Kilby Recognized as a ‘Best Urban Multifamily Project’ Finalist in North Texas by the Dallas Business Journal

The signature awards program honored the state-of-the-art, upscale apartment community built by KWA Construction in the $600 million Frisco Square.

Kilby, a high-end residential apartment community built by KWA Construction in the $600-million Frisco Square in Frisco, Texas, was honored as a finalist of the ‘Best Real Estate Deals of 2020’ by the Dallas Business Journal. The four-story, 258-unit complex was the first multifamily development in Texas by Toll Brothers Apartment Living®— a rental subsidiary of Toll Brothers, Inc.— and partner Daiwa House Texas Inc., a subsidiary of the largest single-family homebuilder in Japan, Daiwa House Group. DBJ’s annual awards program commemorates stakeholders and dealmakers that cultivated the best transactions and projects in North Texas during the prior year.

“When building Kilby, our goal was to create a one-of-a-kind masterwork of quality construction and detailed craftsmanship that would set an example for Frisco Square as a whole and demonstrate why Frisco is one of the fastest-growing cities in America,” said Brian Webster, President of KWA Construction. “To see the dedicated precision and hard work that went into constructing Kilby recognized as one of the best developments in North Texas is truly a pleasure to witness and a testament to the high caliber performance of the KWA team and all involved.”

Designed by HEDK Architects with the goal to complement the industrial history of Frisco and echo its relationship with The Frisco Railroad, the 279,288-square-foot Kilby community was thoughtfully orchestrated to have an ‘elevated industrial’ aesthetic. Interior design firm Mary Cook Associates carefully incorporated the iconic railway look into the interiors, with strategic elements selected in the programming, finishes and furniture. The aesthetic approach continues into the units themselves with key design decisions that merge with the community’s overall layout.

Kilby offers high-end amenities including a complimentary coffee bar, community-wide WiFi, a conference lounge with a catering kitchen, a club area with a dramatic double-sided fireplace and a bar and social lounge featuring draft beer and television screens. Outdoor features include an expansive boutique pool with tanning ledges and poolside cabanas, a patio with a bar, grilling stations and fire pits as well as a dog run and pet spa. In addition, the apartments offer a standalone two-story fitness center with Wellbeats™ virtual fitness, an outdoor yoga deck and more. 

Now in its 29th year, the Dallas Business Journal’s ‘Best Real Estate Deals’ has honored over 500 extraordinary projects that have shaped the landscape of the growing North Texas region into what we know today. This year, the signature awards recognize outstanding projects or deals initiated in 2020 (ground broken or lease signed), active in 2020 (under construction) or completed in 2020 (took occupancy). Properties involved in qualified deals must be located within Collin, Cooke, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Grayson, Johnson, Kaufman, Parker, Rockwall, Tarrant and Wise counties.
