Construction has officially commenced at 1301 Richmond Ave. on The Muse Museum District, a 270-unit "luxury multifamily community" from Dallas-based developers Behringer Harvard and Trammell Crow Residential.

The developers were required to raze the Andover Richmond Apartments, a large and surprisingly well-updated apartment complex built in the 1960s, to make way for the new development — one that, we must argue, isn't really part of the Museum District proper.

Four-stories of "condominium-quality" apartments will be built over two levels of parking. Residents should expect units with "eight-foot doors, ceiling heights of more than nine feet, and full-size washers and dryers," plus top-of-the-line kitchens and "oversize Roman tubs."

Common area amenities include a cyber cafe, a business center, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a luxury swimming pool and a dog-amenity station.
