South Garland Avenue

Development OpportunitySouth Garland Avenue Catalyst Area

South Garland Avenue represents one of the city's key commercial corridors - a gateway into the community from IH 635 and a historic arterial connection to downtown Dallas.  The City's overall strategy is to diversify large infill sites (e.g., Hypermart and Garland Shopping Center) to transform the area into a viable employment and training center, taking advantage of regional transit access.  New opportunities along this corridor will thus focus on redevelopment and revitalization. 

Key Assets

  • Anchored by two large vacant infill tracts 
  • IH 635 improvements 
  • DART Park & Ride
  • Proximity to educational facilities 

Market Opportunity: Mid- to Long-Term

As shown, market potential within the South Garland Avenue Corridor Catalyst Area suggests support for a mix of residential (attached ownership and rental) and retail uses, perhaps within a vertical mixed-use environment.  This Area represents a mid- to long-term (4 to 10 years) redevelopment opportunity.
