From the soulful blues of Blind Lemon Jefferson to cutting-edge animation studios, Deep Ellum has always been ahead of the curve. A place where the bold thrive and unique is the norm. Not only steeped in music and arts history, Deep Ellum is readily identifiable architecturally with its rich texture of dense brick industrial buildings.
Positioned within the overlap of Downtown Dallas and Deep Ellum, The Epic defines a new gateway to this distinctive neighborhood and serves as a transition between the pedestrian scale urban fabric and the loftiness of downtown high-rises.
The “Traveling Man” sculpture welcomes visitors to an art-lined street cutting through the site, drawing in the active street life so characteristic to the area. This thoroughfare invokes the former threshold to the neighborhood, the mural-covered Good-Latimer tunnel, once located adjacent to the development.
