Pegasus Park


Reset the boundaries of what’s possible


Lyda Hill Philanthropies has spent years exploring two different concepts: building a biotech innovation cluster and building a nonprofit shared space. After studying best practices in both areas, we are excited to bring these two ideas together as part of a broader new redevelopment: Pegasus Park.  Convinced that there is no better time to accelerate life science and healthcare discoveries and boost nonprofit resiliency, we are pleased to share with you the details of this new project.

In July 2020,  J. Small Investments announced plans for Pegasus Park, a 23-acre mixed-use social purpose real estate development in Dallas designed to bolster local biotech, nonprofit and corporate innovation.  Among the many exciting things happening at Pegasus, we are particularly excited that the development will include a biotech hub and a nonprofit hub – learn more below.

As the global health and economic crises persist, we are optimistic that the vision for Pegasus Park will offer hope for a brighter future.
