Springs, the Erickson Living community in North Dallas, recently unveiled plans for its newest residence building at an exclusive event for priority list members.

“Our community is growing, and we’re excited to share the plans with our priority list,” says Sales Director Jennifer O’Reilly. “Highland Springs is 100% sold out, and right now we don’t have inventory to keep up with demand for new apartment homes. Many of our priority list members have been waiting for the right apartment.”

Spacious floor plans

The new residence building, Willow Ridge, will feature 99 apartments, under-building parking, a conference center, and wildflower gardens. The building, scheduled to open in spring 2015, will offer 14 never-before-seen floor plans. 

“Our design team considered feedback from current residents and priority list members as they designed Willow Ridge,” says O’Reilly. “The new floor plans offer open-concept living areas, generous storage spaces, and most have the option of a patio, balcony, or screened-in porch.”

Beautiful finishes, including granite counters, stainless-steel appliances, and specialty flooring and lighting options, enhance the appeal of the new apartments. Studio SIX5, a design firm out of Austin that specializes in senior living communities, partnered with the creative team at Highland Springs to select the interior finishes for Willow Ridge.

“Our goal was to create a living space that’s emerging, bright, and engaging,” says Anna Kurkalova, designer with Studio SIX5. “We want residents to feel refreshed and at home in their apartments.”

Other notable features of the new apartment homes include side-by-side, full-size washers and dryers. A convenient powder room is included in every one-bedroom home, and most master bathrooms have dual sinks.

“We have nearly 300 people on our priority list, so we anticipate these new apartments will fill up quickly,” says O’Reilly. “I encourage those who are interested in moving to Willow Ridge to make an appointment with Sales Counselor Christina Christie.”

Motivated to move

John Wolfe and his wife Noreen joined the Highland Springs priority list in January 2011. The couple currently lives in Denton and is considering a move to a retirement community.

“I don’t want to take care of a yard anymore, and Noreen doesn’t want to cook,” says John. “A move to Highland Springs would solve both problems.”

As John and Noreen studied the new floor plans, they began to feel the excitement build.

“I like the open feeling of these apartments, and I like the patio option with many of the floor plans,” says John. “One of them could very well be our next home.”
