Excitement ran high when The Shelby Residences debuted in 2015, and most of the one- and two-bedroom condos were snapped up immediately by Dallasites eager to experience the distinctive, modern decor and convenience of living in the new University Crossing neighborhood.
But The Shelby wasn't content to rest on its laurels. The development has continued to improve and update over the months, with several new amenities elevating the living experience for its residents. The area, too, has only gotten better, with major changes in store for The Shelby's popular neighbor, the Katy Trail.
Do all these enhancements mean you missed your chance at living in one of Dallas' coolest condos? Not quite. There are fewer than a dozen homes remaining in The Shelby — with three different floorplans — but you'll want to contact a sales specialist and move fast if you're hoping to score one. Prices start in the low $300Ks.
And if you do, bring your four-legged friend. The dog-friendly Shelby has its own private pup park called the Barking Lot, so you and Fido can get lots of exercise together. If you want to enjoy some fresh air with your human friends, there is more than 3,000 square feet of private outdoor space for residents, complete with a barbecue, fire pit, and loads of comfy seating.
That square footage includes the new rooftop deck that's slated to open this fall. An unveiling party with refreshments, light bites, music, and more is in the works, so be sure to register your interest with The Shelby to receive an invite when the date is set. And then prepare to gaze at those incredible downtown Dallas views that'll be on display.
Downtown may be in the distance, but right outside your doorstep you'll find some of the city's most popular restaurants and shops. Mockingbird Station — and its new pedestrian bridge that will connect the area to Southern Methodist University across the highway — is a short jaunt south, while Twisted Root Burger Co., Torchy's Tacos, and Ozona Grill and Bar are steps away.
The Shelby is conveniently situated between US 75 and Greenville Avenue, granting immediate access to both a major highway and the hip stretch of road that's been revitalized over the past few years. The Greenville Avenue corridor is also up for even more improvements through a proposal that the City of Dallas is currently reviewing.
And don't worry about all those tempting restaurants nearby. A 24-hour fitness facility, decked out with top-of-the-line cardio and strength training equipment, is ready and waiting for Shelby residents.
Or you can lace up your tennies and head out onto the Katy Trail, which is about to undergo an extension that will improve pedestrian and bike safety throughout the entire area. After all this exploring, it'll be nice to return home to your luxe condominium at The Shelby.
