DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Prominent real estate authority, MarcusHiles argues that peace and quiet are as crucial for high-endapartments as the powerful interior design or on-site features. For thisreason, all new Western Rim developments are now constructed usingstrategic, proven soundproofing methods that ensure residents a quiethome, minimizing the noise of surrounding neighbors.
Professional soundproof technicians are now “busier than ever asconsumers search for quiet,” according to the NewYork Times, as an innate issue of dense, vertical apartmentproperties is the constant noise from surrounding units being heard inothers. Music, footsteps, and even chatter all have the tendency tobleed through floors and walls, creating a disturbance to adjacentneighbors. Hiles’ strategy involves implementing effective soundproofingmethods as new apartments are being constructed, eliminating anypotential sound issues from the outset. All new Western Rim projectsfeature double-thick walls between homes, and 18 inches between floors.Remaining space between walls and floors is completely filled withcellulose, an efficient, optimal sound-muffling material.
MarcusHiles has established a reputation for constructing upscale suburbancommunities in close proximity to major urban centers throughout Texas.The solace and enhanced privacy inside each apartment unit is a fittingcomplement to these features, providing a true refuge from the outsideworld. In addition to soundproofing, the materials and methods usedserve another purpose as well, helping to reduce carbon emissions andoverall energy costs — an important goal of Hiles for each property.
