Alara

The Alara building is conveniently located on 75, providing easy access to anywhere in Dallas you may wish to venture. One would think that because of the proximity to this major highway, you would hear the constant white-noise produced by passing vehicles. This is not the case. The apartments are very much sound proofed. I can't say much about the amenities as I hardly use them, but overall, it's a great and beautiful place to live.

Great place to live

The Alara is fantastic. Great finish out in the apartment (10 ft ceilings!) and reasonably priced compared the apartment complexes nearby. L2 apartments are the exact same, but more expensive. The staff is always very kind and helpful and all of the neighbors are friendly. It can be quiet - which is good and bad. I very rarely see anyone else in the halls or around the property. It's walking distance to everything and feels very safe. My only complaint is they have a horribly organized package pickup system - they just have all the boxes in a room and forget to remove them from the system once they're picked up. Before moving in, I looked at the majority of the apartment complexes in Uptown and this one was by far the best for price, quality and safety.

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.
