Dallas, this is the latest in urban living: The Shelby Residences has just emerged from a complete renovation, resulting in 55 contemporary residences offering the best in urban, modern homeownership in the vibrant and up-and-coming University Crossing neighborhood.
Owners at The Shelby Residences take advantage of its location, which is just moments from downtown, Mockingbird Station, Lower Greenville, and the SMU campus. In the mood for a burger? Walk downstairs to Twisted Root Burger Co. Other dining options just steps away include Torchy’s Tacos, Bahn Shop, Nodding Donkey, and Barley House.
Fitness addicts can get their fix at Crossfit Dallas Central or CorePower Yoga, both within walking distance. Essential beauty services are just as convenient: Less than a half-mile down the road are Castle Nail Spa for regular mani/pedis and Pouf for makeup applications or blowouts.
The University Crossing neighborhood is so hot, in fact, that there are plans for a pedestrian bridge across Mockingbird Lane and an extension of the Katy Trail through the area. Construction of the bridge starts in October and is expected to wrap up in early 2017. This only scratches the surface of the millions of dollars being poured into this vibrant community.
As for the property itself, amenities abound, even before you set foot inside your condo. The Shelby Residences is flush with fresh, contemporary art, and owners can take advantage of a new Owners’ Lounge and the lush rooftop terrace with fire pits, comfy seats, gas grills, and dining spaces. The condo complex also features a fitness center and a “barking lot” to accommodate friends of the four-legged variety.
Once inside, it’s easy to see that The Shelby Residences are at the forefront of design trends, with Puccini porcelain wood flooring, quartz countertops, and stainless appliances. Properties also include ensuite laundry, walk-in closets, views of downtown, and lots of added storage space.
Perhaps the best part of owning a condo at The Shelby Residences, however, is the price: One- and two-bedroom homes currently start in the low $200,000s.
“With the open concept interior layouts and breathtaking views of downtown Dallas and the beautiful SMU campus, you will be hard pressed to find a like-new building in this area at this price point,” says Brent Halvorson, vice president of the Marquis Group, which owns The Shelby Residences. “We feel that it is a great option for Dallas professionals, SMU graduate students, SMU alumni, and faculty ready to own.”
