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.
