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

Glad to see Amli making some vertical strides. Now I wonder how long it will be for Hillwood to snag a tenant for their signature tower next door... It’s been 5 years and things really haven’t progressed at all with this tower. At this point, I would be ecstatic if ground breaking occurred before t...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

Arlington never had a shot at HQ2. There is no mass transit available and traffic around that area is the absolute worst. Plus, why would a bunch of Mariners fans want to work in the old Rangers ballpark?

Re: Downtown Dallas: The Drever

I pray to Buddha they do not end up demolishing this building. That would be absolutely horrible. This poor building is cursed. I think the chances of this building being demolished are slim to none. If Elm Place were destroyed, it would hold the record for tallest building ever demolished in the e...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

It doesn't matter Amazon showed their hand. Dallas' bid is merely bargaining power over Metro Atlanta's bid. Nothing to be excited about. Other than the Amazon lobbyist visiting Georgia (which Amazon has already publicly stated that the visit was unrelated to HQ2), what evidence do you have that su...

Re: Dallas Smart District

This is exciting, but dont hold your breath. HOPEFULLY they have another tenant in mind other than Amazon, because the Victory Park proposal is probably going to be the winner with how much work Amazon has done with Perot and the other names attached at victory park. If it is a true thing that actu...

Re: Dallas Smart District

Whoa, this is promising. I'm sure a streetcar line could be looped through this area to snag this kind of investment. Doesn't one of the proposed D2 DART lines also run right by City Hall on the north side of this project? Also, at "about 200 feet taller than Bank of America Tower," this ...

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

There won't ever be a supertall in uptown because of FAA regulations. This site is probably the closest a supertall could possibly get to uptown. Also, the city is planning to extend KWP to field street , which will actually connect uptown to this site. I don't think this is accurate, since Woodall...

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

I'm sorry, I don't understand your reasoning. To you it doesn't make sense to built a supertall next to Uptown (which I would consider the center of business today and in the recent past and is pretty much built-out). But it makes sense in another part of the CBD or The Cedars in the future? Just t...

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

That's how I feel as well. I'm sure there is a lot of demand to live in "the middle of things" in Dallas, currently, but I also realize that Dallas is a changing city with a lot of room to grow. A decade or two from now, "the middle of things" might be in a different part of tow...
