Re: Downtown Dallas: Statler Hotel & Residences + Future DMN Offices (Old Statler Hilton + Old Library)

I just wish they would re-open Jackson westbound. Sad it's been closed this long for this hideous addition.

Re: Cityplace East: 2711 N. Haskell

I'm no aviation expert by any means, but it does seem in low clouds/visibility planes approaching Love Field feel awfull...

Re: East Dallas: Ross Avenue Corridor

Last summer there was the lawsuit with the city and Republic Ranch/Pilikia, as they were operating outside their intended use. Just noticed this: http://www.xoxodallas.com/.

Re: AT&T Discovery District

Looking great, and just think, they could have gone to Legacy West like everyone else. DTD really hit jackpot when we kept them here. Fun fact. I work for AT&T and back when we were AT&T Wireless (our own entity), we consolidated our Dallas offices at Legacy but on the east side across from...

Re: Downtown Dallas: City Lights

How is anything I stated "horrible"? It's stating the obvious. But to answer your question, good quality buildings that are strong. It's a known fact that developers notoriously cut corners to maximize profit. I live in an apartment complex most likely built cheaper than that one, just do...

Re: Dallas Love Field People Mover

... Plus, you could move the ride-share pickup/dropoff to the same place to lighten the load on the main airport access road. One of the benefits of taking a ride-share to the airport is being dropped off right at the door. Why would anyone want to be dropped off a few thousand feet away when you c...

Oh no, the back lot of the Melrose (old Bronx location) takes that prize in spades. At least the parking lot is serving a need and it also does not front Cedar Springs.

Re: Uptown Dallas: Central Market at McKinney and Lemmon

It appears the the second kroger planned for Hall St. has stalled as well. Uptown/East dallas sure can use a second full service grocery to take some of the pressure off of the cityplace kroger. I've have not been able to grasp the reason for another Kroger that close, especially with changing buyi...
