DALLAS-Nancy Hormann is the new Downtown Partnership’s first permanent executive director.

Hormann, who will assume the job Aug. 1, has previously worked as executive director for six years at the Sacramento Downtown District.

She also has worked for the City Center Partnership in San Francisco, where she managed a program to create the Union Square Business Improvement District and helped to reinstate street life in this core of San Francisco retail, according to a prepared statement from the Partnership.

Hormann also has worked as a senior associate with the International Downtown Association, headquartered in Washington, DC, providing consulting and marketing strategies to about 80 clients.In the Partnership’s statement, Hormann says Downtown Dallas “is on the cusp” of revival, with the addition of nightlife and a strong residential base recreating a vibrancy it has lost over the last quarter of a century. The Main Street core once served as the principal retail district in Dallas.

Susan Mead, who has served as the organization’s interim executive director since its beginning on a part time basis, will continue working with the Downtown Partnership while focusing on her law practice with Jenkens & Gilchrist, P.C.

As part of its overall redevelopment efforts, the Downtown Partnership of Dallas has hired Madison Retail Group, to help determine tenant mix. Roadside Development, based in Washington, DC, is working on the acquisition of sites for development of stores for major retail tenants such as Gap, Giant Food and Home Depot.

A redevelopment plan, prepared with the assistance of the architectural firm RTKL, serves as a guide and includes a coordinated leasing and marketing strategy, the Partnership says in its statement.

The entire Main Street core will be redeveloped. The plans include new storefronts, rework of historic buildings, signage, streetscape improvements, and public space improvements
