Long Description:
Dallar Area Rapid Transit

"The Cedars area, named for its magnificent forest of conifer trees, was once a late 19th- century district of Victorian homes and one of Dallas’ first neighborhoods. However, industrial growth altered its residential character, and modern expressways stranded the area from the economic vitality of downtown Dallas.

Reflecting the neighborhood’s new urban and industrial character, station design incorporates the repeated use of steel and concrete. Tom Stancliffe’s abstract sculptures, titled Carousel, recall the cedar tree’s conical form and include a decorative design that refers to the Victorian era. Everything – including the station’s alignment – projects out to the sculpture and beyond to downtown. Demonstrating the power of mass transit to spur positive change, the area has once again attracted new residents – hundreds of artists, young professionals and other urban pioneers"
