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

27 reviews
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.
Walking distance to west village
Close to grocery store
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.
Uptown is very walkable with all sorts of amenities nearby, from bars to a new Whole Foods, parks, plenty of restaurants, and free transit on a heritage streetcar system. It is a very safe, well-kept area near downtown.
Oak Lawn offers a lot of restauants and bars and is also walking distance to Uptown and the Katy Trail. The Western area of Oak Lawn can be a bit sketchy, but East of Oak Lawn is perfectly safe.
