Deep Ellum TIF District

MurraySt Coffee Shop (OED-Patskin) MEDIUM RES
The mission of the Deep Ellum Tax Increment Financing District is to provide a source of funding for public infrastructure improvements anticipated to enhance the real estate market for the Deep Ellum TIF District area. The Deep Ellum Tax Increment Financing (TIF) District represents the outgrowth of the City of Dallas’ effort to provide a model for redeveloping districts to take full advantage of the expanding DART light rail system, promote transit oriented development, improve the historic core area of Deep Ellum, implement appropriate urban design standards to differentiate and brand the area, and improve the quality of development east of Downtown.

The Deep Ellum TIF District (the “District”) was established in June 2005 to assist in the transformation of the Deep Ellum area into a more diversified, pedestrian friendly, mixed-use neighborhood in the area and improve the urban fabric and connections between Central Expressway and Fair Park. Strengths of the District include a mix of unique and historic buildings that create an identifiable district, adjacency to three DART light rail stations and proximity to Downtown Dallas, the Arts District, Dallas Farmers Market, Baylor Medical Center, and Fair Park.
