The only thing better than living in a swank apartment in the hottest part of Dallas is moving in right before the building becomes the new “it” locale. But how do you find that perfect urban homestead, before everyone else is clamoring to live there too?
You talk to Dallas Apartment Locators, located above Mi Cocina in the West Village, who for eight years have been helping Dallasites and Texas transplants nail down their ideal new home, often with bonuses like free rent that otherwise might have gone unclaimed. These licensed Realtors take into account your preferences for area, budget, amenities, and timeline, and can find exactly what you’re looking for — all for free.
Few know the local apartment market like they do, so Dallas Apartment Locators shared some inside info on the top five most up-and-coming communities. Take note, for you might be reading about your new home.
The newest high-rise in Uptown has everything from studios to penthouses available in its distinctive 20 stories. City views, walkability, easy access to bars and restaurants, Whole Foods just down the street — the hashtag #OneUp says it all. It’s also home to a Dallas first: a glass-bottom pool, which complements the Sky Deck on the building’s rooftop. Two hospitality suites make hosting out-of-town guests a breeze, especially with the help of the 24-hour concierge.

Located on McKinney Avenue in the heart of Uptown Dallas, the distinguishing curved glass architecture (created by famous Dallas architect, Phil Shepard) was artfully crated to embody the vivacious spirit of the neighborhood. Residents will enjoy an all-in-one, first-class living experience in a premier location that includes luxury amenities, modern floor plans and easy access to all the best parks, restaurants, nightlife and shopping Uptown has to offer.
One Uptown also has the highest walkability score in the city, making it the perfect location for anyone seeking an active urban lifestyle. It is conveniently located next to Klyde Warren Park, the Katy Trail, Whole Foods, the newly expanded McKinney Trolley, and a high concentration of fine dining and nightlife hot spots in Dallas.
“One Uptown offers comfortability, convenience and luxurious homes in one of Dallas’ most sought-after neighborhoods,” said CEO Rick Cavenaugh of Stoneleigh Companies, a national multi-family investor and development company.
Carrollton transit-oriented development will include downtown apartments
Dallas News | Steve Brown | November 14, 2016
Developers have gotten the planning go-ahead to build a new transit-oriented development in downtown Carrollton.
Stoneleigh Cos. — which is building one of Uptown Dallas’ new apartment towers — and Realty Capital will develop the four-story, 234-unit Switchyard apartment community on Broadway Street at College Avenue, just east of Interstate 35E.
The planned rental project is across the street from the downtown Carrollton DART commuter rail station. And the site is at the crossroads with the planned Cotton Belt passenger rail line, which will run to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport.
“We’re looking to break ground in February,” Stoneleigh CEO Rick Cavenaugh said.
He said construction of the two buildings should take 16 to 18 months. Carrollton’s planning and zoning commission recently approved the development.
EDI International is the architect for the project.
Stoneleigh is just finishing its 20-story One Uptown apartment high-rise on McKinney Avenue in Uptown. And the developer has another new rental community in the works just north of Main Street in Frisco.
Stoneleigh’s project will be the second urban rental community built at the downtown Carrollton DART station.
Developer High Street Residential constructed the 311-unit Union at Carrollton Square starting in 2012.
