Vibrant, contemporary and pulsing with energy and activity, Uptown is a mecca for those seeking a truly urban lifestyle. Within walking distance from some of Dallas' most popular shopping, dining, and entertainment venues, this neighborhood brings the real estate term "convenience" to a new level.
Connecting Uptown to tree-lined Turtle Creek and family friendly Highland Park is McKinney Avenue, which plays host to several popular restaurants, retail stores, and nightlife hotspots. With a home in the Uptown area, residents find they have the best parking spot in town. Easy access to the McKinney Avenue Trolley means residents can leave the car behind and conquer weekend errands from the open-air seat of an historic streetcar.
Uptown features new apartment complexes, high-rise residences, and condominium communities as well as single family homes with modern architecture. All are within easy reach of the popular Katy Trail, a 3.5-mile scenic, tree-canopied running, walking, and biking path that leads right to master-planned commercial district, Victory Park, and popular concert and sports venue, the American Airlines Center.
The Uptown area is a top pick for working professionals and urban fans who crave the walk-ability that living near the heart of the city affords. With quick access to Klyde Warren Park, residents can easily walk or bike to work in Dallas’ central business district or catch an exhibit or performance in the renowned Arts District. Traditional public transportation is available via the DART Cityplace/Uptown Station. Between the two, many residents find that they rarely need to use their vehicles.
Dallas Independent School District educates students who live in the Uptown area, with the highly rated William B. Travis Academy/Vanguard for the Academically Talented and Gifted . Several nearby private schools include St. Mark’s School of Dallas, The Hockaday School, Episcopal School of Dallas, and Ursuline Academy among others.
