The Principal Residences


Today, this urban neighborhood is in the midst of another wave of exciting growth and change. Located close to downtown and its surrounding employment, residential, and entertainment districts, this Italian Renaissance-style icon is an historic icon that has stood the test of time as it has preserved the historic character of this remarkable community.

Buildings like Davy Crockett deserve a second chance. With so much “ordinary” apartment living in Dallas, The Principal stands out with its nearly 14 foot ceilings, soaring windows, broad hallways that offer residents a ‘second living room’, and original wood floors that speak to you. And, the park next door allows you play tennis, basketball, enjoy neighborhood festivals, or hang out with your four-legged best friend.

The Principal is truly in a Class by itself – just like the people who choose to live here. Our residents enjoy the benefits of the historic beauty of a Dallas icon with modern amenities, finishes, and furnishings. Walk or bike to work at Baylor, Texas A&M, downtown, or enjoy the nightlife in Deep Ellum and Uptown. Experience the nation’s largest Arts District. Or hang out at Klyde Warren Park. All minutes away.


I just moved my daughter in and love that the old school building was restored! The original hardwood floors, high ceilings and large windows are beautiful! We are both so happy that this is her home and close to downtown where she'll be working.

We’ve been living here for about a week and are absolutely in love with this place! The tall ceilings and hardwood floors are beautiful and add so much character. The apartments are designed very well. I was nervous to get a studio apartment.

I went to school here in the mid 50s, and I'm so glad this building was saved. I love the tall ceilings and the weathered floors.


Rita A. Kern

My old elementary school how exciting is this! I’m looking forward to the open house and YES I look forward to it being my future home.
