High-rise in Dallas Design District comes with cool pool and restaurant
A new residential development has landed in Dallas' Design District, that comes with its own restaurant, open to the public.
It'll also be home to a neighborhood bistro called Charley, opening in late November-early December.
Urby features studio, one-, and two-bedroom apartments with rents starting at $1,956 for a studio on the low end, and topping out at $3,467 for a two-bedroom two-bath unit, with most rents in the $2,200-$2,600 range.
Amenities include a fitness facility with yoga studio, dog park, dog wash, and a prismatic pool inspired by pools found in Yellowstone National Park. Pool-wise, that is reaching pretty high.

In addition to the restaurant Charley, there'll be an accompanying lounge for residents only called The Salon, plus a private dining room with communal table for foodie events or work meetings. A library, which residents can use as a workspace, will offer a menu serviced by Charley.
There's no info yet on chef or menu, but the design is by Shawn Hausman Design, a restaurant and boutique hotel designer whose portfolio includes The Standard, Chateau Marmont, Le Diplomat, and Little Doms, for groups like André Balazs Properties, Standard Hotels International, and Stephen Starr Restaurants.
According to a spokesperson, all Urby properties come with an in-house restaurant or cafe. For Charley, Hausman drew inspiration from Austrian cafes, from classic Viennese cafes to offbeat spots in Graz. Decorative features will include historic European furniture and an "unexpected" color palette.
Founded in 2016, Urby is part of a chain by president and CEO David Barry, a New York developer whose prior properties include the Standard East Village, Chiltern Firehouse in London, and W Hotel in Hoboken. Dallas will be the sixth Urby, but the first outside the New York area. Current Urby buildings are in New York, Jersey City, Harrison NJ, and Stamford, Connecticut, with Philadelphia, Miami, and Washington DC also in the works.
The Dallas property will ultimately include more than 900 apartments in three residential towers on a four-acre site. So two more buildings are coming.

“We are delighted to officially begin leasing at Dallas Urby which we believe is a fantastic residential complement to the Design District,” David Barry says in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming our first residents this month and introducing them to our thoughtful design, engaging experiences and community connection.”
