Main Street Renovation
The retail core in Downtown Dallas is in the process of being restored to its former prominence through the Main Street shopping strip renovation. This master planned restoration, pictured left, is bringing new retailers, open storefronts, cafes, landscaping, refurbished sidewalks, additional street lighting, and new residences which will all create a living and breathing urban landscape open 24/7 to serve both residents as well as the workforce.

Trinity River Corridor www.trinityrivercorridor.org
Dallas Mayor Laura Miller is personally spearheading the long-term master planned development of the Trinity River Corridor into a natural, recreational amusement park that will include a water feature for wading out those long, hot summer days as well as the largest forest in the south. The development of the Trinity River Corridor will bring with it two new Calatrava bridges that will link the West End and American Airlines Center to west Dallas and Oak Cliff.
A $365,000 Master Parks plan is underway for Downtown. The Master Park plan was funded half by the city and half by downtown landowners represented on the mayor's Inside the Loop Committee. The Master Parks plan is a multi-block, signature park encompassing an estimated 10-acre site and includes preserving several nearby historic buildings as well as presenting opportunities for new development. Several destinations are being considered and are being reviewed by park consultants.
