In the mid-1990s, 200 people lived downtown. Now, 7,500 call the Central Business District home. And more are on their way. For decades, the Manor House stood alone as the only high-rise residential offering in downtown. Then came 1900 Elm and the Kirby Building in the 1990s, followed by the Davis Building, SoCo Urban Lofts, the DP&L Flats, the Metropolitan, 1505 Elm, the Mosaic, and One Arts Plaza.
“Downtown” is actually made up of 15 districts, including Main Street, Victory Park, the Arts District, South Side, and Deep Ellum,” says John F. Crawford, president and CEO of Downtown Dallas Inc. “If you look at what downtown was 10 years ago versus what it is today, there have been enormous gains. It’s downtown’s time.”
