Casa Linda Plaza, the oldest shopping center in Dallas, is treasured by its neighboring residential enclaves. When the center’s owner announced a plan to remove five mature cedar elms as part of the center’s remodel, neighbors balked. (Photo Courtesy of Edens)

Built in 1946, Casa Linda Plaza ranks as the oldest shopping center in Dallas. It encompasses three of the four corners of Garland Road and Buckner Blvd., and serves the surrounding neighborhoods, which include Casa Linda, Forest Hills, Little Forest Hills, Emerald Isle, and so on. And if there’s one thing that’s sure to set off this committed coterie of conservationists who favor these ‘hoods, it’s trees. Specifically, the removal of trees. And when Edens, the corporation that owns Casa Linda Plaza unveiled a plan to remove five mature cedar elms from the walkway opposite Natural Grocers, let’s just say that it was not a popular decision. 

However, thanks to the measured response from District 9 Dallas City Council member Mark Clayton, not only are residents getting a more robust and shady canopy, they’re also in discussions to bring back a neighborhood tradition — the Casa Linda Plaza Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony.

Special philanthropic event at this stunning property Friday evening!

When buyers walk into a home, they are focused, naturally, on everything the eye can see. That’s why design and photography is so important when marketing a home. 

But increasingly, as this bout with Atmos Energy in some Dallas neighborhoods has taught us, the focus needs to be on the things we cannot see with the naked eye: upgraded components such as electrical wiring, new switches, roof shingles, insulation, HVAC, sub flooring and of course, pipes inside, pipes outside.

9606 Losa in Casa Linda Estates Lake and Garden District fits the bill of perfection more than most “pretty picture” homes you see. The builder has years of experience remodeling homes, knows what works, knows that in the end, quality work is not just where you see it, but where you don’t, that makes a house rock solid.

The home was born in 1947… (more…)

Casa Linda is one of those neighborhoods that offer the best of both worlds. Homes sit on over a half acre with large mature trees. The lack of curbs makes you feel as if you are out in the country. However, it’s only eight miles from downtown and eight minutes from the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake. There are about 450 homes in the neighborhood and our Inwood House of the Week, at 1418 Bella Vista, is definitely a one-of-a-kind casa grande! Homes of this size don’t come along every day, especially on over an acre of land. (more…)

The Natural Grocers at Casa Linda Plaza was once home to a three-screen theater, one of the first to be integrated into a shopping center back in 1945. It closed in 1999, much to the chagrin of the neighborhood. 

East Dallas keeps on truckin’ up the list of the most popular parts of the city, and its neighborhood Casa Linda is no different. If you haven’t been around this little area of the land for awhile, you may be surprised at the growth and increasing coolness.

Fairly recently, the Casa Linda area has acquired new bars, restaurants, and shops. Goodfriend Package (an extension of the big guys across the street), 20 Feet Seafood Joint, Steel City Pops, and Savor Patisserie (for macaroons) are among the newbies.   (more…)
