transit oriented development, form-based code

The Town of Addison, Texas, has demonstrated extraordinary vision for a first ring suburb. In the 1990s it decided to work with property owners to create the award-winning Addison Circle – a high density urban mixed-use community. Continuing its leadership, Addison has determined that its major east-west arterial street – Belt Line Road - should be transformed from a series of aging and vacant industrial buildings and pad sites, into a regional mixed use pedestrian and transit-oriented destination.

TOWNSCAPE worked with the Town and RTKL to develop a plan for this important district. Townscape then drafted a form-based code to implement the vision and design concepts, and is continuing to work with the Town to update its Comprehensive Plan that will ensure Addison’s revitalization and transition from “aging first ring suburb” to “urban mixed use destination”.
