Roanoke, Texas


An Authentic Downtown Destination
Roanoke, Texas, is located northeast of Fort Worth near the heart of the Alliance Texas multi-modal distribution complex. Roanoke has experienced dramatic increases in population and tax base in the recent past, spurring their interest in redeveloping Downtown. Unlike many “bedroom” communities in rapidly growing metropolitan areas, the community leadership recognized the rich heritage that is Roanoke and has seized the opportunity to preserve the essence of its downtown. Gateway Planning Group was retained in order to assist the city in this mission.


Market Driven Implementation
The Gateway Team developed a master plan, identifying the strengths of downtown in order to attract increased tourist and business activity. It then led the conceptual redesign of Oak Street, based on the Master Plan, resulting in the City investing $8 million for reconstruction after final design by Halff Engineers with Gateway Planning’s support.
Finally, a form-based code was developed and adopted, complementing Oak Street’s redesign and reconstruction. This combination unleashed substantial investment including the adaptive reuse of six existing buildings and the construction of six new buildings. Almost a dozen new restaurants have opened with great fanfare, resulting in Roanoke’s rebranding as the “Unique Dining Capital of Texas.”


Award
