Hello everyone!

Our family is contemplating on moving near harris methodist in fortworth due to a possible job for hubby in the hospital. we currently live in irving which is about 30miles away from his work.

We are looking to see if north richland hills is a good place to rent a home, or any other places in the area.

I know irving has a north and south side, i don't know if NRH has these too.
we def. wouldn't want to be in the "south" area (we had our share of car break ins in the irving arts district apartment before)

We have a 4 y/o and I am okay with homeschooling him or putting him in a good day care. We might also possibly move somewhere else after 8months for hospital residency for myself so, long term decisions are still not on the table.

Is there any place between ft worth and irving that is similar to the las colinas area in irving?

NRH is nice all over. Pretty much all of the communities north of 183 in Tarrant County are fine places to live. There's nothing like south Irving over here.

as far as being upscale with mix of apartments and commercial/retail--no
there is nothing like Las Colinas really
the So7th area in FTW is similar but smaller, Southlake has some town homes adjacent to Town Center but they are expensive and not true rental property although the owners may be renting them out
and downtown Grapevine has some apartments at the south end but I can't think of any area that is truly "like" Las Colinas

NRhills is very nice--trying to go upscale--good parks system and close to Hurst parks
shopping in area is decent since there is NEMall and you can get to Southlake for shopping or the groceries in Colleyville fairly easily
One apt complex by Krogers on Hwy 29 has retail underneath it with some restaurants, coffee shop

drive into FTW is not that bad on Airport Frwy
but traffic can be congested around the Mall and now that construction is going on Loop 820 it is busy all the time...
