“The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.”
The Design District sits in the Stemmons Corridor just southwest of Oak Lawn, with internationally significant Dallas Market Center to the north. The rough-around-the-edges area has been gentrifying around the 8-acre Decorative Center Dallas complex, transforming a relatively unknown neighborhood into an up-and-coming destination for restaurants and entertainment. The Trinity River Project extends from Oak Cliff into the Design District, creating numerous trails and green spaces along the river for inner city recreation and relaxation. You can't miss the striking silhouette of Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge designed by star architect Santiago Calatrava, with its magnificent arch and long spans reaching across the river from West Dallas toward downtown.
