Walking through the gates of The Village is like walking into an oasis. Even though you're right in the heart of Dallas, just minutes from NorthPark Center and The Shops at Park Lane, you are instantly enveloped by more than 300 acres that are lushly landscaped with trees and greenery.
The botanical haven is, like most things at The Village, reflective of the community's thoughtful approach to creating the ideal lifestyle. More than 11,000 people currently live at The Village, drawn to it for the enviable amenities, caring management, and fun and friendly atmosphere. A lot of apartment communities claim to listen to their residents, but the team at The Village actually cares about and puts into action the kind of perks and events that set its neighborhood apart.
For example, it's not unusual for outdoor grilling stations to see an uptick in use when the weather turns nice. But when residents mentioned wanting the ability to smoke meat, The Village installed a Big Green Egg for their use. Upon noticing that a lot of its families were rounded out by furry, four-legged friends, the community built a gigantic, two-acre dog park next to its serene walking trails.
It's not just the big changes, either. If someone is throwing together a quick caprese salad, they can clip a few leaves of fresh basil from the community garden. It also grows such kitchen staples as mint, cabbage, and tomatoes and its produce is available to residents for free.
Or if you want to be the one exercising those green thumbs, join the garden club. It's one of several social clubs and meet-up groups offered in The Village, all of which are designed to encourage friendship and camaraderie among neighbors. Instead of the standard "grab and taco and go" events that most apartments host, the get-togethers organized here range from calligraphy workshops to cigar-rolling classes.
On the property you'll find a 10,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor fitness facility that includes cardio and weight training equipment, studio spaces for weekly fitness classes, lockers and showers, and an outdoor workout and social space. The Village also boasts spaces such as a cozy coffee bar with complimentary lattes and a brick event space that's ideal for large dinners and parties. You can experience how well suited the space is to hosting by attending one of the beautifully designed and (free) catered dinners that the community regularly puts on.
With so much to enjoy on-site, it's easy to forget that the homes are just as thoughtfully curated. Ranging from efficiency to three-bedroom, under 600 square feet to more than 1,200, the units are designed to suit a variety of lifestyle needs.
