It’s a safe bet that with inventory limited to a handful of residences in oh-so-happening So7, unit No. 3403 at 2608 Museum Way probably won’t last long on the market. The fourth-floor unit has 1,732 square feet over a loft-like two stories, with two bedrooms and bathrooms. It’s listed with Karly Johnston of Burt Ladner Real Estate for $329,000.

Once inside the unit, see the kitchen to the left, replete with the requisite sleek stainless appliances, carefully conceived cabinets, and slick granite surfaces. A compact dining area leads to a double-height living area, where 20-foot windows at the east end fill the unit with light.

The bookcases, an addition from the current owner, only go up one floor, which gives the room a more human scale. A door in the right run of windows leads to a balcony with cityscape views. 

Completing the first floor is a bedroom suite with full bath. The powder room is a lovely combination of mod wallpaper and tasteful paint colors, meaning you wouldn't have to lift a decorating finger.

Wide stairs lead to the master sleeping loft. The balcony overlooks the living area, which has been thoughtfully semi-separated by louvered shutters. The generous master bath comes as a bit of a surprise for a condominium of this size. Generous double storage, a packing table, jewelry drawers, and shoe racks could accommodate almost any serious clotheshorse.

So7 refers to the seven-block, multiuse urban development south of West 7th Street. The $200 million venture was the result of a partnership between Dallas’ Cypress Equities and the Carlyle Group. Begun only 10 years ago, the project sailed through the then-challenging economic downturn and officially opened in 2010.

Mature trees and shrubs soften the modern façade of the five-floor condominium building, and Museum Way is unexpectedly quiet, because the area is in a designated quiet zone, and trains are prohibited from sounding their whistles.

The urban landscape will only grow more alluring over time, with the Trinity Vision River/Panther Island project set for completion in four or five years.
