Right. There are still too many parking lots but thankfully they’re slowing going away.

There has been a crazy amount of growth in the CBD but, unfortunately, we had a bunch of vacant bulidings to fill. Now that most of those have been filled, we'll probably see these parking lots disappearing more quickly.

Very true. Dallas has come a long way though. It’s exciting to think about the high possibility of nothing but new construction in Downtown.

Even though the vast majority of new towers over the last few years have been in the 25+/- story range, the result has been a significant increase in density in the urban core.

And Dallas is now starting to get a much larger share of 40+ story towers going up, which are helping beef up the skyline with sharp points piercing the density.

Now, all we need are a handful of 50+ story towers to sprout in the Victory Park and Uptown districts, along with a hoped for supertall or two (Perot Tower, Harwood Forum, Smart District) and all of a sudden center city Dallas will suddenly look like the the urban center of the third largest metro in the nation as we seize that title from Chicago by 2030.
