West Village was designed by nationally known architect, David M. Schwarz & Associates of Washington, D.C. It opened in the summer of 2001, as a joint development venture between Phoenix Property Company and Urban Partners, Inc., both of which are based in Dallas.
Originally containing 125,000 square feet and 42 carefully selected shops, restaurants, and the Violet Crown Cinema, the West Village District has grown organically over the past 20 years in affiliation with Cityplace Company. The West Village Retail District will include a GLA (Gross Leasable Area) of over 275,000 square feet and over 100 interesting shops, restaurants and personal care retailers. The Canopy Hotel by Hilton opened in 2018. Over 5,000 upscale residents live within walking distance to West Village.
Located in the center of Dallas’ most dynamic neighborhood – Uptown, West Village is often referred to as, “UPTOWN’S DOWNTOWN – Dallas’ most walk-able shopping, dining, residential and entertainment district.” The urban nature of West Village affords its visitors direct access to the DART Rail, the Historic McKinney Avenue Trolley and the Katy Trail. West Village District is constantly evolving and it just keeps getting better.
