“Backwards” Skyline Views from The Beat Lofts

Gosh, how time flies.  It seems like only eight years weeks ago that we began this journey highlighting Dallas’ high-rise options for winged home buyers.  Now I guess it’s back to grazing through Wednesday broker open houses, snacking on steam-table tacos like Costco on a Saturday for us all. And while I am dubious this will be any readers inaugural entry to this series, I’m including the links nonetheless.

Oh so long ago, this all started with two columns discussing the merits of buildings that include utilities in their HOA dues (here, here) many of which are lower-priced buildings. A House Porn duo of Dallas’ most expensive high-rises (here, here) came next before continuing into what passes for a high-rise mid-market (here, here).

Lofts are great for people who want wide-open floorplans, high ceilings, and great views, but sometimes lofts can feel somewhat cramped with small square-footage and bathrooms that feel like converted closets. That’s what makes this doubled-up unit inside the SoCo building so unique. Not only does it have fantastic downtown views thanks to its spot on the ninth floor, eight-foot windows, exposed brick, and upgraded fixtures, but it has 2,172 square feet.
