The Forest-Jupiter Station/Walnut Corridor area offers a range of longer-term opportunities, including employment, higher-density residential, and transit-oriented development. The City’s overall strategy for this Area is to leverage assets such as Baylor Hospital and DART transit to create a regional live/work district. Currently, this area consists of a diverse mix of lower intensity uses and a high degree of underutilized property.

Market Opportunity: Mid- to Long-Term
As shown, market potential within the Forest/Jupiter /Walnut Catalyst Area suggests demand for employment space, supported by retail and residential (ownership and rental) uses. This Area represents a mid- to long-term (7 to 10 years) redevelopment opportunity.
The City uses its scarce public bond funds to faciliate the development and redevelopment of Garland. A number of important projects have been completed and are currently underway. Follow this link for more information on the Capital Improvement Plan.
