This building is the joke of downtown, I don't know if it's for the sub far management company which is been retained to operate the building (UAH) or the pathetic excuse of a managers in which they've hired which is so… Full Review ▶


I have been a tenant at DP&L since January of this year and have noticed a marked improvement in the management of the building, as well as the tenancy since the new manager started. Apparently, the previous manager had been allowing… Full Review ▶


I have lived in this building for over three years now. The building used to be a wonderful property! About three months ago we got a new manager. At the first pool meet and greet they had to introduce him to… Full Review ▶


I have lived downtown for a number of years, but have never lived in a building so poorly managed. The girls in the leasing office seem helpful and sweet, but the new management doesn't seem to care about the property, communicating… Full Review ▶

I'm going to give you a perspective you won't read anyplace else. This recently occurred and affected 38 residents. The former manager of several years was embezzling money. 38 residents were recently given 24 hour eviction notices because there was no… Full Review ▶


I have lived here for a little over a year and I really have enjoyed it. There are resident events 1-3 times a month that are fun and help introduce all the neighbors. The staff has been amazing, professional, and treat… Full Review ▶

Prospective Resident

I moved to Dallas form Chicago just under a year ago. I have always been living downtown so the DPL had me curious. I had called a week in advance to set up a walk through. It was all arranged and… Full Review ▶


*****DO NOT LIVE HERE***** Update to original review (and change to only 1 star): We still had five days left on our lease and were paid in full. We moved all of our big furniture out on a Sunday and planned… Full Review ▶


What other renters say is true. All they care about is the rent. The "24 hour" security is a joke. You call about loud parties and they do nothing. The apartment director told me "well the pool just gets loud in… Full Review ▶


I moved in to the Dallas Power and Light building in November of 2011 and have really enjoyed living here. The building is constantly holding resident events and happy hours. My neighbors are very friendly and they never disturb me. The… Full Review ▶


The Dallas Power and Light has the potential of being a great place to live if it only had a staff and managing office that cared about it. It would be a show case! The apartments are spacious and offer great… Full Review ▶


I recently moved from north Dallas to the up and coming new downtown Dallas and decided on the DP&L flats located between Jackson St. and Commerce near the Magnolia hotel. I am born and raised from New Orleans, LA; therefore, I… Full Review ▶


Sorry to say, this is an amazing building and I have a few great neighbors... But, this property is not being taken care of and seem to be falling apart at the seams. Routine maintenance is missed, safety lights are out… Full Review ▶


I have lived in the DP&L building for a little over a year now. As with any apartment complex, there are pros and cons. Here's my take on some of the issues listed in previous posts. Parking - I agree with… Full Review ▶


I have lived her for 5 full months now, and so far I'm really enjoying it. My neighbors are really nice (not that the office can control that) and I've never been concerned about my safety... there is not a "security… Full Review ▶


Living in Dallas Power and Light was an absolutely horrible experience. The first day I moved in I parked in my assigned parking space only to have a dirty note on my car saying it wasn't my space. So i told… Full Review ▶


Cons: 1. Only one lightswitch that controls the entry way, kitchen and dining room lights. Bad planning or the contractor cut corners. 2. Walls are thin. If your neighbor has loud sex or a loud alarm clock, then heaven help you.… Full Review ▶


Overall, I'm pleased with my experience at DP&L. I've been there for eight months now, and while it's far from perfect, I've gotten pretty much the downtown living experience I wanted. I've become accustomed to the downtown noise, including the drunk… Full Review ▶


I have lived in DPL for a year. I was concerned about the noise in the beginning as my place has windows that open to the pool and Fuse. It has been really cool. They have started playing really great ambient… Full Review ▶

Prospective Resident

Ok. I'm just making an educated assumption. And maybe I'm wrong... But when you look at a loft... and it is above a trendy bar... wouldn't you...ummmm...assume that there might be noise late at night? So why are you all complaining… Full Review ▶


I leased my home and relocated downtown to experience urban living. As I have 3 additional rental properties throughout the metroplex so I understand landlord/tenant relations. Living in DP&L has been a complete nightmare. The building has great architectural appeal but… Full Review ▶


I could write a book on how poor and unethical the Management staff at DP&L is but I'll keep it to the point. I lived at this place for a year and have nothing but regrets. I could tolerate the noise… Full Review ▶


If you ever went to college and had a roommate or suitemate who partied all night and had total disregard for your request for a little quiet while you were studying, you know what it's like to live in DP&L.

Anyone who… Full Review ▶


I lived in a nearby loft downtown when the DP&L lofts were being renovated, and I was so attracted to the beauty of the finish out. Since the move in, however, the office staff has continually changed, lost interest in keeping… Full Review ▶


This place is one giant facade. When you first look at DP&L it seems great, but after you live here for a while you learn a different story. The people that showed me the apartment are no longer the managers here… Full Review ▶


What are the chances the last comment was made by a Dallas Power and Light employee?

Not a good place to live if there is a chance that even one person had a bad experience...chances are that it could happen again! Full Review ▶


My aprtment at DP&L was great. All the countertops were granite, the appliances were all new, and the bathroom had great little features. That being said, there is one major drawback to living here, Fuse. When I toured the apartment, I… Full Review ▶


Yes, I know I have moved in to a loft surrounding a nightclub. I just didn't realize it would be SO loud until after 2 am MOST nights, even weekdays.

And so when you finally get to sleep by 2:30 or… Full Review ▶


I've looked all over downtown and have discovered that DPL offers the most floor space and the nicest walls, counters, and fixtures within the apartments for the money.

That said, the elevators are often completely out of order and usually have… Full Review ▶


DP&L lofts are beautiful!! The staff is amazing!!! I have lived in many apartments in my time and I can tell you that we as residents have it made. Some of you think that because we have money that people are… Full Review ▶


I have to say that out of everywhere that I have lived so far I just recently moved here to DP&L and it has been the most impressive move of my life. I can honestly say that I've never been taken… Full Review ▶


Ok first of all i was reading what was recently written about my home and people listen up this place is fantastic! I think the office staff we have now is great they actually seem to care about what we need.… Full Review ▶


I have lived at DP&L for 6 months and I can't wait to get out. The management I assume, is like most other property managers. They tell you exactly what you want to hear....then don't do a damn thing. I could… Full Review ▶


This is a great building, unfortunately, management ruined the experience for me. Asking for help with anything is like talking to a rock. The management is uneducated and poorly trained, if trained at all. They are 35 thousand dollar millionaires and… Full Review ▶


If there is ever a question as to what true customer service is, just visit DP & L. Not only is there customer service excellent when shopping for an apartment, it stays that way after you move in. Dorthy is one… Full Review ▶


ok so i moved here from the Southside Lofts and as beautiful as they were i really don't think that anyone here in Dallas can compare to DP&L this place ROCKS! the bar downstairs "Fuse" is so awesome and the views… Full Review ▶


I just love it here! I have never encountered such an awesome office staff in my 15 years of renting. Dorthy & Dovie are just a delight to work with and very accomodating. I have never seen a apartment staff so… Full Review ▶


I have to say that I am about to be a new resident in this building and Ms. Dorothy the buildings Manager has shown me nothing but pure kindness which is more than i can say for any other properties i've… Full Review ▶
