Area Highlights

A quick view of the most influential metrics in Reunion District.



The Reunion District is located in the western area of downtown Dallas. Named for La Reunion, a former socialist utopian community formed by French, Belgian and Swiss colonists in the mid-19th century, the area now is home to the Hyatt Regency Dallas, Reunion Tower, and formerly, the Reunion Arena. It was demolished in 2009.


The district houses Reunion Park, home to Reunion Tower. Reunion Tower is a viewing platform and is one of the most recognizable structures in Dallas. The tower is part of the Hyatt Regency Hotel complex. A Wolfgang Puck restaurant named “Five Sixty” is located at the top of the tower, offerings views over the city. At night, the dome is lit with hundreds of bulbs that flash in various sequences.

Local Events

The middle floor of Reunion Tower is used for special events managed by Wolfgang Puck Catering. Events used to be held at Reunion Arena, however, it was demolished in 2009. There are special events facilities available for rent at the Hyatt Regency.

Attractions and Shopping

Reunion Tower, the 15th tallest building in Dallas, is far and away the most major attraction of the Reunion District. The tower closed in 2007 for renovations but was reopened in 2009. The Observation Deck, however, continues  be closed to the public. Visitors can still appreciate views of the city through glass windows in the elevator shaft on the 68-second ride up to the top. A variety of restaurants are available in the Hyatt Regency Hotel complex, with additional restaurants street-side in the district.

Area History and Information

The Reunion District was originally created to bring new businesses and residents to this part of the city, improving the city’s economy. Unfortunately, a real estate downturn in the 1980’s stunted further investment in the district, and the area has been slow to develop over the last 20 years.  In 2005, however, the City of Dallas turned its attention to the Reunion District to continue restoration.
