The Neighborhood: Lower Greenville is most notably recognized as the trendy, laid back, restaurant and entertainment district of East Dallas. The boundaries of the district are generally thought to exist from Mockingbird Lane on the north and North Henderson Avenue on the south bordering I-75 to the west, and Abrams Road to the East.
Access to Dallas’ Top Neighborhoods: Proximity to the other top neighborhoods of Dallas has been a large contributor to Lower Greenville’s rise in popularity and real estate values. Within minutes, residents can conveniently access Dallas’ most popular neighborhoods like Park Cities, Lakewood, Uptown, Downtown, and Deep Ellum.
St. Patrick’s Day: The biggest event of the year for the neighborhood occurs annually in March, Dallas’ St. Patrick’s day parade which takes place along Greenville Avenue moving south from Blackwell Street to SMU Boulevard which culminates with an outdoor concert at University Boulevard. Hundreds of thousands take part in the festivities as Greenville Avenue is blocked off from traffic and local residents and visitors pack the Lower Greenville bars and restaurants.
New Development: One of the newest developments is Crest at Glencoe, a 180-unit apartment complex from Lennar Multifamily Communities finished in 2015. Crest at Glencoe is located one quarter mile south of Mockingbird Avenue on the east side of Glencoe Park. Another is the 43-unit Magnolia on Matilda which began leasing in late 2015 and is located one block east of Greenville Avenue on the southwest corner of Oram and Matilda Street.
