The last 15 years have seen massive construction projects transform this area into a dense, mixed-use, pedestrian-friendly place to live and work.
Just north of downtown Dallas, Uptown is popular with young professionals who want a walkable neighborhood with plenty of action. Although it is one of Dallas’ earliest settlements, redevelopment has fostered a lively mix of new and old. The Historic State Thomas neighborhood includes wood-frame houses restored to their early-20th-century grandeur. New high-rise residences offer ownership and rental opportunities and typically include fitness centers and shopping. The area is also home to hundreds of fine dining and nightlife venues, as well as galleries, boutiques, and an art house movie theater.
