Temple City Center
As you stand on the corner of Central and 4th among three of the most iconic buildings in Historic Downtown Temple, you are reminded of a time when pedestrians walked along tree-lined streets to and from retailers, restaurants, and cafes; from worksites to homes.
Introducing a new life and broad functionality to the Hawn Hotel and its accompanying Arcadia Theater, this intersection is being re-envisioned through its revitalization and expansion. In redeveloping these vital structures, Temple has begun taking several necessary steps.
The creation of new streetscapes and pedestrian amenities will encourage the redevelopment of vacant and underutilized buildings.
