The Dallas Midtown vision was initiated by Dallas City Councilmember Linda Koop in 2010. Her vision has been adopted by the City of Dallas and the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce to create a public-private partnership that includes a collaborative effort among major property owners to develop the 450 acres that include Valley View Center and its surrounding areas.

Today, Councilmember Koop’s vision is becoming a reality with the plan for a vibrant town center that offers a place for people to live, work and play. Last year, the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce received financial support from the City of Dallas to oversee the vision phase of the project. Architectural firm OMNIPLAN was selected in the fall of 2012 to create the vision plan and apply their expertise in urban planning to consider the possibilities of a redesigned and revitalized Midtown area.

Realizing the Dallas Midtown vision will continue to be a collaborative effort of public and private entities that includes business and property owners, community members, the North Dallas Chamber of Commerce and the City of Dallas. We encourage the community to speak up and get involved to help shape the future of this area into a popular urban destination.
