I moved to Dallas from Cali and have to tell you that the concept of a true live/work space is difficult to locate in Dallas however there are places you can look. I will tell you that most (like 98%) of the spaces will be corporate owned. The first place I would tell you to look is in the Deep Ellum area. Four years ago I would not have set foot in Deep Ellum (I moved to Preston Hollow instead) but now I am very happily living in a small 800 sq ft loft called Adams Hat. I have 14ft ceilings, concrete floors and original windows. We have a rail station that will open in September and I am a 5 minute walk from the Bark park (dog park). It is a fun area. There are a lot of loft buildings in Deep Ellum that might work for you. If you look around the Fair Park area you can find a lot of open loft spaces as well. A lot of these spaces are roughed out and cater to a sane but edgy clientele. If you are looking for something that is more finished look downtown at spaces like the Third Rail Lofts, the Davis Building, The Mosaic. Now id you REALLY want a hugs space for not a lot of $$$ look in a part of town called the Cedars at places like the American Beauty Mill, The Eagle Lofts and there are others. These spaces are located in a more, mmmmmmmmmmm...interesting part of town but they are gated so you will be safe. If you dig hard enough you will find a space. I am not an agent of any type...I just remember what a struggle it was for me. Let me know if I can help in any other way!
