Uptown has been great!


If you’re interested in the metroplex as a whole, the Plano, Frisco, McKinney, Allen are great suburbs to have a family. Education is great and generally a very nice area. Lots of companies headquartered there and property values are always appreciating.


Look into Las Colinas


I live in Victory Park and am just about to move uptown. If you do choose Victory Park just don’t go with Cirque - constant construction that keeps being delayed and delayed!

I’ve lived in Uptown/Oak Lawn for the past year (mid 20s, in a relationship) and we’ve been happy with it. We’re at the Gables Villa Rosa and its been a good experience. Knox/Henderson or Lower Greenville are our favorite other neighborhoods in town (and Bishop Arts Dist but IDK about living over there)


Age, married, kids, office location? These should help people’s responses.

Ditto what SA1 said. It’s good to get into those neighborhoods now since rent is relatively lower compared to last year. Lock in a long contract, and be in a good position for when the community fully reopens post pandemic. Or take your chances and go out and YOLO brunch with the students at SMU.

That depends on your life stage and what you’re looking for! Happy to help out though

Addison is good

A lesser known area Cityplace is great, right across the highway from Uptown and depending on where you look prices could be significantly lower.

I’d also recommend post uptown village, it’s not the nicest of apartments, but the area is safe and the prices are very reasonable and you’re only a couple blocks from McKinney Ave.

Lots of good suggestions.

I'm in Greenville area which has a good amount of trails to White Rock Lake, Katy Trail, and others. Good local bars and restaurants all walkable. Cheaper than Uptown.

Just my 2 cents.

Dallas native. Much depends on what you are looking for. Yeah all the “in” places were announced but you pay big bucks for it too and some sqft are extremely small for what you get. Not sure what stage you are your life (age, single, family, etc) but I’m sure once you get a lay of the land you’ll know

I am exactly the same demographic, and would highly recommend uptown (specifically West Village). It’s more “expensive” but worth it given everything :) and ofc rents are down these days.

Hello, I’m an associate (almost at the one year mark) at a midsize firm on the EPL team. I did about 2 years of employment law as a clerk during school and know that’s what I want to go into. I’ve asked for more EPL work but keep catching PI cases. I second-chaired an employment trial but don’t see any EPL work for the foreseeable future and wasn’t getting as much EPL exposure as I wanted before the trial. Any advice on a lateral move to a bigger firm with a broader range of EPL work?
