Arlington Urban Design Center

The Arlington Urban Design Center aims to create public awareness about the importance of urban design and its impact on the quality of life, environment, and economic investment. This Design Center was established in June 2009 through a creative collaboration between the City of Arlington and the University of Texas at Arlington. Graduate students from CAPPA work closely with City of Arlington staff on business and neighborhood development projects in Arlington. Students “learn by doing” as they work with City planning staff and benefit from the opportunity of working on real-world projects. The Design Center seeks to provide urban design solutions and innovative ideas, and present before and after images, at no cost to the general public.

Projects include:

    • Business Facade Improvements
    • Development of Neighborhood Plans
    • Design Concepts for Civic Spaces and Buildings
    • Infill/Redevelopment Designs
    • Landscape Plans
    • Streetscape Designs
