With plenty of new developments in the works and a close proximity to both downtown Dallas and Uptown Dallas, the Design District seems to be in the middle of a complete transformation. Once nothing more than a collection of warehouses and industry, this up-and-coming part of Dallas is now becoming a hotbed for trendy new restaurants, cheap real estate, and a gateway into some of the more established and expensive neighborhoods that many home buyers and rents like, but might not necessity be able to afford.
From art galleries and upscale furniture stores to charming boutiques, cafes, and restaurants, the Design District in many ways is on its way to offering everything you could want in a big city location. Although there’s still a long way to go in terms of being completely people-friendly and having more of a residential vibe, projects like The Strand and District 1444 are just two small steps in changing that.
Aside from just its close proximity to downtown, the other key element the Design District has in its favor over many other nearby neighborhoods is that it sits right alongside Trinity River Greenbelt Park, which features plenty of open green space and even a network of walking trails and biking paths—an outdoor amenity that’s becoming more and more popular to anybody looking to live in the city.
So while neighborhoods like Uptown Dallas and West End may get a lot of headlines, and rightfully so, keep an eye on the Dallas Design District if you’re a savvy home buyer who might be looking to buy low and sell high down the road.
