Developer Scott Beck looks to bring new ideas to $4B Dallas Midtown development

Dallas developer Scott Beck could bring some new ideas — ranging from bringing new interim retail concepts to creating a four-acre tree farm turned park — to his $4 billion Dallas Midtown mixed-use development in North Dallas, but redoing the project's roadways isn't something he's even considering.

"We've gone through a two-year process with the city of Dallas, the Planning and Zoning Commission and City Council to approve the overall district plan," Beck, CEO of Dallas-based Beck Ventures, told the Dallas Business Journal after last week's public meeting with Dallas' peer urban design review panel, which critiqued the street grid. "This was approved a long time ago."

The $4 billion project will include a pedestrian friendly esplanade that will connect residents and shoppers with other parts of the mixed-use development.
