Marcus Hiles Discusses Elegant Lifestyle’s Role In Modern Living

Hotel-style amenities are featured at many of Marcus Hiles Dallas neighborhoods, including swimming pools with tanning decks and outdoor gourmet summer kitchens where young professionals and families can enjoy the scenic Texas surroundings.

Marcus Hiles Continues Building For Energy Efficiency

Marcus Hiles Continues Building For Energy Efficiency

Marcus Hiles’ rental homes, townhomes and apartments feature energy efficient practices without sacrificing luxurious amenities. The rooves on each building are installed with highly reflective radiant barrier panels that can cut heat transfer by up to 97 percent, reducing indoor temperatures by 30 degrees. High-quality weather stripping and dual pane windows with a layer of argon gas along with a solar heat gain coefficient of a minimum of 0.22 assist in preventing heat loss. Indoors, every unit is equipped with Energy Star rated appliances that not only reduce the resident’s carbon footprint, but minimize utility costs. The industry standard for air conditioners is to install units with a seasonal energy efficiency rating (SEER) of 12 to 14, but Hiles insists on using only units with SEER values of over 16. As a result, residents throughout his 15,000 properties have reduced their carbon emissions by 32,000 tons, while accruing almost half a million dollars in savings.

Marcus Hiles Works To Better Urban School System

Marcus Hiles Works To Better Urban School System

While the many magnet schools located throughout Dallas’ affluential suburbs are regarded among the country’s best public high schools, touting world-class instructors and facilities, the inner city district portrays a starkly different image, and reflects what is becoming an epidemic throughout the nation’s urban communities: an overwhelming majority of children living in dire circumstances. In the Dallas Independent School District (DISD), notes Marcus Hiles, 86 percent of students qualify for free and reduced-price meal plans, and the state considers 66 percent of the district’s students to be at risk for dropping out, according to the New York Times. Furthermore, a report submitted in a recent City Hall Council Meeting concluded that 38 percent of children in the downtown area are either homeless or live in a family that earns a gross income beneath the poverty line, although more than 27,000 of the individuals in these families work full-time jobs.

Marcus Hiles - On Rapidly Changing Trends in Architectural Design

Marcus Hiles – On Rapidly Changing Trends in Architectural Design

Flexibility has become an important concept, and Marcus Hiles says that homes are being built with open floor plans and adaptable rooms that can easily be adjusted to accommodate new arrivals for growing families. The idea of implied spaces—areas identified by different materials or colors found in ceilings or floors—is a contemporary way to make interiors appear larger while avoiding traditional obstructions like multiple walls. Breaking through barriers is what cutting-edge design is all about: larger windows allow for extra natural light and can replace walls outright, while helping to blend the indoors with the outside world. In order to make homes more desirable places to be, hot tubs, fitness areas and spas have been appearing in private residences, making relaxation and fitness easier than ever. And as the popularity of cooking gourmet-worthy meals has grown, so have kitchens: with restaurant-grade appliances and furniture like islands, kitchens are typically allotted additional overall square footage and have become the center of the house, overtaking dining and living rooms as the place families come together.

Marcus Hiles Gives To After School Programs In Texas

While consistent work in a good-paying job is a strong building block of security for one’s family, there is an equal need to protect the safety and well-being of children.

And, in order help future generations of young women obtain success, Hiles has donated 200 new DELL computers and monitors for students in Texas’ urban areas. The prominent real estate developer’s commitment to helping women and children is unwavering, as his own modest upbringing – a time when buying a donut or an ice cream cone was a special treat – has fueled his passion for philanthropy and desire to ensure that women who are less fortunate can create bright futures for themselves and their families.
