Downtown Dallas has experienced a significant residential boom in recent years. Since the 1990s more than 10,000 apartments and condominiums have been constructed in the heart of downtown. Based on continued demand and a strong local economy, construction of an additional 2,000 units is underway or has been announced. Many of the homes are in new buildings with the latest amenities; some are in salvaged warehouses and factories with high ceilings and large windows featuring picturesque views. Residents of downtown Dallas enjoy proximity to world-class arts and entertainment venues, frequent sporting events, fine dining and shopping.
