Oaxaca Interests to open HiFAB modular-home manufacturing plant in Grand Prairie – The Dallas Morning News

A Dallas real estate firm plans to build modular homes across Texas at a new facility in Grand Prairie, with a goal of eventually building up to 300 homes each year.

Oaxaca Interests LLC, a Dallas-based real estate, design, engineering and investment firm, will open a manufacturing plant dedicated to creating modular homes for private clients and developers across Texas, the company said Tuesday. Oaxaca is also known for the popular Sylvan Thirty mixed-use development west of downtown.

The more than 42,500-square-foot plant, known as HiFAB, will be spread across 7 acres at 1771 Robinson Road in Grand Prairie and open by Jan. 31. It will build prefabricated homes called Haciendas that are meant as an alternative to pricier traditional homes. The two-bedroom homes will start at $249,000, and three-bedroom homes will start at $375,000.

The homes will be exclusively available in Texas and begin rolling out by March 31, but they can be ordered now. Oaxaca just completed the third phase of a community of the homes in West Dallas. That development served as a test run for the designs, which averaged around 1,570 square feet for two-bedroom homes to 1,825 square feet for three-bedroom houses.

The homes will be available in two- and three-bedroom floor plans.

“With HiFAB, we hope to lead the modular home sector in Texas. By collaborating with Lake Flato again, we’ll be able to provide folks with highly designed yet functional homes that will be produced at our 7-acre facility”, said Oaxaca Interests and HiFAB founder Brent Jackson in a statement. “Simple design is hard to pull off, but it allows us to focus on the details for a cleaner, more efficient way of living. This uncluttered design also allows for a lock-and-leave lifestyle to travel the world and then return to a lovely home to catch your breath and relax.”

Lake Flato Architects, an architecture firm based in San Antonio, will design the homes. Prices include design, assembly, on-site delivery and setup. Customers will be able to customize their homes with different layouts, tiles, paint colors and other finishes and watch the building process online from start to finish.

Ted Flato, founding partner of Lake Flato Architects and a HiFAB board member, said the prefabricated homes were designed with qualities of “nature, place and restraint” that mimic its early home designs close to 40 years ago. The homes will include sustainability features such as ultraviolet light air purifying systems, fresh-air exchange systems and eco-friendly paints.
