Downtown Dallas Neighborhood – Continued

For several decades downtown Dallas was quietly being abandoned. The only bright spot in the 1970s was Ray Hunt building Reunion Tower. In the 1980s, spectacular office buildings were being erected but downtown residences and retail were nearly non-existent. The hopes, plans, and vision for downtown Dallas is coming to fruition in the 21st century. Now residential modern highrises line the skyscape and modern performance halls and museums anchor the Arts District, benefiting the 5,000 residents living downtown.

Downtown Dallas has once again emerged as a prestigious destination point. There is nothing chimerical about downtown Dallas becoming a vibrant city center. Over the next decade projects will be finished that will transform Dallas beyond our imagination.
