The continued development of Downtown, Uptown and Deep Ellum over the past 5 years, has created several thriving pedestrian friendly neighborhoods. Dallasites can now live in lofts and apartments within walking distance to bars, restaurants, green spaces and dog parks. And because all of these areas are close to one another, a quick trolley or cab ride makes the entire area accessible without driving.

Residents of the lofts in Deep Ellum have Adair’s, Twisted Root Burgers, AllGood Cafe among many other popular restaurants. Local artist galleries are mixed with live music venues and bars. For pet owners, a huge city operated dog park sits on the west end of Deep Ellum.

The trendy Uptown neighborhood is home to dozens of apartment communities, featuring everything from garden style to mid-rise to prestigious high rise communities. Rents in this area are among some of the highest in Dallas, but residents love the ability to either walk or hop on the McKinney Avenue Trolley (MATA) to visit restaurants, shops and bars throughout the area.

The Downtown residential market has gone from a couple hundred brave souls ten years ago to becoming a vital, thriving area. The Main Street District in the heart of downtown is home to several high rise apartment and loft communities. Residents can walk to Main Street Gardens, Urban Market Grocery and Deli or get their shopping fix at Neiman’s.

The Dallas Arts District is 68 acres, the largest of its kind in the country. In addition to newly constructed condominiums for sale a brand new apartment community has just opened. Residents of these communities can walk to a variety of restaurants including Screen Door, Dali, Tei An, Jorge’s and Fedora.
