Kyle Lyon of Keller Williams Urban sent us a fabulous tip about this two-bedroom condo at The Centrum, one of Dallas’ most unique and exclusive residential high-rises. This two-bedroom, two-bath unit at 3111 Wellborn #1202, which has 2,084 square feet, is listed for $750,000. And according to the team at Keller Williams Urban who offered this helpful comparison of surrounding high-rises, The Centrum Tower and Residences in Oak Lawn is a great deal. (more…)

I can see jealousy at the Crescent Court

The most pleasantly surprising moments at last evening’s event at The Jordan apartments were not when the the wine flowed out of bottles named “Jordan,” or when we oohed and ahhed over the cove-lit ceilings in the penthouse units. No, it was when we spied residents using the outdoor barbecues.  I’ve lived in many an apartment with communal barbecues where you could get grill marks on your steak without even firing it up … just laying it on the rusty unused grates gave you all the “sear” marks you’d want.

But last night, between tours of The Jordan’s luscious units, I saw a steady stream of residents making their way to the communal barbecues to fix dinner. A little skewered shrimp here, a little salmon there, a big ‘ol steak. It sounds like a small thing, but it hints at a community that feels at home.

Update: The date of our CandysDirt.com Staff Meeting has been changed to June 30 because we didn’t want to compete with D Magazine’s annual Best Realtor bash, which takes place tonight. See you on the 30th of June; your invitation is in the mail!

Believe it or not, sometimes Candysdirt.com leaves its mansion-filled, penthouse-scented world of million-dollar down-payments.  I recently visited the open-since-March The Jordan high-rise apartments in Uptown.  On June 30, The Jordan and CandysDirt.com will co-host a Staff Meeting Open House to showcase a new standard in high-rise apartment living.
