The Manchester State Thomas apartments in Uptown Dallas is more like a neighborhood than a simple apartment complex. Simply said, this is one HUGE area and there are many residences to choose from, taking up a lot of space. Manchester State Thomas resides on a very expansive several blocks that border the Highway 75 on the east end and the State Thomas area of town on the west end. It is also bordered by HALL Street, which connects directly to McKinney Avenue, as well as the 75/Central Expressway.
The Manchester State Thomas is a part of the quieter STATE THOMAS area. The State Thomas area overall has a neighborhood feel much like the Manchester…more laid back and quiet. It really is great to walk around the neighborhood on a sunny day, and enjoy the people, dog walkers, joggers and going to some of the local shops.
Walking directly around the Manchester State Thomas: Walking around it is obvious to notice that this really doesn’t look like an apartment complex. This is a very pretty area. The streets have mature trees and a lot of charming looking townhomes. Some of the mini blocks look like a little bit like the “Brownstones” area in Boston. There are also a few sidewalk shops and cafes sprinkled around as well (Thomas Avenue, etc.). It feels very relaxed here.
Getting to work: For getting to work, the Manchester is very convenient if your work is on Central Expressway or downtown. You can quickly get out on 75/Central, which leads to either downtown in a few minutes or north Dallas in about 20 minutes (think around 75/Central).
Access to the 4 Key Features of Uptown: There are 4 Key Features of Uptown that get you access to a better social life and fun. For Uptown, a huge key is being in QUICK walking access to these features. We think quick access means to be in 7 minutes walking or under. Here is how the Manchester State Thomas does in terms of being able to walk to the 4 Key Features of Uptown Dallas:
- Uptown Trolley – Manchester State Thomas IS WALKING DISTANCE to the FREE (that’s right!) Uptown Trolley. That trolley will take you to all 4 key features, along McKinney Avenue. The Manchester State Thomas is within about 7 minutes walking distance to the pickup spot at ALLEN and MCKINNEY AVENUE.
- Night Life in Mid-Section – The “super cluster” section of night clubs along McKinney Avenue is NOT within quick walking distance. This super cluster starts around Boll Street and ends around Holland. But, you could get there in about 10 minutes.
- West Village – The Manchester is in more of the mid section of Uptown. In the NORTH, there is the WEST VILLAGE, with so many shops and restaurants, all in a few blocks. The West Village is NOT in walking distance. Need to drive to get there, but in just a few minutes.
- Katy Trail –The Katy Trail is NOT in walking distance. Closest point is found by going down Hall Street (bordering the property). Probably about 13 minutes walking.
