Las Colinas is probably your best bet if you're working near DFW. I used to live in downtown Las Colinas, and there are some nice lofts and apartments out there. Very centrally located, safe area, shopping and restaurants nearby, plus some quiet/nice neighborhoods close by, too, if you'll be looking for houses.
