This new 24-hour, mixed-use development in West Dallas offers a hub of activity to the community, bustling with farmers’ markets, public art displays by local artisans, more than 200 modern studios and lofts, local retailers, a yoga studio, a full-service salon, and unique restaurants. Local organic grocery market Cox Farms anchors the site while an outdoor green courtyard provides gathering and play space for community events.
Maintaining the scale and character of the surrounding industrial neighborhood of the near west side, the architecture of Sylvan|Thirty is unique for a Dallas development, opting for a honest and direct design utilizing materials such as stucco, metal siding and roofing, tactile woods, concrete and masonry. Situated on a previously occupied, 6.5-acre “brownfield” site, Sylvan|Thirty brings fresh economic vitality and a sense of community to a once-dilapidated area. Its arrival has catalyzed other nearby developments to spring up, generating a development renaissance on the city’s west side.
