We recently decided to downsize and will be traveling quite a bit for the next few years. Looking at townhouses and condos in the Mockingbird Dart Station area. Don't want a house! Have looked at a couple of places and are probably close to making an offer by the weekend. Any insight about the area would be appreciated.

Traffic is a nightmare in and around Mockingbird Station. That's all I really have to add to that.

It's a very convenient area. Minutes away Uptown, NorthPark, Lower Greenville, SMU, Knox-Henderson, Highland Park and lots of grocery/shopping choices.

Eh traffic is not that bad and it is hopping area with SOOO much to do. I think it is an excellent choice. AND you can ride the train from there to anywhere.

It's safe and well-located. I like to walk & run so don't love the amount of traffic and the way dart rail & commercial cuts you off from the surrounding neighborhoods.

I'd prefer to live in Knox-Henderson over Mockingbird Station. More easily walkable, more restaurants & shopping, easier access to Katy Trail.

Thanks for the comments! We are looking all over, even downtown. We desire a lock and leave kind of place with garage for 2 cars and amenities such as outdoor area, pool, outdoor hot spa, walk to movies and restaurants, proximity to public transport, too! So the Mockingbird station area seems to fit the bill. But, we have no urgency to make a decision as we have adequate temp living right now (we own rental properties and are staying in one of our properties) and complete flexibility.
