DALLAS, TX – Toll Brothers Apartment Living, the rental subsidiary of Toll Brothers, the nation’s leading builder of luxury homes, announces the grand opening of Aster, the company’s new 22-story, 270-unit luxury high-rise apartment building in the Turtle Creek neighborhood of Dallas, TX.
The firm recently hosted a grand opening celebration at the property with senior executives from Toll Brothers and its Apartment Living division, along with Aster’s development partners, leaders of local civic and neighborhood associations, local elected and appointed officials, and members of the media. Following a cocktail hour, opening remarks, and exclusive tours, the celebration continued with a party for current Aster residents.
“As our flagship new community in Texas, Aster stands tall as the premier rental community in the Turtle Creek and Oak Lawn neighborhoods,” said Charles Elliott, President of Toll Brothers Apartment Living. “Aster represents the very best of what Toll Brothers Apartment Living stands for — from its design and brand to its exceptional resident experience. This project embodies a new standard of luxury development that we will build upon with several upcoming projects throughout Texas, and elsewhere across the United States.”
Designed by WDG Architecture, the 22-story, 270-unit luxury high-rise apartment building is situated on Congress Avenue between Oak Lawn Avenue and Turtle Creek. Aster’s construction began in 2019 and was completed in 2021, offering first occupancy in October. With a name inspired by the iconic Texas wildflower, Aster draws on deep roots in Dallas history while also joining the prestigious Turtle Creek neighborhood with a vibrant, sophisticated new persona.
“Aster is located in a decidedly different area from the busy commercial districts in which many others are building,” said Tommy Rhodus, Texas Regional Director of Toll Brothers Apartment Living. “Instead, Aster sits in a much quieter and more established residential neighborhood. We focused intently on designing a neighborhood-scale building by setting it back and surrounding it with townhome-style apartments along the street and a corner park.”
Aster includes 260 studio, 1-, 2-, and 3-bedroom residences, as well as 10 2-story penthouse residences, about 20,000 square feet of interior and exterior amenity space, and a 6-level above- and below-grade structured parking garage with 418 spaces, including 14 EV charging stations. Throughout the property residents enjoy custom lighting, high-end finishes, secure keyless entry, and Wi-Fi.
First- and second-floor amenities include a concierge lobby, conservatory, library, package room, and pet spa. On the fourth-floor amenity deck, residents can enjoy a clubroom bar and lounge featuring a fully equipped kitchen, 2-story fitness center, coworking space, and exterior amenity deck featuring a pool with infinity-edge water feature and custom trellis with waterfall feature, grill stations, outdoor lounge seating and lawn games. On the seventeenth floor, resident amenities include a sky lounge with expansive views of the Dallas skyline, private dining room, sky deck with lounge seating and television, and sports lounge with multi-sports simulator.
The apartments feature luxurious wide-plank walnut flooring, quartz countertops, Calacatta marble backsplashes, European-style cabinets with soft-close doors and drawers, stainless steel appliances, custom lighting fixtures throughout, manual roller shade window treatments, walk-in closets, smart thermostats, and private balconies and terraces. Exterior-facing units feature private fenced yards.
Penthouses located at the top of the tower introduce 2-story floor plans with double-height living and dining areas and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, appliances from Sub-Zero and Wolf, faucets and plumbing fixtures from Brizo, contemporary apron-front kitchen sink, wet bar with wine chiller, spa-inspired showers and freestanding bathtubs, and mechanical roller shades window treatments in living, dining, and primary bathrooms.
Aster is the third project completed by Toll Brothers Apartment Living in Texas, following Kilby in Frisco and Westerly in Dallas, both of which were sold in 2020 and 2021 respectively. Aster represents the continued rapid expansion of Toll Brothers Apartment Living in Texas, with the firm currently poised to begin construction on nearly 3,000 residences across eight projects anticipated to be actively under construction across the state before the end of 2022.
