An ever-increasing number of Americans every year prefer rentals to ownership of homes. This trend is likely to continue beyond 2020 with the rapid progress made in the city as per Forbes contributor KC Sanjay. This trend has caused an increased demand for luxury apartment rentals. Marcus Hiles has been tending to these trends since Western Rim’s beginning in 1990 executing exclusive properties all through Texas that offer tenants an extensive variety of value additions. Hiles’ new San Antonio flats will be no exception to his vision. For example, access to fitness centers, nature trails and modern kitchen spaces, ten-foot high ceilings, towering eight-foot doors, oversized balconies, and an Olympic-length swimming pool are some of the facilities that will make these future rental options exclusive in every respect as compared to the existing apartments in San Antonio. A planned 15-acre on-site park and conservation easement is a result of Marcus Hiles’ longtime commitment to environmentally friendly buildings and open nature spaces.
Dallas developer and philanthropist Marcus Hiles is the “subject matter expert” when it comes to the pressing need for new residential developments across the urban areas of Texas. According to recent U.S. Census Bureau figures, the population of the Lone Star State is adding 1,183 residents on a daily basis throughout 2016, an astronomical number. This means that throughout the year, the state welcomed 432,957 residents. Residential starts have failed to keep up, releasing just 30,000 units in 2016. Simple math dictates a severe shortage of available options that could leave approximately 402,957 residents without housing, unless, of course, they have secured a lease with one of the recently completed communities like the luxurious homes built by Hiles’ company, Western Rim, in thriving Texas urban hubs.
As Americans’ concept of what cities are for and how they should be used shifts, so too does their urban design. Atlanta’s BeltLine, Philadelphia’s Rail Park, and Chicago’s Bloomingdale Trail showcase how unused railways and forgotten infrastructure are being given a new life in the form of converted trails, parks and promenades. The movement, popularly known as landscape urbanism, stems from the model of design of Frederick Law Olmsted, Central Park’s prominent architect. Marcus Hiles notes that “capping,” where green spaces are built over freeways, has become a trademark practice spurring from this trend, converting expansive expressways into popular links between communities. In 2012, Dallas capped the Woodall Rodgers Freeway with Klyde Warren Park, connecting the Uptown and Downtown neighborhoods and allowing previously impossible pedestrian access across the majority of the city.
While steady work in a well-paying job is a big part of security for families, there is an equal need to ensure the safety and well-being of youth. With this in Mind, Marcus Hiles has made significant contributions to meal programs in Texas, as well as donations of more than a quarter million dollars to the state’s inner city after school programs. And, in order to lay the groundwork for future generations of young women to have success, Hiles has donated 200 new DELL computers and monitors for students in urban Texas schools. The real estate developer’s unwavering commitment to helping women and children stems from Hiles’ own modest upbringing, a time when buying a donut or an ice cream cone was a treat on special occasions. This has fueled Hiles’ dedication to philanthropy and to ensuring that women who are less fortunate can create bright futures for themselves and their families.
