Discover your inner artist in the Dallas Design District where showrooms, galleries, and creatives gather for a uniquely fashionable, yet urban lifestyle.
Industrial · Chic · Buzzy · Contemporary
The Design District is one of Dallas’ most-loved gems. This industrial-chic neighborhood sits just two miles northwest of Downtown and offers residents an array of artful living. Fine dining, antique shops, and art galleries, plus high-end interior design showrooms fill the landscape. Dallas Market Center, lauded as the most complete wholesale marketplace in the world, calls the Design District home.
It welcomes more than 400,000 visitors from around the world every year. In the Design District, you will pick from over 365 retail and dining options, from the weirdly eclectic, to the upscale and high-end. Luxurious apartment homes offer residents a posh lifestyle at the center of it all. Easy highway access and a prime position close to Downtown make the Design District a fantastic place to live.
A cool and collected vibe permeates the streets as the Design District continues to grow, attracting industrious shop owners, interior designers, creatives, and entrepreneurs alike. Tree lined streets, hip art installations, and access to premier shopping and dining put this neighborhood on the map. Think refined, yet eclectic, a stark contrast to the glitz and glam of the Park Cities.
