Mixed-Use Development Trinity Mills Station to Add One-0f-A-Kind Water Sculpture

Mixed-Use Development Trinity Mills Station to Add One-0f-A-Kind Water Sculpture

Outside the Lines (OTL), an Anaheim, CA-based design-build construction company that specializes in creating one-of-a-kind water features, fountains, rockwork and themed environments, will be creating a sculptural water feature installation at Trinity Mills Station, a mixed-use development by KOA Partners and The Integral Group in partnership with the City of Carrollton and Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART).

“The Trinity Mills Station development revolves around a central esplanade, which was always planned to include a water feature,” says J. Wickham Zimmerman, OTL’s Chief Executive Officer. “As the design phase was wrapping up, the City and developers felt that something was missing from the space; a typical water feature was not a bold enough gesture.”

The City launched an initiative to find someone who could create a feature that would have a much bigger impact on the space and selected OTL. The Signals sculpture is expected to be completed by the grand opening of Trinity Mills Station in Summer 2023.
