New Alliance development with smart home technology
Tacara Village, a 332-unit multifamily project, will be the first community to integrate smart home technology from the ground up at AllianceTexas, a 26,000-acre master-planned development in north Fort Worth.
Built by Hillwood, phase one of Tacara Village will open late this summer, with a planned completion by early 2020, Hillwood said in a news release.
Tacara Village will feature some of the latest smart home devices that can be remotely monitored and controlled for ease of use including smart locks, thermostats, light switches and building/amenity access, the news release said.
Hillwood is partnering with Dwelo, a smart apartment service provider, to create a simple, seamless home automation experience that will allow residents to control their smart in-unit devices through a fully integrated phone application capable of supporting both embedded technologies and personal digital assistants, like Google Home and Amazon Alexa.
“Technology is at the root of everything these days and it’s important that the multifamily industry starts embracing the platforms available for home automation,” Mark McHenry, managing director of Hillwood’s multifamily department, said in the release.
“Tacara Village is the first of many planned communities that our team is thoughtfully embedding premium, sophisticated amenities to help our residents and property managers experience a connected environment,” McHenry said.
Backed by Perot Jain, a Dallas-based, early stage venture capital firm co-founded by Anurag Jain and Hillwood Chairman Ross Perot Jr., Dwelo is one of several innovative companies to partner with Hillwood to develop technology solutions in the AllianceTexas corridor.
At the heart of the development sits a signature clubhouse with a co-working lounge, a state-of-the-art gym, a yoga studio and a host of billiards and shuffleboard tables. Tacara Village also offers residents high-end outdoor amenities to promote collaboration such as a resort-inspired pool and a courtyard with cabanas and outdoor kitchens. Furry friends are also welcome and can take advantage of the two pet parks available onsite.
The modern multifamily units are available in 14 different floor plans and include two color scheme options for luxury finishes.
Tacara Village is located within Alliance Town Center, the 900-acre mixed-use complex home to quality dining and entertainment options such as the recently opened First Watch and Mod Pizza.
Tacara Village follows Hillwood’s recent announcement of establishing the AllianceTexas Mobility Innovation Zone, creating a testbed for future transportation technologies and platforms.
Tacara Village is located at 10401 N. Riverside Drive, Fort Worth, TX 76244, and currently accepting preleases for late summer 2019.
