Welcome to Uptown
Vibrant, energetic enclave with everything you need to work, live, and play
Just above Downtown Dallas is the trendy urban community of Uptown. It’s known for its vibrant nightlife, strong job market and collection of high-paying jobs, and walkable streets. Everything its young, active residents need is close at hand, making it easy to have everything they want before, during, and after work.
This highly walkable neighborhood full of mixed-use developments and urban amenities was developed in the early 2000s. When it was rebranded as Uptown, many of the developments were created with the New Urbanist movement in mind. These changes have made Uptown the most pedestrian-friendly neighborhood in all of Texas.
Luxurious townhomes and upscale apartments are the hot real estate Uptown. Make all of Uptown your backyard when you live within walking distance of upscale, all-you-need amenities.
