Trolley Station Turntable

Dallas, TX

As part of an infrastructure improvement for the City of Dallas, one of our development clients partnered with the City to extend the nostalgic trolley system (McKinney Avenue Transit Authority) from the lower part of Uptown Dallas into West Village/Cityplace.  Pritchard Associates was brought on to manage the construction process on behalf of the developer. Built on a vacant lot just Northeast of Downtown Dallas, this new trolley turntable system, lit with neon lights and accented with water fountain features, allows for the restored vintage trolleys to turn and make a loop back through the West Village retail shopping district and continue into the far end of vibrant Uptown and around into the downtown Dallas Business District.  The project began in 2009 and was completed in 2012, and came in at $3.5M under the original budget.
