Crane Watch update: 1,500 new apartment units planned in North Texas

Despite North Texas leading the nation in new apartment units under construction with 40,349, according to new data from RealPage Inc., more apartments are still being proposed on a weekly basis.

Within the last two weeks, plans for five new apartment complexes have been revealed through documents submitted to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation. They indicate more growth in suburban markets as well as more options in familiar urban markets. The five new projects represent nearly 1,500 new units.

The following is a list of those projects and what we know about them so far. Projects that appear on TDLR are typically in the early stages and, while they include estimated groundbreaking and completion dates, could be months away from actually happening. Still, most of these projects do eventually come to fruition.
