Interstate 30 represents one of Garland's key commercial corridors - a gateway into the community and an important economic focal point. The City's overall strategy for this area is to selectively redevelop underutilized properties to increase density and quality. Over the past few years, the IH 30 corridor has shown the impacts of competitive pressures from both fringe communities and other areas of the city. As such, new development opportunities along the corridor will focus on redevelopment and revitalization.
Lake Ray Hubbard amenity
Relatively large developable land tracts
Public investment at regional anchor (Harbor Point)
PGBT extension to IH 30
Market Opportunity: Mid- to Long-Term
As shown, market potential within the IH 30 Corridor Catalyst Area suggests support for a mix of residential (attached ownership and rental), retail and office uses, perhaps with vertical mixed-use environment. This Area represents a mid- to long-term (4 to 10 years) redevelopment opportunity.
The City uses its scarce public bond funds to faciliate the development and redevelopment of Garland. A number of important projects have been completed and are currently underway. Follow this link for more information on the Capital Improvement Plan.
