It’s common for renters to go online and peruse floor plans when considering a certain community, but the dimensions of a room are often inadvertently misleading. Marcus Hiles, Dallas real estate developer and CEO of Western Rim Property Services, notes that determining a property’s cubic footage – length times width times height of each room – provides a more accurate picture of the townhome or apartment’s potential to deliver tenant satisfaction. “Ceiling height creates ambience in a living space,” Hiles notes. Total cubic footage of a 10-foot by 12-foot room eight foot ceilings measures 120 square feet and 960 cubic feet. If the ceiling is raised to ten feet, the room volume increases to 1,200 cubic feet. “The standard eight feet can make residents feel boxed in, while 18-foot rooms tend to be cold and cavernous,” points out Hiles. His luxurious apartments and townhomes feature ten-foot ceilings, which create the right balance of spaciousness and comfort.
One of Western Rim Property Services’ most popular developments is the Mansions at Stone Hill, located just north of Austin, Texas. Marcus Hiles, founder and CEO of Western Rim Properties, designed the Mansions at Stone Hill to be a perfect complement between an energetic culture and the resilient beauty of the Texas landscape. Here, residents can enjoy the feel of a rural life, yet a vibrant, vivacious city is just a few miles down the road.
The Mansions at Stone Hill feature a 370-unit apartment complex with options available for both luxury and senior living. Hiles and Western Rim selected this Pflugerville location due to its proximity to Austin as well as important social locations like Home Depot, Target, Best Buy, 24-Hour Fitness, several fast-food restaurants, and a movie theatre. On site itself, residents have access to a social lounge with HDTV entertainment, an ultramodern fitness center, and a resort-style pool. A key component of the Western Rim Properties philosophy is to create a community spirit within the development, and the Mansions at Stone Hill provide that spirit in abundance.
Across Marcus Hiles’ 15,000 aristocratic residencies throughout Texas, cellulose sound insulation is indebted for giving renters the feeling of having their own sanctuary from the outside world. Though the properties illustrate the developer’s principle of community-centric features, such as shared leisure centers and championship golf courses, Hiles embraces the demand for residents’ private home life — one without any detectable interference from the world outside or next door. Full depth cellulose is greatly advantageous in its capacity to minimize intrusive sound. While most insulation provides some noise reduction by limiting sound from traveling through walls and between floors, dense packing cellulose decreases volumes by constraining the passage of sound along cavities in a building’s architecture. According to the Cellulose Insulation Manufacturers Association, cellulose insulation products have an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating travelling upwards of .80 or higher, meaning that it absorbs 80% or more of the sound with which it comes into contact. With a concord roughly three times more dense than standard fiberglass, it presents an expansive enrichment over the other most common type of home insulation.
