A Dallas real estate company plans to build modular homes across Texas at a new facility in Grand Prairie with a goal of building up to 300 homes each year.
Oaxaca Interests LLC, a Dallas-based real estate, design, engineering and investment firm, will open a manufacturing facility dedicated to creating modular homes for consumers and developers across Texas, the company said Tuesday. Oaxaca is also known for the popular Sylvan Thirty residential area west of downtown.
The facility, known as HiFAB, will span 7 acres at 1771 Robinson Road in Grand Prairie. It will build prefabricated houses called haciendas, intended as an alternative to more expensive traditional houses. Two bedroom homes start at $249,000 and three bedroom homes start at $375,000.
The homes will be a Texas exclusive and will launch in the first quarter of 2023, but they are available to order now. Oaxaca just completed phase three of a residential community in West Dallas. This development served as a test run for the designs, which averaged approximately 1,570 square feet for two bedroom homes to 1,825 square feet for three bedroom homes.
“With HiFAB, we hope to lead the modular home sector in Texas. By partnering again with Lake Flato, we are able to offer people highly designed yet functional homes produced in our 7-acre facility,” said Brent Jackson, founder of Oaxaca Interests and HiFAB, in a statement. “A simple design is difficult to achieve, but it allows us to focus on the details to achieve a cleaner, more efficient way of life. This uncluttered design also allows for a lock-and-leave lifestyle of traveling the world and then returning to a beautiful home to catch some air and unwind.”
Lake Flato Architects, a San Antonio-based architecture firm, will design the homes. Prices include design, assembly, on-site delivery and set-up. Customers can customize their homes with different floorplans, tiles, paint colors and other finishes and follow the construction process online from start to finish.
Ted Flato, founding partner of Lake Flato Architects and board member of HiFAB, said the prefabs were designed with qualities of “nature, place and restraint” that emulate their early home designs nearly 40 years ago. The homes will include sustainability features such as UV light air purification systems, fresh air exchange systems and eco-friendly paints.
