Oak Lawn

   
For many years the Oaklawn area of Dallas represented the closest thing to urban living offered in Dallas, with apartments and condominiums situated next to single-family residences. Retail and residential have co-existed in this pocket neighborhood on the fringes of downtown Dallas for many years, and have maintained their values through many market trends. Situated along historic Turtle Creek, Oaklawn’s blend of ethnicity and urban living attracts both upscale buyers for elegant high-rises along Turtle Creek, and buyers for many affordable garden condominiums and townhomes available in the area. Perry Heights, an exclusively residential area within Oaklawn developed in the 1920’s and 30’s, conveys the neighborhood feel of the era and is within walking distance of urban activity.
