Rooms With a (River) View: Modera Trinity Apartments Set to Open in Dallas

Designed by WDG Architecture with a "lifted podium aesthetic," the building's amenities and most apartment homes are elevated above the Trinity River's west levee. Modera Trinity offers panoramic views of the Dallas skyline, two Calatrava bridges, and the Trinity River greenbelt.

Dallas developer Mill Creek Residential announced the start of preleasing at Modera Trinity, a luxury mixed-used community sited along the west levee of the Trinity River.

“The neighborhood possesses a refined industrial spirit and is rapidly becoming one of the most desirable places to live in Dallas,” Michael Blackwell, senior managing director of development in North Texas for Mill Creek Residential, said in a statement. “We’re eager to join the neighborhood with a unique offering that might be as attractive to empty nesters and downsizers as it is to more conventional residents choosing the luxury and convenience of renting so close to where they work and play.”

Mill Creek, a developer and operator specializing in premier rental communities across the U.S., said the seven-story community features 204 apartment homes and 4,000 square feet of ground-floor retail space on a formerly vacant industrial site. Rents range from $1,775 for a 672-square-foot one-bedroom to $4,685 for a three-bedroom, two-bath, 1,641-square-foot apartment on the seventh floor.

“Modera Trinity features larger floorplans, more expansive views and more convenient access to trails and open space than have been available in this section of the city, and we believe it will quickly become a highly sought-after living option,” Blackwell added.

‘Lifted podium aesthetic’ offers views of bridges, skyline, greenbelt

WDG Architecture, with offices in Dallas and Washington, D.C., is the architect of record on the project. The company said the development is uniquely designed with a lifted podium aesthetic that elevates the building’s amenities and most apartment homes above the levee. It offers unobstructed, panoramic views of the iconic Dallas skyline, the two signature Calatrava bridges and the city’s most expansive naturalized greenbelt.

First move-ins are anticipated for March.

Located at 2350 N Beckley Ave., the triangular apartment community veers towards the Trinity Skyline Trailhead and a future park that will provide residents with a trail-oriented, nature-focused experience, Mill Creek said.

The company noted that Modera Trinity’s residents will be in close proximity of downtown, Uptown, the Design District and the additional nearby shopping, dining, and cultural attractions contained within Trinity Groves, Sylvan Thirty, and Bishop Arts.

All in the details and amenities

Modera Trinity offers studio, one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments with den layouts available and an average size of 1,056 square feet. With the exception of six walk-up townhomes along Beckley Avenue, homes begin at 30 feet off the ground, creating an elevated view in all directions.

Community amenities include a 24-hour club-quality fitness studio, hotel-like lobby, onsite retail, bike storage, pet spa, secured garage, and EV charging stations on the first two levels.

Mill Creek said the third-floor amenity level, intentionally set at the height of the levee, includes a resident clubhouse with coworking spaces, coffee bar, catering kitchen, conference room, and multiple lounge areas that lead out to an expansive amenity deck. The deck opens toward the river, bridges, and skyline with a resort-style pool, grilling area, outdoor kitchen and dining, lounge seating, fire pit, and a glass rail to maximize the views.

At the top of the building is The Solarium, a greenery-draped community room which includes lounge seating, TVs, a private dining space, and an outdoor terrace, Mill Creek said.

Interior finishes include stainless steel appliances, 42-inch soft-close cabinetry with accent lighting, quartz countertops, sleek tile backsplashes, dine-in kitchen islands, built-in desks and shelves, mudrooms and smart features such as turnkey WiFi, smart thermostats, and keyless entry.
