PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: AMLI Fountain Place
Gerber® Faucets Add Elegance and Splendor to Prominent New Dallas Apartment Skyscraper
One of the most desirable rental properties now available in downtown Dallas is making its debut with a spectacular, eye-catching design, both inside and out. Set in the heart of the Arts District, the new AMLI Fountain Place is considered the city's most architecturally significant apartment tower. The 45-story building also is the biggest addition to the city's skyline since 1987. A total of 367 modern residences and penthouse suites feature the newest amenities and creature comforts - and each bathroom is outfitted with Gerber's WaterSense®-certified Mid-Town® faucets & tub and shower trim powered by Gerber's innovative Treysta® valve.
Construction of the 562-foot tall structure was completed in the first quarter of 2021, and leasing is now underway for the apartments which offer stunning views. The building is outfitted with the same type of glass used on the adjacent, 720-foot tall Fountain Place, which earned critical acclaim from the architectural world when it was erected in the 1980s. That skyscraper has been featured prominently on television for many years, from the days of the 1980s CBS hit show Dallas and several movies, to major sporting events that use a blimp to showcase the city's skyline.
"Our Mid-Town collection is a perfect complement to the sleek, reflective, contemporary architecture, and it is exciting to be part of the project." said Katie Hayes, Gerber's Director of Product Management - Fittings.
Austin, Texas-based architect Page Sutherland Page designed the LEED-certified building, which includes a pool deck with outdoor lounge areas on top of the nine-story parking garage that is built into the base of the tower. Forth Worth-based TD Industries, a facilities and mechanical services construction company, handled installation of the Gerber products for the 1-3 bedroom units.
Early walkthrough previews indicate Gerber's Mid-Town two-handle widespread bathroom sink faucet and tub & shower trim are earning high praise from prospective renters for the contemporary and sleek style. The sink faucet features include a durable ceramic disc valve for drip-free performance, and a clear, non-splash Laminar flow water stream. The faucet also has a metal touchdown drain for fast draining and quick installation.
"This property is a prime example of our commitment to the plumbing contractor. Gerber has a great reputation because of our loyalty to the plumbing community, and wholesalers specifically," explained Hayes who has been with the company since 2016.
"I think our product advantages stem from the styles and choices we offer and the great performance they deliver. Whether it is a toilet, sink, or a kitchen faucet, we've found that our products exceed expectations because they have all of the same characteristics of higher priced competitor models. Match those expectations with the easy installation and services capabilities, and it only makes sense to go with Gerber."
