Berkshire

I like my apartment because it’s in a central location. I can get downtown to internships and campus in less than 15 minutes without getting on the expressway. I’m close to just about every major highway and minutes from the airport. There’s a Starbucks directly behind my apartment. I have had some noise issues but management has been responsive in helping me resolve them. The unit is generally quiet and friendly.

Bait and switch

Very nice apartment, although the price point is a bit high for such small square footage. I signed my lease sight unseen and when I arrived, the apartment I had agreed to rent was NOT the one they put me in, which was upsetting and unprofessional. As I had moved across the country, I went ahead and moved in because I really had nowhere else to go. The apartment itself had upscale finishes, maintenance is responsive to requests. They have valet trash, but the silliest rule that if you do not leave it out in the special trash can, they will fine you. Also, there needs to be a dumpster on sight for disposing of larger items that do not fit in the provided trash can. Noise pollution isn't too bad, but my bathroom gets hotboxed every time the downstairs neighbors decide to smoke.

Great place. Sketchy area. Good maintenance team. Not many social events offered (maybe one every other month). Great high end upgrades. Wood floors throughout. Granite counter tops. Fans in all rooms with high end lighting. Valet Trash for $25 / month

Getting around Oak Lawn


Oak Lawn Reviews

It’s a great mix of young professionals. There aren’t a whole lot of undergrads living over here, which is really nice. I love being so close to so many shops and restaurants, but not too close, like I feel you’d be in Uptown. Knox Heights is on the strip of McKinney perpendicular to Knox, so you get the location benefits without the noise.
Located directly between victory park and uptown, only blocks from the tollway, Glasshouse has a premier location. The neighborhood offers a spectrum of restaurant and bar options, and the Katy Trail is a short walk away.
Great place to live. Plenty of restaurants, bars, and grocery stores within walking distance. I do not have to leave a three mile radius unless I want to.
The location of this complex is excellent, especially if you are without a car. There are probably 8+ restaurants that are within a 7 minute walk, mostly on Lemmon Ave, Oak Lawn Ave, and Cedar Springs Rd. Walgreens, Kroger, Genesis Thrift Shop, a public library, and UPS are also a 5-10 minute walk away, so many conveniences are nearby. A post office is about a 15 minute walk away. Hardly anywhere in Dallas is as walkable as this area.

This is a very active neighborhood with a bar scene on the weekends. There are homeless people who live around here, but they have never bothered me. While I wouldn't call it a dangerous neighborhood, there is probably a little more crime than some larger complexes such as the Village.
Great neighborhood, plenty of food and shopping and easy access by walking and biking.
it is a relatively young area-everyone is pretty friendly
Perfect neighborhood. There are two bars on McKinney that a lot of SMU students love. Most of the bars are on Henderson across 75 and easily walkable too. It’s a very safe area where I feel comfortable walking my dog alone at night as a girl in my early 20s. So nice to live close to the Katy Trail and less than a mile from SMU.
The West Village area has everything a young professional needs. You're walking distance to many of the stores you have to go to the mall to have access to (Banana Republic, Brooks Brothers, The Gap, etc.) and you even have access to a local movie theater. When you throw in bars, restaurants, and a large Starbucks...you have a solid spot. I highly recommend the area.
