Come see urban redevelopment in action, and under construction...


Developer Paris Rutherford (MAUD '93, GSD Alumni Council and Harvard Club of Dallas Director) will lead a hard hat tour of his new mixed-use development in downtown Arlington. He will describe how he approached the City to form a public/private partnership to create a new city center for Arlington. This involved demolishing the prior central library to pave way for a new 90k sf library, a new City Council chamber, public plaza and public streets, and his mixed-use urban block that is comprised of 244 residential lofts, 16k sf ground level live/work space, 18k sf retail and restaurants, and a 610 space shared parking garage all on the former library site. 


Being under construction with the urban form in place, now is a good time to see how these steel, concrete and wood frame buildings are coming together to form this new city center. Please bring a hard hat, if you own one. Afterwards, we'll walk across the street for lunch and conversation at Twisted Root Burger Company.
