Dallas, Texas/200,000 square feet
Designed in the Spanish Mission style, the Mansion Residences consists of 200,000 square feet of condominium space over 14 floors, provided in a shell condition for finish out by individual unit owners. Each floor of the tower can be utilized as one unit, or demised into two units. BOKA Powell provided complete architectural design, production and coordination for the project, working closely with Rosewood Property Company, the Dallas Historic Landmark Commission and the Oak Lawn Neighborhood Association in developing a building design that would complement the existing Mansion Restaurant and surrounding neighborhood.
The building incorporates two levels of secured below grade parking, with a valet station and extensive security monitoring for ease of accessibility and safety. A connecting link to the hotel and restaurant provides direct access to services from those facilities, and incorporates a health club and beauty salon. Within the tower itself, an innovative 16” raised floor system is utilized throughout for the routing of all mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems within each unit, without disruption to units above or below. Kitchen and bath facilities can be located virtu-ally anywhere on a floor, allowing for maximum planning flexibility. A moisture detection system is incorporated below all raised floor areas to allow for the quick location and repair of leaks.
The tower is designed to minimize noise infiltration between units, as well as from operations from nearby Love Field Airport , through the use of a post tensioned concrete frame, acoustically insulated glazing and insulated concrete masonry unit wall construction.
