Each Dallas neighborhood offers its own set of advantages. For residents studying, researching, or working at UT Southwestern Medical Center, Medical District apartments are convenient and practical. Depending on what you’re looking for from a neighborhood, apartments near UT Southwestern could be great for you even if you’re not affiliated with the university. Read more about the benefits of living in Dallas’ Medical District to learn whether an apartment in the neighborhood is right for you.
Proximity to Downtown and Uptown
Proximity to the various medical facilities in the area is probably the neighborhood’s biggest draw. But the Medical District is also one of the most affordable Dallas neighborhoods with convenient access to the city center. Downtown Dallas, and the wealth of cultural and culinary excitement it offers, is just five minutes from the neighborhood light rail station. Uptown Dallas’ upscale retail and dining options are also a quick DART ride away. Another selling point of the neighborhood’s location is proximity to Dallas Love Field Airport, a five-minute drive from AMLI on Maple.
Strong demand for apartments has raised the cost of living in Dallas’ Medical District, but it’s still cheaper than most other neighborhoods in the vicinity. Considering its convenient location and reputation for safety, living in the Medical District can be a bargain. Some of the newer apartments near UT Southwestern have resort-style pools, state-of-the-art fitness centers, and other upscale amenities that make life comfortable and convenient.
Texas Woman’s University, the largest in the country that caters primarily to women, is located on the southern edge of the Medical District. AMLI on Maple is just a three-minutes drive from where students studying at the university’s health science center study and work. The University of Dallas, with departments for the study of liberal arts, business, and ministry, is a ten-minute drive northwest of AMLI’s Medical District apartments. The proximity of these institutions to UT Southwestern’s medical school and centers makes the Medical District a student-centric neighborhood.
Restaurants and services
Even though downtown Dallas is just a five-minute commute, you don’t have to venture far for groceries or to get your ethnic cuisine fix. Thai2Go serves quick, affordable curries. Avila’s dishes up your Tex-Mex standards. Sal’s can satisfy your New-York style pizza cravings. And Maple & Motor has great burgers. There’s also the Original Market Diner, and several restaurants to choose from just south in the Design District. The neighborhood also has a Kroger, CVS, and a Starbucks. And, it probably goes without saying, first-rate health care specialists in virtually every area of medicine.
