Davis St looking west to N. Zang Blvd. from the CVS sidewalk.

If it’s been a few months since you last drove through the Davis/Zang intersection near the Bishop Arts District, you likely wouldn’t recognize where you are now. Buildings five stories tall are going up on three of the four corners, and a new CVS stands where El Corazón was. Melba St., on the other side of the district, is beginning to feel like the State Thomas neighborhood of Uptown: mid-rise apartments and town homes on all sides with a small historic home here or there.

Not only are the streets torn up from increasing utility sizes to accommodate the growth and reconstructing complete streets, but there are about 20 large-scale residential and commercial projects currently under construction in North Oak Cliff, totaling more than a quarter of a billion dollars of investment and adding more than 1,200 units.

Redevelopment of Bishop Arts is transforming this North Oak Cliff neighborhood into one of the hottest live-work-play destinations in Dallas.

It’s in the heart of the action, just steps from shops, dining, and entertainment with multiple balconies to take in the views and a 400-square-foot rooftop deck with skyline views.

This townhome has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and 2,254 square feet on two stories with a spacious modern interior. Think 10-foot ceilings, open floorplan, eight-foot windows, and a luxe finish-out.
