AT A GLANCE
WELCOME TO UPTOWN
Originally cleared for office development in the eighties, this swath directly north of downtown has instead blossomed into a dense, pedestrian-friendly, and thoroughly urban residential neighborhood that thrives on a live-work-play mentality.
A lively nucleus of trendy restaurants, spirited nightlife, and some prime people-watching.
Shorter commutes, late-night revelry, and leisurely Sunday brunches.

AROUND THE BLOCK
UPTOWN:High-quality city living in one action-packed square mile.
The mixed-use developments that have popped up in Uptown equate to more than 200 restaurants, 160 shops, and a profusion of glossy apartments for prospective residents to choose from. Also worth mentioning: the 58 acres of green space.
WHAT TO EXPECT:A lively nucleus of trendy restaurants, spirited nightlife, and some prime people-watching.
Whether you’re browsing the shops in West Village (Uptown’s unofficial downtown), taking your pup for a walk in nearby Klyde Warren Park, or perusing the menu at Fearing’s, you’re bound to soak up the electric energy of Uptown’s young professional set. Several luxury hotels, including the Crescent Court and the Ritz-Carlton, also make this a prime location for out-of-towners.
THE LIFESTYLE:Shorter commutes, late-night revelry, and leisurely Sunday brunches.
For those Uptown residents who work in or near downtown, less time getting to and from the office translates to more time jogging or cycling along Katy Trail, browsing an eclectic assortment of shops, and meeting friends out for drinks along McKinney Avenue.
UNEXPECTED APPEAL:The Victorian-era homes in the State Thomas historic district.
Though construction cranes are the norm in still-booming Uptown, there are quieter pockets like the tree-lined State Thomas area, where newer townhomes mingle with a bevy of restored Victorians, the largest collection of such architecture in Dallas.
THE MARKET:Where modern mixed-use developments mingle with historic Victorian homes.
Upscale mid-rise apartments populate Uptown’s well-trafficked intersections, but look for the one- and two-story frame houses, many painted in sunny shades, in the neighborhood’s eastern pockets.
YOU’LL FALL IN LOVE WITH:The conveniences built into Uptown’s design.
From its inception, Uptown’s aim has been to offer a compact, less car-dependent lifestyle to its residents, who’d rather not drive across town for work or play. It’s no coincidence that Uptown’s logo is a vintage streetcar: you can hop on the McKinney Avenue Trolley for free 365 days a year.
