Over 20 years ago, Uptown was one of the first public improvement districts formed in Dallas. As a result, a decaying area of the city was transformed into Dallas’ first live-work-play destination. The efforts within the improvement district resulted in Uptown becoming one of the most sought-after locations in the city. If you’re looking for a vibrant community that offers everything you could ask for in terms of homes, shopping, dining and entertainment, the Uptown area might be for you.
Uptown is hopping with new construction, condos, apartments, students, professionals, nightlife, and galleries. Popular areas include West Village, State and Allen, and the McKinney Avenue Corridor. It is common to see the McKinney Avenue trolley, restaurant lines, tourists, and business travelers in Uptown as it hosts some of the best Hotels in Dallas such as the Ritz Carlton, the Crescent Hotel, and the boutique Hotel ZaZa. Uptown is conveniently located north of downtown and between major freeways.
