Moving to Dallas in March from Philadelphia. Can anybody recommend good apartment complexes to live in Dallas? Looking at Uptown, near (dog) parks, and with a budget of 2300 ish but cheapest is best.

If you’re looking uptown, west village fits most of your criteria. There’s a large dog park close by and lots of restaurants. I live in One Oak Grove and the community feels mostly in their mid/late 20s

I’ve enjoyed it so far. I moved here in July from Chicago so def understand the need for the more “city” feel. Car transportation still dominates regardless of where you are, but definitely lots of restaurants that I walk to and everything else is a a short/cheap Uber away. Met a couple people in the building that have been here for several years so that’s a green flag for me.

I like the cedar springs area. Look at complexes off maple like essence. Quiet but central. Quick Uber to uptown, walkable to Katy trail. Also the Alton is new and looks nice / has stuff in your range

like

Alton is not in that price range it is $3k+

Also just a thought there's very few walkable areas in Dallas that are not "eh or sketchy". Most that are walkable are like in the prices sof gentrification or insanely expensive and only a small area of walkability and niceness. In my opinion haha but take that for what it's worth! Good luck in your search :)

I agree. I live near Oak Lawn/ cedar springs and have an amazing 2br for $2000/month in a gated complex, but there's like a real-life project two blocks away. Highland Park if you go north, projects if you go south. I love my semi-ghetto hood, though!

I loved living at Moda - it was about 1,500 for a 1 br and it’s 50 yards from the American Airlines center - very walkable, and in victory park

like

Not sure if someone recommended uptown to you, but that’s not seen as a great place to live anymore. Victory park is walkable and a lot of young professionals live there. If you’re aiming for uptown, north of Blackburn is going to be a nicer area, and will give you access to more places for your dog.

Also don’t sleep on Old East Dallas (right outside of downtown). I’ve lived here for 5 years in and upscale building (one bedroom/bath) for $1250.

Uptown is trendy but I prefer downtown. When I moved tonDallas in 2008 to start with KPMG, I lived three blocks away from the office on Elm St and loved it.

Are you looking for 1 bedroom or two bedroom?

1 bedroom. Lots of apartment complexes are on the area but a lot have bad reviews, people breaking into cars… etc

My priorities are: close to walkable areas and parks, youngish professionals (I am 27M), restaurants and etc,

Don’t focus too much on apartments reviews. My old apartment had so many bad reviews but I really liked the apartment so I took it and lived there for 4yrs. Best decision of my life!!

Reduce your budget firstly. And if you have enough money buy a house over here.

I just don’t understand your financial planning!

I own 2 homes already. 1 for family in NJ and my current home in Philly will be an investment property

As a single 27 year old - I don’t want another home to look after, the freedom to live in apartments is nice

New place ELE just opened in Lower Greenville

Lower Greenville is great. It’s semi-walking distance to a lot of bars and great restaurants. Very close to downtown but has a house neighborhood kind of feel to it. The personality of the neighborhood is nice/friendly without some of the pretentiousness you might find in some other areas of Dallas. Good grocery store options, if you care. 10 minutes south, you’re in one of the most hispanic areas of Dallas (great food). 15 minutes east is white rock lake. 10 minutes west is uptown/downtown, and a completely different bar scene.

Check out Atelier. If interested let me know and I can refer you
