A Fine Place To Live In 2019

Texas is looking good for those seeking new homes in 2019 and 2020. Whether you’re looking to buy or rent, there are plenty of options, and the state has a very strong economy right now. Especially for those with assets, it can be worthwhile to choose a city and rent out a luxury unit for a while to see if you like it.

Dallas is one of the best spots in the country presently. Regardless of your reason for moving, you’re likely to find something worthwhile in Dallas. Following we’ll explore five of the most luxurious communities for rental living in the city presently.

4. Elm Street And Towers

First on the list are the LTV Tower Apartments. You’ll find these located at 1555 Elm Street. The lowest of these luxury units is surprisingly affordable at $1,510. You’re lucky to get a closet with six roommates at that price in a place like L.A. Texas is doing a lot better.

In addition to top-tier amenities and fine units, you’ll find there’s an available club house, the building has a concierge, there’s parking, a pool, space for cats or dogs to run around, and even a fitness center that’s open around the clock

3. The Park of Victory On Houston Street

Ascent Victory Park is located on North Houston Street, number 2588. You can hang out by the rooftop pool. There are all kinds of modern amenities, and you’ll be astonished at the available units. There’s a great view, and this is essentially everything you’ve come to expect from a luxury apartment.
The Lofts Of Main Street’s Davis Building
On 1309 Main Street in Dallas is the historic Davis Building, which is thick with community heritage. The place has been around since the 1920s, but contemporary appointments additionally define the building—an icon of Dallas’ skyline. Davis Building units change with the times, and they’re the most affordable luxury units on this list, starting at $1,280.

Traditional Heights On Park Lane

If you’re the one who likes to shop, these are the luxury units for you, as they’re located centrally in a fine shopping district. These units come in one to three bedroom sizes, depending on which units you rent. Available styles include Urban, Loft, or Tower units. Each is top-of-the-line, and in terms of affordability, these are right in the middle, starting at $1,667.
State-Of-The-Art Design On Hi Line Drive
There’s an acre of rooftop on this building that allows you to see Dallas like very few ever have or will. Have you heard of those pools that go right to the edge of a building and seem to have no boundary?These are called “infinity pools”, and AMLI Design District at 1400 Hi Line Drive has one. Also there are fire pits, cabanas, relaxation areas, there’s an outdoor movie screen, a modern exercise facility, you can get coffee at a java bar, there’s a place for your pets, somebody’s in the lobby around the clock, concierge services exist, and the list goes on.

Perhaps the most interesting feature of the AMLI Design District is that these units start as low as $1,393 a month, making them the second-most affordable luxury apartment solution on this short list.

Finding The Best Units For You And Yours In Dallas

Everything is bigger in Texas, and that includes apartment living. You can get more for less in Dallas right now. For half the price of a basic closet in L.A., you can get the cream of the crop in terms of local luxury. And these are just the tip of the iceberg. There are quite a few apartments in Rowlett, TX worth looking into as well, adjacent to Dallas, and with prices starting low as $879 a month.

What’s the most interesting about the five luxury apartment communities glossed over in this writing is that they truly are top-of-the-line, and centrally located in Texas. But you can get even more for even less if you set your sites outside the city proper. It all depends on what your needs are, and what your intentions are in Texas.

Still, if you’re going to go “luxury”, Texas makes a lot of sense. You can’t get nearly the sort of opulent appointments at those prices in most of the country. Even Denver has living expenses comparable to Los Angeles. So look at Texas if you haven’t. There are gems there.
