Re: Horseshoe Project: I-35 + I-30 Downtown

I think that part of the 30 is so messed up that no matter where that connection is it'll be a back up. I did travel from northbound 35 to Woodall Rogers yesterday at 4:45p and it was a amazingly easy and traffic free. Going from westbound 30 to southbound 35 was also relatively pain-free as well, b...

Re: Cityplace East: ACS/Xerox redevelopment

Not the best quality photo, but here's another view of the Cityplace Tower lights: https://fwkpig-bn1305.files.1drv.com/y4meq4mEnWqs7mcfKQ06lLVWSCd7fQjaYSVKifU6-mTORrMOyK4DikKOnCKuY8fBGzk-UaYROrvKeY1EeoQAmfoCyH_ZJ8YexHVGMyEK3T3QP6hDDDdzrVAsTkw45QeQHmTrbS2hypB5iGJxz3YS3_JGrHqXFDT3wMlrR1fZKvTN7sQvsERe...

Re: Downtown: Klyde Warren Park

I'd imagine the types of people who commute and want to park in a parking garage are more likely to visit the park on a weekend anyway. I think these are primarily the people that are from Plano/Frisco/etc who come from areas where immediate parking is just assumed instead of the Dallas residents t...

Re: V Bikes: Bike sharing program in Downtown

Saw 2 bikes randomly sitting on the side of the Katy Trail last night, both in very conspicuous areas and it was hard to tell if people were leaving them there because they were using it or they were put there for cheap advertising. They weren't attached to any bike rack, just parked to the side jus...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Business Openings and Closings

Parlay Sports Club soft opens tonight. 8p-2a. Pretty quick turnaround. I have a feeling this place will have an identity crisis between being a sports bar and a dance club.

I have no figures to back it up but I've heard on multiple sites that Lufthansa's flight is heavy on passengers connecting in FRA to India

Re: Uptown Dallas: M Line Tower (240 FT / 20 ST)

Looks like the cheapest option is a studio for $1,575/mo, and the next level up is $1,955/mo. Eesh, is that really standard for these new apartment buildings in Uptown these days? Not only that, but that's just to live in the midrise. If you want to live in the tower it starts at $2,150/mo for a 75...

Re: Uptown Dallas: New Hotel at Hall and Oak Grove

I agree now that this is not the hotel site or project. We should soon know what it is. A rent-a-fence is now erected around the lot but there no new signage showing what is coming. Looks like they are building a condo building on that lot. Be interesting to see how tall it is. Crescent Collections...

Re: DFW Airport

DFW has 3 Cat III approaches while DEN has 4 Cat III approaches (approach required in dense fog). That likely contributes to the ~54 difference in capacity in instrument conditions on page 12 of the linked PDF above. Throw in the fact that DFW has to fight with DAL for airspace while DEN is essentia...

Re: Uptown Dallas: Central Market at McKinney and Lemmon

I live across the street from this. The black fence posts only surround the parking lot and not the entire building. Curious if they're trying to keep people from parking in there/cutting across the lot or have had problems with attempted break ins. For awhile the parking lot lights weren't turning ...
