A 22-story apartment tower will be part of a residential and commercial development at SMU/Mockingbird Station, according to new details released by the developer, Trammell Crow Company.

The project, called Mockingbird Station East, will include four towers, two of which are residential.

The first apartment building, designed by Dallas architect GFF, would include 481 rental units and be built on a surface parking lot on the east end of the site, near Kroger, the Dallas Morning News reported.

The second residential tower will be located next door. It will be completed in further phase of construction, according to the Morning News.

Dallas Area Rapid Transit approved the development in December and plans to lease the land for 99 years to Trammell Crow for the project.

The first phase includes constructing a three-level underground parking garage to replace the surface lots, where the new towers will be built. Once completed, work can begin on the towers.

The newspaper reported that GFF presented preliminary plans for the first apartment building to the City of Dallas’ ​Urban ​Design Peer Review Panel.
