Love it, a little loud

I love my place! It is in an awesome location, just a couple blocks off of Katy Trail and a 5-minute drive from SMU. Lots of pet owners in the apartment. Management is fine, doesn't bother you. The gym is nice and has a pretty view. Overall, a great place that is an uptown apartment without extra frills (and the extra expenses). Only thing is that it can get loud at night because of the bars across the street. Some apartments will be louder than others. No problems with noise and neighbors though.

Food Central

I've lived in plenty of different apartment buildings, but this one is by far the best when it comes to nearby restaurants. You can walk to Urban Taco, TBD, Hook Line & Sinker, and tons of other great spots. Plus if you want to cook, there's lots of nearby grocery stores. Gym is small, but so is every other apartment gym. We've got a cool business center and my unit has a washer/dryer (but there are also a few dry cleaners in walking distance if yours doesn't).

Amazing for people 21-26 years old

McKinney Uptown is one of the best places to live for someone who has recently graduated college. It's in a great part of Uptown - walkable distance to over 20 bars, but also next to a nice grocery store and a 24-hour Walgreens. Even though it is in a busy area, I rarely have problems with noise and have never felt unsafe. While it is a little more expensive then some other apartments, the apartments are great- there are a lot of different layouts, the appliances are new, and the flooring and finishes are very nice, making it well worth the price. The gym isn't great, but it is open 24 hours and there are many boutique workouts studios and other gyms close by. My apartment has a ton of windows and vaulted ceilings as well as a lot of extra space - it's way better than I could have ever hoped for in my first apartment out of college.

Getting around Oak Lawn


Oak Lawn Reviews

55 reviews
Very close to Katy Trail! Close to Whole Foods. Lots of restaurants, bars and other apartment buildings nearby.
The neighborhood is mostly composed of young adults. There are families mixed in here and there. The area is relatively safe for Dallas but occasionally there are issues such as broken-in cars (we receive several notices to empty cars before going in). There are lots of places to eat with several well known chains in the area as well as unique spots. There is a trolley that circles the area and downtown that is useful. Parking on the weekends can be hard to come by.
Perfect mix of nightlife and small restaurants, shops and activities including Katy Trail
Very pleasant place with a lot of restaurants and nearby parks. However, the nightlife is lacking, despite the large amount of bars (it used to be popular here apparently, but now everybody goes to Deep Ellum on the weekends).
Pros:
-Within walking distance of a few bars/restaurants
-Relatively quiet during the day
-Some areas are safe
-Beautiful parks close by

Cons: -Quite a bit of construction around the area -Lots of traffic during peak traffic times -Grocery store is ~10 min away, not as easy to get to as I'd like
The complex is in the medical district, an area that is getting a re-vamp right now. Kroger is close, and a CVS was just built. The Inwood DART station is in the back yard. Love-Field is also about 3 miles away. So super noisy when trains arrive and planes are over head. Good luck if you are talking outside when a plane happens to fly over.
Tons of stuff nearby - shopping center across the street with food, movies, clothing from cheap/casual to black tie, groceries walking distance, great nightlife a mild walk or minimum far uber ride away, about a tenth of a mile from a running trail (1.5 miles on the trail gets you to downtown at the AAC where the Mavericks/Stars play and many other events are hosted). Is a bit far from the office. Depending on whether or not there is an accident, which there usually is, the drive is about 45 minutes to an hour each way.
Oak Lawn is an overall great area in terms of access to the tollway, numerous grocery stores, and entertainment districts. Walkable during the day, although at night it can be somewhat sketchy alone. Nice area close enough to walk to McKinney, Cedar Springs, etc. without living in the thick of it.
