A $76M project by The Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation and VisitDallas will add a 20K SF pavilion and additional green space on 1.2 acres, completing the original vision of the park.

The pavilion will house a visitor’s center called the VisitDallas Experience Center, which will have interactive information on the history of Dallas and will give visitors and locals alike a place to pick up a jersey or VIP tickets to one of the area’s sports teams, get last-minute deals on theater seats or learn about events hosted across the city in the week ahead. The park’s expansion will “assist with the Park’s long-term financial sustainability, and allow the privately-operated park to expand the more than 1,300 free programs and events it already provides annually,” the partnership said in a statement.

Design and construction of the project are scheduled to begin in 2019, with completion anticipated as early as 2022.

The 5.2-acre, $110M Klyde Warren Park opened in October 2012 and since then has welcomed over 6 million visitors, created more than $2B in economic development and increased property value in the area around the park, according to The Woodall Rodgers Park Foundation and VisitDallas. The new phase of development will provide another $850M in stimulus to the area, HR&A Advisors President Eric Rothman said in a release about the expansion.

EXECS

Timothy Keys was named vice president of operations for MYCON. He will oversee all of MYCON’s projects from preconstruction through completion and will guide the human resources, finance and marketing groups. He has 31 years of industry experience and has worked on over $1B of construction projects.
