Oak Lawn & Uptown
Revitalized and booming, Dallas’ Downtown, Uptown and McKinney Avenue corridor is a long-time hot spot - reborn.
Downtown Dallas with its contemporary way of life, numerous lofts and creatively designed condominiums appeals to any urban palate. Both young and seasoned professionals enjoy the close proximity to their offices and abundant night life. With the active Downtown Dallas Arts District and the new Klyde Warren Park seamlessly connecting downtown to uptown, the community is more vibrant than ever. The Klyde Warren Park is a five acre, public, tree-lined green space deck over the existing Woodall Rodgers Freeway. It hosts many venues and has brought new excitement to the center of Dallas.
Uptown, Dallas’ hottest office and residential area is directly north of downtown and encompasses the McKinney Avenue corridor. Here you will discover the finest array of dining in the city, with offices, boutiques and salons creating an electric atmosphere, day and night.
A few short strolls from the bustling activity on McKinney Avenue there are lovely historic residential neighborhoods alongside the finest examples of contemporary living. Many of the new developments were designed to resemble the brownstones of Boston and the elegance of Park Avenue. Luxury high rises, sleek condominiums, gated communities are just a few reasons this is Dallas’ urban living at its best.
Most of all the fine dining and vibrant nightlife in Dallas is within walking distance in the Uptown area. And if you choose to ride, a free run on a vintage trolley car is a delight. The McKinney Avenue Transit Authority connects downtown to uptown, running from the Arts District and stopping at various hot spots along McKinney Avenue. The area is also home to traditional plays, experimental theater, movies and music. The nearby Arts District is home to nationally acclaimed museums and The Dallas Symphony.
Residents have many naturally beautiful areas to enjoy that are unique to this area. The paved and popular Katy Trail, Reverchon Park and Turtle Creek are just a few of the urban landscapes to enjoy.
