"Modern urban living in the shadow of Downtown Dallas"

The Cedars neighborhood of Dallas is a study of contrasts. There are some older run-down single family homes that have been neglected and they stand in the shadow of newly renovated warehouse lofts and high-end condominiums that are home to artists, musicians, and young, urban professionals. Many older abandoned buildings in the area have been converted to luxury lofts as interest in urban living in Dallas has grown over the past decade. Look for this trend to continue and for prices to climb as urban living becomes more popular.

This is one of the few places in Dallas where you can live comfortably without a car as it's served by Dallas Area Rapid Transit system rail and bus lines. Nightlife is also coming to this area for the first time in decades and there are also several great dining options as well. The Brooklyn Jazz Cafe is a great live music venue and the Spotlight Club on South Boulevard has a wide variety of musical styles live on the weekends.

The Cedars neighborhood of Downtown Dallas is one of the most unique parts of the city with most eclectic mix of people from all walks of life. This is the place to be if you're young, single, and enjoy urban living.
