"Modern urban living in the heart of Dallas, Texas"

The Convention Center district of Downtown Dallas is an urban center that has sprung to life with upscale apartments and condominiums in the past two decades. Housing with a view of Downtown Dallas comes at a price though, as rent in this area can go well over $2,000 a month for 2,000 square feet of living space.

This is one of the few areas in Dallas where you can live and work without the use of a car. Dallas Area Rapid Transit serves the area with rail and bus lines making it easy to commute to almost any part of the city. There are a growing number of nightclubs and dining options in the area. There are the usual fast food eateries and Starbucks is in the area, which is a great place to sip an espresso while using their Wi-Fi to check your email. Just to the north is the West End entertainment district, one of the best areas in all of Dallas for dining and eclectic nightlife. The Lower Greenville Avenue entertainment district is only a few minutes away by car or DART rail or bus line.

The Convention Center district is the place to be for young, urban professionals and anyone who yearns to live in the heart of the city.
