Maple Terrace Apartments

-A A +A
1925, Alfred C. Bossom with Thomson and Swaine; 1936 landscape, Cornelius Zanbergen. 3001 Maple Ave.

This eight-story, eighty-unit apartment building, originally a residential hotel, has been home to many of Dallas’s business people, artists, and visiting celebrities. The U-shaped concrete-framed building is clad in stucco with Spanish Colonial features. New York City–based Bossom incorporated many features of elite New York residences, including only a few units per floor for privacy and cross ventilation and small kitchens, but with central food service available. The five-acre tract was landscaped in 1936 to include tennis courts and a playground. A series of owners after 1993 have continued to operate Maple Terrace as apartments.

Nearby at 2927 Maple, the eleven-story Le Méridien Dallas (former Stoneleigh Hotel; 1923, F. J. Woerner) was the first residential hotel in Dallas and the first with air-conditioned guestrooms.
