But, it's not like that part of CB would lend itself to urban design or high rise like the 7th projects, so a strip center should be fine.
Who said anything about highrises? The 7th Street projects aren't appropriate on that part of Camp Bowie yet, but there are near infinite other variations to consider.
Camp Bowie absolutely lends itself to urban designs (the great thing about traditional urbanism is that it has variations that work very nearly anywhere). If we decide that x part of the street "doesn't lend itself to urban design" then it never will. Bit by bit, it can change. This sort of classic, simple, modest form (in whatever style of architecture):
Would start re-shaping Camp Bowie into a form that's more walkable and versatile (and this example isn't really that far removed from the older structures on Camp Bowie nearer to downtown). Bring the buildings to the sidewalk, put the parking on-street/to the sides & rear, and add in even a single second floor for other uses to reduce & eliminate trips. Over time, the new form creates a traditional neighborhood center setting, as it is redeveloped lot by lot, block by block. It slowly starts to create a place rather than a series of pad sites & pavement.
