Multigenerational living is a big buzzword in the housing market, as Baby Boomers move in with their kids, adult children move in with their parents, and everyone figures out how to live together harmoniously.
But in the world of condos, that’s rarely the situation. Most condo buildings seem to have a demographic they attract, and residents tend to be around the same age.
That’s not the case at The Shelby Residences in East Dallas’ University Crossing neighborhood. We recently attended their fall social event and noticed the huge range of residents, from college students to folks past retirement.
This is a big achievement for The Shelby, a 55-unit building just renovated with phase I sales starting in the summer of 2015. The building had been apartments, but the Marquis Group purchased it and decided to do an overhaul into chic condo living, said Denise Edmondson, Principal Broker and Sales Director for PowerPlay Texas, which works with Marquis Group to sell condos at The Shelby Residences.
“It’s an interesting case study, seeing everyone meld together and get along as one community,” Edmondson said. “Everyone has a common thread with healthy, active urban living—The Shelby Residences appeal to all ages.”
