Around the Area
The Cedars neighborhood of Dallas is a rapidly transforming area, located near downtown. It has a rich history, starting in the 1870s when the area was developed for residential use due to its proximity to the city center and the railroad network. The neighborhood was named for the abundance of red cedar trees in the area, and it was home to many wealthy professionals and the city's original Jewish population. However, in the early 20th century, the area's elegance declined as factories and warehouses were built in the neighborhood, replacing much of the tree canopy and the Victorian homes. In the 1960s, the construction of the I-30 corridor further damaged the remaining historic homes. Today, many of the old warehouses and factories have been repurposed and turned into lofts, and new residential construction has been interwoven with the historic fabric of the neighborhood, creating a diverse and eclectic urban identity. The Cedars is now experiencing a resurgence in popularity due to its affordable land values, proximity to downtown, and the establishment of popular bars, restaurants, and music venues. The railroad remains an important part of the neighborhood's identity, and the proposed high-speed rail terminal in the area will likely lead to further growth and prosperity. The South Side neighborhood of the Cedars has also seen significant development in recent years, anchored by the South Side on Lamar development and the Dallas Police Department Headquarters. The neighborhood is well-connected to the rest of the city through several multimodal transportation options.
