Welcome to Lower Greenville
Young, hip, fun. These words often describe the collection of energetic blocks running from Mockingbird Lane in the north down to Swiss Avenue in the south.
Of course, the namesake Greenville Avenue garners all of the publicity. Once a major Dallas artery before the construction of Central Expressway, the road has been a central hub of activity since the 1920s. But Lower Greenville is more than just one street.
The neighborhood is a stunning mix of new, modern homes and timeless cottages and bungalows. It possesses a genuine, tight-knit sense of community. Recent moves to preserve its historical significance and maintain its standing as an entertainment hotspot have turned it into one of the most desirable places in Dallas to call home.
