DALLAS—Mill Creek Residential Trust has partnered with the largest property owner in the city’s Knox Street district to build a new 208-unit residential complex. The apartment development will replace a recently demolished building at North Central Expressway and Hester Street, according to a report in the Dallas Morning News.
