Texas Avenue mixed-use urban street redevelopment, Lubbock, Texas
This thesis focused primarily on establishing design principles for mixed-use urban street redevelopment. This study began with a literature review exploring the history of modern street development and investigating its changing role throughout different time periods. The literature review was followed by reviewing important literatures of successful urban streets and then formulating principles for mixed-use urban street development. The study involved a case study that examined how these principles were applied to the Overton development in Lubbock, TX. From this, lessons learned for the Overton Park development were applied to the study area, a redevelopment of a portion of Lubbock's Texas Avenue. Eventually, a master plan was formulated on the basis of these design principles and lessons learned from the Overton Park development while addressing design issues unique to the site of Texas Avenue in Lubbock, Texas.
