Revitalization and Reinvestment in Richardson

As a mature suburb with limited undeveloped land, Richardson's planning efforts have begun to focus on reinvestment opportunities and individual efforts to revitalize private property.

In January 2009, the City Council adopted a new Comprehensive Plan, which identified six “Enhancement/Redevelopment” zones that are struggling with some of the challenges of maturing suburban cities and City officials felt the that true potential of these areas could not be determined without specific, detailed study (see map below).

Completed Projects

  • East Arapaho/Collins Enhancement/Redevelopment Study – This redevelopment and reinvestment strategy focused on underperforming industrial space, particularly the large quantity of older flex space, located east of Central Expressway between Apollo Road and Collins Boulevard.
  • Main Street/Central Expressway Enhancement/Redevelopment – This redevelopment and reinvestment effort includes two areas designated within the 2009 Comprehensive Plan: the Main Street area, which includes the historical downtown of Richardson, and the Central Expressway corridor between Arapaho Road and the City's southern border with Dallas. The vision study and market analysis were completed in early 2013. Two additional phases, which rezoned eight out of eleven sub-districts, were completed in 2015 and 2016.
  • West Spring Valley Corridor Reinvestment Strategy – The first completed redevelopment and reinvestment strategy applies to an area generally north of West Spring Valley Road, between Coit Road and Central Expressway, including several properties to the north along the Central Expressway frontage road.
