The Location of the Alara Uptown
Completed in 2012, Alara Uptown Apartments is a 5 story mid-rise that blends in perfectly with the area. It is attractive and tastefully constructed, with muted exterior brick colors of brown and white stone. It sits directly next to the MONDRIAN CITYPLACE, which is also reviewed in another article.
The location of the Alara Uptown Apartments is first of all convenient. Since it is right next to the highway, you have a very quick access using 75/Central to downtown work or entertainment/shopping to the north. Additionally, the location is easily walkable to the West Village, within a couple of minutes (essentially almost across the street). Further, the location is also quickly walkable to the CityPlace West stop on the Dart Rail. You can use this to either ride the Dart Rail to downtown OR catch the Uptown (Free) trolley. The Uptown Trolley is a delight for this area, and provides service all up and down McKinney Avenue up until 12 midnight on the weekends (sometimes later). Think of this as a free taxi service!
