"The perfect choice for Richland College students"

The Chimney Hill neighborhood of northeast Dallas is just west of Richland College, one of the Dallas County Community Colleges. There are several housing options here for families, students, and professionals in an area that is close to some of Dallas's best amenities. This is also a neighborhood that has been in decline for some time as low-cost apartments in the area have led to a higher crime rate for the area as a whole.

The area is served by the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system, which makes getting to almost any part of the city fast and easy. Chimney Hill is just right around the corner from the Greenville Avenue entertainment district, one of Dallas' best for a variety of fine dining options and some of the hottest nightlife in the city. It's also a short drive or DART bus trip to White Rock Lake, the Dallas Arboretum, and Downtown Dallas. Chimney Hill is home for a mix of ethnic groups and races so you're sure to learn something new about the world living here.

Chimney Hill is a good choice for a Richland College student, a professional making a commute to other parts of the city, or anyone looking for affordable rental properties or a home.
Pros
  • close to Downtown Dallas

Cons
  • heavy traffic on adjacent roads during rush hour
  • rising crime rates over the past two decades
