Ground has broken on a luxury condominium on the perimeter of Highland Park with direct access to the Katy Trail. Called The Mondara, the development is a 35-unit building going up at 4502 Abbott Ave., within walking distance to Knox Street.
Built by Dallas-based Robert Elliott Custom Homes, the residences range from 1,500 square feet (no balcony) to 4,300 square feet (with balcony); prices start at $800,000. Designed by architecture firm Stocker Hoesterey Montenegro, the single-story flats reside in a three-story building with transitional exterior architecture and stylish interiors. Each home boasts one to three bedrooms, including master suite, study, walk-in closets and large open rooms for entertaining indoor or outdoors.
A release describes them as perfect for those seeking a turnkey lifestyle or families seeking schooling within Highland Park ISD. Planned amenities include landscaped courtyards and green spaces, private terraces and balconies, secured underground parking, controlled lighting systems, and premium appliances such as Wolf and Sub-Zero. Residents and visitors also have access to an onsite guest suite and concierge service.
The development is going onto a vacant plot of land that was previously an older two-story apartment building. It is not the seven-story, multifamily apartment complex planned along the Katy Trail that Highland Park objected to; that one is a few blocks over, at 4719 Cole Ave.
Robert Elliott Custom Homes is also building 15 townhomes on Milton Avenue in University Park, adjacent to Snider Plaza. Its parent company, Stillwater Capital Investments, is constructing a 180-unit multifamily development in Dallas on Peak Street, and it will break ground in the spring on a 588-unit multifamily complex on Amesbury Drive near the intersection of East Lovers Lane and Greenville Avenue.
