A new Uptown high rise is opening its doors.
The 20-story M-Line Tower on McKinney Avenue has been in the works for almost two years.
Built on the site of the popular Café Express restaurant at Bowen and McKinney, the tower includes 261 apartments and 11,636 square feet of retail space.
“We began welcoming our first residents into their apartment homes this weekend and are quickly wrapping up construction on the remaining units in the tower, which should fully deliver before the end of the year,” Joel Behrens with developer High Street Residential said in a statement.
Café Express and Blue Sushi Sake Grill will open in the ground floor of the building in October.
High Street built the apartment project in partnership with Principal Real Estate Investors.
The rental community includes a business center, conference rooms and personal study areas, fitness center, a sun deck with a resort-style swimming pool and a “sky lounge” on the 20th floor.
Rents range in price from more than $1,600 for a 581-square-foot studio unit to $12,555 a month for a 2,511 square-foot pent house.
M-Line Tower is one of more than a dozen new high-rise residential buildings in the Dallas area.
