Re: Cityplace West/West Village: Residential Tower (~250 FT / 23 ST) / Hilton Canopy (8 ST)

Looks like Nazca closed. There were locks on the doors two weeks ago and the other day I saw what looked like an info center for the new Canopy

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

Live in WV and go to VP reasonably often. If an Uber is 7 min and $5.50 why would I take 30 min to save $2.50 with DART?

I wish DART was something else, but it's for commuters to downtown and not much else.

Re: I-345

I believe a key part of Patrick's kennedy's original plan for removal (in addition to street-level boulevards) was the upgrades/completion of the Peak/Haskell, Hall, and Fitzhugh corridors to connect neighborhoods to the East to 75.

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

If Dallas lands this (if Cedars, DE, or VP) the streetcar extensions the D360 plan envisioned stretching outwards from the core would probably get accelerated to the winning neighborhood. A DE loop tying in with the Main St DTD route approved a week or two ago could hit up Expo Park nicely if that w...

Hunts and Perots teaming up... wow. That is an incredible group that will have no trouble marshaling resources and getting incentives.

Re: The Cost of City Living

That seems high to be on that side of the highway. My girlfriends unit in Wrst Village is about 850 and 1400/mo and had nice finish outs. The problem is that Guy is on a summer-to-summer lease which is always a couple hundred more a month than an off peak to off peak.

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

I think Headington and DTD gets the win here if our region gets the nod. The ability to sell that your site is at the crossroads of future D2 and for lack of a better term "D1" would be huge. Central downtown location, spinning a "revitalization" story (all those parking lots), d...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

As much as people think of Amazon as a tech company (and it totally is don't get me wrong) it would not surprise me if they made HQ2 basically their retail segment's HQ. This is an area where Dallas excels moreso than almost any other metro because we have such a strong retail/consumer products base...

Re: DFW Airport

The talk of a PHX or IAH style terminal redo on airliners isn't based on anything at all. I wouldn't even say it's from particularly knowledgeable posters that are saying it. It makes sense AA wants to strategically evaluate since you have major decisions to make about the best spot of the legacy te...

I hate to lose food in Victory but Naga was totally inedible.

Re: Cityplace East: ACS/Xerox redevelopment

I live by this intersection at the Monterey and used to belong to Larry north and then LA Fitness across the highway. Although they're very close I hated crossing that freeway for some intangible reason. I think part of it is just that you feel very exposed and there's just a lot of lanes to cross. ...

Re: DART D2 Subway

Am I naive to think any of these three options look fine? I feel like most of the ideas I disliked have been weeded out.

Do others have thoughts in which is best? Perhaps Commerce simple because it has a larger cachement?
