CONNECTED CITY . Dallas


OMA

The area between Dallas and the Trinity River Corridor is currently dominated by highways and underdeveloped land. This zone forms a moat around Dallas, truncating downtown at Dealey Plaza and severing the city from the waterfront.


















Our vision seeks to connect downtown Dallas and the Trinity River Corridor and to reconceive the zone between them as a vibrant new linear city.
Daylighting and filtering existing watersheds and culverts reconstitutes the Old Trinity River to create a new ecological spine along Riverfront Boulevard. This new ecology provides a foundation for development by increasing property values and establishing a new, legible amenity zone adjacent to downtown.

To connect across I-35 and the railway, four strategic interventions stretch over and under them. At the North and South, new pedestrian bridges provide access to key DART stations. Closer to Downtown, Dealey Plaza and the viaducts at Houston and Jefferson are transformed to provide new gateways into the site.
Within the site, two arc-shaped loops define development, creating new connections between downtown Dallas and the Trinity and framing the new river. Where the two arcs intersect the rejuvenated waterway and Riverfront Boulevard, a chain of cultural venues and outdoor amenity areas establishes a central spine from north to south.
Along the spine, an archipelago of urban islands stretches from Rock Island at the south to the Design District at the north. Each island is a unique programmatic mix linked strategically to the areas that surround it.
