We’ve been closely following the progress of the Dallas Midtown District after Scott Beck first announced his dream of transforming the neglected Valley View Mall area into a thriving mixed-use development. That was 2013, y’all.
Of course, we’re thrilled to hear that Dallas Midtown will feature a huge park as the keystone of the development. To that end, Beck, along with Bruce Bradford and Lois Finkelman, founded the nonprofit Dallas Midtown Park Foundation.
“Since its inception we have worked with neighboring property owners, civic leaders and philanthropist to begin shaping a vision for a Dallas Midtown City park,” Beck said. “Earlier this year, the Foundation, in partnership with the Dallas City Parks Department, selected MIG, Inc. as the Foundations lead architectural consultant.”
MIG, Inc. CEO Daniel Iacofano, Ph. D., will present his vision plan to the Dallas Park Board tomorrow, Sept. 15, at 9 a.m. inside Dallas City Hall. A town hall meeting is scheduled later in the day at the Westin Galleria Ballroom, from 7 to 9 p.m. Iacofano will present his vision plan and offer the opportunity for feedback from the community at large. If you have an idea or want to see the plan in detail, this meeting is open to any and everyone.
