The success of Ennis’ ongoing historic downtown revitalization program continues to gain national attention and momentum as an exciting experiential destination with a multitude of opportunities for development and investment, as well as public-private partnerships.
Downtown Ennis is a distinctive, pedestrian friendly community providing a growing number of options for living, shopping, dining and entertainment. It merges award-winning urban design with the preservation and revitalization of classic architecture and needed improvements to vital infrastructure, all creating a singular future.
The North and South Plazas are downtown development projects seeking interested private partners and developers to participate. To learn more, contact Marty Nelson (contact information).
The vision for the North Plaza incorporates business, specialty retail and restaurant space with city government offices (City Hall, Municipal Court and Police Station) and public gathering spaces for events and activities (amphitheater, water features, seating, pedestrian-friendly traffic flow and shaded community areas).
The South Plaza features a mixed-used complex with retail and dining on the ground level and residential housing on the second floor, as well as welcoming gathering space with a large gazebo.
