Architecture

Designed by Eero Saarinen and Kevin Roche in the early 1960s, NorthPark Center has maintained an honesty to its original design. For the most recent expansion, NorthPark's owners returned to Omniplan (Omniplan), the architectural firm that was the architect of Record executing Sarrinen's and Roche's 1960s design. The expansion turned NorthPark's original U-shape into a square design surrounding a 1.4 acres (5,665.6 m²) landscaped garden known as "CenterPark". Featuring a series of lawns, 41-year-old live oaks and red oaks, and a small collection of art, CenterPark doubles as a park area for visitors and customers to enjoy. This is the only shopping center in the country built around a landscaped garden. NorthPark Center received both the Texas Society of Architects annual Design Award and the 25-year Design Award in 2007 for the original design by Harrell & Hamilton (now Omniplan). Even at the age of 40 years, NorthPark Center has not suffered the dead mall

When the mall was reopened in 2006, The Dallas Observer used the mall's ambiance as documented in the film as a source of comparison. "The place looks like a tricked-out spaceship compared to the stark, cold NorthPark in which True Stories was filmed exactly 20 years ago. It looks like the old NorthPark--damned if you can tell difference between the old bricks and the new ones; this thing looks like it was built in a time machine--yet it's brighter too, a friendlier version of the same ol' place."
