ABOUT THE VILLAGE/SMU DALLAS NEIGHBORHOOD
Centrally located and one of the most popular live-work-play areas of the city is The Village, which is a collection of 16 apartment communities that stretches from Lovers Lane to Northwest Highway, East of Highway 75. With a diverse makeup of college students and working professionals, the area provides its residents with a colorful lifestyle that caters to everyone’s individual wants and needs. Located just across Central Expressway, in University Park, is Southern Methodist University. This highly ranked private university gives the area some funky flavor and a college-town feel. With walkable access to iconic spots such as Milo Butterfingers and JD’s Chippery to name a few. Students at SMU are lucky to have a range of spectacular options for apartment, townhome and loft rentals, many of which have luxury features and impressive amenities in addition to being only a short walk to campus.
Another hotspot near SMU is Mockingbird Station, a light rail station that has been beautifully transformed into one of Dallas’ most visited shopping centers. Mockingbird Station’s mixed use buildings offer beautiful apartment rental spaces above and retail shops such as Urban Outfitters, West Elm and Francesca’s below. In addition, the shopping center is home to some great Dallas restaurants such as Urban Taco and Trinity Hall, and with the Angelika Movie Theater, Mockingbird Station consistently comes in as one of the hottest date-night areas in the city.
Also within walking distance to The Village is Upper Greenville Avenue, which has become one of the most popular nightlife spots in Dallas, known for its range of must-try restaurants and jam-packed happy hour joints.
