Immerse yourself in urban bliss. While the West End is well known for its rich history, it is quickly becoming one of the most popular urban places to live in Dallas. The unique district is comprised of century-old brick warehouses that have been refurbished into dozens of restaurants and shops. The West End has always stayed true to its historic aesthetic and classic charm, but now offers more attractions, entertainment, dining, and shopping options than ever. From world-class museums like the Sixth Floor Museum to authentic shopping for Texas western wear at Wild Bill’s Western Store the history is alive. Entertainment exists here too. Explore the Dallas World Aquarium, House of Blues, Majestic Theater, and American Airlines Center - authentic Dallas waits with a twist of personality found only in the West End.


The 55-acre West End Historic District is the center of Dallas’ must-see activity. Just a couple of blocks away from the skyscrapers of the city, entering the West End is like taking a step back in time but with modern conveniences at your finger tips. The area, comprised of renovated brick warehouses, dates back to the early 20th century and now boasts dozens of restaurants and retailers. The West End is bound by Market Street, Pacific Avenue, and Woodall Rogers Freeway and is located southwest of Downtown. It's a short walk from both Dealey Plaza and the Old Red Courthouse.


As the areas surrounding the West End have become more developed, walkability and easy access to mass transit are even more attractive. One of the best things about the West End is its walkability (a 98 walkability score)! Although the district is full of attractions and things to see, you can navigate through each of your destinations efficiently via foot or public transportation. 555 Ross Apartments is walking distance to DART West End Station. Leave your car behind (and parking woes) and take DART to popular destinations like Uptown, Katy Trail and American Airlines Center. A majority of our current residents work in downtown and report a walking commute of twelve minutes or less. Now that is Car-Free Living!


Many other areas in Dallas are designed to be enjoyed by a very specific demographic. However, the West End offers activities for every age group and interest. There is something for everyone. Whether you are a family of four, a couple, or a group of friends just wanting to hang – the West End has plenty to do. No matter what you enjoy or where you are from, you will find something you love at the Dallas West End.

From hearty wild game dinners at YO Ranch Steakhouse to ending the day with a cold one at Gator’s; there is plenty to munch on in the Dallas West End.

Urban living never tasted so good. For those who live here…your taste bud adventures are just steps from your front door.
