What’s not to love about Las Colinas? Of all places between Dallas and Fort Worth, Las Colinas may actually be in the ideal location. But it’s so much more than proximity.
Safe, Beautiful Neighborhoods
Las Colinas has plenty of safe, friendly neighborhoods, such as Cottonwood Valley, Fairway Vista, and Fox Glen, where you can take a walk, play a round of golf, visit the park, or spend time with the kids. There are also one-of-a-kind residences like the Grand Treviso Condominiums, which rise 17 stories above the canal waterways of Las Colinas.
Between the stunning architecture, the booming business district and the abundance of great restaurants and bars, Las Colinas boasts a thriving economy. Williams Square is home to thousands of businesses, including Fortune 500 Companies like Fluor, and Kimberly-Clark, just minutes from Love Field and DFW Airport. And if you’re dining out, you can get everything from a burger to Chapati Indian Grill in Las Colinas.
The children of Las Colinas have access to some of the best school districts and private schools in North Texas, including the Irving Independent School District, Carrollton-Farmers Branch Independent School District, and The Highlands School, a private Catholic Pre-K through 12 school. There is also the North Hills Preparatory charter school, which has been ranked as a Top-20 school in America by Newsweek.
The Mustangs and Museum
No talk of what’s awesome about Las Colinas would be complete without mentioning the famous Mustangs of Las Colinas sculptures outside Williams Square. One of the largest equestrian sculptures in the world, The Mustangs are breathtakingly realistic, large-scale bronze renderings of nine wild mustangs crossing a stream. Tourists from around the world visit the plaza just to get a glimpse of sculptor Robert Glen’s work, which commemorates North Texas’ agrarian and equestrian history. Learn the story of The Mustangs ‒‒ it’s a good one ‒‒ inside the museum, where visitors can also watch a short film that conveys the time and effort that went into designing, molding, and mounting this unique piece of Texas art.
With all this a mere 13 miles from Dallas, it’s easy to see why Las Colinas is the place to live, work, and raise a family in one of the most thriving metro areas in the United States.
