Highland Park Village, a National Historic Landmark, is the prototype for shopping centers all over the country. The unique Mediterranean Spanish-style development was constructed in 1931.
According to the Urban Land Institute, Highland Park Village is the first planned shopping center in the United States with a unified architectural style and stores facing in toward an interior parking area, all built and managed under single ownership.
From day one, Highland Park Village has been family owned, a tradition that proudly continues to this day, with only the third sale in the history of Highland Park Village occurring in May of 2009. The current ownership family is comprised of Highland Park natives who understand the value and meaning of Highland Park Village to the community, and are committed to continuing the rich legacy that has helped define luxury in Dallas for generations.
