Billingsley Company brings NYC-Inspired Living to Dallas

Dallas, Texas – (June 21, 2016) – New York City, known for its romantic industrial architecture, brick detail, metal-framed windows and walk-up style housing, is one of kind. Billingsley Company is bringing that same architectural charm to DFW in Farmers Branch, Texas, with The Brickyard – their new multifamily apartment community. 

The Brickyard encompasses the best parts of New York architecture with all-brick buildings, metal awnings and natural lighting pouring in through the large arched windows, but at a fraction of the cost of living in New York City.

In Manhattan, the cost of living is more than double the national average: The average rent for a two-bedroom apartment in the Lower East Side is $3,558, according to the First quarter 2016 Citi Habitats market report, roughly equal to the entire monthly income of the typical U.S. worker.

Additionally, car owners pay an average parking rate of $533 per month in downtown Manhattan (Colliers International), and groceries cost between 28 and 39 percent more than the national average, depending on where residents live, according to the Council for Community and Economic Research.

Being in the Dallas-Ft. Worth Metroplex, the lower cost of living is one of the benefits of relocating to the area. However, locals don’t have to give up style for affordability. The Brickyard brings the Brooklyn charm and New York design to the Dallas area without the heavy price tag. Current pricing for The Brickyard ranges from $995 to $1910 per month (as of June 15, 2016).

Sumner Billingsley, a managing partner on The Brickyard project, took her experience living in the West Village in New York and translated it to fill a void in the Dallas market. “As a former resident of New York, I wanted to bring the rich neighborhood feel of the West Village and the Bowery to Dallas but at a price that was right for us. I have been told that ‘quality is remembered long after the price is forgotten.’ So our sole focus is to deliver a fantastic product, and I’m damned if I am not going to deliver it at a great price.”

Among the amenities featured in The Brickyard:

  • The Firehouse Clubroom
  • The Grind Fitness Center
  • The Ozone-filtered Pool, coming in August
  • Two parks named after New York City parks: Gramercy Garden and Mulberry Park
  • The Brickyard Leasing Center
