Downtown Dallas isn’t what it used to be. That’s a very good thing. Ten years ago, there were few restaurants open after 3 pm, and there were even fewer green spaces. But the population has risen from 200 residents in the Central Business District — which includes everything within the freeway loop — to more than 8,000. Occupancy rates are holding steady at 94 percent. There’s retail, pharmacies, parks, and a grocery store. And there are housing options aplenty. Here are a few of our favorites.
