Projected Demand For Downtown Dallas Residential Units Remains Strong

Lengthening commute times and increasing fuel costs over the past couple of years have spurred an increased interest in re-purposing some historic buildings in the downtown Dallas area into residential units. One landmark which is about to undergo this type of transformation is the 50+ year-old Statler Hilton Hotel on Commerce Street which has been completely vacant for 10+ years. Centurion American Development Group, headed by Mehrdad Moayedi is currently in the process of acquiring the building. Click here to read more about their plans for this huge Dallas landmark.

I’ve talked with several clients lately who are open to exploring a future move to the downtown or uptown areas of Dallas. Wondering what’s currently available? You can start your search for all available real estate listings in the Metroplex by clicking HERE.
