Redbird Mall: Developing for the Community With Peter Brodsky 

April 5, 2022 

Noon-1 p.m. 

Speaker: Peter Brodksy 

 

Past policies have left Southern Dallas underinvested and underdeveloped. 95 Ninety-five percent of office space in Dallas is north of Interstate 30 and only five percent of office space is south of Interstate 30. This means that 40 percent of the population in Dallas have to commute to and from work. Five years after launching the redevelopment of Redbird Mall in Southern Dallas, owner and developer Peter Brodsky has proven his thesis—the demand for a vibrant mixed-use development south of Interstate 30 in Dallas is a sustainable investment that generates a profit. In a forgotten part of the city that lacks almost every amenity from restaurants to medical care facilities, Peter Brodsky has been building bridges and creating partnerships throughout Dallas to attract every quality of life. Register to hear Peter Brodsky speak about the Redbird Mall development and how he hopes to provide equality to the people of South Dallas.
