Why It’s Time to Move to the Dallas Design District!

When our clients ask us about central neighborhoods, the Dallas Design District isn’t always on their radar. This hidden gem of a neighborhood has taken a back seat to nearby Uptown, Downtown, and Oak Lawn, despite having its own attractions. What started as a warehouse area for local and nationally-recognized designers has developed into a strong community that reflects a deep appreciation for art and style. Design District apartments offer a balance of affordability and attention to detail that keeps them a strong competitor for apartments in nearby areas.

Not convinced? Here are a few reasons why leasing a Design District apartment might be a good fit for you:

Some of the best downtown views can be seen from Design District apartments. Whether you’re looking for a backdrop for your midrise patio or a stunning talking point for your luxury highrise, you’ll find it over here. Many of the properties have observation/sky decks you can enjoy at any time of the day that offer really sick views of downtown!

Most Design District apartments have been built since 2007 and feature the same range of modern features that you’ll find in newer communities. Whether you’re looking for stainless steel appliances, wood floors, granite counter tops, or spacious floor plans, this neighborhood has them.

Top-rated bars and restaurants are in walking distance from many Design District properties. Score a cup of handcrafted joe at Ascension Coffee, who also features regular live music sessions, or take on another level of beer culture at the Meddlesome Moth, a gastropub that prides themselves on having the best selection in the city.

Community Beer Company takes up residence in the Design District, too. You can tour their brewery, catch art and music shows, or even rent the taproom for private events. There are also 2 other local breweries in the Design District that you need to try ASAP: Noble Rey Brewery and Texas Ale Project. Who doesn’t want to be walking distance to a variety of delicious and local beers?!

If you’re pining for your own Katy Trail, keep in mind that the Trinity River trail is completed and connects all the way over to Katy Trail! Plus, it has some insane views of the Dallas skyline from the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. Hello, selfies!

You didn’t think we’d forget to mention the heart of the area, did you? The Design District is still a haven for show rooms. Check out Jones Walker for chic, custom furnishings, or The Wooden House for vintage and re-purposed finds from around the world. Plus, there are a ton of small vintage shops that you can score some awesome pieces at for your place!
