While some people still haven’t gotten over the name of the development slated for the decaying Valley View Mall campus near the Dallas Galleria, Midtown is definitely getting closer to becoming a reality now that the city of Dallas has given the developer, Scott Beck, a deadline to get the wrecking ball swinging. To further that transition from idea to fruition, AIA Dallas’ Young Professionals group is hosting an Architecture on Tap event to discuss the sprawling development.
The event, which will feature representatives from OMNIPLAN, the firm that designed Dallas Midtown, as well as Jessica Clements of Studio Outside, North Dallas neighborhood representative Sid Miller, Hammond Perot of the City of Dallas Office of Economic Development, and City of Dallas Planning and Urban Design guru Peer Chako.

As Dallas continues to grow and experience a development boom, the AIA Dallas Young Professionals Committee is excited to host a lively panel discussion on the planned changes coming to Valley View Center and the surrounding neighborhood. Once a vibrant and family-friendly mall, Valley View went into bankruptcy in 2012 and was purchased by Beck Ventures. Working with Dallas architectural firm OMNIPLAN, they created the vision of Dallas Midtown. Come learn from the people associated with the project how they are turning the “concrete jungle: into a mixed-use development and are addressing concerns about density in an already high-traffic area and incorporating green space and other amenities into this new urban center.
