03/24/2008

Richardson’s famed “Telecom Corridor” is in the midst of revitalization as the first new apartments, shops and restaurants near opening at Eastside, a new 14.8 acre mixed-use development. Eastside is transforming an existing office building and parking lot into a live-work-play destination for urban living along US-75 and the DART line.

Post Eastside®
 opened a temporary leasing center near the site in early March to begin leasing the first apartments, available May 1. Retail space is also expected to debut over the next few months, bringing Panera, Boudreaux’s Cajun Kitchen, Dr. Goad Dentistry and Frost Bank to Eastside. Additional retail tenant announcements are expected in the near future.

 
The development, located at the southeast corner of Campbell and Central Expressway, will offer many new opportunities for professionals working in surrounding offices.
 
“Post Eastside is an unprecedented offering of luxury urban living in Richardson,” said David Ward, executive vice president, regional investment director Southwest region, Post Properties, Inc., the apartment developer for the project. “The community integrates the convenience of transportation, the luxury finishes of city living and lush greenspaces in one of Dallas’s finest suburban communities.”

Post Properties, Inc. (NYSE: PPS), Skyrise Properties, and Greenway Investment Company, broke ground on Eastside in November 2006. The master-planned development will include 80,000 square feet of retail, nearly 200,000 square feet of office space and 435 apartment homes surrounding a one-acre central park with a fountain and amphitheatre. An existing Class-A office tower and parking deck have been integrated into the master development in a seamless effort to complete the master plan.

Post Eastside will bring spacious one- and two-bedroom apartments in four, four-story buildings. The first building, delivering May 1, will offer loft-style apartments followed by a mix of traditional luxury apartments and lofts in the second and third buildings.
 
Residents may choose from a wide variety of floorplans ranging from 503 square feet to 1,436 square feet, with rent from $685 to $1,935 per month. Each home boasts high ceilings, stainless steel kitchen appliances, granite countertops, maple cabinetry and washer/dryer connections. Hardwood floors are available in select apartments.
 
An emphasis on green spaces makes Eastside unique among Richardson developments. Post Eastside residents will enjoy six gathering courtyards with barbeque grills in addition to the one-acre central park.
 
Residents will also enjoy signature Post amenities, including two swimming pools, an outdoor cabana, club room and gourmet kitchen, free Wi-Fi in common areas, a fully-equipped fitness center and Internet Café.

Located just blocks away from two of DART’s light rail stations, the development will utilize an urban, pedestrian-friendly design featuring a blend of building styles and beautiful landscaping.
