Help the community by answering this question:


Welcome to Dallas. The name 'Uptown' has not alwyas been a part of the Dallas landscape. As developers moved into the area, just north of Downtown, they started marketing the area as 'Uptown'. It is known for newer townhomes, condos and apartments . People live there for the ability to park their car and walk to all kinds of entertainment and restaurants. It abuts another similar area know as the Knox/Henderson. It provides the same amenities and houseing.

My website listed below, is full of information you might find useful about the Dallas area. Let me know if I can provide any asistance in your move.

Additionally, there is an Uptown in Fort Worth:


I'll defer to the FTW agents for their expertise there.

Uptown is north of downtown Dallas on the north side of Woodall Rogers. The northern border is a little more nebulous. I consider it to go as far as a little south of the Knox/Henderson area. It would be on the west side of central expressway and around the east side of Turtle Creek Blvd. Think about West Village and all the cool areas on McKinney and you are thinking Uptown!

Hi Drew. I wrote a long message from my iPhone only to have Trulia's site refresh and erase everything when I went out to get you this link:


Casey has done a great job of answering your question so there is no need to repeat it but I thought the link would be helpful. Cheers.

Uptown is just north of Downtown Dallas.
Somewhat of a new urban downtown type living...
Lots of rentals, some condos/townhomes for sale, shops, restaurants, some nightlife
if you call what we have nightlife. All ages welcome, but probably draws a mid20s-mid 30s
crowd for the most part.

Here is one definition of Uptown Dallas.
Uptown is adjacent-to and north-of downtown Dallas, and is bordered by US 75 (Central Expressway) on the east, N Haskell Avenue on the northeast, Katy Trail on the northwest, Bookhout Street and Cedar Springs Road on the west, N Akard Street on the southwest and Spur 366 (Woodall Rodgers Freeway) on the south.

Uptown is a great place to live. Lots of shopping, restaurants and it is close to downtown Dallas. When the new park is finished between Uptown and Downtown it is going to awesome.
