Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

They were lucky to get Whole Foods... WF almost completely backed out. WF has been concerned with the ability to make the store profitable, but their influx from the Amazon purchase allowed them to proceed.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Had a great meal at Texas Jam House last night. Place was fairly busy for 5pm.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

You have a very different population make up, both behaviorally and income-wise in the Frisco/Plano area.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Yep. It's always about demographics, and the area doesn't support it any more than Victory Plaza did in Dallas.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

We visited El Famoso this weekend as well, and it's absolutely awful. They won't make it 6 months with the rent they have and the terrible food quality.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Tried Yard House on Friday night around 6. Great food, awful service. Everyone was waiting around for BAR drinks 15 minutes or more at their tables. Food was great quality, great atmosphere, I only ended up having 2 beers with my meal and the same for my wife, because that's all that they could get ...

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

After living in Las Colinas for 20 years, I can say the following: 1) No area is better for living close to your work, which, regardless of what people say, they desire. 2) Lack of a good school district (Irving or Carollton-Farmers Branch don't compare to Frisco/Plano/Marcus) is a HUGE factor why t...

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

One more useless misuse of taxpayer money just like the Dallas bridge fiascos. How about fix the roads in Las Colinas instead or kill all the welfare programs draining the city south of Northgate.

More feet dragging on Whole Foods. No hiring going on, and the corporate HQ now reports "perhaps this fall" as an opening date, per an email inquiry.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

They were definitely not a good restaurant, but you also don't have a lot of others jumping on the chance at the market either in that general area.

The Pollo Tropical in the not quite yet Whole Foods parking lot has gone out of business (along with the rest of the Pollo Tropicals in North Texas).

Starbucks has one of the most robust expansion programs still underway today. They will open where they find areas that can be profitable (revenue surpasses expenses).

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Most of the north is in CFBISD and that's not a whole lot better. As a parent and a 20 year Las Colinas resident, I believe education options, not entertainment options are what's missing in Las Colinas. South Irving to me, is only a welfare state spending the money from taxes from north Irving, aga...

People aren't going to leverage that. Having worked at...

Given how terrible the traffic is in the area now, it's going to be non-functional within 18 months of now. It's the worst traffic in all of DFW between 4:45 and 5:45.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

^^^ I had high hopes for that Pollo Tropical, but was thoroughly disappointed. I had previously heard good things about the chain, but I felt the flavor was a but underwhelming for what I was expecting. Not bad, just bland. I don't see myself going back there any time soon. Too many good places to ...
