Re: Downtown Dallas: AMLI Fountain Place (562 FT / 46 ST)

I’ve heard some disappointing rumors from FP building operations folks that the plan is to only cover two sides of the garage with glass: the side facing FP and the side facing Ross. Last I looked, only one glass panel is on the garage at this time. Why is this disappointing? The back of the garage...

Re: Lower Greenville Development

Leases are contracts. Every contract is negotiable. Your math is not stupid. Unless Wal-Mart thinks this property is so amazingly special there is no way they are paying full-bill on large numbers of closed properties (not even for a tax write off) without somebody up high questioning that decision...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

What? Amazon does pay taxes, fox news (a registered entertainment network in court) and Trump aren't reliable sources of information. So, how about the Securities and Exchange Commission instead? "Additionally, in its latest annual report to the Securities and Exchange Commission, Amazon said ...

Re: Arts District: 1900 Pearl (362 FT | 25 ST)

Tear-downs is a problem in all sunbelt cities. Fascinating comment. Please elaborate further as to why you think this is unique to all sunbelt cities, whether this problem ever occurs in northern regions and, if not, why you think that is the case. When did they say it was a unique problem. They ju...

Hard to imagine a million dollars in damages... unless of course, the landlord let them operate for an...
