On Saturday, Tyler Station opened its doors to more than 500 neighbors and genuinely curious people who got a firsthand look at the 125,000-square-foot former wax paper manufacturing plant in on Polk Street in Oak Cliff.
The building was recently acquired by Oak Cliff native and new urbanist Monte Anderson.
The crowd sampled beer from incoming tenant Oak Cliff Brewing Co., watched a slide presentation on proposed uses of the building, and had a chance to look at the fabrication works of Stash Design Co., a firm specializing in repurposed and salvaged materials for interior and exterior design and decorative purposes.
Tyler Station is tapped to serve the community as a business incubator that will employ more than 100 local entrepreneurs.
