Dallas Gets an Anti-Mall Shopping Mecca

This New Development Promises to Keep Things Funky

BY // 12.13.17

If you dread trips to the mall, we have some good news for you: Dallas is getting a new shopping center with a decidedly “un-mall” vibe. The Hill, an upcoming mixed-use retail and restaurant development at N. Central Expressway and Walnut Hill Lane, is doing things a little differently. Developers are preserving the center’s character by maintaining the funky 1970s architecture, adding local artwork, and creating a unique, walkable sequence of owner–driven shops.

The development brings 200,000-square-feet of retail space, an additional 40,000-square-feet of office space, and outdoor gathering areas.

With eco-friendly home improvement store TreeHouse Dallas as its anchor, The Hill will include several green initiatives throughout the development, including a property-wide restaurant composting station, renewable energy phone charging stations, a recycling program, native landscaping, and charging spaces for Teslas.

TreeHouse has already opened its doors for business, as has a (solar-powered) outpost of Houndstooth Coffee, Nazca Kitchen, Red Hot & Blue Beer Garden, and Austin-based taqueria Tacodeli.

Many more restaurants will open in Spring 2018, with the majority fully open by Summer 2018. Newcomers include Bella Green, a chef-driven eatery with a focus on eco-friendly food and fresh ingredients; Civil Pour, a specialty coffee shop and craft beer cellar with mid-century modern flair; Hat Creek Burger, a family-friendly, fast-casual burger patio; Luna Grill, a health-focused restaurant with Mediterranean-inspired eats; and an outpost of Unleavened, a popular, healthy, all-day restaurant.

In addition to the upcoming restaurants, The Hill will also welcome two salons in the next few months. The Boardroom Salon for Men, “a masculine place” for haircuts, grooming and spa services will open another Dallas location in the new shopping center. Mattison Salon, a one-stop-beauty-shop with individual suites for beauty professionals of all kinds, will also expand with a new shop at The Hill.
