4111 Gilbert Avenue #211 Front

For someone moving to Dallas from a more densely populated city, our reliance on cars can be baffling at first. They’ll move to somewhere in East Dallas or Oak Cliff and realize that they’re going to spend 30 minutes in the car just to get to work downtown. POPPYCOCK. Why do that when you can get an adorable flat right in uptown for less than $300,000?

This is a super-cute contemporary condo right off of Gilbert, and it’s ready and waiting for a new urban-minded owner. Not only is it recently built, but this location is totally walkable! If you like what you see, call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today to get pre-approved and ready to put in an offer! An adorable condo like this one doesn’t come around often, especially at this price, so don’t wait — call Lisa Peters at Caliber Home Loans today.

Azure condos

Have you ever wished you could peek inside a luxury high rise and compare condos? What’s different? What’s the same? Why are they sometimes priced thousands of dollars apart?

Today, we’re doing just that in our Thursday Three Hundred.

The Azure is a 31-story building in a tony Uptown location, 2900 McKinnon St., with panoramic views of downtown, Uptown, and Victory Park. Built in 2005, the Azure is shiny and new, and very much in demand.

Azure condos

I’ve chosen two similar units in the Azure that are currently on the market, units 607 and 803, that are $35,000 apart in price. Both are one bedroom, 1.5 bath with terraces. Both have access to the amenities at the Azure, like:

  • A visually arresting two-story glass lobby with a water feature and large sculpture (pictured at the top of the post)
  • 24-hour security, concierge, and valet
  • Junior Olympic-sized infinity pool with hot tub, landscaping, wood deck, lounge chairs, pergolas and grill area, located on the roof of the parking garage
  • Theater/media room
  • Resident community center
  • Fitness center

Unit 607 is 881 square feet, listed by Jarrad Barnes and Joseph Gullotto at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $395,000, or $448 a square foot. This unit has mandatory monthly HOA fees of $577 a month (based on square footage), which include a private parking garage, a feature unique to the Azure.

Unit 803 is 952 square feet, listed by Emily Ray-Porter and Henry Barber at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $360,000 (reduced from $375,000), or $378 a square foot. This unit has HOA fees of $643 a month, which also include a private one-car garage.

Let’s check out both Azure condos and see what they offer!

Uptown condo

Dallas architect Ron Wommack has an impressive portfolio of contemporary residential designs, including the Mitchell Lofts, Buena Vista Townhomes, and Commerce Street Townhomes.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is another of his designs in the 4111 Cole Condos, near Fitzhugh and Central Expressway. Unit 24 is 1,090 square feet with two bedrooms and two bathrooms in a prime location. 4111 Cole Condos is located steps away from Katy Trail, the Knox-Henderson shopping and entertainment district, and close to West Village.

The buildings of this Uptown condo have simple, clean lines, with a white and silver-colored palette. The community features include modern landscaping, a secure, gated entrance, swimming pool, and large wood deck with lounge chairs.

The interior of the condo reflects that contemporary feel, with open spaces, simple lines, and modern lighting and details. There are light-colored wood floors in the main living areas, Carrera marble counters in the kitchen and bathrooms, and modern landscaping.

There are mandatory monthly HOA fees of $308, which include access to the pool, blanket insurance, exterior maintenance, front yard maintenance, water, and sewer.

It is listed by Emily Ray Porter with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate for $230,000.
