UNT Dallas celebrated the opening of 4315 Innovation Center in South Dallas. The UNT Dallas expansion to the Innovation Center will bring the university’s educational resources to this underserved local community. Former Dallas Cowboy Emmitt Smith purchased the property on South Lancaster Road in 2019 and redeveloped the property, which had been empty for years. 4315 Lancaster Innovation Center is a mixed-use facility that provides commercial office/workforce training and retail space delivered by community-focused organizations in a curated plan to foster an ecosystem that trains for and then creates a direct pipeline for jobs creation.
