the city of Dallas in 1945.

lots and a mix of homes that range from
ranch-style homes to mansions.
THE WEST END HISTORIC
The West End Historic District is part
and parcel of the original city of
Dallas. Downtown Dallas eventually
moved east, giving the West End its
name. The West End then became an
industrial factory and warehouse dis-
trict, only to be reborn later into a 20-
block area of more than 100 specialty
shops, restaurants and nightclubs in
restored, century-old buildings.
Just southwest of downtown, the West
End is bound by Market Street, Pacific
Avenue and Woodall Rogers Freeway,
and a short walk from Dealey Plaza and
the Old Red Courthouse. Urged on by the
growing demand for urban living, developers have converted red brick warehouses into beautiful lofts and condominiums.
Examples of building projects that have
recently been repurposed are the historic
six-story Purse Building, the Interurban
Building and the upscale urban Market
Grocery and eatery.
Uptown is a thriving neighborhood popular amongst the Gen Y and Gen Xers.
New developments for urban living and
the development of thriving retail stores

runs from downtown along Highway 75
up to Highland Park. Hotel ZaZa, the
Crescent, the Ritz-Carlton and lots of
trendy places “to see and be seen”
populate the area.

Village shopping/retail/residential development and features high-rise living along
McKinney with units for sale and for

architecture with modern interiors.
