Re: Cityplace East: ACS/Xerox redevelopment

You guys are way off the mark. The plan was for this to be A big Box. There's never been a plan to redevelop it in a couple of years. It's always been planned for retail..This will be here for decades. Quit trying to sell false hope. The neighborhood wants better urban design not suburban drive thru...

I personally think there is little value added by expanding Klyde Warren. Much more value in decking i-30 or i-35 near Oak Cliff.

We're basically stuck with this project for the next 50 years, so at this point I hope that at least we get Target and Walmart to move here from their existing locations so those places can become the mixed-use development most of us want to see.

No, DART is inaccessible because it's a half-mile away from the station, and anyone who could afford to live in a hypothetical mixed-use residential development on the site is not going to accept that trade-off - they're just going to drive everywhere.
