Vickery Meadow is the densest community in the DFW area consisting solely of multi-family apartments and condos. This working-class community has a very large immigrant population that is approximately 23% Black, many of which are recent African immigrants. Much of the remainder are immigrants from Hispanic nations.
Vickery Meadow was originally designed as an ‘adult-only’ community made up of mostly single adults. However this ‘no-children’ rule was labeled discrimination. Since then the demographics became more family oriented because it offered a great location close to employment centers, shopping, and nightlife. Within walking distance to Northpark Mall, the brand new park lane development and to the Park Ave DART light rail station Vickery Meadows remains one of the most convenient places to live in Dallas.
Household incomes here average about $25,000 a year with less than 60% of adults holding a high school diploma. Median condo values averages range from $45,000 to $144,000 while average rent ranges $630 a month.
