The Midtown Area Regional Center has four focus areas and several mixed-use corridors. Each focus area is unique, however, they are all places where more people will live, work, and play in the future, and where there will be more gathering places, basic stores, services, and destinations. They are oriented to, or anchored by, large employers like Metropolitan Methodist Hospital, existing amenities like museums, or planned improvements to parks, trails, and high-quality transit service.

The framework map includes potential routes where high-quality transit service should be considered in the future, where bicycling should be comfortable and efficient, and where pedestrian connections to regionally significant amenities should be improved. These connections will provide choices, and multiple easy and enjoyable ways to move through the Midtown Area and access its many destinations.
