Living Amid Dallas’ Urban Delights

The Ritz Carlton Penthouse
Enjoy Dallas Urban Living in Luxury Penthouses, Lofts, High-Rises, and More.

For much of the last half century, the housing trend saw homeowners move to the suburbs. Cars made daily commutes to work easier. Land was less expensive. Houses and lots were larger. Schools were newer. Shopping in malls became the norm. Then young people and urban pioneers began to re-discover that living downtown could be exciting and fun.

Today, their parents are following in their children’s footsteps. Mature homeowners are moving to urban centers and neighborhoods near downtowns, buying residences in high-rise and not-so-high-rise condominiums. Having grown weary of maintaining the big house and yard, these older buyers are  looking for a lock-and-leave environment where they can enjoy the arts provided by urban centers or fly off to see family or favorite locals.

The Dallas Arts District and now the new Klyde Warren Park over the Woodall-Rodgers Freeway have attracted numerous developers who have built luxury residences with spectacular views of the downtown skyline. The new residential buildings from Victory Plaza to Uptown to downtown offer homeowners an exciting, city lifestyle.
