Historic Downtown Cedar Hill Opportunities

Where Business + Charm Grow Naturally

The future is bright for Cedar Hill, and the sun is shining brightly on its Historic Downtown. A charming place with healthy businesses, historic sites, and best of all plenty more opportunity for growth. The area is part of the City Center Plan. Citizens, business owners, and community stakeholders adopted this plan to guide future development creating a mix of urban and suburban-style offerings accommodating the growing demand for natural, open, walkable, safe, fun, and healthy places to live, work, and play. 

Cedar Hill's time is now. Development partners are revving engines, and it's time to get in the race. From Straus Road at Pleasant Run to Tidwell at 67 brings opportunity for commercial and residential development. Best of all, it's zoned, programmed, and planned, providing space for various uses. But hey, bring your imagination, because we in Cedar Hill have a vision and look forward to partners in progress who'll celebrate in the future success.

Historic Downtown Cedar Hill has an opportunity for everyone. From our 'cheeky neighbors' to the coziest of pizza joints, this unique place within Cedar Hill has the charm from its past but is prime and ready for its future. Just ask the folks around the square. Tell 'em we sent you!


Did you know? The City of Cedar Hill is the oldest organized community in Dallas County with an estimated population of just over 45,000 people. Historic Downtown was the first developed area of the City. Through a series of adopted concept and development plans, the City has been preparing for a revival of the downtown in a big way. The area defined by the red boundary lines pictured include the "Old Town District" overlay. This district extends the neighborhood scale and character of the Historic Downtown area to primarily residential areas bordering the train tracks that run through the southwest section of City Center.

 Primary land uses of this district could consist of medium- to high-density residential with other neighborhood-serving uses such as restaurants, entertainment, local retail, community gardens, and small offices. Building types could include one- to three-story townhomes, rowhomes, condos, and other medium-density residential buildings, mixed with existing single-family structures. The Historic Downtown district will continue to "facilitate enhancement and revitalization of the original old town area's turn-of-the-century architecture and the Texas small town character" and to encourage pedestrian-oriented activities and uses. 

With approximately 294 acres in the Historic Downtown area, there is plenty of room for growth and development.
