If we have not told you before, we are telling you now: we are living differently in Dallas.

Baby boomers are leaving their large homes, shedding the most square footage consumption in the history of the world. No other generation has lived in such grand homes as have the Boomers. And when it comes time to exit those grand homes for downsized living, many living “the transition” are not sure that they want to buy a condo. They love the concept of less maintenance, smaller living spaces, and reduced clutter, but fear they may miss a home.

Enter the McKenzie, a new truly luxury apartment complex by StreetLights Residential that will be the first truly luxury high rise apartment in North Texas. 

“You won’t feel like you’re in an apartment,” says Kyle Crews, whose Allie Beth Allman Urban team is marketing the 183 unit building on Harvard, across the street from Allie Beth Allman’s world headquarters, just steps from the Katy Trail.  “The finish out is going to have a huge custom feel, and this is a perfect option for homeowners who are not yet completely sold on high rise living.”

The building will be complete this summer, but leases have already been signed, including one for a penthouse apartment.

The McKenzie’s neighbors — Javier’s, Talley Dunn Gallery, and Allie Beth Allman & Associates threw a Cinquo de Mayo celebration for their new neighbor last Saturday at Talley Dunn Gallery. Javier’s provided food and margaritas. The event was also a chance to view the work of two giant artists at the gallery, Joseph Glasco and Helen Altman.
