Phoenix-based NexMetro Communities has opened its third Avilla community in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Avilla Heritage in Grand Prairie, TX will offer private luxury rental homes to consumers seeking a new rental experience without the burdens often associated with homeownership. 

“As the DFW-area continues to grow at a rapid pace, we consistently see the need for a more desirable alternative to the typical rental experience, said Ryan Griffis, vice president of operations for the NexMetro Dallas Metro Division. “Consumers are looking at homeownership differently since the crash of 2008 and we’re excited about the opportunity to provide a unique experience within an industry that is often very cookie cutter.”

Avilla Heritage represents Nexmetro’s continued expansion into the Southwest, as well as other sunbelt locations throughout the U.S. The company’s development team is currently working on several additional Texas locations including; Fort Worth, Arlington and Celina. In May 2019, the company celebrated having more than $1 Billion under asset management or in escrow, making it one of the largest single-family rental home developers in the nation. 

The gated residential community is in the heart of the highly-rated Grand Prairie Independent School District. Outdoor recreation, entertainment centers, shopping, and dining can all be found within minutes of the property. Avilla Heritage is also located within minutes of the George Bush Turnpike, I-70 and the 360.

Priced competitively with surrounding A-class apartments, the rental rates during pre-leasing begin at $1,300 for a one-bedroom unit. Floor plans and additional details are available by visiting Avilla Homes at or contacting a leasing consultant at 469-844-7975. Tours can be scheduled online or by visiting the property, located at 2030 S. Forum Drive, Grand Prairie, TX 75052.
