It's always sunny in Fort Worth

If you have ever been to Fort Worth you will recognize the Montgomery Ward Building.  Built in 1928 on West 7th St., near the Trinity River and downtown Fort Worth, it was one of the regional retail and mail order warehouses for the retail company, Montgomery Ward.  Numerous Fort Worthians will tell of visits to the mammoth building as youngsters with fond memories.

The shelby dallas

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.

Tabak HomeWith the large number of people moving to downtown Dallas and the boom in available housing, nearby neighborhood are influenced, as well. Today’s Thursday Three Hundred is just such an example.

The condo at 4401 Roseland Ave. Unit B, near Carroll and Ross avenues, is in the newly christened “East Village” area. It’s one of three units built together, and is three levels and open-concept, with an open terrace on the middle level. It offers two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, a half bathroom, and 2,000 square feet.

The curb appeal is stylish, with a cedar veneered two-car garage door and cedar extending up the façade, onto the 250-square-foot private terrace on the second level. The modern look extends inside, too, with polished concrete floors, European lacquered cabinets in the kitchen, and a chic master bathroom with a frameless glass shower.

This home was listed Monday by Steven Rigely with Rogers Healy and Associates for $399,000, and mandatory HOA fees are $250 per month. There’s an open house this Sunday, Oct. 25, from 1-3 p.m. If you stop by, let us know what you think!

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!
