A Houston developer will pour more than $15 million into a facelift for a 21-story Uptown Dallas apartment high-rise.

Vero Sade unveiled its work on 3700M, a 381-unit luxury property at 3700 McKinney Ave. on Wednesday. The work centers around the complex’ seventh floor — a 6,700-square-foot amenity level that features a rooftop pool with cabanas and summer kitchens, an all-day café, a yoga studio, a 24/7 fitness center, and an outdoor terrace for fitness programming.

The building’s lobby was turned into a two-story, 6,000-square-foot multipurpose space geared to residents and the general public as part of the work. The venue serves as an event space as well as a coworking space with private offices for rent.

The tower’s apartments are also being revamped, and that work continues.

Vero Sade is offering studio, one- and two-bedroom homes spanning 562 to 1,475 square feet. The open-concept living spaces feature oak flooring and floor-to-ceiling windows throughout. In the kitchens, you’ll find built-in pantries, light wood cabinetry, quartz countertops and upgraded stainless steel appliances.

Other features include spa-like baths and walk-in closets. Select units offer balconies or patios. Roughly 10 of the property’s one-bedroom apartments have set aside for short-term renters — those looking for a place to stay for at least one week.

Vero Sade has completed work on 91 units thus far, and the plan is to renovate all apartments. Studios start at $2,200 and two-bedrooms with unobstructed, skyline views of Dallas start at $4,000, a company representative told The Dallas Morning News.

3700M is pet-friendly with a newly unveiled dog run, and the high-rise also features EV charging stations. The property was originally built in 2014.

The project redesign was led by Good City Studio, a Philadelphia-based design shop whose work includes a mix of high-profile multifamily properties, private clubs and hotels.

“Vero Sade’s club living concept is designed to reimagine traditional multifamily life through elevated, thoughtful design and purposeful programming – elements intended to encourage interactions, relationship building, and ultimately, community among its resident members,” Dan Bassichis, co-founder of Vero Sade, said in a statement. “A key residential anchor of its walkable, mixed-use Uptown Dallas environs, the new 3700M will be attractive to renters by choice and those who value location, luxury and connection to their neighbors.”
