An Outlook on 2018: How the Dallas Arts District Will Transform the Downtown Corridor

When construction began on Trammell Crow Center, the buzz was instant. The first major renovation to the building in 32 years began in early 2017, with the intention of transforming TCC into an iconic mixed use destination with retail, living, and dining spaces.  Intended to change Downtown Dallas, and more specifically the Arts District, from a workplace destination to a top location for a “live, work, play” lifestyle, we can expect Trammell Crow Center’s growth to continue to spur the transformation of Dallas’ Arts District and the downtown corridor.

The Dallas Arts District is undoubtedly one of the liveliest places to be in the city, and TCC is central to its space, located just two blocks south of Klyde Warren Park. As the largest contiguous arts district in the nation, there is always something new to do at one of the many museums or performance halls in the area. The expected increase in foot traffic between Ross Avenue and the Arts District with the construction of new amenities, will undoubtedly add convenience to those seeking entertainment in the Arts District and nearby Business District.


Furthermore, the addition of 2000 Ross’ residential and hotel space to the district will bring further interest to the Arts District’s amenities as both locals and visitors will be increasingly exposed to the numerous venues in the area. This can be expected to help spur growth for the arts’ venues and even facilitate new programs that benefit the community and artists alike.

New Additions

Additions to this new construction will bring in the best features for unmatched convenience. With 1.1 million square feet of office space, 50 floors, and 24/7 security, employees working at TCC will have the office space they desire. Valet parking, on-site dry cleaning, and on-site car washing and detailing will make TCC a one stop shop for convenience.

Retail and Restaurants

In addition to these new conveniences, both Trammell Crow Center and 2000 Ross will bring new retail and restaurants. The two year design process that went into planning the renovation and expansion of TCC ensures livelier streets and elevated lifestyle between TCC and the Arts District. The two acre development at 2000 Ross includes 26,000 square feet of restaurant space, a 400 unit residential complex, and a 200 room boutique hotel. A Dallas favorite, Royal Blue Grocery, has already been announced as a tenant for TCC’s new ground level offerings.

New Amenities

Trammell Crow Center’s upcoming amenities will be perfectly curated for downtown Dallas’ residents and employees. There will be a 3:1,000 parking ratio, fully modernized elevators, and 34,000 square feet of retail space. Employees will always have something to do once TCC unveils its new conference center, athletic club, and outdoor green space.


A complete transformation of the downtown area can be expected as an entirely new experience comes with Trammell Crow Center’s completion in 2018. Dallas residents who already enjoy the luxury of Downtown Dallas life and the entertainment of The Arts District will love the convenient amenities that TCC will bring to the Downtown Corridor.
