Featured Developments


Hensley Field is the site of the former Dallas Naval Air
Station, a 738-acre property owned by the City of Dallas and located in Dallas’ southwestern quadrant adjacent to the City of Grand Prairie. Situated on the north shore of Mountain Creek Lake, the site has over two miles of lake frontage and excellent views to the skyline of Downtown Dallas, ten miles to the northeast. The City wishes to leverage the value in this property to achieve multiple community objectives related to economic recovery, social equity and environmental sustainability – a catalyst for the reinvestment and resurgence of a part of the City that has not enjoyed the same levels of growth and prosperity as other parts of Dallas.


One of the largest commercial developments in Southern Dallas, RedBird is a mixed-use property located at the former site of the Red Bird Mall. RedBird is a historic, mixed-use development for Southern Dallas that will feature more than 300,000 square feet of office space, 1 acre of public space, 400,000 square feet of retail space, luxury apartments and town homes, a Marriott branded hotel, and a Tom Thumb grocery store.


Southern Gateway Park is a 5.5-acre green space is being built over I-35E near The Dallas Zoo in Southern Dallas’ Oak Cliff neighborhood. The $172 million project will be Dallas’ second freeway deck park, with the same basic infrastructure as Klyde Warren Park, which bridges downtown and Uptown. But Southern Gateway Park, a public-private partnership aimed at revitalizing the area’s economy, will have some unique touches as well, including programming reflecting Oak Cliff’s rich history. The project is currently in Phase I, which will stretch from Lancaster to Ewing Avenues. It will include most of the features that the community requested in our outreach meetings like a multi-purpose pavilion, large lawn, pavilion, children’s playground, and turnaround for food trucks and drop offs.


University Hills is a planned 270-acre development in southern Dallas next to the University of North Texas at Dallas campus. Dallas-based Hoque Global plans to bring hundreds of single-family homes, 1,500 apartments, 1.5 million square feet of commercial space and more than 50 acres of open green space on undeveloped land near the intersection of Interstate 20 and Lancaster Road. The Dallas City Council has approved up to $31.4 million in tax increment financing for the first phase of the project, which will include more than 500 single-family homes and townhomes, 250 apartments and almost 200,000 square feet of offices and retail.


The Hampton Road Streetscape Master Plan was adopted in early 2022 and was designed to make Hampton Road a destination for DeSoto’s residents. The Streetscape Master Plan and its companion Land Use Plan will be implemented through roadway design and the adoption of a character-based code.

This project is grounded in five key objectives:

  1. Walkability: Creating a safe and vibrant streetscape environment for pedestrians
  2. Connectivity: Design solutions that link adjacent communities and districts
  3. Cultural Preservation: Integrating theming and branding while maintaining the existing unique cultural landscape
  4. Green Streets: Encourage healthy, environmentally friendly and sustainable planting solutions within the street network 
  5. Placemaking: Enhance the corridor through best management practices of streetscape design to spur economic growth and promote a strong central identity


The GATEWAY at Grand Prairie Masterplan envisions an urban, pedestrian-friendly plan for all four corners of this intersection—within a new development district. OMNIPLAN designed the entire corridor with a focus on place making, plazas, dense mixed-use, active streets—and as being “a place to entertain.” And it’s intended to help foster public-private partnerships between existing land owners, developers and the City of Grand Prairie.


The Downtown Lancaster Redevelopment initiative is a developer focused effort to update and re-tenant the historic town square area. The intent of the redevelopment effort is to create a restaurant/food oriented destination that is attractive to Lancaster residents and as a unique food and cultural experience for locals and out-of-towners.

The district is in the heart of Lancaster’s original settlement and most of the buildings on the square were built in the early 1900s and retain that look and feel. The current tenant mix will feature DFW favorite local restaurants like La Calle Doce and a unique mix of restaurants, places to purchase chef-prepared pre-made meals, art events and festivals, a winery, a coffee shop featuring Japanese cold brew style beverages, a one-of-a-kind bicycle shop with clients from all over Texas, a bakery that been on the square for 40+ years, an event center and, in the near future, a remodeled historic theater. The mix of businesses features the diversity and cultural pride that makes Lancaster such a special place.


The West Midtown plan project will offer residential, retail, and commercial space with a maximum of five-stories for the building height. The development will also be connected to the city’s new trail system from Hillside Village to downtown.

This plan illustrates one possible scenario that follows three fundamental underlying objectives that
serve as a foundation for this vision:
• Respect and incorporate the natural environment into development;
• Build strong connections to the civic hub that anchors the district; and
• Extend the scale and pattern of development of downtown northward
