The Garland and Miller TIA offers an opportunity to redevelop the long-vacant Garland Shopping Center with functional, but smaller-scale retail. There is also the opportunity to introduce somewhat higher density housing products, perhaps with a tot lot, small park, or other stabilizing public space buffer. A key objective for the City in this TIA is to provide better connectivity between commercial uses and the surrounding neighborhoods.
- Adaptive reuse/redevelopment opportunity (Garland Shopping Center)
- Gateway into downtown Garland
- Relatively stable neighborhoods
