CultureMap | January 15, 2020

Frisco has been booming lately, making it no surprise that people are clamoring to live and work in Dallas’ neighbor to the north. At Waterford Market, they can do both.

The stylish apartment community not only offer spacious floorplans and awesome amenities, but also a coworking space on the first floor called 25N Coworking. Add in its incredibly central location to all that Frisco has to offer, and you’ve got an ideal combination of live, work, and play.

Here’s a look at what you’ll find at Waterford Market:

Room for everyone
There are apartment homes designed to suit every type of tenant, from studios to one-, two-, and three-bedroom layouts. The professionally designed interiors have all the luxe perks, from hardwood-inspired vinyl floors to in-unit washers and dryers to USB outlets to Salto’s Keyless Fob Access System for extra convenience. The high-end kitchens come complete with Whirlpool stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, undermount stainless steel sinks, and built-in wine racks, while custom elfa closets in the bedrooms make getting ready in the morning a breeze. Oh, and Waterford Market is pet-friendly, too.

More than 30,000 square feet of amenities
Imagine working out in a state-of-the-art fitness studio outfitted with Peloton bikes, that has rolling overhead doors that open to the resort-style pool and courtyard. Or lounging by the fire pit while cooking on the barbecue grills and watching TV, or playing billiards, shuffleboard, and Golden Tee in the game room. How about taking advantage of the on-demand dry cleaning service, WiFi cafes with java bar, tech lounge with private work pods, self-service dog wash, bike storage and repair area, valet trash service, package lockers, and electric-hybrid car charging stations? Waterford Market has all this and more.

All about the location
As Frisco keeps growing, so do its options for shopping, dining, and entertainment. Just steps from your front door are Frisco Fresh Market for groceries; Toyota Stadium, home of FC Dallas; and Frisco Square, where you’ll find Frisco Heritage Village and Museum, the Sci-Tech Discovery Center, and Frisco Library in addition to plenty of boutiques and restaurants, all in a pedestrian-friendly layout.

Get down to (co)work
25N offers professionally designed shared workspace, private offices, and meeting rooms, with flexible pricing discounts (up to 50 percent) for Waterford Market residents.

Waterford Bay – Finance and Commerce

Housing makes a splash in ’19

Finance & Commerce | William Morris | January 2, 2020

Some multifamily housing projects are part of a larger mixed-use development that will define neighborhoods or entire communities for decades to come. Some take advantage of challenging properties and their surrounding environment, natural and manmade, in creative and intriguing ways. Some are just really, really big.

The decade closed out with another busy year for Twin Cities apartment (and occasionally condominium) developers. The following 10 projects, each for its own reasons, are among the most interesting or significant developments we learned about in 2019. Some remain on the drawing board, while others are well into entitlements or have even begun construction. Each has the potential to reshape the housing market and future direction of its corner of the metro.

Name: Waterford Bay

Developer: Stoneleigh Cos.

Address: 380 Randolph Ave., St. Paul

Unit count: 242

Cost: $60 million

Description:  Waterford Bay is the first Minnesota project for Chicago-based Stoneleigh Cos., and the company picked a challenging site: the former Island Station power plant on north bank of the Mississippi River. Plans call for 242 mostly studio and one-bedroom apartments as well as trail connections and even a possible kayak landing to take advantage of the riverfront. Construction began in November, with Golden Valley-based Benson-Orth as contractor, and Stoneleigh hopes to have foundation work done by March and finish construction in late 2021.
