Since the opening of the DART Rail station in December 2012, Rowlett’s downtown area has seen a major transformation through redevelopment and economic expansion. The Village of Rowlett Downtown offers an appealing blend of residential and commercial spaces. Projects such as The Village of Rowlett, Bankhead Brewing, Lexie’s Boutique, Girlfriends, Modern Well Coffee, Book Club Cafe, and Barrocos Latin Cuisine, among others, have created a unique vibe for The Village of Rowlett Downtown.
Other transit-oriented development projects in the pipeline include Rowlett Station, the newest multifamily residential community located just west of DART's Downtown Rowlett Station, which is scheduled to open later this summer. Also, a 50-acre site at the corner of Main Street and the President George Bush Turnpike will include townhomes, live-work units, multifamily residential and commercial spaces.
The addition of the DART Rail station has helped transform Rowlett’s downtown into a vibrant area for residents to live, work and relax!
