HALL Arts Residences, the 28-story luxury residential high-rise under construction in the Dallas Arts District of downtown Dallas, has a unique distinction in multifamily living.
It is the first residential development to register for WELL Multifamily Certification in Texas, HALL Group announced Tuesday.
WELL is a performance-based system for measuring, certifying, and monitoriing features of the built environment that impact human wellness through water, air, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort, and mind. It is administered by International WELL Building Institute.
HALL said that in partnership with the project’s architect, HKS Inc., and AD100 interior designer Emily Summers Design Associates, the building was designed to be the healthiest high-rise in the state.
“A focus on health and wellness has become a key feature of today’s luxury residential developments.”
It said that once the property opens in 2020, homeowners there will have the highest level of health and wellness in their built environment.
“A focus on health and wellness has become a key feature of today’s luxury residential developments,” Craig Hall, chairman of HALL Group and developer of HALL Arts Residences, said in the release. “It was important to us to take this a step further at HALL Arts Residences by pursuing WELL Certification and designing the most-innovate, health-driven environment for our homeowners.”
Toward its effort to receive the certification, HALL has integrated technologies into the building’s design that include minimization of indoor air pollutants via multilevel air filtration, elimination of building materials containing VOCs, thick demising walls that mitigate noise transfer between and within homes, a sound reducing membrane installed in the floors, healthy food optons, on-site fitness facilities, light-optional interior design palettes created by Emily Summers to maximize comfort, and an environment that is infused with beauty and inspiring art.
HALLS ARTS RESIDENCES SHOWS COMMITMENT TO HEALTH
HKS Principal Eddie Abeyta said his company shares HALL’s commitment to creating healthy environments.
“At HKS, we’re always seeking out partnerships with developers that understand the value of creating healthy environments and are going beyond the status-quo,” Abeyta said in the release.
Abeyta said the WELL Building Standard is an important differentiator in the current luxury residential market because it places a new “premium on environments that allows for one to breathe better, sleep better, and live better.”
