I may be slow to the party but I had no idea that Amarillo had luxury apartments. I ran across this the other day so of course, I was interested. It didn't surprise me that they were located in Downtown Amarillo.

Over the years that area has really changed. I would have never even considered living in that area. Nowadays, well maybe. Until I saw how much it would cost. That was not going to happen.

I knew that Downtown Amarillo had The Firestone. I had heard about the Residence at 600 I just never looked into them. Until I saw a post on Facebook that said they only had five apartments left to rent. So I was curious.

If you don't know about these apartments they are luxury apartments in Amarillo. OK? I didn't know that was a thing but I guess so. They are located in the Firstbank Southwest Building. You know the one that houses the Amarillo Club as well.

I guess it really was the prices that threw me for a loop. I will say that the apartments do look nice. They even have an area for you to take your dogs for a potty break without leaving the building. That is nice. Still the price though.

Who Can Afford This?

Looking at their website they have a total of fourteen apartments. All but five are rented out. If you are looking for a one-bedroom, one-bath, you are out of luck. Those are all leased.

But hey if you need a two-bedroom you are in luck. Just like every other apartment, you will just have to have the funds, which includes a $2000 deposit. Let's talk rent for these.

Life is good if you can afford the $2975 per month. Even if you have a roommate you are still looking at just under $1500 a month. That is for a 1600-square-foot apartment. Wow. There is even one apartment available for $3225 per month.

I get it I am in radio. This is way too rich for my blood. I just couldn't imagine spending $35,000 a year on rent. Kudos to those that can afford this. Since there are seven apartments already rented out there are people in Amarillo that can afford this.

Are any of you single?
