The Shops at Willow Bend, Starwood Retail Partners

The brief

“We are opening The District, a chef-driven gourmet experience at The Shops at Willow Bend in Plano, Texas. On opening day, some of the restaurants will not be ready. Can you propose realistic 3D designs and work with our design team to show the public what they can expect when The District will be done?”

The Approach

3DWD’s project managers visited the site to develop an approach for this project, both from a creative point of view and for the execution of the project. Because of the size of the barricades and therefore the renderings it was necessary to be clear on the creative direction, because each rendering took a week (even with our impressive internal rendering farm). 3DWD was in the lead for design, printing and managed the execution with a national partner.


Our team created previews for future tenants and possible uses for some of the spaces that were not yet leased.

The Outcome

We would like to congratulate our client on the beautiful extension to the property. We believe this will be a great addition to the The Shops at Willow Bend and are happy that our work made the project look great from day one.
