Imagine gathering for a fun event with all your friends in a swanky club room that's outfitted with shuffleboard, a pool table, and a flatscreen TV. A fully equipped kitchen is prepped to stock snacks and drinks, and you don’t have to even worry about Ubering home at the end of the night.
But here's the kicker: You're not on vacation or at an upscale lounge. You're in your own apartment community.
Alara Uptown is known for pampering its residents, but there are even more exciting additions on the horizon. The apartments, which sit on a prime spot right across from West Village, are sprucing up even more to keep pace with the gorgeous and ever-improving neighborhood.
Walking into Alara is like entering a boutique hotel, with its artistic light fixtures, wood and shell-tile wall features, plush furniture, and long gas fireplace placed above a white banquette. Welcoming team members who are adept at anticipating and exceeding expectations are on-hand should any questions arise, or just to offer a friendly face at the end of a long day.
That same high-end feel extends to all its units, which range from studio to one- and two-bedroom floorplans. Handscraped wood floors and granite countertops are featured, along with spa-like bathrooms and enough closet space to support living across the street from all those shops.
This walkable area of Dallas is a definite plus if there’s a pooch in your life. But sometimes there’s not room in the schedule for a jog down the Katy Trail, and so the onsite pet park gives four-legged friends a space to stretch their legs and play a game or two of fetch. Alara’s beautiful courtyard is also ideal for when fresh air is a must, with its firepit, barbecues, and multiple seating areas.
Convenience is big at Alara Uptown — take, for example, the bank of lockers set up for easy drop-off and pick-up of dry cleaning. The fitness center is also open 24 hours, and it’s undergoing a mini-facelift too. The new lighting and décor will be on par with the existing Technogym equipment (you can watch DirecTV, plug into social media, or plug in your iPad, iPod, or smartphone on each cardio machine), making the gym somewhere you’ll actually want to be.
That’s what life is like at Alara Uptown: somewhere where everyday life is easier and there’s always the chance for fun.
