Flats at the Sawyer

I really like this apartment - I live here with my best friend from law school and it's only about 10 minutes away from SMU if you take McKinney to campus, and about 5-8 minutes if you take 75. We have plenty of space for studying in our apartment and live only a few blocks from the Katy Trail and Mutt's Canine Cantina, which is great for dog owners! The trolley also has a stop just down Cityplace West from the apartment. The amenities aren't anything crazy, but what Flats lacks in amenities it makes up for in apartment quality.

Great location and fair pricing, but lacks amenities

This apartment complex is one of the best values in West Village. However, if you are looking for amenities, this is not the place for you. The gym has about 6 pieces of equipment, the pool is fairly small with inadequate grilling station and there is no true lounge or work space. (Although they recently reduced the leasing office to appear to have a tiny hole of a work space).

You are truly in this place for a good deal, newer construction and location.

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.
