Welcome to Downtown!

Chartered in 1873, Richardson, Texas was generally centered between present-day Greer and Phillips streets on the north and south, and between Central Expressway and Greenville Avenue on the west and east. By 1881 Richardson was a thriving community with several stores, including general stores, groceries, and drugstores, four doctors, several cotton gins, and churches. Today, the area is experiencing a renaissance as an urban center stimulated by both private and public sector reinvestment, creating a fascinating mix of future and past. 


Several public infrastructure and beatification projects are now underway on Main Street to create a more walkable and pedestrian-oriented environment. In addition, a new 14.5-acre development called Gateway is planned for the northeast corner of Main and US 75 and will bring four and five-story mixed-use buildings along the Main Street frontage with two and three story townhome blocks along historic Interurban Street.
