The location is great and the building is nice. Be very aware of parking as they tow. Also, MUST give 60 days notice before you move out, even if your contract expires, or else they will absolutely charge you the cost of rent, or 85% of your rent cost, even if someone moves in your apartment. I missed the fine print on my contract and 2 weeks prior to my contract expiring, I was told I had to give 60 day notice and I was still charged. Also, as I was having my apartment clean, I was told by the office stuff not to worry about it as they will still send someone out, which cost $129, but I wasn't told about the cleaning fee. My apartment had a great view of the downtown, but the living room was too small. It had an island in the kitchen and no space for a kitchen table, so I had to chose between a living room furniture or a kitchen table. They have different floor plans though. Pick up your mail boxes fast at the concierge, or they will be returned without further notice. The pool on the 7 floor and the view from it is very nice.
Cool building, with a very nice view. Staff were very helpful.
I LOVE living here! Beautiful and convenient. The pool is fabulous and the concierge and staff are always available and always super helpful! The building is also nice and quiet for being so close to the highway/ city.
Being in this area…I feel safe. Generally, downtown Dallas is safer than most downtowns. But, this area feels much safer and has less activity. Not only is the Park 17 building very nice looking, but so are most of the surrounding buildings. It is a clean area to be in as well. The style of the Gables Park 17 apartments is modern but sensible. There are some very attractive kitchens, living rooms and bath areas, complete with beautiful floors, sparkling appliances and other innovative features. They really get the modern feel right, but without going overboard or being “too” artistic. The apartment is very inviting and comfortable feeling. Perfect place for having a small party to impress. I found the Gables Park 17 apartment had these Strengths: • Gorgeous Kitchens – The kitchen just didn’t have any weak spots. Pretty green subway backsplash tile. Plenty of cabinet space…PLENTY! Even glass front cabinets. Sooo nice! • Granite Countertops – They were thick and beautiful. • Hardwood Floors – Not only are they pretty, but they were the GROOVED kind. Not hand scraped, but close. (I wish the floors were a little lighter, because it would make things look bigger and more inviting.) • Patios/Balconies INCLUDED – And that is a big deal, because you have some fantastic views here. • PLENTY OF GLASS – All glass walls that look over Downtown and Uptown Dallas brighten up the apartment big time! • Newer appliances – Stainless steel appliances, and higher tier brands as well. They didn’t cut corners on this one. • Nice size Closets – These closets are large, love them! • Programmable Thermostat – This is a BIG deal! If you travel a lot or don’t work out of your apartment, would it be nice to have your thermostat adjust to make your utilities cheaper while you are gone? Only a few places in Uptown have this great feature, and Park 17 is one of the few. • Washer/dryer INCLUDED – very nice. AREAS OF IMPROVEMENT: • No walk in showers – Not many people I know use a tub much. Instead, we love the walk in shower. The Gables Park 17 had the standard tub/shower combo, however. • No Gas – Really would like to have seen gas ovens here. Not that the oven was bad, it was nice. But, just not gas.

Right next to loud night club and they tow .,very rough crowd. Plumbing problems in whole building a sewage smell comes up your pipes . Garage has ventilation issues, fills up with smoke from restaurant 2nd fl up parking .. Staff in office are rude if you ask me. They show your apartment when your give notice to move out. Elevators break over a month to fix ! The building is nice but the apartment is poorly built. Pick a place where they appreciate your business.
