For this week’s Tuesday Two Hundred, we’re looking at a hip downtown loft, 1001 Belleview Street #401. This condo is located in the Beat Lofts, a 10-story, 75-unit building in the heart of the revitalized South Side neighborhood, also known as the Cedars.
This corner unit is a 2-1.5 and 1,336 square feet, listed for $299,999 by Natalie Newberry at Clay Stapp + Co. I love the marriage of urban and midcentury styles in this loft. Jump to read more!
The Beat Lofts residential tower was built in 2007 by Jack Matthews, the same man who transformed the historic Sears building into the South Side on Lamar and created the Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel. It is located south of East R.L. Thornton Highway, near Lamar and Cadiz streets, and was designed by Corgan Associates.
Unit 401 has floor-to-ceiling glass walls in the living room and 12-foot ceilings throughout. The two balconies offer stellar views of downtown, Fair Park, and the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, and are wired for surround sound, as is the rest of the loft.
The condo has exposed ductwork, custom ceiling fans, and new lighting throughout. The open floorplan and walls of windows floor the space with light. Love that atomic-era fixture.
Each unit in the building has its own 50-gallon water heater, stand-alone HVAC system, separately metered electric and water, and assigned private garage parking. Safety-wise, there are fire sprinklers in each unit, and fire-rated partitions between units.
The kitchen is recently upgraded, with European-style cabinetry in a dark mocha finish, Silestone quartz countertops, glass tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances. There are Kohler fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms, as well.
The living room measures 29-by-12 and has a turquoise accent wall for a pop of color against the neutrals of the sealed concrete floors and ceilings and the silver ductwork.
The master bedroom measures 15-by-12 and has a rolling panel door on metal rails. There are custom window treatments, a walk-in closet, and an updated ensuite bathroom. It has a double vanity, Silestone quartz countertops, modern fixtures, European cabinets with a dark mocha stain, and walk-in shower.
The current owners are using the second bedroom as an office, and have built a desk in the room. It measures 13-by-11 and has the same custom window coverings as the master.
The neighborhood is a major selling point for this condo. The Beat Lofts are in the center of dining, live music, and culture near downtown. Residents can walk to places like the soon-to-open Alamo Drafthouse for dinner and drinks, Poor David’s Pub for local music, Gilley’s for dancing, and bigger acts at South Side Ballroom. The Cedars has a grocery store now, Urban Market, so no need to drive to get the basics.
The building is adjacent to Cedars DART Rail Station, pictured below, which means quick access to the largest arts district in the Unites States, games at the American Airlines Center at Victory Plaza, and anyplace else served by DART’s rail or connecting buses.
HOA fees are $347 per month and include one garage parking space (for guests, there is metered parking before 6 p.m. in front of building), as well as 24-hour security, but with a location across the street from Dallas Police Department headquarters, residents should feel pretty safe.
Fees also include access to the building’s amenity deck has a saltwater pool and hot tub, several grilling stations, two fire pits, a picnic area, putting green, shaded deck, pergola with designer outdoor furniture, and free wifi. Downstairs, there are landscaped green spaces and a dog park adjacent to the building.
