Valley View Urban Center in Midtown DallasNew Dallas Midtown Urban District Planned for Valley View Center Live, Work and Play Spaces Planned for Dallas Midtown Urban District Fusion is coming to North Dallas with the development of the Dallas Midtown Urban District, a 450-acre setting featuring living, office, shopping and entertainment spaces.

The mixed-use community, to be rolled out over the next few years, will revitalize the area and showcases urban living.  Real estate in Dallas Midtown will attract tourists, families and shoppers. Luxury hotels in the plans are complimented by up to 10,000 multi-family dwellings, condominiums, and the much sought-after Dallas mid rise apartments interspersed with restaurants and retail outlets. Locally-owned stores will cater to niche shoppers while consumer favorites will continue their strong presence.  

High rise office towers will attract diverse business to the community, making it possible to live, work and play in one geographical location. Dallas North Tollway and the $3 billion LBJ Expressway project will efficiently connect Dallas Midtown dwellers to DFW Airport (19 mi.), Galleria Dallas (2 mi.), UT Dallas (14 mi.), downtown Dallas (13 mi.) and Fort Worth (40 mi.). New roads will make vehicular travel easy for residents and visitors. 

Pedestrians and families have great influence over public and entertainment spaces in the design. Shopping and outdoor leisure venues are planned in walking distance of each other and a 20-acre park. Entertainment options include a movie theater, a wave pool, surfing, and sidewalk shops. In addition to hiking and biking trails, gondola and trolley lines will balance out tourism and urban living. 

Mixed-use office, retail and residential spaces will bring tax revenues back to a lagging community. Valley View Center, a once-popular shopping mall, is at the center of revitalization of urban living in Dallas. The almost 40-year old mall has declined in recent years, but will continue its operations for the foreseeable future. It is part of the multi-billion dollar Dallas Midtown construction plans. Valley View Center was once the home of the largest popcorn ball and the location where, in 1997, George W. Bush announced his plans to run for reelection as Governor of Texas. 

Dallas Valley View Midtown, like Uptown Dallas and West Village, is expected to showcase a live, work and play urban lifestyle.  The property was purchased by Beck Ventures in 2012 with a vision of renewal and beautification. Beck Ventures developed Trophy Club, a master community. Trophy Club is an ongoing development with a country club, golf courses, shopping, recreational spaces, schools and other amenities. It is rated by D Magazine as one of the best places to live in North Texas. If you are searching for homes in North Dallas, contact one of our DFW Realtors.
