Where to Live

This is a neighborhood that is rapidly establishing itself as a hip location. With the announcement of the spectacular new American Airlines Center on the district's southeast corner, a large number of new condominiums and townhomes have been constructed. At the same time, more projects have been announced in the northern and western areas of the neighborhood. As the older warehouse and showrooms are either converted or replaced, there are a growing number of lofts and eclectic housing choices. It's possible to move into a very modern complex near Victory Park or to select a condo in the western areas of the district.

Where to Eat

The location of the Design District made it popular with the trade because it was so close to everything great about Dallas. These same attributes are one reason the area is now so desirable. This means residents can dine in the finest restaurants in Dallas or easily access the vibrant northern communities or be in Fort Worth's Sundance Square in less than an hour. The atmosphere in the Design District itself has attracted some of the trendiest bars, bistros, and dining spots. Residents can sample late-night tacos from a happening food truck, enjoy some sushi in a quaint little booth, or try out the latest fusion menu in one of the many new restaurants.

What You'll See

If you live in the Design District, your world is going to change based on the time of day. Dallas is all about business and the residents of the area will leave early and return late, leaving the area relatively quiet during the day. However, the night starts early, and there is always a weekend crowd in the Victory Park area. The biggest entertainers and events come to the American Airlines Center and they bring in a large number of visitors on a regular basis. This activity has resulted in more than 400 shops, boutiques, meeting areas, bars throughout the neighborhood, and it seems new ones are always moving in.

Friday Night Fun

Every Friday night is alive and cooking in the Design District, especially in the southeastern area. This is especially the case when big names come into town to perform. Every holiday is celebrated in the Victory Park area and Fridays are often the kickoff for weekend fun runs, art shows, and festivals.

The Perfect Sunday

If you dream of a "New York Sunday," you might find yourself with a great replacement in the Design District. Many of the bistros and restaurants have a Sunday brunch and there are plenty of parks and cafes to enjoy a coffee and paper. Sundays are quiet with little traffic and it's easy to think you are in one of the largest metropolises in the world.
