GFF Architect Jon Rollins Discusses Dealey Plaza Facelift on KERA

Fundraising has begun on completing the Dallas landmark’s facelift before the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy in 2013.

Good Fulton & Farrell completed the first phase of renovations to Dealey Plaza in 2008. Phase One included replacement of deteriorated concrete paving adjacent to the Houston Street fountain basins, restoration of the fountain coping, and repair and restoration of the peristyles and pylons. Phase One had a construction budget of $650,000. Future phases will include restoration of the pergolas, restoration of additional paving and steps, landscape improvements, improvements for accessibility and restoration of the fountains to their original configuration.
