Overton Park Land Redevelopment
In 1999, Delbert McDougal announced that McDougal Land would redevelop 325 acres of dilapidated housing located adjacent to Texas Tech University. The neighborhood known as North Overton was one of Lubbock’s earliest housing neighborhoods with the area’s oldest home being built in 1908.
A Neighborhood Reclaimed
McDougal had a plan: reclaim the neighborhood after years of deterioration, complement the growth of Texas Tech University and contribute to the revitalization of downtown. In just ten years, McDougal created the largest private residential redevelopment project in the history of the United States. The run-down, community once known as North Overton was successfully transformed into Overton Park, a model mixed used urban community of state of the art living, shopping, dining, and destination for visitors and conventions.
Overton Park is now filled with mutli-family and single family homes as well as commercial real estate. The once aged neighborhood is now a thriving community housing thousands of students within walking distance of Texas Tech University.
In the heart of the Hub City just steps from Texas Tech University, The Overton Hotel & Conference Center shines brightly as the first and only AAA Four-Diamond hotel in West Texas. This downtown Lubbock landmark blends luxury rooms and fine dining with southwestern charm and big city sophistication.
