Downtown Dallas’ Ross Avenue gains cachet as a business address

Ross Avenue is becoming a desirable location in downtown Dallas, as old buildings change their names and new buildings configure their design to secure the street’s address.

The street continues its evolution, from the grand mansions of Dallas business leaders in the late 1800s; to an automotive row in a mixed commercial district of auto dealers, motels, and more in the 1930s; to Arts District prospect in the 1970s and 80s. Skyscrapers and cultural facilities have replaced dealerships and industrial buildings in the last few decades. Most recently, the newer buildings combined with new lifestyle amenities are bringing new life to the area. Proximity ot all the Arts District attractions, the Klyde Warren Park connection to nearby bustling Uptown, and the extension of the McKinney Avenue Trolly add to the area’s prestigious appeal.

Towers on Ross now command some of the highest rents in Dallas and avaerage ahead of all downtown rents.

The 18-story Hall Arts office tower now under construction at Crockett and Ross is already 60 percent leased. Developer Cousins Properties remodeling 2100 Ross quickly leased its building to almost 80 percent with new office tenants.
