How come the city doesn't push developers to try to be more created with parking? They seem to be picky about apt buildings having above ground parking, but then turn around and let surface lots continue to pop up. We take a step forward and then get pushed back a step.
I wish the parking lot at Elm/Main and Malcolm X would be developed. Even if a cool public space. A year round skate park with half-pipes should be built somewhere in Deep Ellum. That place would be packed and a great spot to people watch and be entertained.

I saw this tonight and it really stands out and makes you envision what they have in mind for that street. I'm excited to see what happens there. I hope the new highrise apt tower at the end of the street does happen. It's much needed to make this street re-do successful.
Yes, the scale of that building is perfect for that corner. But I won't hold my breath when it comes to Headington, especially what they've done to the Elm side behind Forty-Five Ten and that God awful driveway. This is what I'm worried about. His idea of an upscale Davis Building (Joule Residences...
With the land the Walgreens is on being attached to this property. I'd love to see that lot re-developed as well. If we had at least one side of McKinney more urban through that block. It would really help connect West Village to the rest of Uptown. Right now it just feels separated.
I hope this guess started this Summer. This is one of the projects I've been excited about and feel like it will complete the Arts District along with the new Hall Arts Residences. We need this building!
The new Johnston & Murphy is open in the previous 7 for all Mankind space and it now contains a full men's and women's line. There is construction plywood up at the old J&M location next to James Avery. Is this where Scotch & Soda will go? or is an existing retailer moving into that space?
LoMac has so many semi-urban towers with fancy steakhouses with valet drive thrus out front. The city should have not allowed it start developing that way. It's not going to generate much walking unfortunately. I still cringe at the horrible suburban Truluck's plopped right down on that street. Who ...
There appears to be some build out taking place in the previous Idle Rich space on McKinney. I don't know why they didn't just let Idle Rich stay open. I felt like they were a good neighborhood spot that didn't get too wild.
Supposedly Saint Laurent and Balenciaga will move to the vacant spots in the luxury wing.. which leads to question what will take their spots in HPV Very interesting. I hope HP Village continues to do well. Some stores are a better fit at NorthPark. There are multiple spaces opening up at NorthPark...
I feel like NorthPark is getting heavy on makeup stores. I remember when they got all of the high end watch stores around the same time. Now it's makeup. I would like to see more unique clothing stores that aren't ultra luxury.
