I think they are still reviewing initial plans with neighborhood groups that are generally supportive.
One possible plan to redevelop Plano's ailing Collin Creek Mall depicts a sized-down retail center supplemented by mixed-use concepts and a man-made riverwalk feature. (Rendering courtesy Dreien Opportunity Partners)

Run a streetcar from the Collin Creek Residence to Downtown Plano DART station to the pending N Avenue Cotton Belt station.
It's a no-brainer; I'm not so concerned what sort of vehicle is used, just that the connection is made, Mall-Downtown-Cotton Belt.
The_Overdog wrote:Good news, but what is kind of interesting is that several property owners of the surrounding properties (those along 75 plus Big Lots, the endlessly closing furniture store, Conns, Hobby Lobby, etc ) also submitted acceptance letters saying that they would also like to rezone their properties to conform to the Collin Creek plan. I'm guessing in the next 10ish years, those rezoning requests will come in and this entire area is going to look completely different.
