Belmont is a neighborhood in east Dallas, Texas (USA). The neighborhood mainly consists of a collection of houses constructed in the 1910s and 1920s, in the Lower Greenville area. The houses are mainly Craftsman-style bungalows, and occasionally Tudor or Prairie style homes.[citation needed]

Belmont Addition Conservation District[edit]

In 2004, the Belmont Addition Conservation District was formed, under the City of Dallas Ordinances, with the intent of preserving the unique character of the neighborhood. This was in response to the growing number of "teardown" properties where developers and builders bulldozed vintage homes in order to put up new ones in old neighborhoods. Often, the style of the new homes were completely out of character with the existing neighborhoods prompting labels of "McMansions" or "Starter Mansions".[citation needed]
