Re: Design District: Dallas Mavs Practice Facility

How much of the design district would be wiped off the map to get a new stadium? To me that would change the character of the area too much. I'm only eyeballin it using google maps, but it looks like the current AAC could mostly fit in the lot of land that Cuban just purchased. That particular lot ...

A good thing for Victory Park's future would be the stadium repurposed or torn down for another development project with a new arena across the street connected by various means...

Re: Austin - Gondola Cable Car

Traveling The Wire from terminus-to-terminus in air-conditioned 10-person cars traveling 12 miles per hour would take roughly 44 minutes. This isn’t necessarily the speediest way to get across town but soaring across the city over both highways and the Colorado River is certainly the more scenic op...

Re: The West End

Is it possible to walk from West End to Victory straight under the overpasses? Or does one have to make a detour up to the first street north of the under-bridge parking lots?

We really need to start tying areas together, especially with the Deck Park extension heading that way.

Re: Nintendo Switch

Some sort of badge-system would be cool for kids. Checking in at parks and museums, walking certain distances, visiting a Zoo, etc. could unlock reward points that could be used in a virtual store. I could see something like this being integrated into a new Nintendo title. Unfortunately, it's is not...

Re: DALLAS to HOUSTON High Speed Rail

The only thing I can think of off the top of my head is that TCR withdrew a case from a Houston court trying to gain access for surveyors on an owners land. I assume they have a better strategy in mind.

Nintendo Switch

Super excited about this!

Wondering how augmented reality might play into the Switch and how the success of Pokemon Go could still be influencing gaming outdoors and in urban environments.

Re: Dallas Love Field People Mover

There is a cross-wind runway that was decommissioned. Once that is closed it will only be used for taxiing aircraft. Sounds like they want a new entry into the airport on the north side as well as a streetcar style people mover going all the way up to northwest highway. I guess that makes the other ...
