Re: Frisco: Stonebriar Centre mall

That hotel will be the best looking piece of that mall. Stonebriar looks awful. I KNOW! Stonebriar is LONG overdue for an exterior and interior makeover... The entire look and feel is so tacky and awful, for being one of the best performing malls in the country I'm surprised they haven't modernized...

Re: Frisco: Music City

I was thinking about that earlier, The venues all have different amounts of seating which are geared to varying ranks of traveling bands/artists. Plus not all venues will host all genres of music. Haven't heard of an EDM concert being held at House of Blues... I Wonder what kinds of music will be pl...

Re: Frisco: Stonebriar Centre mall

It looks great! I vaguely remember some early articles about this hotel was that it was supposed to be completed in 2019... Not sure about that now. Maybe 2020?

Re: Frisco: Wade Park

I really want the land to just be given to the city, and let it sit for a while until its time for the next big thing. With all that land in such a prime location on the DNT so many amazing things could be done there. I'd hate for it to go to waste.

Ugh i just saw the preliminary plans and it looks so basic.... If they cant pull off anything new and exciting in those 7 acres then it will most definitely flop. :/

Re: Frisco: Wade Park

Okay now thats a concept. Turning the land that wade park was supposed to go on, into a giant waterpark. The langham resort could stay and act as the Waterparks resort. The hole would probably still be used as the hotel's parking garage though.. :/

Oh well.

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

Nope, they moved it to early 2018 :/ The group had been expecting to hear by Friday, which was when they were told Amazon would have its shortlist. Partnership spokeswoman Dianne Chase said that the volume of proposals means this week will no longer be the decision point. “We are informed that a sho...

Re: Shraman South Asian Museum

I thought there was to be an iconic building included in this development.


from the renderings it already looks pretty iconic to me...

the design is just fabulous. fingers-crossed it gets built. especially with that large lawn infront of it. It would be quite spectacular.

Re: The Railhead

In most of the suburbs, it's against zoning to put housing up against highways due to noise, horrific effects of pollution, etc. Most require a buffer close to 100 yards. Makes sense, although near the shops of legacy they are putting a 25 story residential tower along the DNT, and its right on the...

Re: Frisco: Wade Park

LOL Wade park is really tanking. At this point the same old shops concept is getting exhausted and overused, Wade Park needs a major entertainment venue/attraction or a MAJOR...MAJOR corporate relocation in its office tower section if it wants to be successful, because it doesn't seem like the Langh...

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

That frisco video.... they need to delete it... its extremely unprofessional. It would be more suitable if they were trying to attract a little restaurant or something but... for AMAZON? I really cant believe Jeff thought that was a cute idea.
