Downtown and Uptown Dallas Condos, Lofts, Homes, and Unique Condominiums

People from all walks of life have migrated to the energetic neighborhoods of Uptown and Downtown Dallas, Texas – living in Center City lofts and condos – enjoying the creative energy of the community.

Take Noel and Zane Aveton. The Dallas Morning News reports the Aveton’s had long been lovers of the most urban of lifestyles so they bought their dream downtown Dallas loft and began remodeling it. Then, Ms. Aveton discovered she was pregnant. Raise a baby in a massive two-story building on Jackson Street, with its exposed ductwork and concrete floors, that once housed a printing company? Why not?, they decided. “It’s about breaking the mold and doing the different thing and making it seem normal.” Beau, their son, doesn’t know any different. “Some kids love to play in the park. Beau loves jumping off curbs and the art museum.”(Click here to watch a video of the Aveton’s urban lifestyle)

Urban pioneers’ Playwright Laterras Whitfield and his daughter, LaTerria, moved into an immaculately decorated condominium at 1505 Elm St. The main attractions: a central location and low maintenance. “And gas is $23 a gallon,” Mr. Whitfield joked. “I can run all my errands by walking.” They have company – the McClains, the Fischers, the Irwins, and the Colletts. All families with young children who have joined the Whitfields at 1505 Elm St.

Talk to Blake. When Blake’s parents divorced, he was shocked his father, Jim, moved into a high-rise condo downtown — not that he’s complaining. “I would so much rather live my life in a condo,” Blake said. “Living in an urban area — there’s so much more to do. Sometimes, I love to just listen to the bells down the street, I love to just come out and sit on the deck and watch everything.” Said Mr. Lumley, “We used to live in a gated community in Fort Worth, and we’ve met more people here than we ever did there. I haven’t regretted a day of it.”

Or talk to Cynthia Widemann. At 2,100 square feet, Cynthia’s loft, eight stories up in the Interurban Building at 1500 Jackson St., is as big as any house. Many of her friends, however, thought it a lousy spot for a home, especially one for her 15-year-old son, Sterling. But, she says, “All it took to change their minds is having them down here once.”

As far as being urban pioneers, Zane Aveton replies, “We get to create our own community, and that’s better than joining something that’s already established. How often do you get to move to a big city and still have a small, warm community?” While saying so, she and her husband looked out their massive window above their kitchen space. Walking up Harwood Street were a young man and women, each pushing a stroller with a baby inside. “We don’t know them, do we?” Noel Aveton asked. “Don’t think so,” his wife replied. “Guess we’ve got someone new to welcome to the neighborhood.”
