ABOUT 

THE PLAZA

Reclaimed space designed to bring people together. 

TBK BANK PLAZA

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 usable 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. 

Public art display options, outdoor gallery space

Murals of the world, food, and nature. Things we all share.

Two-person swings that read "Welcome" in three languages.

COVID-19 Announcement

The world is grappling with an issue of enormous scale and human impact, and our hearts go out to all who have been affected by the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19). Better Block has been monitoring the developments and guidance coming from the Department of Health and we believe it would not be responsible to hold large events at the TBK Bank Plaza while there is so much uncertainty.

 

At Better Block, we believe it is our role and responsibility during this time to prioritize two things: the health and the well-being of our neighbors and partners while also playing a constructive role in supporting local health officials and government leaders as they work to contain the virus. We are looking to actively partner with any organization or agency that is looking to provide health services to the Vickery Meadow neighborhood.
