So does Houston have a plan to provide a connection the their light rail system or will you just come out of the station and have to take uber or a car to get into the urban core of the city?

If this were in the middle of Klyde Warren Park it would appear much larger but at the base of several high rises and an 18 story video wall it scales down. I think it fits great in the overall scheme of this space. Can't wait to see it all in person.

Stampede 66 and Water Grill were high end destination restaurants which are having a harder time in Dallas as there are so many new options in that market. At the same time we have a gap down there of more casual options but those models can't pay the extreme rents that are are demanding.
