Re: West End: Factory SIX03

So there will be now retail components here at all? I'm not too upset if there isn't as I'm just so glad to see this building come to life again.

Re: New condo construction

Well our highrise/midrise condo development may be lagging, but Dallas' embrace of the urban townhome should be acknowledged. Townhomes have totally transformed some of Dallas' neighborhoods and they seem to be selling as quickly as they're built. I was in east Dallas a few weeks ago, around the Fit...

Re: Harwood District: Blue Ciel

I went to Southlake this weekend and noticed a sign advertising Blue Ciel off 114 near the airport. It said something like "stop commuting". I wonder if a ad like that will help the building attract buyers.

Re: Downtown Dallas: Couryard by Marriot -12 Stories

I've never seen a Courtyard Marrriot look like this. They're usually pretty understated (and I might add, one of my favorite hotel chains) This is just ugly. Hopefully it will be altered by the time it's completed.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Okay muncien, I have an answer for you. I emailed the leasing agent for the Las Colinas Village shopping center to see if he had an idea. He was kind enough to reply back right away. He said a hotel will be going up on that site. I wonder what brand it will be. A hotel seems like an odd choice here...

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Modern Market is very good. Pollo is terrible. I did try Pollo, I wouldn't call it terrible, but it definitely did not blow me away and I have no desire to go back. How much space is left in this shopping center? Modern Market and Zoe's Kitchen are good additions, but the rest of the tenant lineup ...

Kelley USA wrote:I'm back!!!! Yes, permits have been pulled for Whole Foods. It's a go which is nice to see. That shopping center is dead on weekends and in the evening so it'll be nice to have some activity when WF opens.

Right now, it seems like Modern Market is doing very well. Haven't tried it yet.

Re: Las Colinas/North Irving Development

Looks like work may have finally started again at the Whole Foods Store. A construction trailer and several of those big metal containers have been parked next to the store. And the parking lot in front of the store has been fenced off.
