Dallas Midtown (currently Valley View Mall and surrounding area)Posted: December 20, 2014 | |
Could the 70 acres at Valley View Mall be the new Dallas Midtown? This is the proposal that is scheduled to go before the Dallas City Council with construction beginning in 2016. The same architectural firm responsible for NorthPark Center, Highland Park Village and the Galleria — has done the rendering that is part of the proposal being shopped to prospective tenants. The extreme makeover for the 70-acre area bound by Preston Road, LBJ Freeway, Montfort Drive and Alpha Road will include 285,000 square feet of retail; 2,440 residential rental units; 250 condos; a 500-room hotel; 1,497,000 square feet worth of office space and a sprawling park (billed in the look book as the “Largest Programmed Dallas City Park”) that will link Midtown with the Galleria. The architectural plans are done; now it’s time to fill the expansive space with tenants, including, as you can see in one of the renderings included here, a grocery.
