South Side On Lamar

1409 S. Lamar St.
Dallas, TX 75215
Best Of
It’s entirely possible to live at South Side on Lamar and never leave your building. Besides 450 loft apartments with original maple floors and exposed brick, each with a unique floor plan, the complex also boasts a concierge, a rooftop pool, an art gallery, a business center, dry cleaner, a liquor store, a movie theater, a conference room, a fitness center, and beverage options, whether it’s booze (Absinthe Lounge) or caffeine (Opening Bell Coffee) you crave. A massive event space plays host to everything from flea markets to fashion shows. Those willing to step outside the front door will find a dog park, not to mention the Palladium Ballroom, Bill’s Records and retro-chic cocktail-centric restaurant The Cedars Social within very short walking distance. The brick complex has stood on the south side of downtown for more than 100 years and was originally the Sears Building, though it has seen its fair share of expansion over the years to ultimately become the massive compound it is today.
