Renters will soon have a new reason to search for apartments in Allen.
Allen City Council voted to change the zoning of property on Andrews Parkway from light industrial to multi-family residential during the June 28 meeting. This change opens the way for a new luxury apartment complex.
The proposed complex, called “Luxe Allen,” will consist of 445 units. It features an attached parking garage and climate controlled hallways. Luxe Allen will be built adjacent to Top Golf and within walking distance of The Village at Allen. A line of trees will serve as a screen between the complex and Top Golf.
Bo Bass, Director for Community Development for the City of Allen, says the building will have an architecturally modern style, similar to what one might see at The Shops of Legacy or in Uptown.
Construction is expected to begin in the first quarter of 2017, and should be finished the following year.
