Omni/DART Convention Center Pedestrian Improvements - City of Dallas

The Omni/DART project is a redevelopment of a surface parking lot near the Dallas Convention Center into a 23-story hotel with a parking garage, 2,877 sq. ft. of retail space, and 19,820 sq. ft. of restaurant space. The infrastructure project includes sidewalks and open green space stretched along South Lamar Street. Light installation and signage around the entrance of the DART Convention Center Station are designed to promote pedestrian circulation and safety. The design components include lighting, landscaping, and attractive public spaces.

The infrastructure project was funded through the 2009-2010 Sustainable Development Call for Projects. NCTCOG funded $2,156,842 with a local match of $539,210 from the City of Dallas for street construction, pedestrian amenities, and landscaping on Lamar Street from Ross Avenue to Canton Street.
