The Building

The TBK Bank Plaza is a colorful and vibrant venue located in North Dallas. Redesigned by the Better Block to improve safety and function, the new plaza features a four-windowed shipping container useable as a pop-up business shelter, check-in station, and storage unit. Rug-inspired crosswalks stretch across the streets, making the plaza easily accessible and well-defined. Public seating can support over 100 guests and includes signature hexagon benches, three two-person swings that read, "welcome" in Spanish, Arabic, and Burmese, and movable long tables and café sets. The central stage is shaded and can support a full-sized band or even a children's dance team. A series of string lights stretch across the plaza, creating a cozy and vibrant space to host your festivals, family events, outdoor celebrations, and concerts.

The Better Block Foundation works to change the world block by block by: Implementing traditional Better Blocks, which are 90-120 day community engagement projects that end with the transformation of a space chosen by and designed with the community.Better Block believes that revitalization happens in two parts, first through designing spaces for the people that live and use them and engaging that community to ensure that the changes reflect the desires of the residents.
