One of Dallas' first northern suburbs is launching a rebirth of its historic downtown district.
While old downtown areas in Plano, McKinney, Frisco and other Collin County cities north of Dallas have already gotten a redo, the original business district in Richardson has lagged. That's about to change with a major redevelopment in the works.
Developers Durkin Properties and Catalyst Urban Development have teamed up with the city of Richardson to plan big changes for the stretch of Main Street just east of North Central Expressway. Richardson is already building a new $80 million, 108,000-square-foot public safety complex at Main and Greenville Avenue.
