East of downtown Dallas sits Deep Ellum, a culturally rich neighborhood with a heritage that can’t be mistaken.
Deep Ellum was once home to one of the first automobile assembly plants for the famed Model T. Long since gone, the old Ford assembly plant was turned into loft apartments in 1997 kicking off a revitalization effort the would honor the neighborhood’s past.
What many people don’t know is that Deep Ellum holds the largest collection of commercial storefronts from the early 1900’s. These storefronts are now home to restaurants, dive bars, and entertainment venues as well as an eclectic collection of boutique shops.
Historians will love many of the architectural buildings, factories, and warehouses that were designed by some of the most influential African-American architects of their time.
Deep Ellum also has deep musical roots in Jazz and Blues. On any given night you’ll find live entertainment paying tribute to the neighborhoods early days. It’s this entertainment and dive bar setting that attracts thousands to the area on weekends. You’ll also find hundreds of new luxury apartments in Deep Ellum ranging from new construction to conversions of older buildings. All of which are within walking distance to the DART and the Dallas Farmers Market.
Deep Ellum has become quite popular over the last several years and many are choosing to live in the neighborhood for its rich heritage and close proximity to Downtown Dallas. Many top companies including Uber are relocating to Deep Ellum. It’s also just a $5 Lyft to McKinney Ave. should you feel the need to mix it up a bit.
