Beat Unit 505 Living

I’m going to predict 2015 as the year of the condo. You can quote me on this. I think that, with so many cool projects — both mixed use and residential only — planned and coming on line next year, you’ll see a much more robust condo market. That’s good for Dallas, a city that is known for its sprawl, as we try to concentrate more of our homeowners in dense, urban areas. Now if we could just get our sidewalks figured out …

But, one of the neatest buildings in the urban core is one that is accessible both by location and price. That’s the Beat Condos in the Cedars. It’s a gorgeous building just south of downtown at 1001 Belleview Street. Not only does this building have tons of great amenities, including a saltwater pool, a spa, and a huge deck where you can hang out, enjoy the view, and just relax, but it is in one of the hottest neighborhoods in Dallas. There will be an Alamo Drafthouse Theater moving in just down the street next year, and there’s more where that came from, too.

And Unit 505? Well, let’s just say that it lives up to the “high-caliber” moniker. It’s a unit that you’ll fall in love with, and when you fall in love, you don’t want any trouble at closing. That’s where Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans comes in. Lisa, who is an experienced mortgage professional, can make sure that you get through pre-approval and closing without a single stumble.

Buzz Unit 409 Buzz Lofts

Is the Cedars — a neighborhood of once-industrial properties just south of downtown — the next big thing in Dallas?

If you’re to answer that question with the number of new and upcoming projects in the neighborhood, which include a new Alamo Drafthouse and a redeveloped Plaza Hotel using TIF funds, as well as the number of businesses attracted to the area, then yes, it’s the “next big thing.” But for those who live in any of the myriad cool loft developments in the area, it’s always been a great place to be.

2401 S. Ervay Rooftop

Here’s a fun property in a neighborhood that is growing like unchecked bamboo! The Cedars, one of the last still-wild urban neighborhoods in Dallas has so many cool condo and loft properties, including this amazing penthouse unit in the Coombs Creek Condos building.

What’s even better is that this unit will be within walking distance to the new Alamo Drafthouse slated for the corner of Cadiz and South Lamar — caddy-corner to Gilley’s Dallas — come 2015. This is going to be such a boon for the neighborhood, bringing in daily foot-traffic and enhancing the cultural quotient of the area. Plus, they have a zero-tolerance policy when it comes to cellphones in the theater, so they obviously get my business! There’s one in Richardson, but if you’re south of 635 and want to spare yourself the hike, well, this one will be opening next year!
