A new apartment community opening soon in Uptown knows what keeps us running day to day: Amazon. Carlisle & Vine, located at — you guessed it — the intersection of Carlisle and Vine streets near the Katy Trail, has teamed up with Amazon to make living there even better and easier.

It’s the first multifamily community in Dallas to offer all these amenities, and the result is a smart home that’s truly impressive. At Carlisle & Vine, everything is #easierwithamazon.

Here are five things to know about these new residences, which are slated to open in October:

1. Amazon benefits
Move into Carlisle & Vine and they’ll include some pretty sweet deals: one year of Amazon Prime with the best of shopping and entertainment from Amazon, plus the convenience of Whole Foods delivery through Prime Now, Amazon’s one- and two-hour delivery service. You’ll also get to take advantage of the Hub by Amazon, which allows for 24/7 package pickup right in the building (and the Hub lets you know when those packages have arrived).

2. “Alexa, turn on the lights”
Carlisle & Vine is rocking the latest and greatest in electronics. Enjoy things like keyless Bluetooth entry, LED lighting, and smart thermostats, plus Leviton Smart Switches in all living areas and Sonos speakers in select units. Residents also receive an Amazon Echo to help control their smart home simply by using their voice. Not sure how to set all that up? You can schedule a free one-on-one lesson with the community’s Amazon smart home expert, who will explain and install key components so that you can truly live smart and easy.

3. Must-have materials
The 150 condo-style units boast some great design features, from 10-foot-high ceilings to composite wood flooring. All homes come with stainless steel GE Profile series appliances (including washers and dryers), plus granite countertops, Kohler sink fixtures and hardware, contemporary wood cabinetry, and under-cabinet lighting. You’ll find backlit mirrors in the bathrooms, and some units even include custom elfa closets, dry bars and wine coolers, and entryway storage organizers.

4. All the best amenities
Of course Carlisle & Vine has a pool and fitness center, but neither would be described as standard. The sparkling, sixth-floor pool has an integrated wet deck and is surrounded by a fire pit and a variety of lounge and grill areas. The club room is on the same level, and offers fantastic views of both Uptown and downtown, along with elegant furnishings, TVs, and a bar for entertaining. A bocce ball court and more shaded seating can be found on the ground level. The ultra-modern fitness center makes working out smarter with the latest in high-tech, connectable fitness equipment. Simply use the Alexan Life skill for Amazon Alexa through your Amazon Echo to reserve amenity spaces or put in maintenance requests.

5. Even pups get pampered
Show Scruffy some love with the onsite pet park, which also has a lounge and bath spa to make keeping fluffy paws clean even easier.
