Richardson is booming, thanks to CityLine's long roster of shops and restaurants and the many big-name companies that have moved their offices to the area. And what's right next to it all? Alexan Central, a new all-in-one apartment community that combines smart luxury with an unbeatable location.
Coal Vines, Tom + Chee, Whole Foods, Tricky Fish, Edoko Sushi and Robata, Taco Diner, Super Chix, Jasper's — it's all here and then some. Just a stone's throw away from the Alexan are some of North Texas' hottest dining destinations, as well as the CityLine/Bush DART station stop (U.S. 75 and the President George Bush Turnpike are mere minutes away). A movie theater is slated to open at CityLine in 2017, and there are already several spas and medical offices for practical services.
But you might be too comfy at home to venture out often. Homes at Alexan Central range from studio to two-bedroom floorplans, and come standard with an array of cool amenities. Love the feeling of space? Each unit has a minimum of 9.5-foot ceilings. Granite a must-have? You'll find it in all the kitchens and bathrooms. Need high-end appliances? There's stainless steel in the kitchen, plus a washer and dryer included in each unit. Carpet a deal-breaker? Stained concrete or plank wood are the floor materials of choice.
Certain units even come outfitted with especially swank touches, such as custom closets, wine fridges, wood-framed mud rooms, and vertical spa shower/tub combos.
And that's all just in your own residence. The community itself boasts such perks as a clubroom with billiards and shuffleboard, resort-style pools and cabanas, and courtyard grilling and outdoor gaming areas (count sand volleyball among the courts). On the fifth floor, an open-air amenity deck mixes a business center with skyline views. A gym filled with state-of-the-art fitness equipment also boasts internet televisions, workout tracking, and a yoga studio. The dog park gives Fido nearly an acre of land to run out his energy, plus there's a dog wash for spiffing up after playtime. Or you both can venture offsite to take advantage of the nearby 40-plus miles of hike and bike trails. And if your bicycle needs a tune-up, there's an onsite repair and storage center.
Alexan Central is open now, but you'll want to reserve your spot for the grand opening celebration in July. The theme "A Taste of CityLine at Alexan Central" promises tasty bites from the neighboring restaurants, along with signature spirits, live music, tours, a grand prize giveaway, and much more.
