The Glass House is one building, very tall, with 375 apartments inside. All of the apartments are accessible from a primary elevator set. You walk through the extensive lobby, enjoy a free beverage and then head to the elevators. As you enter to get on the elevator, you will love the digital TVs mounted inside the elevators that are usually focused on sports of news. The apartments all have a LOFT feel (some plans more than others). They start from the small one bedroom tiny studio units to larger elite penthouses. There are one and two bedroom floorplans, and quite a few of them! FYI, that is another thing I do love about the Glass House. I like it when you can rent something at even a relatively inexpensive price under $2,000, but still enjoy the same amenities as someone paying $10,000 a month for the penthouse! Also, the apartments are priced according to the FLOOR. There are definitely some fantastic downtown and city views at the higher floors. Those views are going to come at a premium, but the premium is not ridiculous. Here are some of attractive features of the apartments at the Glass House: • LIGHT, lots of light – Each room is always going to have pretty much wall to ceiling windows inside the living room at a minimum, and often in the bedroom as well if it faces the outer wall. • Recently built Appliances – Ovens, microwaves, counters, everything…it is very recently installed. • Hardwoods or Concrete Floors – You are going to always have hardwood or concrete floors in all apartments here. One bedrooms have more concrete options. • More Minimalistic interior – The interiors are minimalistic and modern. • LOFT looking – The ceilings are CONCRETE, with an exposed, unfinished concrete look. Also there are typically curved walls on the outer rooms. • Balconies – the majority of apartments have balconies. If you want some fantastic views, you can have them!... and enjoy them on an outdoor balcony. When hardwood or concrete floors extend through the main living and dining areas. The bedroom mainly has carpet, with the exception of a few plans (such as the smaller studio units). I also like to detail any weaknesses I see. I do feel the Glass House has some areas they could improve, so please note: • Washer/dryer not included SOMETIMES – The washer/dryer set is included more often than not. However, about 25% of the floorplans do NOT include this needed appliance set. Take note. • Closets can be smaller – The closet space is rarely huge in many of the floorplans. Sometimes it is just plain small. • No walls for bedrooms – Many of the one bedroom floorplans are true “loft” style. That means that they don’t have doors for the bedrooms, among other things. • Pricing is sometimes high for the square feet – Pricing per square feet on the Glass House can be higher at times than most other Uptown Dallas apartments.

Our car got broken into the day before Thanksgiving. On the morning after Thanksgiving, I gave these guys a call. They had someone out that afternoon to replace the window. Very quick, courteous, and professional. Also, their price was very competitive.
