Though tbh the lack of design review is a godsend for TX, and I wouldn't recommend the tradeoff.
You live in low income housing? That's fine, I've lived in low income housing before. Those townhomes are actually quite beautiful. Those Zillow pictures don't do them justice at all. Before the first phase sold out, they had real photographs on Zillow, not CG and Google Earth style images.

The benefits to the current APT layout is that it integrates so well with structures (and is for the most part hidden). It could have been placed along the roofs of the Music Factory for better effect.

The Jefferson Eastshore apartments will be built near the Irving Convention Center and the new Music Factory entertainment and retail complex.
The 286-unit development is off Northwest Highway and has access to DART's commuter rail line connecting Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and downtown Dallas.
Developer KDC will break ground next week for its more than $100 million Irving campus for Pioneer Natural Resources.
The 10-story office project will be the first phase of the $1 billion Hidden Ridge development in Las Colinas.
The Pioneer complex is part of the more than 150-acre mixed-use development located west of State Highway 114 and will open in 2019.
The signature bridge, which is composed of five bridges that merge into one bridge, will span State Highway 114, giving the 78-acre city-owned development site direct access to a proposed Dallas Area Rapid Transit rail station.
Irving's Chief Development Officer Doug Janeway said the bridge is a critical piece to a number of properties, including the Texas Stadium site.
"This will open up the entire area and create a direct link to the property from (State Highway) 114," Janeway said in a previous interview.
The new bridge will replace the famed Texas Plaza Drive Bridge, which was torn down in 2010 to make way for the expansion of Highway 114 and Loop 12 by the Texas Department of Transportation. At that time, Irving also added the DART Orange Line to the city’s landscape.
The bridge will also give the former Texas Stadium site access to a yet-to-be developed DART rail station, tentatively called the Loop 12 Station, and give pedestrians the ability to safely cross Highway 114.
