Bishop Arts is Dallas’s most creative, eclectic neighborhood. It has the communal vibe of a small town but is infused with imagination of Dallas’s best and brightest. With 60+ independent
restaurants, galleries, studios and boutiques along a lovingly restored historic main street, it is a special place.
We’ve taken 10 years to figure that out. Traveling the world. Employing some of the finest architects and designers. Recruiting our own team of artists.
The answer, in the end, was simple: Give up half our allowed density and build to a human scale. Value design over efficiency. Utilize real, quality materials that grow more beautiful over time. Devote 1⁄4 of the land to open space, so there is room people can gather. Recruiting only the foremost creatives to join us as retail partners. Build dwellings to be part of a neighborhood rather than simply a place to live.”
