Re: Uptown Dallas: McKinney & Olive Tower (335 FT | 21 ST)

I imagined the retail space being more popular there. I hope they don't try to fill it up with a bunch of expensive restaurants. That KWP / Arts District area needs more regular tourist friendly spots.

Re: Downtown Dallas: 2000 Ross Project

I agree. The hotel should go up and then the apts can follow as the market allows. I think the apts would actually do really well if built now though.

2) The apts at Welborn and Cedar Springs has a pretty nice exterior finish.
3) The new retail going into the Centrum on the Welborn side looks pretty nice. The re-development while not as grandiose as I thought it would be is still a nice improvement.

Re: Northpark Center

It looks like they just re-used a portion of the Coach store. Are they waiting on another space to open or is this just a pop-up? I assume the same will happen with Ruti and Akola since they are expected to open rather quickly.
