Re: Victory Park 3.0

So, based on the Planning Commision application, it will be 39 floors and 432 feet. NOT taller than the W after all. So, somebody saw the 39 floors and made an incorrect assumption?

Re: Could Dallas land Amazon HQ '2'?

I was at Kroger's yesterday and picked up a six-pack of Miller Lite to take home to watch NFL Football and was properly informed by a store employee that I couldn't buy the beer until 12 Noon. I thought to myself, Amazon would not want to HQ in a place as backward as this.
