Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

This should be a correct map showing the recent boom in development in the Las Colinas area around Lake Carolyn. Would love to see some more vertical development next on the waterfront.

Re: Frisco: Wade Park

I loved the potential of this development. The tenants were unique (Patagonia, Rustic, iPic, Hotel ZaZa, Steel City Pops, etc.) compared to a lot of other mixed use developments in the area. The retail and restaurant tenants far exceed those of developments like City Line, but they’re missing the em...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

We'll be a denser Los Angeles without the beach before we know it! Decades of shade from New York have made people have no idea how dense LA is. It's extremely dense, it just doesn't have the same peak as some of the older cities. I may have been exaggerating a bit, but in the time I have spent in ...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

I love the Victory Park bid. Seems like a great place for Amazon to do what they did in Seattle. Take a "good" infill neighborhood and transition it to a "great" one. In the event that Amazon does a best and final process eliminating the field down to say 5 cities proposals, I se...

Re: Uptown Dallas: M Line Tower (240 FT / 20 ST)

Is it just me, or did this turn out way better looking than I anticipated?

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

This building is actually starting to look a LOT better with that glass up on the parking garage. You really can't even tell the bottom half is parking. I think it will turn out to be a decent looking building, not great.

Ilume Design District

Couldn't find a thread on this project, but wanted to know if anyone had any status updates on this??? This would make a great addition along the Stemmons corridor as you enter downtown with the addition of Bleu Ciel and the Katy apartments in Victory Park. Is this project still alive? http://www.5g...

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

This looks like a 1980's building that belongs at Keller Springs and the tollway. Even that wouldn't have this much parking!

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

I absolutely hate this building. What a waste. Even throwing in some exciting lighting package at night can't spruce this one up

Re: Knox: Oliver + Central (18 ST)

Found this rendering from 2016, are we still thinking this is close to the final design? https://dallasnews.imgix.net/1477879903-HIRISE_0707BUS_44832569.jpg?auto=format,enhance&crop=faces,entropy&fit=crop&q=40&or=0&w=500&h=265%20500w,%20https://dallasnews.imgix.net/1477879903...

I really liked the preliminary designs for this building, it's a shame it may not happen.

Re: Texas Live!

You have the excessive wait times associated with mass transit, but once you get on your ride your stuck in the same traffic as everybody who is driving. Just to make it worse, your isolated into one lane, stop every two hundred feet , and if you have a connection to make, it seems DART is determin...

Uptown - Warsaw Restaurant Office Tower

Anyone know what happened to this project? It's been two years and I haven't seen or heard anything since the initial release.

Re: Downtown Dallas: Hillwood Urban's ~50 storey tower on former BoA motorcourt

This would be a gamechanger!

Thoughts on the likelihood this gets built?
