I heard that Uptown Dallas is the "Beverly Hills of Dallas?" Why?

You heard wrong. Way wrong. Preston Hollow or Highland Park / University Park (collectively the "Park Cities") are the most exclusive neighborhoods in Dallas. I'd say the Park Cities is most like Beverly Hills, with some large distinctions, including topography.

Uptown is urban and sort of exclusive. You can find a nearby apartment for a pretty reasonable price. So the "Beverly Hills" analogy really doesn't even apply to exclusivity. It ain't that exclusive, except for the Residences at the Ritz Carlton.

Beverly Hills is mainly suburban and very exclusive, even for California.

The person who told you this doesn't understand the Dallas market.

Yeah, no idea why it'd be compared to Beverly Hills.

Don't know where or why you heard that.
Not sure we really have a 'Beverly Hills' of Dallas.

Some of the new buildings there remind me of Wilshire Blvd.

We do have a Beverly Hills of Dallas, but it's certainly not Uptown. It would be Highland Park which was laid out by the same urban planner (Wilbur David Cook - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) as Beverly Hills. I can see the resemblance, although HP doesn't have the hills and the palm trees that BH has.

You should hope that wasn't from people you trust.

This is true.

Uptown has nothing in common with BH. Nothing.

The Clampett's from the Beverly Hillbillies moved there back in 2007, so it must be true
