The area is still being developed but is becoming an “urban lifestyle destination” to include 4,000 residences and 4 million-square-feet of retail space to its name when all is said and done. Many apartments and luxury loft buildings already exist in the district as well as a co-working space and, of course, office buildings. Not to mention, Victory Park is anchored by the American Airlines Center, which is home to the Dallas Mavericks and Dallas Stars. You can also find other landmarks here, like the W Dallas Hotel, House of Blues and the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. By living here, you will be right in the center of all of the action and you can’t beat having countless restaurants, bars, shops, and parks all within walking distance.
