Bryan place contains an eclectic blend of architecture, old and new, large and small, residential and commercial. Older buildings include commercial buildings and houses from the first half of the 20th Century, including the Macedonia Baptist Church and 1935 Dallas ISD Headquarters. Lots sizes are small, with many houses built to "zero lot line" setback on at least one side. Later developments have tended to be multi-family townhouses, low-rise condominiums and apartment buildings since the 1980s, and many single-family homes from the 1980s onwards.
Nearby and visible from much of the neighborhood are Baylor University Medical Center to the south and the former SW Bell tower to the east.
