Carrollton Enlists Developer for Trinity Mills DistrictPicture an urban village with a brand-name hotel, multifamily housing, office buildings, retail, restaurants and public spaces. Then connect it with pedestrian-friendly walkways to Trinity Mills Station. That's the vision the city of Carrollton and DART share for 26 acres of land the two government entities collectively own next to the rail station.
"Our intent for the Trinity Mills Transit District is a very vertical, dense, mixed-use development that will create a vibrant new destination for Carrollton," said Krystle Nelinson, development program manager for the city.
According to the city, the property - located at the intersection of Interstate 35E and President George Bush Turnpike - is the largest publicly owned transit-oriented development site in the DFW area. The land is one of the most connected properties, too, since Trinity Mills Station is served by both DART's Green Line and Denton County Transportation Authority's A-train.
DART's portion of the land is comprised of 9 acres that was once the North Carrollton Transit Center. Community artwork from the old transit center will be integrated into the new development.
Carrollton and DART approved the term sheet with their preferred developer in April. The city and DART are negotiating the master development agreement, which the partners expect to execute later this year.
