Design District Neighborhood Guide
The boom years after World War II brought the new Interstate Highway System to Dallas, as well as levees that kept the Trinity River from flooding its banks. With these infrastructure upgrades in place, the area filled with warehouses for surrounding businesses. As industries moved out in the 1980s, designers of furniture and other home goods moved in, and the area became a hot spot for creative types and interior decorators, giving the area its name.
