Re: Arlington: Mass Transit

Arlington is ditching the MAX bus, replacing it with on-demand shuttles. An experiment, essentially.

Re: Downtown Dallas: The Drever

I thought I was losing it when I saw the display the other night. Looks like a reflection at first, and then I saw it moving. I was too far away (Victory Park) to make out anything it was saying though. Certainly an eye-catcher!

Re: Victory Park: Cinépolis /The 23 (~273 FT / 23 ST)

Those apartments do have decent density I'm sure, what has really always bothered me is the way they address Houston St, a fence with a parking lot behind. Bleck.

Insane to see how dense the area has gotten. Nothing but exciting. And that rooftop view down Lamar is a stunner.

Foster is probably my favorite architect ever, this is immensely exciting that this could happen. It does'nt seem like one of his stronger skyscraper designs, but I love it from those 2 renders.

Re: Downtown Dallas Residential Count

The comments about Fort Worth are amusing... I can attest that OKC and Ft. Worth in particular seem to think it is unique for having downtown revitalization, and many people in Ft.

Most exciting potential development in DFW. San Francisco and Philadelphia are currently working on joining the 1,000 foot club, Seattle and Miami have 1,000 footers proposed and LA, NYC and Chicago are working on adding to theirs. Would love to see Dallas join the list.

Victory Park is the place I most often go in Dallas since I go to a lot of Stars games. Outside of the plaza itself, which barely has anything of interest, nothing in the area "helps" the arena. There's no sports bars, slim pickings on restaurants, etc. It feels like the arena was the last...
