How do you revive strip center retail?

SHOP selected OMNIPLAN to reimagine this lackluster retail plaza built in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Located in Far North Dallas, the center was characterized by one and two-story commercial buildings containing an array of retail and office tenants. Once slotted for demolition in favor of a multifamily development, the center has found new life as a community destination. Central to the project is a 1.5-acre City Park, developed as part of a Public-Private Partnership with SHOP and the City of Dallas. An existing retail building was torn down to free up space for the park that includes a programmable central lawn, activated promenades, playground, and public art.

The Direct Connection

OMNIPLAN’s scope included numerous upgrades, including building facade enhancements, new site lighting, significant landscape improvements, pedestrian pathway connections throughout the project, and the addition of oversized outdoor patios fronting the park. Vehicular circulation is provided on the periphery of the site. A direct connection between retail outlets and the Park creates a safe pathway for pedestrians. The project is designed to create a seamless experience for visitors as the park supports active integration of commercial uses with park open space.
