Westmoreland Industrial District

Postby lakewoodhobo » 30 Aug 2017 11:22

There's an industrial district (about 155 acres) just south of the Westmoreland DART Station that should be master-planned for a massive mixed-use TOD. One thing that's really unique about the site are the old railroad rights of way that could be turned into trails, especially since west of Westmoreland this same ROW will become the Chalk Hill Trail.

DART needs a major anchor for this end of the Red Line, and a mixed-income housing development with appropriate density would do a lot for ridership.

Little did I know that bcWorkshop had studied this area in 2016 and did a fantastic job of proposing a redevelopment plan for Westmoreland and several other stations.

If city building had been the primary objective of HQ2, this would have been a great site proposal. Add to that longest of shots, Red Bird Airport could take over for Love Field, opening the gates to Middle Dallas while Oak Cliff takes over for downtown Fort Worth and Tolled-Frisco/Plano --- actually, with this longest of shots, the tollway is extended to Red Bird.
