Study Summary and Goals

The Near Northwest Livable Centers Study explores the creation of a Town Center along the Antoine Corridor from West Tidwell Road to Victory Drive that attracts business into the area as well as increases the area’s livability for its residents. The Livable Centers Study intends to help define practical ways to improve the area’s accessibility, increase venues for community activities and generally improve the area through projects like the creation of pedestrian and biking thoroughfares, providing bike parking at bus stops, adding beautification elements, revitalizing vacant shopping centers, improving existing parks and adapting the vacant golf course into a community center and wellness park. Specifically, the study focuses on the following “big ideas”:

  • Refine Near Northwest’s relationship to water;
  • Make parks and gardens a priority;
  • Create a place that is a destination;
  • Transform an auto-centric strip into a street for people; and
  • Leverage strategic location with upgraded transit connections.
