Just last weekend, I headed off too the Arts District (I live about 5 minutes from Downtown) and I was suprised at how lively the city was especially for a Sunday. I went too see the Tut exhibit. The arts district looks beautiful and especially the new opera building.

Slideshow: Dallas' arts center builds to a crescendo

The Dallas Center for the Performing Arts site is punctuated by the aluminum-pipe-clad box of the Wyly Theatre and the striking red drum of the Winspear Opera House.

Seven months from opening, the Dallas Center for the Performing Arts site is punctuated by the aluminum-pipe-clad box of the Wyly Theatre (above left). Our photographers give you a closer look.

Great pictures, lowsy weather out today. The wind nearly blew me down....

Anyways, I really hope the Arts District will not be ravaged by parking lots and abandoned shacks.

Its certainly a fine development but where is the integrated aspect? I mean are there any mentionworthy residential, commercial and maybe office developments part of it? Or is it rather a mono use district?

The Arts District is a 68 acre area of downtown Dallas that is home to most of the fine arts facilities but also includes office and residential towers. New construction adjacent to the Center for Performing Arts include One Arts Plaza, the tall white building in the photo which contains offices and condos. Another apartment building is under construction next to One Arts Plaza. Also joining all of the new performance facilities together will be a 10 acre urban park, and the streetcar extension begins construction in the fall. There are other announced projetcts that haven't started yet, such as Museum Tower and the Lone Star site. It is a vibrant district, and upon opening in a few months the new facilities will change Dallas greatly.

More information about the entire district: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arts_District,_Dallas
