If it’s all about location, location, location, then The Shelby Residences in East Dallas’ new University Crossing neighborhood has it nailed.

Situated near Mockingbird Lane and Greenville Avenue at 5609 SMU Blvd., this 55-unit contemporary residence is just steps away from The Katy Trail, and a five-minute walk to Mockingbird Station and the DART light rail, making most of Dallas a train ride away.

This puts residents in the heart of one of the most desirable parts of Dallas—there are over 20 restaurants within walking distance! It’s just one of the reasons Phases I and II are over 75 percent sold out, and phase III sales are brisk.

Visit to this up-and-coming neighborhood and its most stylish condos on Tuesday, March 22, at 5:30 p.m. for a Special Evening Open House at The Shelby Residences. Stop by for light bites and beverages, live music from Dan Quinn Band, and a trunk show from the Trunk Club Dallas.

During the event, take a guided tour of the two beautiful model homes designed by Cheryl Ketner Interiors. Don’t miss the residence’s onsite amenities; highlights include an outdoor rooftop terrace with fire pits and seating areas, a dog park, and a fully equipped fitness center.

“The supreme location of The Shelby Residences, coupled with its fresh modern elements, make this property stand out,” said The Shelby Residences’ Sales Associate Julie Quigley. “We are newly remodeled and all residences come standard with Puccini Porcelain wood grain floors, quartz countertops, custom cabinets, and stainless appliances.”

The “Torrey Pines” color palette is sleek and chic, with black quartz countertops, white contrasting cabinets, and a tailored look. The “Le Mans” color palette offers white crystal quartz counters; dove gray cabinets; and an array of soft, light grays and creams creating a soft, welcoming feel.

Amenities are another standout for The Shelby Residences. Common areas are filled with contemporary art, and residents can take in views of downtown Dallas from the Owners’ Lounge and rooftop terrace, as well as from many of the residences.

In the Owners’ Lounge, two large televisions (60-inch and 38-inch flatscreens) make for a relaxing, fun space, which residents can reserve for private events. The same hold true for the rooftop terrace, where there are fire pits, lounge seating, gas grills, and dining areas.

Other amenities include a private dog park and well-equipped fitness area.

Prices for The Shelby condos range from $193,000 to $381,000, and 752 to 1,217 square feet in 1-1 and 2-2 options. Monthly HOA fees are $0.26 cents per square foot.

“The price point allows for renters to become homeowners, as well as financially savvy people investing in their future,” Quigley said. “We offer a low-stress lifestyle where you don’t have to depend on your car for the everyday necessities, plus a strong sense of community and a neighborhood vibe that buyers of all age crave.”

    Overall nice and trendy, but I must (yes, must…LOL) say that the one sure-fire way to make a kitchen look cheap is to use a range with a back on it. Slide-in ranges look so much better and less clunky. And besides, who wants to be reaching over boiling water and spattering bacon to diddle controls (that should be in front of the heating elements)?

      I totally agree. It is the little details like that make the difference between its former rental self and condo. I do like that the cabinets go all the way to the ceiling and dont look like generic builder grade units. This place would mostly attract singles or parents looking for units for their SMU kids so i dont think it would be too big of a deal
