Oak Cliff's Wynnewood Village owner Brixmor plans upgrades for the 1940s shopping center
Written by Maria Halkias
...65 acres just west of I-35 along S. Zang Blvd. and Illinois Ave. The 443,681-square-foot shopping center is 88 percent leased
Wynnewood was built in 1949, decades before enclosed malls were built. It was laid out like a village with one-story buildings and parking around the streets.
The core shopping center will get new landscaping, façade and parking areas, Berger said, and a section near an existing roundabout will be a new focal point of the shopping center. Brixmor is still working on plans, he said, but a second phase will include the large vacant field in the middle of the center where a Montgomery Ward store once stood.
Oak Cliff is waking up!
It will be difficult at times as growing interest makes more and more of the area too expensive for lower income families. The effective eviction of poor people and subsequent developmental failure of the Lake Highlands Town Center a decade ago tells us alot, how much of that situation actually applies to Wynnewood Village and Oak Cliff remains to be seen.
