About the Douglas Design District

The Douglas Design District has over 300 locally owned businesses, including over 40 home and design businesses featuring antiques, furniture, home accessories, paint, flooring, kitchen design, granite, graphic design, web design and more. Over a dozen great places to eat, drink and be merry, including some of the best local breweries in Wichita. You can satisfy your need for sweets at our bakeries, donut shop, and candy stores. Shop international spices, coffees and teas. Get pampered at a variety of hair and beauty salons. Fine jewelry, clothing stores and more await to help you find the perfect gift for someone special in your life or maybe something special just for you!

The Douglas Design District is a complete, wonderfully diverse community of business, retail and residential neighborhoods including the popular and historic College Hill - and we plan to make it better with the East Douglas Improvement Plan.


Locally owned and independent businesses, dedicated to pursuing and promoting our “avenue of creativity” for Wichita to Shop, Live, and Dine... By Design.


The District will be a magnet for locally owned business. We’ll set trends, attract followers, and become the destination location to “Shop Local” in Wichita.

In early January of 2007 the Douglas Design District was just an idea.  Today it's a fast growing association of over a hundred caring and LOCAL businesses between Washington and Glendale. The Douglas Design District website is now online and we hope you enjoy what you find here.
