Welcome to Knox-Henderson
Should you ever hear the tired trope that Dallas isn't a walkable city, send that person to Knox-Henderson for an eye-opening experience. The retail epicenter between Uptown and East Dallas, there is never a dull moment for those that live, work, or play (or all three) in this vibrant neighborhood.
The Knox-Henderson community occupies an area just north of Dallas's vaunted Oak Lawn/Turtle Creek/Uptown district. While all four areas blend seamlessly with each other into a dynamic live-work-play environment—Knox-Henderson is very much its own entity.
It's where downtowners, uptowners, and East Dallasites go shopping. The homes and their environs eschew new urbanism, while sleek and modern townhomes and condos manage to retain plenty of character and charm to help set Knox-Henderson apart from the crowd.
What to Love
- Perfect location—5 minutes to downtown, 10 minutes to Love Field, 15 minutes to White Rock Lake
- Lots to do—the best combination of dining and shopping anywhere in Dallas
- Modern urbanism at its best—tons of well-appointed luxury condos and townhomes
- The Katy Trail at your doorstep

There's also gastropub The Porch

Things to Do
Knox-Henderson offers direct access to the iconic Katy Trail
, an urban trail that once served as a primary railroad line into Dallas. Now, the three-and-a-half-mile walking, jogging, and biking path meander its way from the northernmost point in Knox-Henderson down to the American Airlines Center in Victory Plaza.
The retail district also comes alive with lights each holiday season, and you can tour the area and the magnificent mansions of nearby Highland Park via carriage ride.
