Thoughts on living in Deep Ellum in 2020/pandemic times? For context, early 20s/single and I like being able to walk to food and drink. Any apartment recs? industrial loft style would be a plus but not necessary

Also open to other neighborhoods around Uptown/Downtown/Lower Greenville. Commute not a factor, always WFH

Just take a lake house. I moved in March. Debating doing the same

Area has probably changed a lot since I lived there 6 years ago right out of undergrad. If anything, I think it’s gotten worse and not better. Definitely had the walking perk with fun bars/restaurants nearby (good for dates and hanging with friends!) but don’t know if I could deal with the noise now.

I lived in Broadstone Ambrose. Good building and value. Not lofts but somewhat modern and bright/open. I imagine it could get pretty loud these days (pre-COVID) depending on unit. Camden farmer’s market or Marquis at Gaston were similar price points but I liked Broadstone a lot better.

Not super familiar with some of the loft options but they looked cool! Just know it will be an older building and maybe not as great windows to keep out sound. Also look into the Case building (newer, fancier, pricier, but further walk and could be dangerous at night). And uptown (recommend Gables McKinney Ave for a reasonable price point and good value) and Lower Greenville!

Sorry for the long post! Good luck with your apartment/neighborhood search! Let me know if you have any other questions! And welcome to Dallas (if you’re recently moving!)

West Village is amazing. I prefer it to deep ellum. There are several nice apartments in west village and so many restaurants there.

I 2nd west village! But not many loft style apartments. The Katy trail is an amazing amenity to walk to a bunch of stuff. There are a few new buildings near deep ellum, the Gabrielle and the Hamilton that seems nice!

Adult son just moved into Seville Uptown, great loft, great price, walking distance to Katy Trail and food/drink. Off Oak Lawn.

Should I address with my line manager or HR? What are fair trade-offs for salary $s?
For context, annual reviews are coming up, but company has been clear budget for salary raises is low.
