After being hot in the '90s and then becoming a ghost town, Deep Ellum is really on an upswing and it's going to explode in the next five years. You're coming at a good time.

Yeah, it's going to explode all right--it's going to be completely destroyed and turned into Uptown Deux. I don't mind the new Deep Ellum by any means, but let's quit pretending it has anything to do with Historic Deep Ellum.

But yeah, I do think Deep Ellum sounds like a good fit for the OP. I would ixnay the Farmers Market suggestion above just because the Farmers Market itself, which should be a magnet for young, health-conscious people, is going nowhere, particularly since the Pecan Lodge decamped for Deep Ellum.

Not sure where you get that idea. Most of Deep Ellum is owned by a few developers who have committed to maintaining and renovating the existing building in the core of Deep Ellum. The new tower is being built on a vacant lot. Another tower is planned along IH-345 in a vacant lot with the building on the lot being renovated. Everything that has happened so far in Deep Ellum has been done by developers renovating and revitalizing existing run down/vacant buildings, not tear down and rebuild which is kind of the opposite of Uptown.

What are you talking about? Businesses are filling the formerly vacant space. These apartments are being built in what was formerly a vacant muddy field.

Was this muddy field important to you as a piece of Deep Ellum history? Do you prefer the ambiance of the vacant space?
