Parks Mall

The City of Arlington would like to commend ‘The Parks Mall at Arlington’ located at the intersection of Interstate 20 and Cooper Street.

The Alternate Sign Plan for The Parks Mall was approved by the City Council in May 2014.  The 50-foot tall sign located on the IH-20 frontage road adds increased visibility for the mall from the highway and the frontage road, and also adds increased visibility for its tenants.  It includes a center identification, which is the tallest piece and stands out in a contrasting color. The three new ground signs along the entrance driveways with slightly increased height and uniform branding theme make the entrances more visible to the driving public.  Additionally, the six new directional signs aid in directing the developments visitors.   Along with this new sign package, the Parks Mall also updated the landscaping around the newly installed signs.  (Click here to continue reading)
