are motivated as we kick off this next year,” said Brendel. “We are inspired to provide thoughtfully designed communities that the residents will be proud to call home. As for JPI, we plan to continue delivering the highest-quality apartment homes in strategic locations throughout the DFW area.”
