Take a sneak peek at the apartment high-rise planned next to the historic Dallas High School

Developer Matthews Southwest has given a first look at the apartment community it hopes to build next door to the historic downtown Dallas High School.
Matthews Southwest just completed a $50 million restoration of the 1907 school at Pearl and Bryan streets.
Now developer Jack Matthews and his partners are working on a high-rise apartment project on the same block that would include rental units for moderate and low-income residents.
The 15-story building at 2400 Bryan is planned for about 230 apartments — more than 100 of which are reserved for residents earning between 30 and 60 percent of the area's median household income.
A parking garage and almost 10,000 square feet of retail are also planned for the triangular shaped building, which overlooks the U.S. Highway 75 overpass on the eastern edge of downtown Dallas.
Matthews Southwest has also left a site for a future office building in its plans.
