Re: Trinity River Park

Is there any real update on this ? I mean the standing wave is being removed, and the Toll road was killed last year. The core of engineers already approved the design for the park that doesn't have the toll road in it years ago, so everything should be ready to go. Then on top of that 6 months ago ...

Re: Cityplace East: ACS/Xerox redevelopment

Wow this is very surprising and unexpected. It sure would be great if Perot would get off of his ass and build Something on that land in downtown that is better looking than that ugly ass glass cylinder he teased us with a while back. Hopefully the FAA doesn't do the usual and try to kill it. And th...

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 i...

Re: Collin Creek Mall

This plan looks promising, if a little too hopeful, but I'll take it. That mall is fast on its way to being what happened to valley view. But please let's stop with the nonsense that this is a site for Amazon. Its not. If anyone bothered to read any of the requirements, of which Plano as a whole doe...

Re: Frisco: The Star

Blue Star Land has filed plans with Frisco — three more office buildings at The Star, say DBJ and DMN, 7 to 12 stories tall. Believe it or not, they’re not for Amazon. https://www.bizjournals.com/dallas/news/2018/03/13/blue-star-land-plans-office-space-star-in-frisco.html Well Frisco (and Plano or ...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

Here is something to consider.. Do we think Dallas having a high speed rail to Houston and potentially Ft. worth, Austin and San Antonio with the planned station right next to downtown is a major advantage or factor that Amazon is taking into consideration? Or is it such a unique thing to America th...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

Ah I liked that place but yes, Al was a turd. I do want the part scene in uptown to get toned down a bit but not die altogether, nothing wrong with having multiple party districts and I do lie Deep Ellum and Uptown having completely different styles. Henderson aveneue and Greenvile Ave will continue...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

I think you are all forgetting the huge development potential spots for an HQ2 along the Trinity owned by Matthews southwest which is right where the high speed rail terminal will be. Not only that, the NCTCOG also just announced the building of water gardens all throughout that area along with fina...

Re: Trinity River Park

Part of that vision is already moving forward actually. The Water Gardens project down in the Cedars is moving ahead with NCTCOG money already. Matthews Southwest has been pushing that forward to make their land acquisitions along Riverfront Blvd a lot more desirable for things like an Amazon. Most...

Re: DTD Riverfront Project

Isn't there a plan to decommission and remove those jails? If I had to guess, those jails will be gone before anybody has to see them out of their nextdoor windows, which may say as much about this project's prospects as it does about the jail's longevity. Seriously, this. That damn jail needs to g...
