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.

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.
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.
