Main Street District Real Estate
The Main Street District is one of the smallest urban districts in all of Dallas and is certainly the most narrow by being only as wide as two city blocks. Even so, Main Street has a long and storied history in Dallas and the district at one time was the center of the city's commerce which has mostly moved to the City Center District. When this move took place the historical and uniquely beautiful buildings of the Main Street District became unused and run down. When the city started to undergo an urban revival the Main Street District was the first to take on a new usefulness.
Even though most of the older buildings of the Main Street District were too small for modern technology and office spaces the district found its usefulness in being a great place for small store fronts, great basement level bars, and a plethora of unique and intimate dining establishments. The Pegasus Plaza has become a gathering place for visitors and residents to meet up before their night on the town, enjoying the historic offerings of the Main Street District. While many of the older buildings have been restored and reused, there are still some waiting their turn, making great places for businesses to come in and set up a store front.
The Main Street District of Dallas, much like many of the older districts in the area has taken on a new personality in the same older buildings that have found a brand new usefulness. This gives visitors of the Main Street District the opportunity to enjoy the history in place including the firs skyscraper of Dallas and enjoy the great nightlife of the basement bars along with the many small stores and restaurants that take advantage of the older buildings to add to the great charm of the area.
