Deep Ellum enters a new era of development with the announcement of a high-rise residential building, plotted for an empty lot at the corner of Hall and Main streets.

Called the Case Building, it's a 17-story project that will be the first high-rise multifamily development in Deep Ellum, with 337 units ranging from 500 to 1,300 square feet, from Westdale and StreetLights Residential.

StreetLights CEO Doug Chesnut says in a release that the building will meet the needs of the neighborhood.

"The ability for residents to walk or bike to local galleries, music venues, restaurants, and shops fits well with Streetlights' vision of a neighborhood-friendly urban development," he says. "The population in this area continues to grow, and StreetLights is excited to provide a building inspired by the architecture and style of Deep Ellum for this expanding community."

The units' design will have an industrial feel with 10-foot concrete ceilings, brick walls, and open metal shelving in the kitchens. Units will range from studio, one-, and two-bedroom options. Parking will be provided in a private, secure garage.

The building will feature an "open office experience" with a business lounge, conference space, and studio offices. Local art will be incorporated in the space.

Additional amenities include a club room with coffee bar, full-service bar, and pool table; private dining room; dog wash station; and bike storage room with bike repair equipment.

A fitness center will overlook an outdoor pool/courtyard area with Technogym cardio equipment and strength training machines. A fitness center will feature MyRide indoor cycling, yoga mats, and a ballet barre.

Project lease-up is expected to begin in early 2017, with the first units expected to deliver in spring 2017.

Founded in 2011, StreetLights Residential specializes in high-end, new urbanist apartment homes and mixed-use developments. They have properties in Dallas, Austin, Houston, San Diego, and Nashville, with an office opening in Phoenix.

Other StreetLights projects include The McKenzie, a 22-story high-rise residential development with 183 units, at the corner of Harvard Avenue and Tracy Street in Dallas; The Jordan, a 23-story high-rise residential development with 212 units, off McKinney Avenue at the Maple/Routh connection and Thomas Avenue in the Uptown area of Dallas; The Kelton at Clearfork, a four-story residential community with 392 units in Fort Worth; and, The Kathryn - The Canals at Grand Park, the first phase of a three-phase masterplan in Frisco.
