A little about The Design District

The Dallas Design District is comprised of interior design showrooms, art galleries, restaurants, trendy apartments and a vibrant live-work-play community.

The history of The Design District

The area began as a warehouse district in the years following World War Two. A former floodplain, the existence of the Design District was made possible by the city’s construction of several levees and the diversion of the Trinity River away from downtown. When the federal government completed I-35, Trammell Crow, a well-known Dallas-based real estate developer, began construction on several warehouses and industrial buildings in the area and for many years, an industrial area is what the Design District remained. In the mid 1980’s the area began its gradual metamorphosis as high-end design and furnishings businesses began moving into the area, converting the existing warehouse spaces into showrooms catering to the design trade.
