Re: Trinity River Park

If we get another rain event like 1908 I'd hate to think of what else could happen. That would put everything that was under water then under water again which would likely stretch all the way to Fort Worth. Not to even mention issues like the Lake Lewisville dam.

Unfortunate but the site still seems like a prime spot for development, especially with the HSR station sitting right there. Hopefully somebody will see that potential and move on it.

So looking down at this just a few minutes ago it appears like they are finishing up the roof without going any higher. They capped the elevator shafts with concrete and to be honest it just looks like they are about done. So this multi acre garage is just that.
