The Neighborhood. Home of The Cedars

The Cedars, is a residential oasis just blocks from Downtown Dallas. Currently undeveloped, fairly unknown and virtually uninhabited… Let’s call it a real estate “diamond in the rough”. The Cedars, a haven for artists and other creative types for over 20 years, has recently experienced the beginnings of an urban transformation with new townhomes, apartments and developments such as DART’s Cedars Station, the loft apartment/retail development South Side on Lamar, the Dallas Police Headquarters, The Beat high-rise loft condos, restaurant and entertainment venues such as The Palladium, Gilley’s Dallas, Poor David’s Pub, Lee Harvey’s, Baby Back Shak, Opening Bell Coffee, Cedars Social NYLO Boutique Hotel and others.

Developing a One-In-A-Kind Community

DigIt! Development has worked diligently planning this one-of-a-kind community for the past three years.

Our “community first” development model is highly unique in the industry.

The DigIt! Development team consists of stakeholders in the community, who have a keen understanding of the neighborhood, the neighbors, the businesses, and all relevant city services. We have been in constant communicating with these parties for years.

As a result, we have quite a good grasp on how to get things done in the Cedars and have been very successful doing so.

The Cedars went from a “so called” transitional neighborhood to “one of the new hot spots to live in Dallas”, says the Dallas Observer.

It is also one of the safest areas of Dallas based on city crime statistics.

We figured once the significant issues and concerns were addressed, The Cedars would be one of the most amazing, untapped areas in the city.

The Cedars is literally downtown’s “front yard”; all we had to do was to “clean up the yard a bit”.

We want The Cedars to maintain its’ charming character while becoming a phenomenal place to live, work and play.

We will never stop being positive neighborhood activists, but we are now ready to present The Cedars and our development project to the rest of Dallas.
