From a resurgence of corporate relocations to residential, hotel and commercial development projects, CEOs, developers and small business owners are all finding value in having an address Downtown.

In fact, in May of 2012, Chief Executive's annual survey of CEOs ranked Texas as the best place to do business. With high scores in living environment, quality of workforce, and tax and regulatory environment, as well as proximity to important assets like DFW Airport, Love Field and the Inland Port, Downtown Dallas is considered an epicenter of domestic and international investment activity.

  • 7,800 residents in the CBD
  • 38,000 residents in Downtown Dallas

The heart of every big city is its downtown and Dallas is no different. It wasn't all that long ago that downtown Dallas was frequented only by the people that worked in its impressive skyscrapers, but the now vibrant city center is in the midst of a true renaissance. Whether you want to check out an exciting nightclub, a 4-star restaurant or a dive bar for some live music, downtown has it all. Window-shop at the flagship Neiman Marcus, enjoy an al fresco beverage at Main Street Garden or admire the contrast between the classic architecture and the modern skyscrapers in the downtown skyline. For a birds-eye view of the city take an elevator to the top of Reunion Tower for one of the best views in town of one of the most beautiful skylines in the country.

Downtown Dallas is the Central Business District (CBD) in Dallas , Texas USA , located in the geographic center of the city. The area termed "Downtown" has traditionally been defined as bounded by the downtown freeway loop: bounded on the east by I-345 (although known and signed as the northern terminus of I-45 and the southern terminus of US 75 ( Central Expressway ), on the west by I-35E , on the south by I-30 , and on the north by Spur 366 (Woodall Rodgers Freeway). The square miles, population and density figures in the table to the right represent the data for this traditional definition.

However, the strong organic growth of Downtown Dallas since the early 2000s and continuing into the present has now resulted in Downtown Dallas, Inc.'s expansion of the term "Downtown" to include the explosive growth occurring immediately north of the Woodall Rodgers Freeway in the Victory Park and Uptown/Turtle Creek Districts as well as past Central Expressway to the east in the Deep Ellum and Bryan Place Districts, past Interstate 30 to the south with the Cedars District, and jumping over Interstate 35E to the west to include the Design District and Lower Oak Lawn. In total there are 15 districts that now form the definition of "Downtown".

In 2013 "Downtown Dallas" is now viewed as an interconnected grouping of dense and urban center city districts, that while unique in their own right, also share strong urban linkages to each other and collectively participate in their role as Downtown Dallas.
