2000-2001 Call for Projects
Old Town Plaza is an open space redevelopment project in Historic Downtown Lewisville located a half-mile west of the Denton County Transit Authority’s (DCTA) Old Town Commuter Rail Station. The new plaza area has access to the DCTA’s Route 22 bus line, which services most of Central Lewisville and connects to two rail stations that provide access to Downtown Denton and Downtown Dallas.
The project included construction of Wayne Ferguson Plaza across the street from City Hall on West Church Street, developing land for mixed-use buildings, and improved pedestrian infrastructure, including sidewalks, pedestrian crossing features, public amenities, and bicycle infrastructure.
The development was designed to provide the City with a higher residential and commercial density via mixed-use land development and create a safe environment for pedestrians. The public plaza has improved the pedestrian experience downtown and enhanced the connections between the local retail spaces, City Hall, and the Lewisville Arts Center. Since completion, the Plaza has become a hub for local events such as concerts, art pop-ups, and outdoor fitness classes.
The project cost of $1,800,000 was funded through public-private partnerships.
