Most apartment homes are cookie-cutter, with less-than-luxe finishes and floorplans that provoke compromise, not contentment. The Katy, a new high-rise development in Victory Park, is not most apartment homes.
For starters, it's being built by a local developer who prioritizes community, not just within the neighborhood but within the homes themselves. Beloved North Texas businesses Local Press + Brew and Richardson Bike Mart will each have an outlet in the building, but it's residents who will reap the most benefits.
Dog-owners will appreciate the trail's closeness too, but on those days when it's tough to squeeze in a long walk, The Katy has an oversized dog park on the seventh floor. The pups get to feel pampered, with sail shades to keep their paws cool and even a vending machine for treats and toys (a portion of the proceeds will go to local animal charities). Owners can lounge under the trellis, which is heated to ensure all-weather comfort.
To help keep everything clean and fresh, a state-of-the-art irrigation system runs often. And next to the park is an easy-to-use dog-washing room, with several stations and an attendant who will even pick up your pup, perform a wash and fluff, and then return Fido to your apartment.
It's extra-special amenities like these that truly set The Katy apart, because it also has the high-end finishes, thoughtfully designed floorplans, and incredible views that renters would not expect. Think waterfall quartz counters and a built-in wine-cooler in the beautiful kitchen, floor-to-ceiling windows (complete with blackout shades), extra-large balconies, WiFi thermostats, and a full-size washer and dryer included in each unit. And several inches of concrete — above, below, and between — separates each home, meaning that you'll have a hard time hearing your neighbors.
If your apartment overlooks the negative-edge swimming pool and two hot tubs, you get an extra bonus: an HDTV so large that you can practically read the Cowboys' score from your balcony, mounted next to the pool.
Other gathering spots include the swanky 9th floor lounge, gym and its two decks, each outfitted with two fire pits, heaters, and jaw-dropping city views. And don't forget the six work lounges, where you can escape to prep a big presentation or meet a deadline.
Be sure to use the 24-hour concierge, who's also available to make restaurant recs and reservations, secure sports tickets, and vet all visitors. The Katy and all its units utilize keyless entry, and there are four townhome-style apartments that come with their own attached two-car garages. In the main garage, electric car charging stations are available and a resident auto care center makes it easy to keep your four wheels clean and fresh. And there's no chance that sports fans or concert-goers from the nearby American Airlines Center will snatch up parking spots, as only residents and their guests get to enter.
The Katy is now open, so don't wait to reserve your new home. Visit the website or call 214-997-0375 for more information.
