Re: I-30 South & East Dallas reconstruction

I am wondering if this project follows CityMap guidelines? I was under the impression that they wanted to narrow the highway in order to help close the gap between downtown/east Dallas and the Cedars/Fairpark areas.

Re: Downtown - Pacific Plaza Park

The old Southland Life building is what's a real eye sore. To me it looks like a giant shoebox in the sky. If there is a building in DTD that needs to be demolished I would pick this one.
