I've got a possible job offer in McKinney, TX, which would be located downtown. The historic downtown area looks really nice and I'm wondering if there are any apartment complexes to rent within walking distance of downtown. I can't find much on a Google search. If not walking distance, then I'd appreciate any nice but reasonably priced 1-BR or studio apartment rentals in the area. Also any advice in general on a newcomer to McKinney--single, liberal GenX geek who loves dogs & would like to meet new people with similar interests.

Thanks for any info!

Just like most cities in North Dallas, I would stay away from East side (of 75). East = low income, west = upper income

I'll let Parker, Fairview, Lakewood and Lake Highlands know that they're low income, and congratulate West Dallas on being the poorest upper income neighborbood in tbe metroplex. What terrible advice!

OP, I haven't spent enough time in downtown McKinney to know what apartment options are close by, but the historic downtown square is charming and bustling, and the adjacent historical district is pretty great, too!

I said North Dallas, I don't consider anything you mentioned North. 5min drive up from downtown isn't really North, North = above 635

Before you start making accusations how about you get your facts right, smh. What a TERRIBLE person!

These should come online next year. Not too familiar with the current apartments.

Silly. There are great properties in the historic district and there are properties getting torn down and rebuilt in a way that fit the neighborhood.

So where are Fairview and Parker? Last I checked, they are well north of 635.

And smh right back at you because Dallasites should know "north Dallas" IS south of 635, including Lake Highlands. Far North Dallas is north of 635. And the CoCo suburbs are north OF Dallas. A "city in North Dallas" can only refer to Dallas itself.

@Aceraceae - that mixed use development looks cool. I'd love to find a nice apartment within walking distance of downtown because I just like the idea of a walkable neighborhood and an easy walk to work. Hard to find in car-dependent Texas, I know.

I don't know of any "nice" apartment complexes around there. The ones I'm familiar seem to lend towards lower income folks.
