Houston-based developer Urban Genesis has a $20 million multifamily project set to rise in the North Oak Cliff neighborhood in West Dallas, with even more on the way.

The 205,000-square-foot Singleton Highland development is set to break ground in March with an expected opening date sometime in early 2024. The planned five-story building will bring more than 150 units to the intersection of Singleton Boulevard and Borger Street, according to the Dallas Morning News.

The site of the planned rental community happens to be right next to the 25-acre, $300 million Trinity Green development, which includes hundreds of apartments, townhomes and a public park.

Urban Genesis first hinted at the Singleton Boulevard project in February. At the time, DMN reported that the developer was seeking zoning to build a 176-unit apartment project to go along with its three completed apartments in the Bishop Arts section of Oak Cliff.

On top of Singleton Highland, Urban Genesis is also seeking approval to build three more apartment developments throughout West Dallas. It’s currently asking for planning approvals to construct its Bluffview Highline rental community, a three-building complex with more than 150 units near the southeast corner of West Northwest Highway and Lemmon Avenue.

It’s also working on two new adjacent rental properties on Maple Avenue north of Inwood Road. The projects at Maple and Stutz Drive and Maple and Kimsey Drive will each include more than 130 units.
