Uptown

At A Glance

Over the last 20 years, the booming Uptown corridor has returned to its hot-spot roots. The bustling McKinney Avenue anchors the area containing a mix of high-end apartments and townhomes next to historic residential neighborhoods. Many of the newer developments, some designed to resemble Boston brownstones and New York City’s Park Avenue, represent Dallas urban living at its best. In addition to being the epicenter of Dallas nightlife, Uptown is also home to some of the city’s best arts and cultural venues. Thanks to smart urban planning, the revitalized McKinney Avenue Trolley and mixed-use developments, Uptown is one of the most pedestrian-friendly areas in Texas and draws in residents looking for a live-work-play neighborhood.
