Deep Ellum, Dallas resounds with the eclectic. What started as a warehouse district in Dallas, Texas became an arts and entertainment hub. Punk bands like Stick Men with Ray Guns and The Hugh Beaumont Experience started in Deep Ellum. So what changed a warehouse district into music venues, restaurants, and bars?
Reasonably priced Dallas lofts.
In the 60's and 70's artists and musicians liked the cheap Dallas lofts in Deep Ellum instead of the relatively more expensive Downtown Dallas lofts. When the punk scene rolled in, the stage was set for it to take route on Elm Street.
Deep Ellum lofts stayed hot. The Goodyear warehouse, Chevrolet Motor Compan Building, and the Goodrich Warehouse rank among historical industrial buildings that were eventually converted into Dallas lofts. These lofts offer a closer connection to history then most. They also offer great views of downtown, rooftop gardens, pools, polished concrete, and stainless steel appliances. Pets are allowed, there is covered parking, and they are 578 to 1245 square feet. Rent starts at $825.
Downtown Dallas lofts offer comfortable living experiences in a contemporary urban setting. There is an ideal set-up for anyone looking to live in Downtown Dallas lofts. They each provide unique amenities for a true sense of style, individuality, and urban living. It is a great way to be in the middle of the booming metropolis of Dallas with its exciting environment and numerous social activities. By living in a loft, residents can become a part of the Downtown Dallas community.
For an artist that needs some space, live/work Dallas lofts are also available. 2400 square feet, 4 gated parking spots, and pets are all there for the artist with more needs and more cash. Like many Deep Ellum lofts, these offer concrete floors, soaring ceilings, and original windows. Rooms have sliding doors for privacy; there is a mezzanine to use for work or play, and a full kitchen too. Just a block away, the DART green line Fair Park Station pulls many attractions throughout the city that much closer. Rent starts at $2,500.
DART green line Fair Park Station itself gives Deep Ellum Lofts even more historic flair and practicality. Fair Park, a collection of Art Dec exposition buildings built for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exposition, now has trains where trolleys used to travel. The Texas State Fair has taken place in the Fair Park since 1886. Some of the attractions that the DART line connects to include: The African American Museum, the Cotton Bowl Stadium, The Hall of State, The Museum of Nature and Science, TI Founders IMAX Theatre, and the Texas Discovery Gardens.
