Is High-Rise Living Right For You?


In Dallas, moving up can have a literal meaning.

If you appreciate a sophisticated lifestyle and luxurious surroundings close to the business and cultural heart of the city, then high rise living in Uptown, adjacent to all the advantages of the Park Cities, may be your ticket to residential bliss.

There are many advantages to moving up, whether you choose a building in up-and-coming, exciting Uptown, a more traditional condo unit along Turtle Creek, a trendy new residence in a stately, refurbished downtown building or a traditionally elegant address in a Park Cities tower.

Expand Your Horizons

The high rise lifestyle offers a new perspective, from stunning views of the Dallas skyline to a birds-eye view of surrounding parks and urban streetscapes. High rise living allows you to experience the spirit of the city in a new and exciting way every day.

In addition, much of the best of the Dallas urban scene is at your doorstep.

Take advantage of the ability to stroll to vibrant McKinney Avenue if you choose, to explore nearby boutiques and trendy eateries, to enjoy an afternoon with friends at your favorite local coffee shop, to take in a gallery opening or a performance at the Meyerson with little advance planning.

Enjoy sunrise or starry skies from a special vantage point, and experience the sense of belonging that you feel as you embrace this distinct urban vibe.

Freedom From and To

Moving to an urban high rise frees you from the necessity of yard work, exterior upkeep and routine maintenance chores. Your former property ownership woes largely disappear. In addition, many Dallas buildings offer concierge and valet services, and a variety of additional perks to make living easier.

As you explore available options, be certain to ask questions about all the perks that accrue to residents.

With a high rise address, living in town means you are able to “get out of town” almost on a moment’s notice, for a weekend or a season. You’ll gain the freedom to turn the key in the lock and walk away with little concern about safety and security.

Convenience and Amenities

There is little doubt that there are pros and cons about high rise living. But those who have made the transition cite the advantages in glowing terms.

Those advantages of high-rise living extend far beyond the convenience and peace of mind, although they are prime considerations.

High rise living in sprawling Dallas can also simulate a return to the cherished small town lifestyle of the past. There is a sense of community within the building neighborhood that is pervasive and welcoming. On the other hand, the excitement of urban living is always close at hand. Trading time in the car for the appeal of being close to what’s happening can be a heady experience!
