Uptown Is Still Out Here Killing It

Uptown Dallas certainly has a rep as the most recognized neighborhood in the city, and there’s a good reason for that! The extremely walkable neighborhood is the essence of luxury for Dallas apartment living, with exclusive, upscale price points and amenities in a central location. Literally everyone wants to live in Uptown and it never seems to go out of style!

If you want to walk to restaurants and bars from your new pad, Uptown is the spot. This pedestrian-friendly neighborhood puts all of your needs within minutes! The local Uptown DART rail station and McKinney Avenue’s restored vintage trolley line will give you plenty of reasons to use public transportation in old school style when you really don’t want to drag the car out of the garage. Katy Trail, a 3.5 mile running and biking track that stretches up through Oak Lawn, provides the perfect outlet for an after-work jog! Plus, Uptown is where all the action goes down. If you love going out, there’s a plethora of hot spots on Mckinney Ave and Cedar Springs.

With Uptown Dallas apartments you can expect to shell out a bit more each month for less square footage, but the price point is part of an all-inclusive experience! Highrises and Downtown Dallas views are not uncommon in this neighborhood, with top-of-the-line finish-outs like granite and stainless appliances, as well as luxurious community amenities like state-of-the-art fitness centers and rooftop pools.

There’s more culture to this newer urban community than you might think, too! Within the Uptown Dallas neighborhood are a few distinct areas that you should keep in mind when looking for your new place:

State & Thomas – This historic location houses the largest collection of Victorian-era homes in Dallas, perfect for renters who love the classic, urban feel of streets lined with brownstone homes. Here you’ll find apartments centered around State Street and Thomas Avenue, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Uptown’s busier streets but still in walking distance of local hot spots like Si Tapas and Nodding Donkey.

West Village – West Village offers a rich  dining and shopping experience, with local Magnolia Theater in the mix, too!  Since this section is a more recent development, expect apartments in this area to be recently built, with more of a chic, modern look and feel to them. Does city-living have you dreaming of lush lawns and open spaces? Grab some friends and head over to the beer garden-style experience and outdoor stage at The Rustic, or stretch Fido’s legs at Mutt’s cantina & dog park.

McKinney Avenue – This infamous Uptown street is considered a hub for nightlife in Uptown Dallas! While it stretches through the neighborhood, apartments along the street have a distinct experience that sets them apart. Ask about McKinney Avenue if you’re looking to be even closer to some of the trendiest bars, clubs, and restaurants.
