Real Estate: District Lofts Open in Morrisville
Morrisville, NC – Community leaders faced rain and thunder to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony for Morrisville’s new apartments, District Lofts, noting how the Park West development marks something unique in the town.
118 New Apartments
The lobby of the new District Lofts was filled with business owners and local government figures for the opening party Friday April 22, 2016. The site consists of two buildings, each with different types of apartments, ranging from one to two bedroom units or one bedroom with a den.
Sarah Gaskill, Morrisville Chamber of Commerce president, said the quality of the finished product is impressive.
“This is what a community like Morrisville needs because of the level of growth,” Gaskill said. “And it’s a compliment to Park West.”
Construction of the 118-unit complex started roughly one year ago.
At the ribbon-cutting, David Brunner, general manager of Casto, the developer of Park West, noted how the lofts’ appearance was meant to evoke an urban look in a suburban market.
“It’s new, but it’s timely,” said Sarah Gaskill. “This is what people are gravitating toward.”
The lofts also feature several lounges and a communal gym and clubhouse, in addition to other amenities.
The District Lofts are in the Park West Village, near the intersection of Chapel Hill Road and NW Cary Parkway.

There are many missed opportunities at Park West. Community green space with a few more trees and a little less asphalt? Less sprawl so people could actually walk from the movies to Target with purchases – and without getting run over? More work done on infrastructure to minimize the crappy traffic impact – which hurts Cary far more than Morrisville?
Just think how much nicer Park West could have been with more of this as well as some office. Instead it was NIMBYed to death until its a shining example of a missed opportunity.
They missed the opportunity to create a true mixed use project. Such a large portion of Park West is designated to big box commercial and restaurants. I do like these new apartments and agree it could have more than it is.
