Practically anywhere in FW, seriously. It also depends on the industry. There are pharmaceutical companies (Alcon, in S. Fort Worth) and many other pharmaceutical companies in Irving and the mid-cities (not to mention Dallas). High Tech everywhere, telecom, defense industries. There are professional areas all over. Now, if you're talking about a more yuppie lifestyle, you might want to live downtown. It's hard to tell where you are coming from but practically any area in Fort Worth, a young professional can live and be happy. Do you want to own a home or rent? Do you like a downtown loft or a home in a new development or secluded, wooded older development. There are many, many options.
I live in a FW suburb, but to be honest, when I think cosmopolitan, Dallas more readily comes to mind. The downtown Dallas area is filling up with upscale high rise apartments and such. Not that Fort Worth is lacking in those areas, just not as many places like that. All in all, I like Fort Worth alot, it's a great city. One word of caution however; I hope you can tolerate hot summers that last from June to almost October.

LOL!!!! Let's see on Thanksgiving Day we were in shorts, or short sleeves - temps were in the low 70's. It was nice and pleasant, sunny and warm. Kids could play outside. That weekend it was sunny and a humid breeze. A week later we had cold wind, rain turning to sleet/freezing rain and then to snow. The high was around 32 and that was around midnight and got colder as the day went on. Today there is some patchy ice spots but not much at all (only in very shady places w/ no traffic or where some moron left their sprinklers on last night) with high getting into the low 40's and sunny. Tomorrow is supposed to be sunny and mid-50's. This coming Tuesday is supposed to be near 70.

That pretty much sums up what the weather can be from October - May. Hot one day and freezing cold the next. If you don't like to wear a heavy coat and your not outside all day then you will love it.

There is a great community in Ft Worth that would be great for young professionals. Sendera Ranch is a large community in NW Ft Worth near the Texas Motor Speedway and close to shopping and stuff.

There are some really cool new apartments on the Trinity River called Gallery 1701. I moved in a few months ago and am the first person to live in my apt. The building is full of mainly young professionals and I have met several new friends at the community happy hours and other events. My apt has granite countertops, wood floors, stainless steel appliances, walk in HUGE marble tub and I love it! The website is [url=http://www.gallery1701.com]Gallery1701[/url]

depends on what you mean by "young professional" - if you're in one of the few industries that has a presence in fort worth, i suppose anywhere is good (that is if you don't want to be able to walk or bike n e where - there's only a few places in fw where that's possible, everywhere else it's generic sprawl-ville of the worst kind) - if you're in a creative industry then forget it, run far away from fw. there is nothing for creative types here in fw.
