Re: DFW Economy

Sad to see the Ritz-Carlton officially get awarded a Forbes 5-Star rating and then tank before the high wears off.

Thanks for all the info.

How bad is it at hotels and restaurants currently or projected for the next 60 days, any of you who have an internal anecdote about it. I know one hotel on McKinney is taking a massive hit banquet/conference/sport teams side.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Guarantee some Metra stations aren't or weren't in the mid-2000s.

I can attest Metra UP North line was pretty solid though. At least in my own observations between Waukegan and northside - Rogers Park. Great Lakes station was actually a nice sight to see daily.

I'm a little rusty, but, I think this method is similar to complex/integrated building technique. Whatever it is, it's not used often here it seems. A lot can be said for this technique, though. I believe it's fairly common to some extent in Russia, Middle East, SE Asia. Probably elsewhere as well. ...
